By: Melissa Davis, Charter Real Estate After an extensive search, the Chamber is excited to introduce a new leader. Rod Henry has been selected as the new President of the Temple Chamber of Commerce. The role has been vacant for the past year after the resignation of Bourdon Wooten. Since that time, the Chamber Board has been working to find a replacement with the vision and determination to lead the Temple business community into even greater prosperity. The Board worked closely with Waverly Partners, an experienced executive search consulting firm, to find a replace that would best serve the needs of our growing business community. “I think it was wise to use Waverly Partners to help us narrow our focus,” said Board member Harry Macey. Waverly sorted through hundreds of resumes and preselected candidates based on our community, the vision of the Chamber and specific criteria identified by the board. Macey added,“Instead of our committee spending time analyzing dozens of resumes, we were able to see only qualified candidates who would be a great fit in our community.” Rod Henry comes to Temple from the Indiana community of Terre

Haute. In his 21 years as Chamber President there, Rod accomplished a great deal for the community and its various industries. In 2010, Terre Haute was named Indiana Chamber’s Community of the Year. Mr. Henry worked to revive the downtown area, attracting two hotels, expanding the children’s museum and bringing various galleries and restaurants to the area. For the Chamber, Rod led a team that saw 350+% growth in membership revenue and a total revenue increase of 130+%. He worked with various community leaders to establish programs like the Better Health Wabash Valley initiative, Terre Haute A Level Above campaign, Wabash River Development & Beautification, Wabash Valley Education Consortium

and Terre Haute Young Leaders, a program similar to Leadership Temple. Rod is experienced in working hand in hand with EDC leaders. In his over 36+ years of affiliation with Chamber organizations, he has partnered with EDC and community leaders not only to bring new business to his communities but to spur growth of existing industry. Board member Stacie Bratton says she is encouraged by Mr. Henry’s record. “Rod brings with him a true sense of what Chamber work is all about,” she said. Bratton was impressed by Rod’s “enthusiasm for chamber work and serving the business community of Temple.”

Keep Temple Beautiful Recognized as Gold Star Affiliate By: Tanya Gray, Keep Temple Beautiful

Keep Texas Beautiful (KTB) , a statewide grassroots environmental and community improvement organization, recently named Keep Temple Beautiful a Gold Star Affiliate. A designation conferred on just 62 of the statewide organization's more than 360 affiliates in 2013. To stay in good standing with Keep Texas Beautiful, community affiliates must annually submit a report, pay dues, attend at least one training session and participate in at least one Keep Texas Beautiful endorsed activity. In 2004, the organization introduced the concept of Gold Star recognition to reward those communities who sought to go above and beyond the established requirements. To achieve this status, affiliates are required to meet additional benchmarks; they must share information on their mission and goals, answer questions about their educational programs and solid waste initiatives, participate in the Keep Texas Beautiful or Governor’s Community Achievement Awards programs and provide a letter

of support from their community. Keep Texas Beautiful formally recognized Gold Star communities during its 46th Annual Conference, held in June in downtown San Antonio. The status is an important honor for our local organization because it indicates that we are active in many ways in promoting, educating and beautifying the community. Keep Temple Beautiful successfully implemented programs to prevent litter, reduce waste, beautify community areas and educate local citizens last year. These included a Litter Index survey, Blackland tree planting of 63 trees, Eco-Lunch & Learns, school environmental presentations, e-recycling events, sitting on 3 of the East Temple Revitalization and Redevelopment

committees, being a Keep Texas Beautiful conference presenter with Scott & White and support of the City's curbside recycling program among other great initiatives. Keep Temple Beautiful regularly conducts projects that assist in the betterment of the City of Temple.

Entrepreneuring as a Career Path By: Vane Hugo, The Entrepreneur Center of Central Texas

The next generation has seen that the only way to move up the ladder is to job hop every few years. Some, who don’t hop soon enough, find themselves out of a job before they find the next one; a more difficult position, not helping them save for retirement. Those graduating now find white collar employment elusive. Many degreed professionals are working at menial service jobs. So, when will we stop telling kids to, “Get a job!” If the traditional route no longer leads to success, what does? To earn the income required for a good lifestyle requires producing something of value.

If you can’t work for someone else and be part of that company’s production, then you have to “Be the company!”

