We received some great news this week. We made it to the next round of the Business Impact NW Impact Pitch Competition - the video round. https://businessimpactnw.org/annualevents/impact/
We made the cut from 50 to 23 for this round. Now we have to submit a no more than 4-minute video. Then from September 4 to September 12 people can vote once a day on their favorite video out of the 23. The top vote-getters will pitch their business on October 4. The winner receives $10,000. We will be sending the link to our video to everyone and asking for their vote.
We took part in the webinar from BINW that covered the rules of the video and gave some general advice on making the video.
We completed course 8 of the HelloSign Digital Transformation Course. This one talked about
how your customers can force your company to digitally transform your company. This has been
a great and very informative course. https://www.hellosign.com/digitalstrength
We spent some time looking at possible pitch competitions for us to enter the rest of this year and in 2019.
We gave a webinar on HR laws for companies with less than 50 employees, EO and how to handle difficult employees. The webinar was sponsored by Business Impact NW. About 20 people attended the webinar. There were some great questions at the end.

It was especially great talking to Andrew as it turns out we served in the same Army unit at Fort Hood waaaay back in the day. When I said our motto "Can Do" and our mascot "Lobos" It was as if we were transported back in time. Andrew said some names I had not heard in a while. It was great catching up with him.
As usual, we continue to recruit and network for cavnessHR.
We ended the week with a great 3 hour call with Steven Matley of SM Diversity of how we can continue to help our companies grow among other items of discussion
