    The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members, a heart of grace, and a soul generated by love.

    Good morning, Masterminders!

    The audio of today's Inspiration Call is now posted on Inspiration Calls page in the Member-only area.

    Also just posted is a copy of a book marketing plan that I found on the internet, and think is good. You'll find this posted on the Curriculum Materials page in the Marketing Plan Review section (again, this is a Member-only area).

    It is going to be a great week for marketing!

    As of today, January 20, 2011, SoHo Mastermind members will receive one regular email PER WEEK about the Mastermind, rather than the blizzard of email reminders and alerts.

    The emails will come on Fridays, and will include news, announcements, and the upcoming week's schedule.

    Exceptions: If you register for a meeting or special event, you will receive a reminder, and if you subscribe to the forum(s), you will receive messages, but you will no longer be deluged with emails every time we post an audio or add new information.

    I apologize for the inconvenience to those who love the multiple emails, and to those who have complained about there being too many; I do my best to find the balance that is right for all of us, and I believe this is it.

    As always, your comments, suggestions, and questions are welcome!

    A SCORE Workshop for Women in Business

    Managing Your Business: The Owner's Role

    SCORE - Vancouver will offer a forum of women entrepreneurs who will collectively tackle How to Revisit Your Business Plan and conduct a self test of your Business Financial Position.  We'll review issues involving Cash Flow, the importance of Expense Control in a downturn and Income Management.  Sources of Growth, Marketing, Sales and Leadership issues will also be explored.

    Our panel will consist of several Vancouver area women business owners, each presenting their own perspectives from the banking, accounting, retailing and other small business professions.  The forum will serve as an excellent networking opportunity for all attendees.

    Several SCORE counselors will be on hand to meet attendees, assist with the in-class assignments and arrange future free SCORE business counseling sessions.

    WHO IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR?  This SCORE Workshop is designed principally for business owners but will also appeal to women considering starting a new business and want to meet others who have "gone there before."

    WHEN: Saturday, January 22, 2011-  Registration begins at 8:45 am.  The Workshop forum begins at 9:00 am and concludes at noon.

    WHERE: Vancouver Housing Authority Community Room, 2500 Main Street, Vancouver, WA 98660.

    Be sure to check the SCORE Workshop Calendar for other SCORE Workshop postings.

    FEE: $35 per attendee.  Use a major credit card via PayPal's secure site.

    The SoHo Mastermind Presents... Tough Topics Made Easy: 3 keys to difficult conversations.
    with Berry Kruijning, Conflict Resolution Coaching, Training & Mediation

    Wednesday, January 19, 2011, from 12 noon to 1 p.m.
    SoHo Marketing Institute, 953 Officers Row, Vancouver WA
    Get directions:

    How do you tell a client that their project will take longer and that the bill is twice as high? How do you confront your ex-spouse who is late picking up the kids? How do you apologize in a sincere manner?

    We often try to avoid difficult conversation, out of fear that they’ll turn into a conflict, that we’ll be misunderstood or that the issue won’t be resolved anyway.

    In this interactive seminar you’ll learn the three keys to successfully having these difficult conversations. You’ll feel more confident finally bringing up this sticky issue that is causing you lots of frustration and sleepless nights.

    Sponsored by the SoHo Mastermind, this seminar is free and open to the public.  Preregistration is strongly encouraged due to space limitations; call 360-882-1298 or visit to reserve your seat.

    In this program we will:
    • discover how your subconscious mind works, why it often seems to work against you, and how to put it to better use

    Masterminders, there are just 3 Hot Seats left, so if you want one, please act fast!

    If you don't get a Hot Seat, remember that there are still Presentation Sessions, so you've got options.

    Since I am out of the office for the holidays, the actual schedules will not be updated, but the shopping cart will let you know how many Hot Seats are left.

    Please note that the 1:1 Marketing Reviews with me are completely full, unless we can magically add more time to the day.

    But there is still time to register and get the HUGE VALUE that spending two days with the Mastermind brings.

    Happy Holidays!
