New WWN member Crystal King is our speaker for Thursday, Oct. 19. King, the business development director for NW Technology of Ferndale, will discuss social engineering. Social engineering is the dark art of manipulating people to give up confidential information. Criminals have been using this tactic since the beginning of time, but today with our technological advances they are finding creative ways to exploit our natural human instinct to trust. After all, it’s easier to gain access to a company’s sensitive information by using people than discovering ways to hack into your software. What is the strength of your security online and off?
This week is a closed meeting for our group mastermind session. Members: Don't forget to bring a dish to share for our potluck!
Our Oct. 5 speaker is WWN member Julie Farrow of Farmers Insurance. Julie will explore insurance premiums – how premiums are calculated and why pricing is different from one insurer to another and from one person to another.
Although the holidays are a bit over two months away, Mary Kay consultants are already busy adding new fall and holiday products to their inventories.
You'll be able to see many of these products when Chris Hansen does her "show and tell" presentation on Thursday, Sept. 21, at noon as part of our WWN meeting. She'll be featuring our Special Edition body care sets (the first such products in the Mary Kay line in quite some time). With names like "Chase A Rainbow," "Sail to the Moon" and "Paint the Sky," our new shower gels and body lotions have floral, fruity and/or citrus scents. The matching fragrance mists are yummy, too!
So if you'd like to be "ahead of the game" for holiday shopping – or to find a little something for yourself, be sure to attend this meeting and Chris's tour of the latest products.
Be ready for prize drawing or two as well!
Most small business owners wear all the hats in their business: HR, compliance, hiring, growing the business, taxes and more. Audrey helps business owners learn how to stop working in their business and work on their business instead by growing revenue. She will outline the benefits this can have for a small business of just 10 employees in our local market.
Audrey works with businesses from 1-50 employees, including cross-border clients. Paychex provides a solution from the time of hiring to retiring or the unfortunate firing of employees.
