A can't miss event? Make it virtual

By Laura Haight

2012 was a great year for us. We worked with some great people and learned a lot. Our virtual event offerings expanded significantly: We did 75 events with University Business/District Administration- two national education magazines.

Here in Greenville, we helped the Small Business Development Center convert its Jumpstart program into an on-demand presentation; and worked with Becky McCrary to produce an on-demand series from her Unimaginable Service program.

If you've missed any of these programs this year, you don't have to.

Find out more about the SBDC's Jumpstart your Business program here. You can register online, fire up your computer, put on your slippers and get educated about what you need to start a new business. You'll find out about the qualities a successful entrepreneur should have as well as some good basic information (including downloadable templates) on how to put together a business plan and how to understand your financials.

If you're already in business, chances are you are grappling with an issue all of us deal with: how to provide outstanding customer service. Becky McCrary's three-part program on Unimaginable Service is an incredible store of actionable information delivered in a fun, interesting and accessible way that is the hallmark of Becky's successful speaking and coaching career.

There's a reason why businesses around the country - and beyond - have brought Becky in to speak to their staff, at their conventions and professional training programs. Now her virtual events are available for anyone. Find out more and register here.

So what is your business going to do this year? How will you reach a mobile market and extend your influence?  Like Stravolo Wealth Management, you may want to provide enhanced value to current clients with information they can use to stay on top of news that affects their industry, financial or legal developments. How do you reach them?

As we close the year out, we want to thank all our clients and friends for helping make this year successful and fun! And we are looking forward to meeting and working with more of you in 2013.
