Small Business Development Center hosts business book discussion Feb. 22

Western Washington University’s Small Business Development Center will co-host the “Hot100BizBook Club” from 10 noon on Wednesday, Feb. 22 in the Fireside Room of the Bellingham Public Library Fairhaven Branch.

This event is free and open to the public.

The purpose of the book club is to  provide attendees with ideas and advice from popular business books and at least one solid idea to increase their business’s revenues or profits by at least $100,000.

The featured book at this meeting is “The 4-Hour Workweek,” by Timothy Ferriss, which is a motivational guidebook to lifestyle design. It re-examines the standard 40-80 hour workweek and explains the difference between being efficient and being effective.  The author shares the story of how he streamlined his business, eliminating distractions and automating systems until it was not only more profitable, but also took less of his time.

Elizabeth Rusnak of the NW Business Development Association will facilitate the event. She has been in the banking industry since 1985 and is actively involved in all Small Business Administration programs and related advocacy groups. She is a graduate of the University of Washington with a degree in Business Administration.

The Hot100BizBook Club meets once per quarter. The event is co-sponsored by Hot100Business, NW Business Development, Western’s Small Business Development Center, Bellingham Public Library, Clique Studios and Village Books.
