One Thing - Just One Thing January has passed believe it or not and we are already into February. As the second month of another crazy year, I was thinking about the fact that I had not really made a New Year’s Resolution. I think I was just so happy that the Chamber and my family made it out of 2020 – that I did not look too far ahead. And then I thought back to Julie Alexander’s email and decided to take her advice. I also figured I am not the only one who either didn’t make a resolution or have already been unsuccessful in keeping the resolutions made, that I thought I would share her article with you and encourage you to do what I did and start looking forward with focus on just one thing you plan to accomplish for yourself in 2021. Just One Thing: In what has become a classic scene from the movie City Slickers, Billy Crystal’s character, Mitch Robbins, is riding the range with a Curly Washburn, a crusty old ranch hand superbly played by Jack Palance. Their conversation turns philosophical when Curly begins to talk about “the secret of life” and tells Robbins that it’s “one thing – just one thing”. “What is the one thing?” Mitch asks. To which Curly replies, “That’s what you’ve got to figure out.”

As we begin a new year, perhaps it’s time to get a little philosophical, and while we may come to no conclusion regarding the secret of life, perhaps discovering your “one thing” could impact your life in 2021. What is your “one thing”? What’s the “one thing” that – if you did it consistently and did it well – would make a significant and positive difference in your life? Here are some thoughts about what your “one thing” might be… - Deepen your spiritual life. - Resolve a relationship conflict. - Finish something you’ve been putting off. - Improve your prospecting and sales skills. - Manage your time more effectively. - Get organized. - Get serious about your health. - Become a more valued employee. - Give your best effort in everything you do. - Devote regular, focused time to your family and friends. - Support a cause. - Pursue your passion. - Provide flawless customer service. - Be a better parent, child, spouse. - Learn a new skill. - Get out of debt. - Change your environment.

- Take more risks. - Get involved in your community. - Stop lying to yourself. - Read 1-2 books a month. - Challenge yourself to accomplish an ambitious goal. - Volunteer. - Reinvent your career. - Improve your appearance. - Change your attitude. There are as many “one things” as there are individuals. And the secret to being successful this year may be figuring out your “one thing” and then doing something about it – whether it means establishing a positive habit or eliminating a negative one. This year, instead of making a long list of resolutions, why not try focusing on “one thing” – “just one thing” that could make a big difference. Find your “one thing”, do it consistently and well, and 2021 will exceed your expectations.

Congress Reopens & Modifies PPP for Small Business: Congress made changes to the PPP loans in the end of year Pandemic Relief Package. If you received a PPP loan four major changes impact you:

If you did not receive a PPP loan under the original program, it has been reopened as of January 11, 2021 and will continue until March 31, 2021 or until the funds are exhausted. Several changes have been made: 1. Non-profits that are 501(c)(6) organizations are now eligible. 2. You may qualify even if you took the Employee Retention Tax Credit.

1. The regular business expenses paid with the PPP proceeds will be tax deductable.

3. Publicly traded companies are no longer eligible.

2. While only 40% of PPP proceeds can be used for non-payroll expenses, four new categories of non-payroll expenses qualify: operations expenses, supplier costs, worker protection expenses and covered property damage costs.

4. Group insurance premiums now count as payroll expenses for calculating the maximum amount of the loan.

3. If you received and EIDL grant, it is not longer required to be deducted from your PPP proceeds when calculating your PPP grant amount. 4. The period for which expenses count toward your loan forgiveness can be from as little as 8 weeks to as long as 24 weeks.

5. Seasonal employers have more flexibility in picking the 12-week look back period. For more information, click here to see the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Guide to Small Business COVID-19 Emergency Loans:

5. If you have used your PPP proceeds for covered expenses, you can apply for a “second draw� loan. www.grapevinechamber.org F E B R UA R Y 2 0 2 1 l 5

WATCH OUT & BE PREPARED: Since January 1, 2020, there have been 72 Catalytic Converters stolen which is a dramatic increase from the 9 reported stolen in all of 2019.

Common Places where Catalytic Converter theft Occurs?

WHY WOULD SOMEONE STEAL YOUR CATALYTIC CONVERTER?

· Your Home Driveway or Street · Parking Lots · Auto Dealer Lots · Semi-Truck Auto Transport Trailer

Catalytic Converters, along with copper and other metals, have become a hot commodity for thieves. Catalytic Converter theft has become popular because of their value, relative ease to steal (unbolt or cut out), and their lack of identifying markings. A Catalytic Converter is a part of the vehicles exhaust system. It helps reduce vehicle pollution. Catalytic Converters are located under a vehicle on the exhaust pipe before the muffler(s). Thieves take stolen Catalytic Converters to metal recyclers. The recyclers pay an average of $50 per converter for the precious metals inside them. But certain converters they will pay up to $250. Victims pay an average of $1,000 (or an average $250/$500 insurance deductible) to get the converter(s) replaced. It can cost as much as $4,000 however. What Vehicles are targeted by Catalytic Converter Thieves? Any vehicle manufactured after 1974 can be a target. However, Trucks and SUVs (Sports Utility Vehicles) are the vehicles they target the most. Thieves prefer Trucks and SUV’s, because they are higher off the ground and easier to crawl under. Toyota Trucks and SUVs in the ‘90s to the late 2000s are especially vulnerable because the Catalytic Converters are more exposed than the average converter. The thieves can quickly unbolt/cut out the converter in minutes. Some of the larger Toyota Trucks and SUV’s have two Catalytic Converters as well. If your Catalytic Converter has been replaced with an aftermarket Catalytic Converter within the past few years, there is a good chance it won’t be stolen. The new aftermarket Catalytic Converters don’t have as much of the precious metals, so thieves typically don’t take them.

