This Cheery Autumn BBC FRIDAY we have special guest and BBC Regular Terry Arndt telling his latest Business Story and sharing lots of hard-learned wisdom.
Paper Products had been an delightful island institution for more than 40 years. Recently it has moved, morphed, and transitioned into Create Bainbridge, Bainbridge School Supply, and now…?
Why the move, why the change in focus, and what’s next for this island family business. Terry Arndt will discuss these questions and cover the challenges they have presented – as well as the opportunities.
If you have thought about modifying, re-branding, or changing the focus of your business, this is a discussion you won’t want to miss.
A lot of what BBC has been about all these years is sharing stories — successes, “failures” & the wisdom learned through them, ideals & dreams. / So, be here, 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!
