It’s the 300th episode of The Small Business Show! We start this special episode with a conversation about some of the most important lessons we have learned over the past 6-years of recordings and guests. Then it’s on to a great interview! Want people to remember your name? Feed them.  Our guest today has built a business around making a great impression on your current and potential customers with branded boxes of goodness that will put a smile on everyone’s face. Chelsea Martin is the Co-Owner of Noms Bake Shop where they specialize in connecting you with your customers on an entirely different level than standard marketing techniques. Since we all love cookies, I’m especially interested in learning about how they have created a business around something so important to all of us. Join your hosts Shannon Jean and Dave Hamilton as we learn why Noms isn’t really a cookie company after all. 00:00:00 Small Business Show #300 for Wednesday, October 28, 2020 300 Episodes of SBS Takeaways from 300 Episodes 00:01:50 Support Is Available  SCORE 00:03:17 That which is monitored is managed 00:04:16 Avoiding fear-based decisions 00:05:10 The opportunity of telling your story 00:06:51 The idea of action 00:08:44 Learn how to give great customer service 00:10:03 Reminding myself that I’m good at this! 00:11:30 The value of resilience and grit 00:13:55 There’s less risk than you think 00:16:47 Turn off your TV! 00:17:56 What do you want to know? feedback@businessshow.co 00:18:14 SPONSOR: BuildHR.

It often takes a relocation to realize just how great your “little” local music store is. Paul and Dave talk through some of this as it relates to gear, community, and more. Meanwhile, Dave’s finding himself in the woodshed this week, having bitten off a little more than he realized he needed to chew! And then listener Steve has an issue with his band that is routinely encountering what we’ll call “remedial rehearsal”. This can be the death of a band but, then again, so can over-analyzing things.

Today we get to focus on one of my least favorite, yet arguably most important topics for Small Business owners. Managing your accounting and cash flow is critically important to make your business successful and to keep it healthy. The reason accounting isn’t my favorite topic is that I am just not very good at it. I have focused most of my business efforts on the top line of sales and growth – not always the best technique. Today I am looking forward to learning more about how choosing the right CPA and advisor can help achieve better results and help business owners take their companies to the next level. To help educate us today we are joined by Courtney DeRonde, a Managing Partner from TDT CPA’s and Advisors. 00:00:00 Small Business Show #299 for Wednesday, October 21, 2020 00:01:07 SPONSOR: Linode.
