BBC Friday 16 January 2015 – Open Mic Friday!

AKG Perception 120 USB condenser microphone with SH 100 shock mountAs we sneak, slide, wander, and meander into these first winter days of 2015, join us at BBC this Friday for free friendly fun adventure, supporting one another’s ideas, thoughts and random on-the-spot creativity.  

Entrepreneurial Serendipity: Have a curious business skill that works as a back-up revenue source in slow times? Something you can teach in five minutes? Bring it! Do it! (Notice a certain vagueness to this post? Hmmm….)

Problems: Facing a knotty problem? Bring it. We’ll put it on the table and see what happens.

There will also be time for round-the-table business story telling: a chance to play with extended elevator speech (2-3 minutes) presentation, to share a little more about your business, your self, your dreams. (Dream interpretation not guaranteed.)

Be there, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, 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!
