Welcome to 2013! Glad to see you here. This annual milestone is our reminder that although change is a constant reality of life, New Year’s resolutions give us the chance to manage some of our alterations.
Of course, navigating change is of particular concern to business professionals who want to achieve success. Those of us with the Windsor Heights Chamber know this well, so we continue to adapt our programs and add more value for our members. Here are just a few of the new benefits in 2013:
Show and Sell. We’ll be hosting the first Windsor Heights Shop Where You Roost Expo, which will be held at the Windsor Heights Community and Events Center Thursday, Nov. 7 from 5 – 9 p.m. This event will be highly publicized and will provide the chance for residents and neighbors to learn about, sample and buy from member merchants. Booth space is available at no charge to members — but space will be limited, so sign up quickly to reserve yours!
Partner Marketing with other businesses is a powerful method of boosting your business outlook. The trick is finding business professionals who share your interests and needs and who understand how to deploy a plan. This year the Windsor Heights Chamber introduces our program to help. We’ll promote and share our list of businesses that are interested in working with other member businesses. No cold calls necessary to pitch ideas as we’ve already initiated the discussion and also provide ideas along with the up-to-date list.
Sometimes you just need some business therapy — someone to sound off your ideas to, someone who gets what you strive for and who may have ideas to help boost your creativity. The Windsor Heights Chamber will facilitate the formation and meeting of the Master Minds group in 2013. This will be a professional group made up of people who have indicated an interest in meeting once a month with other professionals to help harness the power of the master mind. This is not just networking but also finding your way to success with the support and encouragement of like-minded professionals, who’ve got your back.
The Windsor Heights Chamber Board will be knocking on doors and stopping in to call on all our area businesses. Take a few minutes to speak with them, ask questions and then please sign up to become a member. We are here so that all of us can enjoy a successful 2013 together.
