Identifying Your Business’ ‘Main Thing’

“The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.”  Stephen R. Covey

What is your ‘main thing’ in business? Is your main thing to make money, to be successful in business, to meet as many prospective clients as you can? The Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce’s main thing is to promote the civic, economic, industrial, professional and cultural welfare of the Crescenta Valley. We help small businesses in the Crescenta Valley by planning networking mixers and organizing events where businesses can have a chance to promote themselves. We distribute publications and articles that encourage citizens of the Crescenta Valley to shop locally and help support local businesses. The chamber can help you with your “main thing.”

On Entrepreneur.com, Dr. Ivan Misner, a New York Times best-selling author says, “Networking your business means you have to be proactive. The core of networking is doing something specific each week that is focused on networking for business growth. Make a plan, focus and be consistent. When you understand exactly what business networking is and step up to the challenge, you’ll find avenues of opportunity that you may have otherwise never discovered, and you will be making an invaluable investment in the steady growth of your business.”

Make a plan to make this month your “main” month to focus on your “main” thing. If your main thing is business growth and networking, the Crescenta Valley Chamber has you covered. Stop by and see what we can do for you.

This weekend from 9 a.m. on May 12 to 9 a.m. on May 13, the Foothills Relay for Life, benefiting the American Cancer Society, is being held at Clark Magnet High School. Relay For Life contributes to the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving mission by fighting back against a disease that has already taken too much.   Supporting Relay will help the American Cancer Society fund groundbreaking cancer research, provide up-to-date cancer information, advocate for all people to have access to screening and treatment, and offer free programs and services to improve the quality of life for people facing cancer. Cancer took the life of my mother this past year, so all events and awareness of this ugly disease is a blessing in my eyes. As Mother’s Day also approaches this Sunday, I wish my mom in heaven a most beautiful day and to all the wonderful moms, I wish you a peaceful, beautiful day filled with love and laughter.

Important dates: May 12 & 13 – Foothills Relay For Life; June 13 – Business mixer at Caspian Services.

Please call our office for more details on any event. How to reach us: (818) 248-4957/crescentachamber@aol.com/ www.LaCrescenta.org /3131 Foothill Blvd.,  Ste. D.
