Business Bootcamp - Terry Farruk

Greetings WIN LeTippers!

We had a great meeting yesterday with a returning guest, graphic artist extraordinaire, Frank Glaser from Inspot Design.  Frank specializes in Graphic Design, Logos and Identity, and Flash design and if you need photography for your product he does that too.  

We started out with Good News and we had plenty of it:

Jasmine and Lauren our Farmer’s Insurance Agents announced that Lauren wrote her first big auto body shop policy – way to go Lauren.  

Once again Terry Farouk of Way2Execute has been in a “top” list. This time they were in the top 25 list in the San Diego Business Journal.

Carol Lord-Heuschele of C3 Marketing Consulting announced a great opportunity for anyone to tap into the Poway/Rancho Bernardo market.  Chaparral Elementary Educational Foundation is hosting a Mom’s Night Out auction on October 22nd.  Anyone who wants to donate items or services or gift cards just give a shout to Carol.   Already we have a great opportunity of gift cards from Aaron Escobedo of KRAZE boot camps. Thanks Aaron for jumping in with two feet.  (Note: this school has over 900 students imagine the exposure)

Sue Crowder of Union Bank is also calling for donations for the American Heart Association.  Sue will be walking on September 19th in Balboa Park to support this great cause. You can come in and buy a heart for their “heart wall” or donate directly to the American Heart Association. Contact Sue for the link to the website.  Next Thursday Sue will bring hearts and receipts if you want to donate right then.

We then moved on to Terry’s talk on Way2Execute and what they do and how you can properly tip him.  Way2Execute started when Terry and his colleagues saw a need for small businesses to really ramp up their business.  Basically they go to cottage industries and small business owners and really help them grow their business.  Terry stressed that this is not a life coaching seminar where you get ideas and great thoughts but then have to execute or do it yourself. Instead, Way2Execute does actual hands on training and learning with small groups of like minded entrepreneurs.  Everyone is serious and everyone is there to grow their business and increase the bottom line.

Terry’s intense 7-week program is modular and helps people develop the skill sets for running and growing a thriving business.  Again, this is not life coaching, instead you are using real business principles that help people build their business.  This is real time training not lectures.

So, how do you tip a struggling business owner to Terry?  Part of the problem is that a lot of entrepreneurs have a big ego and they are not going to come out and say they are struggling or business is bad.  So don’t say, “How’s your Business?”  Instead say, “Are you looking to build your business?”  Or, “Are you happy with your revenue stream?”  If they say yes to the first and no to the second then send them to Terry.

Cost is $1500 for a 7-week course.  They meet once a week for one hour. Class size is small and you are paired with other like-minded people.  No short cuts – no magic pill, just strong business principles.  After this course sometimes clients keep Terry and company on retainer just to keep them on their toes.

So give a call to Terry and see how he can grow your business.

We had several announcements:

The next Business Connection Mixer will be next Wednesday at Solera in Liberty Station.

Next Thursday directly after the meeting is the BOD meeting.

Sept 9th from 4 to 8pm there will be a Business Mixer in Mission Valley – more info to come….

Quote of the day:

“If we all did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves.”


Thanks and until next week, keep on creating “wealth in networking”!
