                             what an INCREDIBLE training we had.  Our guest that morning was Lisa
                             Cole of Cole Communications, LLC and our short topic was "Social PR: The
       Free Way To Get Your Business In The News."
        
       We had such a great response from the ten minute training segment that we've created an
       entire class to fill in the blanks.  Lisa Cole will again be our speaker and will help you create
       your first social media news release from start to finish. 
        
       The Web 2.0 information highway provides free and easy access to new forms of publicity for
       businesses of all sizes and shapes.  This new workshop will explore free tools to get your
       message and story in the media via the social media news release, which takes the
       traditional press release to another level.  Either bring your laptop or we'll provide one for
       you for this workshop.  You'll take away your new knowledge, your new media release, plus
       valuable reference materials to keep learning and growing.  Click here to register!

       Survey and CBP's New Intern 
        
        
       If you received services from the SBDC office in 2009 you should have received an email
       survey from us. If you didn't receive one email me and I'll make sure you receive it. The
       survey is an annual requirement of the U.S. Small Business Administration and the feedback
       helps us improve our counseling and training. The information is kept strictly confidential
       and reported in aggregate. Complete the online survey and we'll give you a chance to win
       $25 off any future training offered in our offices by the SBDC!
        
       We are also excited to introduce a new intern, Erika Garnika. She is a senior at Marymount
       University and is doing some economic research for us to complete an internship and her
       degree. You may be getting phone call from her in the next couple of weeks asking questions
       about the successes of your business. We're seeking to gather more in-depth information on
       how we have helped you, which will help us when we talk to our financial supporters. If you
       are able to take the time to answer her phone survey you'll be helping us to continue to fund
       and expand our services to entrepreneurs like you. Please see her note below.

                      Erika Garnica is a new intern at CBP for the spring and excited to be joining
                      the wonderful staff at the Community Business Partnership. CBP's mission, of
                      helping people start and grow small businesses, is what initially attracted her
                      to working for CBP. Erika is currently a senior at Marymount University with a
                      major in Economics and minor in English. She will be using the skills gained
                      through her education during her internship at CBP.

                      At CBP one of her projects will be to conduct a survey of past clients. Through
       this survey CBP will be able to examine the economic impact they had in the long term. This
       information will be used as part of our Economic Impact Research study and will be
       gathered to help CBP analyze and examine the difference between clients who received
       more counseling versus the clients with whom we had shorter term relationships.  It will also
       be helpful in determining if CBP had an impact on job and wealth creation.

                                           Introductions are a small business owner's lifeblood.   If
                                           you get the chance to speak to a potential funder at a
                                           networking event, use the opportunity wisely.
                                           Provide him or her with interesting, positive and
                                           abbreviated information about yourself and what you do,
                                           and if they like you they will probably ask for more
                                           information and want to like your product.  
                                            
                                           What your contact doesn't want is too much detail, too
                                           much history or too much information about your
                                           problems. Pleasant conversation and positive thoughts
                                           leave a good impression.  Good impressions will help to
                                           sell your products and services and, with luck, your
                                           potential loan package.

                                           Be upbeat, leave personal problems at home and be a
                                           good and attentive listener when questions are asked. 
                                           Offer short but detailed answers and you will keep them
       interested.

       Make your connections about other people not about you. Remember the guy who tried to
       sell you an insurance policy at the Christmas party?   It's not that you don't like insurance;
       you just didn't want spend your time at a party talking about it.  Let the prattling belong to
       others and you will have discovered a productive marketing tool. 
        
       By being a good listener, you show interest in others and good business sense.  Allowing
       others to ask questions provides you with an opportunity to speak with moderation.  When
       you do have a chance to chat about your business, personal goals, or your possible future
       funding needs you can make a memorable impression.

       Speak positively and you'll be remembered.  Speak negatively and people start avoiding you.
        
       The Business Finance Center can help you get the best funding for your business. It currently
       has direct micro lending available from $3,500 to $35,000 as well as contacts with business
       banks and commercial financial institutions to help businesses that require larger amounts.

       Green New Year's Resolutions!   
                                            Plant a tree in your yard.
                                            Switch your monthly bills to e-
                                             billing. Even if you print them out at
                                             home, you'll eliminate the postage
                                             carbon footprint and reduce paper
                                             use (no envelopes and annoying
                                             "special offer" inserts).
                                           Switch to an electric kettle for
                                             boiling water.   Electric kettles use
               less energy than their stove-top counterparts, and there are stainless steel options
               available if you're wary about boiling water in plastic.
              If you're replacing appliances in 2010, pay a little more for the most efficient
               Energy Star models -- they'll save you money in the long run.
              Use a rain barrel to get free water for your garden and plants.
              Go vegetarian one day a week.  The livestock industry is a huge greenhouse gas

               or your favorite boutiques.  You may be surprised what you can find.

                                  Don Beery makes business happen.  His focus on finding ways to
                                  generate revenue provides his clients
                                  with opportunities to expand their
                                  business in ways never thought about or
                                  thought possible.  A proven business
                                  development executive in venues that
                                  range from the largest companies in the
                                  world to start-ups that have achieved
                                  extraordinary success, Don consolidates
                                  opportunities, his personal
                                  relationships, his personal knowledge
                                  and skills to efficiently find the quickest
                                  paths to revenue.  As a founding partner at Plus Point Partners, Don
                                  provides advice and hands-on help with the full range of issues that
       must be addressed if a company is going to be successful selling to the U.S. Federal
       government.
        
       During his tenure at EDS Don was a Financial Coordinator of the US Army's ASIMS program,
       managing the finances of over $150MM per year. As Director of Business Development for
       Navy and DOD programs at EDS, Don expanded the EDS footprint at DISA and DLA with a
       $350MM contract, and Navy programs at NAVSUP, BUPERS, NAVSEA, NAVAIR, SPAWAR, the US
       Marine Corps and the Marine Corps Exchange.  The personal relationships Don has built
       throughout these many endeavors remain intact today and are a valuable resource for
       gaining access to information and business opportunities for Plus Point Partners' clients.
        
       At Beyond.com, he established the Government Systems Group.  He created and executed an
       enterprise software sales strategy that provided for software to be sold on an agency-wide
       basis in Defense Mapping Agency (now NGA), Defense Logistics Agency, Department of the
       Treasury, and the Department of Energy that produced annual revenues of $60MM in four
       years.  Don had a leadership role for divestiture of the commercial division of Beyond.com to
       Digital River, Inc. and the Government Systems Group to Softchoice Corporation.
        
       He was instrumental in the development and sales of the enterprise software management
       tool, ATLAS™ that enabled the distribution and management of enterprise wide software
       throughout the federal government to address the challenges of software inventory tracking
       and control.  Don was the General Manager for the Public Sector and Special Advisor to the
       CEO of Real Networks for Government affairs.
        
       For the past seven years Don has operated B2Gov, a consultancy to companies seeking to
       build relationships and doing business with the US Federal government.  Clients have
       included multi-national companies in North America, Europe and the Middle East as well as
       local, emerging companies.
