This BBC Friday we will do a “Your Board Of Directors” business strategy roundtable.
Classic BBC! Here is where you can bring a business problem, personal problem (no therapeutic guarantees), tweak-my-branding conundrums.
Maybe you haven’t had a problem lately, but you have a great problem-solving story to share — a solution that worked, a lesson learned, a snippet of business wisdom!
Be prepared to think serendipitously and strategize strategically on yours and your Fellow BBCites businesses. Be there, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, as serial entrepreneurs, we’re all businesswise!
So, invite your friends and associates to join us for this exciting non-virtual non-cloud event in real time and real space … and another delicious cup of BBC!

BBC Regulars Exciting Upcoming Events!
November OfficeXpats Tuesday @ Noon Workshops – “Hiring, Partnering, Sub-Contracting”: Paula Willams, Sound HR Services (soundhrservices.com), & Rebecca Villareal, Northwest Business Training Center (nwbtc.com), will be presenting at these 3 November workshops on “keeping your clients happy when schedules spike to overload.” Recruiting, recognizing and keeping quality employees, partners, and associates is not something that just happens on the fly. It takes planning and foresight. As entrepreneurs and professional service providers, we wear many hats, juggling client demand, marketing, deadlines, health, family life, balance, and much more. Some days the demands spike off the chart; clients have impending delivery dates, but invoicing needs immediate attention, the phone is ringing off the hook, emails are piling up, and maybe, on top of all of this, kids are home, sick with the flu. Stephen Covey wrote that the first two success habits of highly effective people are 1) being proactive, and 2) beginning with the end in mind. Without a doubt, being able to pull together quality human resources when your schedule hits overload is one of those success keys that savvy business folks know they need to continuously cultivate and maintain. With this three-week series, we’ll learn about best practices for hiring, firing, partnering, and sub-contracting. Be prepared for success by planning ahead, safeguard your advantage by having your best people power available when your schedule needs it the most.
