Join us this BBC Friday for a very special guest presentation by Kirsten Scheffler, manager of Premium Wine & Liquor, the new identity for Bainbridge Island’s long-established Liquor Store.
There will be a time for questions after Kirsten gives her talk. “The island’s former state-run liquor store — now operating under the name Premium Wine and Liquor — is still fully operational on Hildebrand Lane. ‘Our sales have been pretty good so far. Honestly, we have great customers who continue to come to our store location’, said store manager Kirsten Scheffler. ‘We’ve had a lot of comparison shopping, which we welcome, because this is a confusing time for customers’, she said. Scheffler is not exaggerating.” (By Richard D. Oxley, Bainbridge Island Review Staff Writer, June 8, 2012 · 12:23 PM · bainbridgereview.com/business/158191775.html).
Liquor store number: 206-842-5221. Kirsten Scheffler contact info: 206.790.9533 / [email protected]

In 2008, for the first time in history, more books were self-published than those published traditionally. With self-publishing (also called “alternative” or “independent” publishing), the author is responsible for the entire process, including design (cover/interior), formats, price, distribution, marketing and PR. Authors can do it all themselves or outsource all or part of the process. In this workshop, we explore why small businesses would want to use independent-publishing services and navigate some of the choices and issues.
14 June 7:30-8:30 pm @ Eagle Harbor Books – “How They Started,” book signing with author Carol Tice (caroltice.com) – How do you turn a good idea into a great business? Lots of us have ideas we think would make great businesses. Most of us never do anything with those ideas. Maybe it’s because we’re really happy with our jobs, maybe it’s because we’re not confident that our idea would really work. Or maybe it’s simply because we don’t know where to start. How They Started: How 30 Good Ideas Became Great Companies (howtheystarted.com) is about 30 people who had an idea, and went on to start a business. Those businesses are all extremely successful and most are now household names all across America. Eagle Harbor Books: eagleharborbooks.com/event/how-they-started-carol-tice
