It's That Time of Year! SBCN Christmas Social

It's almost that time of year! The Small Business Community Network (SBCN) has been hosting our Christmas Socials for the past 7 years. We know that the small biz owner might not have a work Christmas Party to attend, so we created one for you.

Members and Guests Welcome, so check out the details and register so you too can enjoy the SBCN's now famous QUIZ!

SBCN Small Biz Clinic Celebrating Small Biz Month

Are You Getting Noticed?

LindaOJ here, co-founder of the SBCN and the one and only, Social Sweetheart. I am often asked how it is that so many people remember me, so I thought I would share a few of my thouoghts with you today, because when I started my first business Motivational Steps, no one noticed me at all, let alone knew who I was.

Getting noticed is the first step, the second step is about being memorable. People remembering who you are, which they won't if you don't get noticed.

Four New Members Joined the Small Business Community Network in Septmber

LindaOJ here, co-founder of the SBCN. I am so happy to share that we are still growing our membership, and in the past 3 weeks of September we have had four new members join our oganization.

Growth is awesome, and in the case of the SBCN we have enjoyed a steady growth in the past eleven years, which is much better than a rapid visit to the top and then an even faster journey back to the bottom!