Preventive tips on how to help prevent your Catalytic Converter from getting stolen: The No. 1 way to protect your vehicles Catalytic Converter is to park your vehicle(s) inside a garage. If you must park your vehicle in the driveway, motion detector lights or continuous lights illuminating your driveway may be a deterrent. Educate your friends and neighbors about Catalytic Converter theft so they may serve as a look-out too. Muffler shops are offer creative ways to protect your Catalytic Converter by welding a protective covering to make it difficult for it to be removed. The cost is often less than your insurance deductible and definitely less than the full replacement cost (if you don’t have comprehensive insurance). What if your Catalytic Converter is stolen? If your Catalytic Converter is stolen, you will know right away when you start your vehicle as it will sound like you don’t have a muffler at all (like loud motorcycle mufflers). It is permissible to drive your vehicle directly to a muffler/dealer shop to get the Catalytic Converter replaced. You do not need your vehicle towed to the shop.

TARRANT COUNTY DAYS HAS GONE VIRTUAL: February 23rd & 24th 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.

The Coalition of Tarrant County Chambers of Commerce and the Grapevine Chamber of Commerce would like to invite you to Tarrant County Days - Virtual! Tarrant County Days provides an opportunity for local business and community leaders to hear directly from Texas Senators and State Representatives on business and community issues that matter at the local and state level. While we can’t take a trip to Austin this year, we will convene online to connect and receive an update on the 87th Texas Legislature. Reserve your seat today:

Congress Expands Employee Retention Tax Credit:

representatives that have experienced at least a 25% drop in revenue.

The year end pandemic relief bill expanded the employee retention tax credit beginning January 1, 2021. The prior credit was limited to $5000 per employee. The expanded credit can apply to up to $14000 per employee.

SBA Loan Debt Forgiveness: The new law resumes the government payment of monthly principal and interest on small business loans guaranteed by the SBA under the 7(a), 504, and Microloan programs. Borrowers with loans approved by the SBA prior to the CARES Act will receive an additional three months of payments beginning in February of 2021. Those payments will be capped at $9,000 per borrower per month.

Under the previous rules an employer had to demonstrate a decline in gross receipts of 50% in a quarter. The new requirement is more than 20% in a quarter. The limit on the number of employees a company can have and still qualify has bee raised from a maximum of 100 to a maximum of 500. Employer can now receive both a PPP and an Employee Retention Tax Credit, just not to cover the same expenses. EIDL Grants: The new law reopens the $10,000 EIDL Grant program. Priority for the full amount of the EIDL grant will be given to small businesses with no more than 300 employees, located in lowincome neighborhoods, who have experienced a 30% reduction in gross receipts during any 8-week period between March 2, and December 31, 2020 compared to a comparable 8-week period before March 2. If you meet this description and received a grant that is less than $10,000 you can reapply to receive the difference. Grants for Shuttered Venue Operators: The law creates a new $15 billion grant program for eligible live venue operators or promoters, theatrical producers, live performing arts organization operators, museum operators, motion picture theatre operators, or talent 8 l F E B R UA R Y 2 021 www.grapevinechamber.org

Grants are equal to the lesser of $10 million or 45% of gross earned revenue in 2019. Grants must be used for specified expenses such as payroll costs, rent, utilities, and personal protective equipment. If you receive a grant you may not apply for a new PPP loan.

After that, certain borrower will receive an additional five months of payments, including: borrowers with SBA microloans or 7(a) Community Advantage loans or borrowers with any 7(a) or 504 loan in hard hit sectors: educational services; arts, entertainment and recreation; food service and accommodation; support activities for mining, and oil and gas extraction; apparel manufacturing; clothing and clothing accessories stores; sporting goods, hobby, book and music stores; air transportation; transit and ground passenger transportation; scenic and sightseeing transportation; publishing industries; motion picture and sound recording; broadcasting; rental and leasing services; and personal and laundry services. New SBA loans made or approved between December 22, 2020 and September 30, 2021 will receive six months of government payment of principal and interest, also capped at $9,000 per month. For more information see the U.S. Chamber Guide to Small Business COVID-19 Emergency Loans.

This is the time of year we are normally gearing up for the Great Taste of Grapevine. This is one of our two main fundraisers of the year, and such a fun event! We do not have a date for the event yet, and it won’t be March or April as normal, but we are still working toward holding the event a little later in the year. Stay tuned for more information as we are able to make it available so you can save the date! 2020 handed us a year when the Great Taste, as well as our other main fundraiser – Elves on the Run 5K and Fun Run – could not be held. As a philanthropic organization which relies on fundraising to fulfill our mission of giving back to the community, you can imagine The Women’s Division had a dilemma: How do we still support GCISD school children and Grapevine seniors when we were not able to raise funds for these causes? Through the donations of many people and organizations, we were able to continue to do the work so important to us at almost the same level as we have in the past, THANK YOU: Classic Chevrolet - The Thompson Group Frost Bank Bank of the West Grapevine Convention & Visitors Bureau GRACE Kim & Jose Deras Janice & John Kane Duff & Patrick O’Dell Helen Jean Lucas Reed Paula Wilbanks Additional thanks to those who made donations to support our 2020 charitable efforts: C. W. Higgins Mindy McClure Balla Wright Clydene Johnson Morgan Nichols Susie Howell Jocelyn Hope State Farm

And our heartfelt thanks to many, many others, too many to list, who supported all of our efforts throughout the year to make sure we fulfilled our service goals! Please join us at our next Luncheon on Tuesday, February 9th, at the Blankenship Business Center at 11:45 a.m.. Register in advance on the Chamber website or contact Susie Howell for more information at Susie.howell@ frostbank.com. *Social distancing & Mask policy in place.
