Call in to speak with the host
While ordinarily interviewing leaders in their industries, this month we showcase business launches. Join us as these new businesses reach for the stars! Gary Oberman is President and CEO of Buildablock. After years of successfully launching start-ups, he started it in 2008 after noticing a snow removal truck clean a single driveway and then leave. Knowing his block had numerous companies servicing the street, the notion of “building a block” of buyers came to life. Unlike Groupon/Living Social, his site does NOT rely on pre-determined deals. It puts the purchasing power in the hands of consumers who then allow retailers to select a discount that allows them to remain profitable. Described as “Group bidding meets deep discounting”, a shopper sees the latest designer handbag, opens the app on their phone, upload a picture, Buildablock ‘builds a block’ of shoppers also interested in that bag, and then negotiates a group discount of 15-75% with the retailer. As a sworn shopaholic, I love it! Find out more @www.buildablock.com. Monica Jones, owner of the boutique brand management firm 3D Studios, created B2B Bash, an elite networking community for businesses and organizations, because she hates networking. Deciding the best way to conquer the fear of speaking with random strangers was to create a networking event that she would enjoy, the B2B Bash was born, where there is something for everyone. There is an open networking format that will allow you to meet as many people as time permits. For those who want a much more targeted approach, there is B2B VIP. The B2B Bash is about more than just exchanging business cards, it's making the connections that matter. Find her: www.b2bbash.com
So tune in, call in, chat in, tweet in, (@grandmasecrets), and as always, be inspired!
It's good to talk.
