    Leadership

    People always want to know what makes a good leader. It’s normally because they’re trying to become a leader, or they’re trying to find a leader to work for their company.


    Some people are naturally good leaders. Other people have the potential to be leaders if they’re willing to develop their leadership skills. But, you need to recognize that leadership is more than standing at the front of a room, having an office or getting people to do things for you.

    Leading isn’t as easy as it looks. Leaders take on more work, more stress and more demands than meet the eye. But, if you have the characteristics of a leader, you are equipped to be successful.

    Join the discussion at the August SBO meeting and learn leadership characteristics.

    Pay for own meal and drinks.
    PLEASE NOTE: Change of location!

    Nicole (DiBuduo) Linder

    Nicole (DiBuduo) Linder is a native of Fresno, California where she resides with her husband, Colby and their two children. A graduate of California State University, Fresno with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Communication and Journalism, Linder assumed the role of Executive Director of the Marjaree Mason Center in September 2016. As Executive Director, Linder oversees more than 90 employees who annually serve more than 5,600 adults and children from Fresno County who have been affected by domestic violence. Marjaree Mason Center is one of the largest domestic violence services agencies in California. This includes 138 beds of safe housing, counseling, legal services, training and education. Prior to her role at Marjaree Mason Center, Linder worked for Valley Children’s Healthcare Foundation and Fresno Pacific University. Linder volunteers her time with Rotary, the schools where her children attend and their family church.  

    Our Non-Profit Support for September


    Tagua: Fair Trade for a Better World is bringing Fresno a whole new way to shop!

    First of all Tagua is a store where you'll find unique and remarkable jewelry, accessories and home and garden decor all hand made by artisans around the world. But while you are finding that perfect accessory for your home or wardrobe, at Tagua you are also using your consumer dollar to make a difference for a marginalized artisan. All the goods sold by Tagua are made by people who are disadvantaged. Many are women who are vulnerable to human trafficking. By buying their creations, Tagua shoppers are assuring these artisans the dignity of providing for their households through the work of their hands.

    Tagua is a non profit volunteer-run mobile store. So at our September luncheon, rather than bringing donations for the featured non-profit, bring your credit card and you'll have a chance to make your own fashion statement and help women around the world by shopping at Tagua's mobile store.

    Invite friends who might be interested and get them to register online.

    All registrations for this luncheon must be made online prior to luncheon.

    Check in and Networking starts at 11.10 am.

    Facebook Video

    The single most important strategy in content marketing today is video. Whether it’s video on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat or Youtube, the content you need to be thinking about creating and marketing on social for your business is video. Period.


    No matter what you’re selling, no matter what your company does, if you don’t have a video marketing strategy for the biggest video platforms, you are going to lose. And in case you haven’t noticed, the platforms of distribution for video content online have shifted drastically over the last 18 months. Facebook is getting more daily minutes watched than YouTube, Snapchat’s daily views are now in the billions, and video on Twitter has taken listening and one to one branding to a whole new level.

    Join the discussion at the September SBO meeting.

    Pay for own meal and drinks.

    Non-members are welcome to attend one time!
