Looking ahead to those April showers and May flowers, one year into pandemic

March of 2020 began over 365 days ago, and some of us feel like it never really ended. As we move into a new calendar month, though, it's a good time to try to shake off that perpetual-winter feeling and look forward to what April has to offer.

Harriet Cohen of Training Solutions to give work-from-home tips at March 18 meeting

Some small business owners, freelancers, and entrepreneurs are old pros at working from home, but the rest of us had to quickly adjust to this new normal last year. We cooked up marketing plans at the kitchen table or strew spreadsheets on the bedsheets, doing our best to keep business humming while dealing with our kids and our partners also being home all day long. Maybe it got better and you now run a productive home office and a happy household. Or maybe that chaos of last March became routine.

"Ignore the Gig Economy at your own peril," says March 4 speaker Jeff Boxer

If you've ever debated hiring employees or delegating to independent contractors, Thursday's speaker should clear things up.

Los Angeles attorney Jeff Boxer will give a presentation on the Gig Economy at our March 4 Synergy Business Connections meeting, which will take place at 10:00 PST on Zoom. Jeff practices in labor and employment law, and he has seen what can happen when employers and employees don't understand how the gig economy works.

Kurt French of Thousand Oaks Plumbing to sponsor March 4 meeting

Synergy membership was a no-brainer of Kurt French. As the man in charge of business development, marketing, and customer service at Thousand Oaks Plumbing, joining a networking group was top priority. “Thousand Oaks Plumbing was simply too good to be too quiet as they’ve been,” says Kurt.

Some messages from our group...

What makes Synergy Business Connections a special group?

Have you ever heard of a Troika? If not, you should come to a meeting. It really makes the Synergy Business Connections group so special. Not only do we collaborate as a big group during bi-weekly group meetings, we also get to get to know the individuals in our group through bi-weekly Troikas. Relationships are so important, and our Troikas help us to build our personal connections with people. You can’t do that in a massive group breakfast or in a huge happy hour mixer. We get to learn and teach each other, and by doing so, we make each other that much more successful.
