    Bigger is not Always Better -- The Impact of Small Business on Family, Relationships and the Local  Community


    Join presenter, Dr. Elaine Holt, "The Doctor Next Door," for a personal account of how the power of referrals, empathy for others and passion for what you do can propel a small business of ANY kind to soaring heights.


    Dr. Holt will discuss what inspired her to document her decades of experience as a well-known and highly-regarded Bergen County internist in her book, The Doctor Next Door.


    At the luncheon, she will expand upon:


    1. How the personalization of your service breeds both staff and client loyalty.

    2. Why the power of relationships are the foundation of any small business -- especially a small business that is a service profession.

    3. If you do what you love and love what you do, then work won't seem like work.


    About the Presenter:

    Elaine Holt, MD is "The Doctor Next Door" who owns and operates a solo Internal Medicine practice serving her local community in Bergen County, New Jersey. She completed her medical residency at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York City after which she practiced in North Carolina and Virginia. After several years away, she returned to her home state of New Jersey in 2004 to open her practice with the belief that the doctor-patient relationship is the foundation of the practice of medicine. Committed to personalized patient care and unrelenting patient advocacy, Dr. Holt has managaed to build and sustain a solo medical  practice despite the national trend to corporatize medicine.

    Must-Know Tips Before You Remodel To Avoid "Design Regret!"


    Join us for March's “Take 3 Business Breakfast" led by Mary Brennan, President of M. Brennan Design Associates, an interior design firm that specializes in construction projects.


    When it comes to a residential or commercial construction project, the end goal is essentially a seamless process and end product that is not only functional and aesthetically pleasing, but fiscally responsible. However, there can be many roadblocks that get in the way...


    Remodeling a kitchen or any other major part of your home is something that most people tackle at some point in the life of their home.  As professionals in our varied careers, we may be well-equipped in our work arena, yet in the world of construction and remodeling, we can feel like a fish out of water (unless you are in the industry, it is simply not your expertise!) 


    The design process involves hundreds of things to think about and decisions to make, and you never want to look back on your investment and say "if only I would have known...."  With some recommendations in advance, you can make the whole process enjoyable and not torture.


    Mary will address the most common things that people say they wish they would have considered before doing their major remodeling project.


    She'll provide 3 Takeaways that include:

    • How to decide which materials to choose to best suit your needs.
    • How to budget in advance for a major remodeling project.
    • Tips on things to consider that you might not realize ahead of time.


    About The Presenter:

    Mary Brennan is an accomplished Interior Designer with 20 years of experience working on a vast and very diverse range of projects, primarily residential interior design, and also including commercial design ranging from lobbies and corporate spaces to medical offices, health clubs and restaurants. Most of her work is focused on residential interior design with a specialty in construction and renovation projects. 

     

    Her studio, M.Brennan Design Associates, began in 1998 and has flourished over many years, built upon a steady stream of referrals from happy clients. Learn more about Mary and her company here.
