    WBO-MC members are eligible to register for WBO-PG events at the member rate! Their October meeting is a panel of Federal, State and Local public policy leaders who will provide applicable tactics as they address how to make the legislative process work for your business, while sharing the benefits of staying engaged and connected in the political process before, during and after the vote.

    The voice and participation of women entrepreneurs and small business owners overall in the legislative arena is vital. We have to discover the balance between focusing on our businesses and making time to focus on the environment created by legislation. Remember, we can make a difference in ensuring that legislation actually supports the immense risk we are taking.

    Did you miss Becky Corbett's brown bag seminar? Here are the main principles for you:

    There are things in your life that can and cannot be changed. You cannot change the fact that you have been given the same amount of time each day. You only have 24 hours in a day to achieve your personal and professional goals. However, you can change how you utilize these hours.

    ProducktivitySM is a unique, interactive personal and professional organizational tool that assists individuals and organizations with improving their decision making and time management skills. Clients participate in a hands-on, flexible, and fun team-building activity utilizing the Guiding Principles: Identify. Connect. Organize.

    Principle #1: Identify: The foundation to make an informed decision is to have all of the puzzle pieces connected to create a complete picture of the situation. There are different ways you can gather information to establish your vision. Use of a variety of methods such as data collection, brainstorming, and research assists you in identifying all of your possibilities.

    Principle #2: Connect: This is a critical principle that tends to be overlooked. You are so eager to get organized and check something off of your ever-growing list that you forget to take a step back to review the bigger picture. What is your vision, and how will your options add value to your organization or your personal life? It is imperative to critically analyze the information you have collected and make the connection between what is needed from both your human and financial resources.

    Principle #3: Organize: Because you took the necessary time to identify your options and connect with your vision, organizing will be easier. Planning and prioritizing your tasks helps you manage your time more efficiently and achieve your personal and professional goals more effectively.

    BSCorbett Consulting, LLC (BSC) supports you and your organization in moving ideas to action by establishing effective and efficient processes and helping develop leaders.

    Argyle Middle School is looking for businesses to be a “client” for a small group of students. This will require one or two people from your organization to be the main point of contact and to work with the students sporadically throughout the school year. There will be a networking/match-making event sometime in November where you will be paired with your student group and then we’ll be doing an expo in late-Spring whether the students will showcase the final products.

    If you would like to participate, please contact Elyssa Jeter at elyssa.jeter@ja.org or 703-426-1561.

    A program at Argyle Middle School, a technology magnet school, called the Capstone program.  Students in grade 8 form groups and utilize Junior Achievement curriculum to create  small businesses.  We pair them up with a business or non-profit who meets with the students to discuss a solution to a problem they would like to be solved through technology, or a technology-related product they would like produced.  The students spend the year in development and deliver it at the end of the school year.

    There is no cost for the companies or non-profit organization and represents only about 6 hours of a person's time over the course of the school year.  If the companies like and use the technology product we create, we pass over ownership over to the company or non-profit organization so they can use it.

    To read all about the program, click  Argyle ASK.docx, and if you have any questions, contact Peter Daddone who is the coordinator of the program.
