We’ll Get Back to You After the First of the Year…
How many times have you heard this phrase over the past couple of months? Well, there are plenty of things you can do if your business experiences a slow-down during this time of year. While still taking care of current clients, below are a few things I’ve been up to to get ahead of the game once the new year rolls around:
  • Help a buddy start a business
  • Send greeting cards to past, current and prospective clients to say thanks for their business
  • Organize the information my tax accountant will need after the beginning of the year
  • Identify which past/current clients I’ll require a 1099 from and get those in the mail

Non-Profit Spotlight: Culture Inc.
About a month ago, I was introduced to Rachel Rockwell, the Founder of Culture Inc. She’s made it her mission to provide before and after school programming to kids who otherwise wouldn’t have access to this opportunity. Located on the north side of Des Moines, she offers her programs to a community that is traditionally underserved. I’ll be helping Rachel out with some social media coaching and a website redesign (coming soon) in an effort to help Culture Inc. position itself to better raise funds, take donations and establish a Board of Directors. If you’re interested in donating or becoming involved, I’m sure Rachel would LOVE an email from you!

About Stein's Way Suzanne is a Des Moines transplant who has realized the Power of being a Free Agent. Well-versed in many and varied skills, she has a passion for helping organizations and people achieve their potential. Suzanne = wife, traveler, multi-linguist, triathlete and cook.


I initially meet Suzanne through the Unemployed in Des Moines networking group she started. I was instantly inspired by her enthusiasm, initiative and resourcefulness in successfully creating her own consulting business – Contemporary Business Solutions. I recently attended her Social Media Workshop Series which I would highly recommend as a wonderful introductory source to gain instant knowledge in social media. She continues to be a key mentor as I now navigate developing my own consulting business. Her multi-faceted business expertise coupled with her “get it done” attitude proves to be a great resource for both start-up and well established companies.
