BBC Friday 15 February 2019 – The Charlie King Show “Your Ideal Client Avatar”

Your Ideal Client Avatar (ICA) – Who’s an IDEAL client for you? Not just someone who pays your bill on time, but someone you’re excited to serve? That person that makes you get out of bed and look forward to your day?

When you get clear on your ICA, you can speak directly to client needs, directly to their struggles. Clients will self-select that you’re the “provider of choice” for their specific needs. From this talk you’ll have in hand key questions that can unlock a full book of clients that make you feel like you’re work makes a difference, and so do you! Charlie on  linkedin.com.  Charlie’s website: heroicfatherhood.com.

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!

Be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, me hearties, as serial entrepreneurials, we all be business wise!

There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.

She and her husband – who met while working in a homeless shelter – moved to Bainbridge Island four years ago and have 5-year-old twins” (Karen West, Helpline House Special Assignment Volunteer Writer, 2 Mar. 2018). Maria on LinkedIn: linkedin.com/in/maria-metzler-593a1a155/

BBC Friday 21 Dec 2018 – Doing Business On Bainbridge In 2019, w/ Leslie Schneider

Join us this BBC Friday for a year-end conversation with Leslie Schneider, OfficeXpats co-owner and longtime BBC Regular: “COBI and Bainbridge Business in 2019” (it’s just around the corner).

Leslie will not only talk about cool City stuff possibly upcoming in 2019, but she also wants to access her BBC Board Of Directors, to pick our collective brains. She appreciates us — and we APPRECIATE her (and Jason) for their years of hosting the BBC!

Leslie moved to Bainbridge Island in 2009, where her son graduated from BHS in 2015. She started a coworking business in 2011 called OfficeXpats with partner Jason Omens. OfficeXpats is a shared office space and collaborative hub for independent professionals, and it won the Chamber Of Commerce small business of the year award for 2014 for its support of local business and the community. Leslie has also served on the boards of Sustainable Bainbridge and the Kitsap Regional Library Foundation.

This Friday Dec. 21 – The first BBC UGLY HOLIDAY SWEATER CONTEST (and maybe the last?). There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd … ugliest sweater. Thanks (I think…) to Paula Weissinger, State Farm Insurance & “Friends Of The Post Office,” for sponsoring this exciting new event!

Be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, me hearties, as serial entrepreneurials, we all be 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 Dec 2018 – Looking Forward – Looking Back w/ Alyse McConnell

Join us for our (can you believe it?) 6th annual “Looking Back, Looking Forward” conversation with Alyse McConnell of A2 Coaching Group.

“People with goals succeed because they know where they’re going.” ~Earl Nightingale.

Alyse is delighted to lead us once again in closing out the year providing a fresh start to what we want to create next. Though the annual change in the calendar is just like any other day, it’s a great opportunity to look at where we’ve been, celebrate the journey, and learn its lessons — looking ahead to what we want to create next. This year’s conversation will focus on a new aspect of goal setting: finding a clarity that takes the heavy lifting out of achievement.

Alyse’s has spent the last year learning about this process, and she is excited to offer to us some insights!  Former owner of Paper Products and founding BBC organizer, Alyse is noted for her organizational expertise in systems planning and for helping and motivating her clients to achieve breakthrough results in business and in life. Visit Alyse on LinkedIn.com.

Be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, me hearties, as serial entrepreneurials, we all be 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!
