Listen: Lucas County, Heather Downs, People Mucus County discussed on The Money Coach Ronda Cobb
"Well I am great and I'm happy to be here to talk to people about <music> out the amazing things we can do. Oh thanks for having us. Having a great day excited to be with you. Thank you you know a couple of months ago. We had that special group meaning Linda they that you gave us such a great presentation kind of how to do this and I was just bowled over but the number of resources that are available to library card holders for free and I have since use those resources I went to the break got my little card and I practiced what you taught us that it worked great. I was like okay that is good as Linda made it work. Yes tell people about the kinds of things that the economic success team brings them well. Since you mentioned looking for prospects listen things that I download at that was one of our branches which was at Waterville and have librarian will travel. I can be anywhere to help people look at these things <hes> we used to of our databases we use reference U._S._A.. And merging intellect and what we did is both of those work on a system of you identify what you're looking for so if you're looking for all the businesses in Lucas County that <hes> well. Let's say you WanNa look at all the pizza shops because you have a new software that will make their <hes> drivers happy okay we could identify list of all the pizza shops in Lucas County but then you might say well we only want to go to ones onset have ten or more employees we could do that too and then what's great is once you get your list. You can download it to excel you can call them. You can send him a postcard. <hes> you can <hes> show up on their doorstep if you want but that's all available free with your library card and then we have merchant intellect which operates very similar and you also get to it from the library and that one has a lot of research in it but the thing people are really excited. Ended about is you could build a list of say you're selling <hes> you were selling dog license or something for dogs. You could go into this database and say I want to make a list of all the People Mucus County that have a dog that are the man that have an S._U._v. and we could you could create a list and you're mailing about your new product that will keep their S._U._V. Clean when the dogs in it so those are just two of the databases that I'm always promoting and <hes> I'm always available to give people either a lesson on the phone or if they wanna come in and see me I can sit down with them and show them how to use these to make their business grow and that is so important because yeah you're not utilizing all of your resources than your business might not be growing as well as fast as you want it to now when they when they decide they wanna come and see you <hes> antiquing maybe they should call ahead to make an appointment so they know which bathroom GonNa be at absolutely and you know what we work with all variety of people so I did work with a gentleman recently who <hes> his transportation mode was either the <hes> the bus or a bicycle and he didn't WanNa make to bus transfers to get here so I met him at a branch that was closer that was just one bus ride so we're available to do that that and what's really exciting. We will be back downtown at main in the end of September <hes> with our new offices in new resources for businesses but right now we're we're hubbing out of heather downs and <hes> <hes> some of the other things that along with our databases for example tonight at seven o'clock. I have intellectual property attorneys that will be coming here to heather downs at no charge they don't charge us anything either but they'll meet with with people who WanNa talk about <hes> patent and trademark issues I mean maybe they think they have a pen and we have somebody that comes once a month the first Thursday of the month to talk with prospective entrepreneurs about their intellectual the actual property so that's another service that we have here I will let's just awesome so how do people that that might went to you know provide entrepreneurs perspective onto entrepreneurs. How do they hook up with you guys to be a member of the team is passable? Super Easy Lenders said we're out of the other branch library at this time we're willing to come to where they would prefer to one."
