- JULY 26: Five Steps to Creating a Productive Mind
Do you feel overwhelmed, behind schedule and stressed out most days? How often have you said or felt that you tend to overestimate what you can do in a single day and are always playing catch up? Do you finish many days†with an incomplete to-do list and leave work feeling dissatisfied, like you didnít do enough? Most of us†overcommit our schedules, bite off more than we can chew and have this overzealous belief that we can somehow manage it all. But in the end, this routine†is basically training us†to miss our potential. Understanding the psychology behind why you are so busy will change how you perceive time.
- AUGUST 23: Customer Retention
Customer retention rate is how well a company keeps its paying customers over a period of time. Peter Drucker once said the purpose of a business is to make and keep a customer. Retention deals with the latter. A low retention rate is similar to filling a bucket with holes in the bottom ó sure, you could keep piling on to make up for it, or you could figure out what caused the holes and how you can patch them up. Retaining customers costs less than acquiring them and both add to your companyís bottom line; revenue doesnít care where it comes from, earned or saved. Through a combination of discussion and You Tube video presentations, we will discuss this compelling topic.
- SEPTEMBER 27: Round Table - Let's Discuss Your Challenges
The Round Table discussion is an opportunity to sit down to discuss your pressing issues, share opinions, strategies, maintenance, or just to brainstorm (throwing forth any business ideas or challenges, no matter what they may be). You will exchange open, honest, and direct ideas with others around the table. The Round Table has no beginning and no end. There is no head of the table (so to speak). In other words, every one's input is considered equal.
No Membership Fees or Dues...
Unlike most other business organizations, ISBOG does not have any membership fees or dues. We recognize that small businesses are usually operating on a limited budget and may not be able to join other organizations that request membership fees. So, rather than your checkbook, all we ask you to bring to meetings are your ideas, your questions, your business sense and your willingness to share your small business experience.
Send us a quick Email and let us know you'll be stopping into a chapter meeting. We'll be glad to meet you.
If you have any questions, please contact Amy Steele by Email. You are welcome to bring your business cards and company literature to share with the group.
