BBC Friday 21 July 2017: “We Are Mortal – Now What?” w/ Betty Herman & Meg Mitchell

Over the past years at BBC we’ve talked about business continuity planning, business and community emergency preparedness & incident management, the end of the world.

Today, under the delightful and compassionate guidance of longtime BBC regular Betty Herman (Elder Resources LLC) and retired social worker Meg Mitchell, we will discuss our shared mortality and End Of Life care options, specifically related to the advocacy group End Of Life Washington (endoflifewa.org). Betty’s contact info: 360.471.5572. (For this Friday’s meeting:“if you have any specific questions please call Betty, so she can be making up answers ahead of time instead of on the spot!”).

Succession Planning: “a strategy for passing each key leadership role within a company to someone else in such a way that the company continues to operate … [and] run smoothly after the business’s most important people move on to new opportunities, retire or pass away” (investopedia.com/terms/s/succession-planning.asp). Other resources (Dave) hospicediary.com by Amy Getter & suicidebynaturalcauses.org.

Be here, be free, be mortal and businesswise. For, in a sense, my fellow humans from Earth, as serial entrepreneurs, we’re all business wise!

So invite your friends and associates to come join us for this exciting non-virtual non-cloud event in real time and real space…and another delicious cup of BBC!

BBC Friday 14 July 2017 – Technology Roundtable

Join us this fine mid-summer BBC Friday for an SSL and web-security technology roundtable, with tech masters Larry, Moe, & Curly.

What’s the big deal with “https://”? What are SSL certificates? What do they do? How do they work?  Do they affect one’s website security, SEO? How about SSL and WordPress or Weebly? And what’s Google’s role in all this? Does SSL have anything to do with Google/DeepMind reverse engineering the human brain? (MIRI)

Be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, as serial entrepreneurs, we’re all business wise!
