Labor Day is approaching, and after you enjoy your fun in the sun, it’s time for the final sprint to close 2021 out big. Many brick-and-mortar business owners earn most of their sales towards the end of the year, so it’s critical to be prepared. You might be open longer hours than normal, or on more days compared to the rest of the year. Here are a few things to consider as you’re putting together your plan to end 2021 with a bang!
We’re so excited to open our corporate office in The Spa City, Desert Hot Springs. The ribbon-cutting, held June 17 and jointly hosted by the Greater Palm Springs Chamber of Commerce and the Coachella Valley Women’s Business Center, brought out plenty of old and new friends and colleagues to help us celebrate.
Be a Millionaire Day is coming up on May 20. Owning your own business is often a good path to millionaire status. Even those who aren’t millionaires have something to give! At B Team Solutions, the makers of LiftYourTableⓇ folding table risers, it’s important for us to contribute to our community. We are thrilled our new office is right across the street from our local high school (click for a tour!), because we have big plans to work with students who are interested in entrepreneurship!
As you might imagine, we like to celebrate inventors and inventions whenever we can! Not only are we proud to be a member of that community, we’re happy to help others make the community even bigger. Chances are that if you’re experiencing a problem, lots of other people are too. We originally developed our folding table risers for our own use (see the whole story here), but then discovered that plenty of people in a variety of industries had the same issue with folding tables that we did.
At Lift Your TableⓇ folding table risers we’re proud to be a “Mom and Pop” business. March 29 is National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day, which is very dear to our hearts. We also like to encourage everyone to support as many small businesses as you can. It’s especially important during coronavirus. You may find that your local shops and restaurants are offering delivery or curbside pickup, so take advantage!
As a certified minority- and woman-owned (WBENC) business, we at Lift Your TableⓇ folding table risers look not only to the past for business leaders, but also to the present (and future). We enjoy sharing our knowledge and experiences with other entrepreneurs and businesses, because the world is one of abundance. We don’t believe in hoarding, because a rising tide lifts all boats!
There are many Black people to honor in February, and one of our favorites is Madame C.J. Walker. She was a pioneer in consumer products in several different ways.
As business owners ourselves, we love helping others in business whenever we can. You could learn from our mistakes… if we made any… just kidding! If you’re like us, you’ve got some strategic business goals for 2021. We’ve got some tips for making good ones!
We know 2020 was quite the year, and there was a lot of business disruption as all of us learned how to deal with the coronavirus pandemic. Are you (like us) not exactly sad to see 2020 go? Let’s make 2021 a great year for business with these ten tips.
At this time of year we have traditionally stopped to reflect on what we are grateful for. 2020 has been a tough one for sure. If we had only known back in February how this year would unfold...would we even have believed it?
