I went to an awesome networking event today. It included an activity called B.A.L.D. (Buy A Local Deal). People sold products or services at a discount at either a $25 or $50 price point. It created awareness and generated sales for a bunch of small local businesses. Thanks to Ellen Huxtable of Advantage Business Concepts for the idea and activity, and Jerry Needham from Pro Energy Consultants for providing the material for the photo! P.S. I donated my $200 in sales to Fox Valley United Way's Souper Bowl raising funds for local Food Banks!
