What we learned from each other and about each other last week in just 60 minutes:

  • What we want to keep, change or discard as we reinvent our businesses. The ideas were surprising and personal.
  • Show and Tell: Yuliya Semak, SIMARGL LLC (Poland and Austin) on her new software for forms driven businesses; Sam Alexander on his new digital platform. Unfortunately, lots of scams, cyber-attacks, and gotchas to watch. You need to know about these. New numbers on hourly workers by state and national from When I Work.
  • What’s happening in business across the country from all our Business Buddies who attended
  • What 24-7 access to support really costs you from Shane Anciso, Secret Simple Computer Repair (Austin)
  • The value of time with Joe Sprangel, Emmanuel Strategic Sustainability (Virginia) and comments from forum attendees on how this applies to their business and how they track it.
  • Share the Wisdom: 4 great ideas on how to leverage the $175 billion in discretionary spending plus government agency money spent to support their special needs plus new money from leveraging the combination of a disabled and "temporarily" abled business from this week's guest expert, Janet Steveley, Workable Solutions and Sr. Consultant for Griffin-Hammis.
  • The Last Word from Jan Triplett, BSC (Austin and the world) on the FTC's actions against misleading claims from businesses offering small business financing. You need to check these companies out and the FTC's recommendations to prevent losing your money and time.

We are finding great “business buddies” willing to talk openly and frankly about their business and share their expertise at the Reinventing Business Forum. It is so great to get to know and understand each other more than just to talk superficially like in a traditional in person or online meeting. The added benefit is that we get information from others in many industries and all over the country and overseas.

Please join us — we really want you! Learn from us and show and teach us what you know.
