    Building Referral Networks 

    You know your business doesn’t exist in a vacuum.

    You have an inflow and outflow of engagements with the community, and managing them can be a key factor in your effectiveness as a business owner.

    In this session, Gwen Pokalo from CWE will explore ways you might work with the key partners surrounding your business so that you can operate more efficiently, effectively, and enjoyably.

    We’ll take a look at:

    • best practices for building partnerships with complementary businesses to increase your own business,
    • how to build a reputation as a good referral source,
    • and how to create networks upon which you can rely as you grow your business.

    Gwen Pokalo is the Director of the Center for Women & Enterprise Vermont which provides statewide individual business counseling, trainings, and certification to help entrepreneurs start, grow, and expand their businesses. She got started as an entrepreneur when she developed one of the first student-run retail incubators in the country featuring products from emerging Vermont entrepreneurs. She owned an artist representation and business consulting firm and has worked in rural development research and held positions directing women’s business development organizations. She teaches small business, finance, and accounting at the college level. She holds a Master’s in Applied Economics and Community Development from the University of Vermont and serves on the boards of LaunchVT, the Vermont Community Loan Fund, and the Women’s Business Owners Network (WBON).

    Good Bookkeeping. Good Business Decisions

    Bookkeeping is so much more than recording your income and expenses. Your numbers tell a story that empowers you to make adjustments and decisions that will help your business thrive. No matter where you are in the process, there are options to improve the flow of your financial data to make your business more agile so you can make good decisions and be prepared to take advantage of opportunities as they arise.

    We’re almost halfway through the year, and if you’re like many small business owners, you are so busy running your business that bookkeeping is one of the last things on your mind.

    In this session, Eve Dubois of Numberworks will help you understand what your financial statements can tell you and how you can leverage technology to help you make improvements this year that will ease your way over the next few months and make 2019 year-end a breeze.

    Eve Dubois earned her degree in Business Administration from the University of Vermont after gaining practical experience in her family’s businesses. She has over 20 years of experience providing bookkeeping and accounting services, putting the numbers to work for her clients in a way that's calm, pain-free, and non-threatening. Dealing with numbers and finances can be a pain, especially if that's not where your talents are. Eve and her staff take away your pain by leveraging technology and doing the work that's easy for us so you can get good, solid numbers that help you make the most of your business's financial information.
