    We all have a story about how or why we started our business, it motivated us to get going. We will work on remembering what got us going, motivated us and is it still there, that fire in the belly that pushed us to find success. Do we need to find it again?

     This meeting will be a lot of participation and everyone will find it refreshing and motivating to set new goals for the coming year.

    Pay for own meal and drinks.

    Non-members are welcome to attend one time!

    JD Bennett

    It begins with a promise ...

    The stories of our veterans' service begin with a promise - to support and defend, at whatever cost, our nation and way of life. This Veterans Day we honor all who dared to serve.

     To all our veterans…. we have a simple yet heartfelt message -- thank you – Thank you for your unwavering service in peacetime and war, here in this nation… and throughout the world.

    For all veterans, regardless of their service and the era in which they have served, they have paid the price time and time again….. They have defended America through both the best and worst of times…. and they have performed their duties tirelessly, with little recognition or fanfare.

    They have sought neither fortune nor fame. It was merely a simple love of America and the freedoms we all cherish so much.

    Please invite veteran's you may know to attend our luncheon as we have a discounted registration price for them and their spouses. 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.

    You want a strong start to 2017. Awesome! But if you want to see greater marketing results next year, you'll need to use the remaining time in 2016 to set the stage for January 1st.

    Many times small businesses lack the large teams and capital that big brands possess, which means strategic and creative marketing is essential. To successfully compete requires new approaches to meet ever-changing consumer behaviors, and staying up to date on the latest and most useful tactics and trends.

    This is our last SBO meeting for 2016 so our discussion this month will revolve around preparing for 2017.

    Pay for own meal and drinks.

    Non-members are welcome to attend one time!
