February 18, 2016: "How to be a Concierge for Your Own Business" to be Presented at March WNET Meeting

Do you know the feeling you get when you enter a fancy hotel with a concierge there to serve you? The successful concierge will, not only address your needs and concerns, but will make you feel significant, honored and greatly valued. In turn, you will want to return to that hotel simply so you can feel that way again. A successful business owner will make you feel the same way.

Ellen Butler Clark, Concierge of Experience Oswego

Ellen Butler Clark, Concierge of Experience Oswego, will outline how you, as a business owner, can be a concierge for your own business at the next Women's Network for Entrepreneurial Training's (WNET) monthly breakfast meeting, Thursday, March 3rd, 8 a.m. at Operation Oswego County, 44 West Bridge Street, Oswego. "Any business," Clark says, "can be improved by adapting the time-tested qualities of a professional concierge to your business." Qualities like integrity, sincerity and passion can be portrayed to your clients, whether you have an actual "brick and mortar" business, handle everything online or somewhere in between. Most importantly, making your clients feel like guests in an upscale hotel, will ultimately create client loyalty for your business.

Ellen Butler Clark, Concierge of Experience Oswego NY, set out over twenty-five years ago to fulfill her dream of running a bed and breakfast as she raised her children. While things did not go quite as planned (Do they ever?), Ellen finally realized that goal. Today, with her kids grown and her stint as innkeeper having come to an end, Ellen has expanded on her original dream and is now a concierge in the city of Oswego.

"Things to do. Places to go. People to see." is the tagline for Experience Oswego, as Ellen believes that there is something for everyone in the city of Oswego. Her latest success has been "Hearts on the Bridge", where Experience Oswego was approved by the common council of the City of Oswego to have ten 5 foot illuminated and animated hearts placed on the Bridge Street bridge in Oswego for the month of February. "Just something to make to people smile," says Ellen.

August 12, 2015: "How to Become Permanently Profitable in Your Business" to be Presented at Septmeber WNET Meeting

Debbie Bilello, Virtual Office Solutions

What if, rather than you serving your business, your business served you? What if you could turn a profit from your very next deposit? And what if you had the power to guarantee that profitability?

Debbie Bilello will discuss Profit First, a cash management system that will ensure any business - of any size, in any industry, no matter how much debt it carries or how many years it has been operating - will become permanently profitable, at the next Women's Network for Entrepreneurial Training's (WNET) monthly breakfast meeting, Thursday, September 3rd, 8 a.m. at Operation Oswego County, 44 West Bridge Street, Oswego. Profit First reveals why the traditional accounting formula of Sales-Expenses = Profit is not just counterintuitive to human behavior, but a myth that locks you into a never ending cycle of selling more yet profiting less. With Profit First you will discover the step-by-step Profit First system that shows you how to radically change the financial health of your business ... from your very next deposit.

Debbie Bilello is the owner of Virtual Office Solutions, a bookkeeping and administrative consulting firm that assists entrepreneurs with their back office management.

As a former office manager and administrator in a variety of businesses, including printing and direct mail marketing, property & casualty insurance, medical office and local government, Debbie has identified the common threads that every business needs, but may lack, to run effectively and efficiently.

Recent conversations with several clients about cash flow revealed an urgent need for assistance in cash flow management. This need prompted Debbie to seek out resources to better serve her clients in this area. Profit First, a book by Mike Michalowicz, addressed that need with simplicity and clarity. Profit First is a system that leverages the habits we already have to realize the greatest profit, without having to mull over confusing financial statements. Debbie quickly became certified as a Profit First Professional to assist entrepreneurs in this very effective method and is ready to assist you.
