Thank you to everyone who participated in our 24-hour live stream Stand with Small Business event this past week! From our sponsors, to our viewers, to our live stream guests, to our new and current members, thank you to everyone! You are the reason why The McGraw Council exists and without each and every one of you, we would not be here and our big event last week would not have ever happened! So thank YOU for making it possible!

As you can imagine, we had some incredible discussions throughout the 24 hours we were recording and some amazing guests, including chamber of commerce presidents, a state senator, small business owners, and other subject matter experts! There are, however, a few important takeaways for small business owners who were not able to partake:

  • Start digitalizing your business today, even if you don’t think it impacts you right now
  • Keep an eye on artificial intelligence and how it may change your business in the future
  • Know your customers and how to reach them best
  • Know your financial situation, particularly the alignment of cash flow
  • Understand how to hire the right people for your business
  • Lead your business by leading your team
  • Take control of your mind and your day
  • Money makes a good reward but makes a poor purpose
  • And much, much more!

To watch the streamed event, visit our Facebook page and YouTube channel and click on any of the listed segments! We had an absolute wonderful time and even had the blessing of generating great interest – as a result of our efforts to help others achieve their American Dream, we’ve been featured on FOX, NBC, and CBS, among other news networks! Join us as we continue to help small business owners achieve their American Dream!
