The group discussed two different books about Motivation. The first book was brought up by Tracy and it’s called “Get Motivated” by Tamara Lowe. Tracy also mentioned that there is a test that everyone would benefit from taking online http://www.getmotivatedbook.com. The other book that was discussed was brought up by Ashlee and it’s called “Drive” by Daniel Pink.
The group also discussed the pros and cons about social media. The importance about being careful about sharing too much information but also how helpful social media can be in marketing your business.
We also discussed if it’s better to hire a part-time marketing person or if it’s better to outsource. The groups conclusion was that the first thing to do is to sit down and write down a job description so you know exactly what it is that you need help with and go from there.
We took photographs with the banner outside of the restaurant.
All meetings will be scheduled by Kristine each month and they will start at 6pm, social gathering starts at 5:30pm.
