September Member Call-In Posted

We had a wonderful meeting on “Final Friday” yesterday. The recording is Here.

We had a very good size crowd. Lots of questions. Lots of interaction.

Once again, we mentioned that all paid members of the SBT Community are eligible to receive FIVE hours of free marketing virtual assistant support each year.
This can be used to set up social media accounts, help with mailing lists, etc.

Thank you to everyone who participated – Including Amy on her boat. Great questions. Great conversation. Lots of good advice.

Check it out – and join us next month!

Members Only: 24/7 Zoom Room just for you!

We all love Zoom, right?

Well now we are taking our Zoom engagement to a new level.

Effective immediately, we are making our Zoom Room available to all SBT Community Members 24 hours a days, seven days a week!

24×7

Why and What? Here’s what we’re up to:

Members Click Here to Access the Link.

Whenever you want to chat with someone in the community, you simply go to that link. Your video and microphone will be OFF by default, but you can always turn them on. Recording of the session is also OFF by default.

If you’re ever just hanging out and wondering if anyone else is hanging out, we encourage you to log and engage.

Note: This is the same Zoom room we use for classes and Community meetings. So if you’re hanging out and we crank up a class or meeting, we will (politely) let you know that we “need the room” for an hour or so.

We are VERY open to ideas you have about how we can use the Zoom Room. Just email us – karlp@smallbizthoughts.com or concierge@smallbizthoughts.com.

Relax Focus Succeed Intro – Week One Posted

The September Mini Course is A Practical Introduction to Relax Focus Succeed. Week One is now posted.

RFS is a guide to balancing your personal and professional lives and being more successful in both. It lays out my philosophy of finding success without driving myself 80 hours a week, being constantly stressed out, or having a heart attack.

In modern small businesses – especially in technology – there’s a sense that we have to be 100% on all the time and never rest. And that leads to all kinds of personal problems, as well as reduced job performance. We KNOW we have to stop this insane behavior but we tell ourselves we can’t.

August Member Meeting Posted

Today’s Member call-in was awesome!

Huge thanks to everyone who participated. Lots of new faces, too. I appreciate you jumping in, asking questions, and contributing.

Special thanks to Amy for joining us from her boat! Life is good.

Good tips on reading my books on Kindle, backing up your cloud services, and convincing clients that they need to backup their cloud services (hard to believe this is a question, but it is).

Also a bit of unpaid promotion for The ASCII Group.

All in all a good call.
