BBB Webinar Series: Setting and Attaining
Goals for 2022
BBB Webinar Series: Setting and Attaining Goals for 2022 Date: Wednesday Feb 16, 2022 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. Register HERE Now that we are into the new year, how are you doing with those 2022 goals? One of the reasons we abandon our goals is that we aren’t specific enough. Join Better Business Bureau as we welcome Greg Lindberg from the U.S. Small Business Administration, Buffalo District Office, as he discusses the most effective ways to set and achieve goals this year. This program will connect the dots from setting goals to your unique selling proposition and help you thrive. There will be time for live Q&A at the end of the session and it will be recorded.
Click here to register for this event.A regional Visitors Guide is being published this spring for the Fort Brewerton/Greater Oneida Lake Chamber of Commerce. This guide will include a directory of members along with their business categories. We will also offer advertising opportunities for all businesses in the region as it focuses on our region from a tourism perspective . The guide will have a lifespan of two years and is expected to be published in the Spring 2022. Each member will have the opportunity to have a supply of Guides at their place of business.
The office has provided a current member list to Eagle News as they solicit advertising from the business community. Our representative for advertising is James Robinson. See the attached flyer for advertising costs and contact information. Members will also have the first opportunity to choose prime advertising space in the guide. To be sure you get the best spot (covers, inside and out) you can contact James directly to secure your advertising, although he will be contacting all members. Because this is a regional visitors guide, advertising will also be offered to non-members, although at a higher rate, which will include one year of membership in the chamber.
Members will be listed in both an alphabetical listing and a category listing at no charge. The Guide will offer information of attractions and places of interest in our region as well as government and other local services.
Please make every effort to update your profile on the website so your profile is as accurate as possible for the directory. Please contact the chamber office if you have questions. 315-668-3408 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Here is a link to a video on how to update your profile.
|Profit! Are you doing it right?
With GAAP – Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, the profit formula touts a LIE.
The formula makes logical sense, but it fails in practice. Expenses get priority first, not Profit. Profit is the leftover.
INTRODUCING … The Profit First Formula
By simply flipping the formula – putting profit first, the bottom line is no longer a leftover. Profit becomes a daily habit and something your business will realize in every transaction.
It’s time to draw a line in the sand. Commit to yourself, your family, your colleagues and your business that you will run a financially healthy business. Commit to putting your Profit FIRST!
