This BBC Friday we have Two Totally Trippy BBC Regulars sharing their stories: Lyn Lindbergh, Couch to Active (couchtoactive.com), and Susan O’Meara,  Branding & Marketing (linkedin.com/in/susanomeara).

Lyn: “I will share some behind-the-scenes steps for starting a successful online business. Covering key lessons learned around self-built websites, we’ll consider DIY graphics, blogging, Facebook LIVE, and how to monetize without needing to fill one’s blog with adsI also have a networking question queued up for the group to help us all connect and succeed.” Lyn is founder of COUCH to ACTIVE, the missing link between wanting to exercise and actually doing it.

Susan: “A word wrangler and ex-corporate wonk (aren’t there a few of us at BBC?) — I harness storytelling to help brands, businesses, and individuals grow and shine. I will talk about  ‘unbranding’ (is it the same as de-branding?) — and share some stories from my colorful career in the U.S. and abroad.” Susan is a WordSmith, writer, editor, journalist, and branding-marketing consultant. 

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 13 April 2018 – “BI Parking Garage & Island Businesses” Roundtable Discussion

This BBC Friday – Something A Little Different: Local Issues Related To Local Island Business (that’s you & me)

OK. BAINBRIDGE ISLAND PARKING! So let’s do what BBC does really well, strategy-roundtable a topic for generating creative serendipitous wacky side-ways thinking ideas on a relevant subject  — especially one still in the open-discussion stage. Here’s a little background on the subject of Island Parking and related issues:

“Downtown Bainbridge Island has unique parking conditions due to its island location, its proximity to Seattle, its seasonal tourism, and the presence of a well-trafficked commuter ferry terminal adjacent to Downtown. The City of Bainbridge Island is undergoing a study to look at the on- and off-street parking system in Downtown. The project will include data collection and analysis, findings, public outreach, stakeholder engagement, task force meetings, and recommended strategies.” More on the subject at bainbridgewa.gov.

Some more relevant informative useful links to glance at before tomorrow (take your time, have fun, be creative): 
– Downtown parking strategy (includes Data Collection Findings):
bainbridgewa.gov/DocumentCenter/View/9389
– Stakeholder Interviews summary

– Bainbridge Island Review: Downtown merchants rallying behind Bainbridge parking garage idea (1/17)

BBC Friday 6 April 2018 – Business Storytelling Improv

This BBC Friday we’re opening up the table for 5-10 minute “tell you’re business story” opportunities. That gives time for 3 or 4 “business improv” spots.
(Let Steve Kersten know if you’d like to reserve a spot ahead of time.)

“Anyone who would like to step up and give their life/business story this Friday — your opportunity is knocking! (Again we would have time for only 3 or 4.) 
It’s a first come, first serve, event, so before Friday email Steve Kersten ([email protected]) to reserve a spot. And if only one or two have contacted Steve there may still be time for a few more stories.

Back in our early pioneering days at the Blue Ocean Cafewe often started out with offering a 5-10 minute spot for personal introduction, where a BBC regular could share something about their journey.
Back then it often started with, “I came here from Minnesota xxx years ago….” Almost a decade later, we’ve had folks joining us from Scotland, Sequim, So. Africa, and San Francisco.

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!
