We are thankful for a great group of tippers at LeTip Chester County East (CCE) which hosts its weekly meeting every Tuesday. At our last meeting on Tuesday, November 24, 2009, we had the pleasure of 1 guest:  Mark Fedor of Fedor Fabrications who has been in business renovating kitchens and bathrooms since 1982.

SPEAKERS: Our speakers were:  Nivé Dhanak, along with her business partner Jack Blanton, of JBND Tax Books, Inc.; and Greg Cazillo Website designer.

1st Speakers:  Jack and Nivé provided us with an overview of JBND Tax Books and the services they offer to small businesses in tax preparation, bookkeeping and accounting. JBND Tax Books’ goal is to simplify their clients’ needs and, toward that end, offer a monthly “Fixed Fee” service. Clients who subscribe to this service can contact JBND all month-long with questions/comments, for one set fee! JBND is proactive with clients and reviews tax projections in advance of IRS deadlines for the year ahead, so that corrective actions can occur before the current year ends. A good lead for JBND is any small business with revenues of $50,000 to $500,000 and up.

2nd Speaker:  Greg of DX Creative showed us a variety of Websites he recently designed. Greg can design a Website from scratch or he can enhance an existing Website, such as adding an e-commerce component or implementing a Content Management System (CMS) or developing a customized form. Also, Greg can handle the hosting of Websites and can create a Search Engine Optimization (SEO) program to fit just about any budget. He also mentioned it’s important for Websites to contain a “call to action,” for e.g., “Contact us for a free 1-hour consultation.” A good lead for Greg is  any small business in need of a new Website or would like to improve their existing Website.

TIPS: At this week’s meeting we circulated 15 tips total! (9 inside and 6 outside tips). Go Tippers!

DOLLARS IN OUR POCKETS: Please provide Scott Darling your “dollars in your pocket” for the month of November by Tuesday.

BUSINESS MIXER: Our next Quarterly Business Mixer will be held on December 8th at Halligan's Hearth and Home in Malvern. We need contributions for our prize drawings. Can you help?!
