BBC Friday 8 June 2018 – “Business Continuity & Personal Well-being” w/ Mary Coupland

Join us this sunny spring BBC Friday for another business continuity discussion, this time focused on aging, quality of life, and the new local resource “Compass & Clock,” with long-time BBC Regular Mary Coupland, owner and publisher.

Baby Boomers are turning 65 at a rate of 10,000 per day, and our aging parents are looking to us, their adult kids, for guidance. Welcome to Compass & Clock. We are a group of compassionate, experienced professionals dedicated to the well-being and safety of others. Our goal is to share knowledge, resources, and tools to educate, empower, and help you strengthen your quality of life as you age.” (

Our multimedia program is not focused on end of life, but on the journey and joy of life.  “Don’t wait till you’re overwhelmed by illness or uncertainty. Hold on to that independence you seized as a young adult by taking advantage of the services Compass & Clock has to offer, from complex legal guidance, to recommendations for remaining healthy and active or enjoying a night on the town. Welcome to a community conceived to help guide you into your best future.” Mary on LinkedIn:

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!

Be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, me hearties, as serial entrepreneurials, we all be business wise!