People who build companies turn the delivery of a product or service into profit for the company and its owners. They are called Entrepreneurs. Since the financial crunch, all net new jobs in Texas have come from people starting and growing small businesses. Small Business is what is making the economy slowly grow and by extension, provides workers the opportunity to be employed and for business owners to profit from engagement in commerce.

For generations young people have been told, “Study hard, get good grades, go to college, get a job, work your way up the ladder, and retire with a pension.” Those of college age, at the end of WWII, lived by this creed and by and large did well. Baby

Boomers had a great ride until they reached their 50’s and have been slammed by the financial crash of 2008 and company downsizings forcing many into late career changes or early retirement, not the financially secure lifestyle enjoyed by their parents.

Whether you are an out-of-work Baby Boomer, currently in high school or anywhere in between, entrepreneurism is an alternative to the traditional career path. What’s holding you back? Not everyone will be willing to take the responsibility for starting and running a business. There is no regular paycheck and a lot of uncertainty. There are many things to learn. It requires commitment and drive. It will require full commitment of all your resources. What resources? There are really only two resources, Time and Money. You have your time and money as well as the resources of anyone else you can talk into helping you.

Many say they can’t afford to start a business. Not so! You may not be able to fund the inventory to open a huge retail business, but there are many options: • Baker, car detailer, cleaning service, cosmetics, handyman, Internet affiliate, internet info sales, lawn service, personal shopper, personal trainer, photography, skin care, sports nutrition, travel, tutor, virtual assistant, window washer, writer…and a bunch more. Even if you are underemployed, if you have a job, keep it until you can get a

business effort going. If you are unemployed, then pick a business and jump in! Approach the process of starting a business as an opportunity to learn some new skills. Instead of having your school or company pick what you study, pick yourself; then you can learn what you need to know. Approach entrepreneuring as a string of endless opportunities rather than a series of obstacles. There is really no reason to delay starting a business, now! It is time to take the first step on the way to being an entrepreneur. Go get some entrepreneurial knowledge. “Where?”, you say. There are many places that have low or no cost services for small business development. Here are some options in the area: • The Entrepreneur Center of Central Texas in Temple www.tec-centex.com • The Small Business Development Center at McLennan County College (with offices in Temple and Copperas

A key to business success is to help the people around you be successful. I’m passing this along to you – you pass it on to help the people around you to succeed. How? Just send this along! Who do you know that could benefit from reading this today? Just get this to them! Do whatever you can to support small business. Start one, shop at one, or pass along these resources to help them grow. Until next month… Vane Hugo is the Executive Director of The Entrepreneur Center of Central Texas, located at 19 North Main St. Temple, TX 76501.

Local Advertising, the Pros and Cons of Print By: Erin Spencer, Temple College If you shop at any local retail store you will notice an increase of local magazines that are designed to highlight Central Texas. These magazines such as Tex Appeal and Bell County Living (which is soon to hit our market) are typically free and can range from a highly targeted audience such as mothers, brides and senior citizens to more broad audiences such as anyone living between Austin and Waco. So, how do you decide if these publications are right for your marketing budget? Advantages: 1. Magazines offer a little more glitz to the mix of print advertising. Most times their ads are in full color, which allows for a more creative and eyecatching design. 2. Locally themed magazines have the

advantage of targeting the local people, places and interests making them highly interesting to the customers local businesses are trying to target. Also, because they are free many readers will pick one up just to see what is inside. 3. Because of their glossy appearance, Magazines have a little longer shelf life than other forms of print media. Most are monthly publications, which means current issues stay on coffee tables for longer periods of time than daily or weekly publications. Disadvantages: 1. Magazines can be more costly than other forms of print advertising, especially when it comes to advertising in publications that are free to the public. Because there is no subscription fee to offset the cost of printing, these

costs are absorbed into the price of advertising. 2. Some magazines require a multi-run commitment. The most common requirements are six-month or oneyear contracts and there is always a little wiggle room for negotiation. 3. Because magazines are a monthly publication, the ability to get in that last minute ad is diminished. Deadlines are usually early in the month to accommodate printing schedules. Magazines are great publicity tools that small business should consider as part of their marketing strategy. Be sure the target audience matches the demographic you are trying to reach and remember to use it as one of the tools in your marketing toolbox.
