It's the Last 2 Months of 2019

Can you believe we are already into November? We have two more months of 2019 before we ring in a new year. What are your plans over the next two months to make sure you are making the most out of this year?

UNG will be hosting and will be attending lots of events and educational sessions over the next month. Our plan is to meet with more businesses, network, grow and learn from everyone. Learning is a big part of finishing up our 2019 year so that we can make 2020 an even better year than the one before. In the newsletter below I have listed in detail all the events we will be participating in and hosting. Please try to join us for one or all of the events to finish off your 2019 learning and networking with more businesses in your area.

Do you have a lot planned for the last two months of the year? I would love to hear, please send me a note to let me know!

We create business videos that convert more leads into sales and help you become an expert in your local market. Attract & engage more customers with video marketing.
Are you ready to make business videos that convert?
Video Production and Video Marketing have been a natural progression in my career in media.
Starting in Print over 20 years ago, to interactive design and all things digital, I bring a unique marketing perspective to all of my video projects. It's not just about making it pretty, but will it work, will it sell, will it give you a healthy ROI.
That's what it's all about!
I like to tell prospects and clients that video is not an expense but rather an investment in your business. And these days, you really can't move forward without including video in your marketing plan.

Join us at DIID event The INSANE Life of Entrepreneurship
Friday November 22nd 8:30am to 12:30pm.
Attend in person at the Uxbridge Public Library,
or remotely through ZOOM.

You love working for yourself but sometimes your life as an entrepreneur is insane!
How do you continue juggling family, finances, and the never-ending workload? Do you find yourself sandwiched in the midst of it all and not moving forward on any front?
STOP before you burn out and take a moment to hear the voice of other entrepreneurs who are also living it or have found their way to sanity. How are they handling the challenge? Will any of their tactics work for you?
In this workshop you will re-discover why you love being an entrepreneur and explore ways that may help reduce the insanity. The reality is, it would be so easy to skip this session, but it may hold a message you really need to hear.
Panel presentations and small group discussions will culminate in a presentation of the findings from the wisdom of the group. Both in-person and online participants can take part in supportive small group discussions.

Join us in person at the Uxbridge Public Library. If you are really busy, link in through Zoom (the link will be sent to you once you register online). The morning promises networking opportunities and refreshments (sorry, Zoom participants need to make their own coffee).
