About this event

Business is an Art

Join us on September 10, 2019, when Mark Greathouse shares with us his successful journey -- from working in the corporate world, to being a serial entrepreneur and leader in the Angel Investor environment, to authoring novels.

Since 2001, GTG Solutions, under Mark’s leadership, has enabled businesses and company executives to respond optimally to ever-changing market environments. Mark and his firm have consistently proven themselves in the business world, delivering solutions that companies of any size require to achieve and sustain success.

After a couple of decades in the corporate world, primarily as an executive, Mark shifted gears and spent the next 20 years in the angel investor environment, evaluating and helping more than 1,000 businesses find ideal candidates for capitalization.

Today, in addition to operating GTG Solutions, Mark is the author of a soon-to-be released four-book series called the Tumbleweed Sagas. Mark notes the close parallels between writing a book and starting and sustaining a business: It has a beginning, a middle and an end. Ultimately, Mark has found that Business is an Art.

Register today to join us on June 20th to talk with Mark and have your small business questions answered from one of our business community’s great leaders!

Some areas Mark will specifically focus on, which are a must for any business owner:

• First, you always begin a business with an end in mind;

• You must have a vision and mission you believe in;

• Ensure your mission creates value;

• Have a great product or service;

• Have and/or develop an expertise;

• Have a plan that is yours;

• Develop Marketing and Sales;

• Be creative; and

Convey your passion to others.

As a finale to Mark’s Fireside Chat with us, we will be raffling off Volume One of the Tumbleweed Sagas, Nueces Justice, which we know Mark will be delighted to sign for you. You never know, in a few years it may worth enough money that you, too, can become an Angel Investor. Now that alone is worth the ticket price!

The art and design of marketing your business

Next up, we are shining our Small Business Spotlight on Danica and Charles of Danica VC Media. They'll talk about their time spent globetrotting to returning to their hometown to start their own business. We are very excited to learn more about their innovative approach to marketing and branding in the modern marketplace, and to lend them an ear and some advice on scaling their business.

Eats & Drinks

As usual, we’ll start the evening off with light fare provided by local food and beverage establishments.

We look forward to seeing you there!
