the August 2011 edition of our newsletter!
As many of you know, I started this business to bring personal computer
training to people of all ages. In the course of my research, I
discovered that many of the people who may be interested in our
services are age 40 and older. In particular, such people living
independently (as in senior apartment complexes and active-adult
communities) seemed very receptive. As a result, over a year ago, I
joined the Richmond Senior Network (more on this very valuable group
I hope you
enjoy this newsletter - please feel free to contact me with any
comments and suggestions (I did take a suggestion from a subscriber and
increased the font size!)
On July 12, I
attended the most recent meeting of the Richmond Senior
Network. As they state on their Home
Page, the RSN is "a
non-profit organization comprised of professionals serving the seniors
industry of Richmond, VA. Meetings are held bi-monthly to give members
and guests the opportunity to network with each other & propel
collaboration in the Richmond seniors industry.". RSN meetings are usually very well
attended. Members consist of people who work for companies and
agencies, or own businesses, that serve a wide variety of
senior-oriented interests. Membership is very inexpensive - only $25
per year - it's hard to eat out at a reasonably decent restaurant for
One very nice feature of being an RSN member is that you can list your
information in the RSN directory. This includes company name, address,
phone numbers, email address, website, and a short description. This
gives you an idea of what others are doing in the industry. Members can
also update their directory entries online, which is really good
because in this world, information is constantly changing!
Therefore, if you are involved with seniors, I urge you to take a look
at the RSN. Please contact me if you have questions.
On July 21,
I attended the Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce's
Breakfast With the Pros. The speaker was Kelly Meerbott
- she gave a great talk on email marketing.
On May 6, I attended the Chick-Fil-A Leadercast,
a simulcast of a presentation from Atlanta by several prominent
individuals, some in business, some not. The purpose of the
presentation was to inspire the attendees to be better leaders (and to
feed us, generously provided by - surprise - Chick-Fil-A !) Most of the
speakers were very good.
Thanks as usual to Richmond GATE for your support!
