Join us this BBC Friday for Story Telling Time
The forth founding principle of BBC states: The BBC offers its members the opportunity to build connections of trust between each others companies and services, sharing skills and specialties, and critiquing professional copy. Part of the way we started out building trust in one another’s businesses was to share our stories, who we are as business owners and entrepreneurs. Story telling.
Thus, for those first months meeting at the Blue Ocean Cafe, members — BBC regulars, those having attended at least 2 meetings attain the coveted “BBC Regular” status — members would take five or ten minutes and tell stories, about their journey into their present business or into a previous business incarnation or their journey from Minnesota to the Puget Sound, or their journey from animal husbandry or novelist-in-a-cave to network administrator, human resources specialist, office ergonomics resource, or personal financial adviser.
So, invite your friends and associates to join us for this exciting event … and another delicious cup of BBC!

April 16, Networking to build business, with Ann Whitmore: Face-to-face conversations at networking events can be powerful to connect with potential customers and clients. But handing over your business card is not enough to get the return on your investment of time and energy. Networking can pay off more powerfully as opportunities to create relationships and support other people first. Come learn how to change your perspective, create a long-term strategy, and have more fun!
