This week has begun with seventy degree weather and by “Networking with Bernie” at the Logan Square Library. Realtor Bernie Small has been hosting this group for about six year. Today’s presenter was language instructor Tony Marsh who demonstrated his method of helping people quickly become conversational in virtually any language.
John Jones, CPA who with Bernie and I are participating in a 100 day challenge to make 100 new business contacts reported that though it is day 83 he has made the goal of 100. Congratulations to John. I am at 91 toward the achievement of my goal with 17 days left. Bernie announced that he felt the challenge has contributed significantly to what appears to multiple offers on a condo he has for sale, as well as the identification and acquisition of an important investor for one of his other real estate projects. So the journey continues.

David Henly of Proctor Digital. Small business SEO and digital visibility specialist.
