Jan 22, 2008 10:47 pmSmall Business Think Tank Member Listing- Schwind Bookkeeping Service#

Judy Schwind
Schwind Bookkeeping -- Part Time Bookeeping for Full Time Businesses.

Schwind Bookkeeping & Notary Service provides affordable accounting, bookkeeping, payrool, tax and notary services for small businesses.

All small businesses have the need for a qualified bookkeeper. Some owners want to do this themselves but do not have the experience, knowledge or time to do it themselves.

This is where we come in.

We offer a host of different services for the small businesses of Western Washington. We customize packages that are right for you. There is no need to pay for services you don't need. That is why we will assist you in finding the best economical package to suit your business. We will do that by listening to what you are looking for, examining your business structure and applying the correct accounting method to maximize your business' bottom line.

Our goal is to help new or small businesses get set up with a computerized accounting system (preferable Quickbooks or Peachtree) and take the pressure of the day to day bookkeeping functions off their shoulders. We find that most one-person businesses have no time to keep their records properly, they do things by hand and wind up giving their $150/hour accountant a bag of 'stuff' once a month. Pay your accountant the big bucks to do your tax return or better yet let us assist you there as well. Let us do everything in between for LESS!

BrandMyBooks.com combines the power of viral marketing with the psychology of influence as outlined by Robert Cialdini to help small businesses design viral marketing campaigns to boost their business to new levels. You can see a sample of how this works Here.

Bookwise is all about personal and leadership development. Free books (Leaders are Readers!), mentoring and coaching by some of America's top motivational speakers on life skills, business building, wealth building, tax training for home-based businesses, and relationship building. While Bookwise is an extraordinary business opportunity for those interested in building it as a business, it is just as valuable and extraordinary as a personal growth program.

Hello everyone,

I have been a member of Ryze for quite a while and I can´t believe that I didn´t find this network till now!!!

I am the owner of a small marketing firm called Redknight Marketing. I also own a internet marketing training business where we teach people everything they need to know about internet marketing. We are going to be expanding that soon to teach small businesses owners how they can utilize the internet to do business locally.

For now we just setup a website that gives away free squeeze page setups, but that should be expanded soon to a second part where people can build a full website online, the beauty of it is that it does not require any technical knowledge what so ever.
This is the free squeeze page tool, will try to let you guys know when the full website tool comes up as well if I can. 

I hope to see everyone around in this forum, thank you for being around.

All the best,

Joan Bailey
My name is Joan Bailey.

Through a series of health issues, we stumbled across a nutritional food supplement and ended up so impressed, we signed up to become distributors. This is what led me to you.

We focus on one product that supplies your body with the necessary nutrients to improve your immune system. We believe that our bodies were originally intended to repair itself - and with the corporate companies taking over the farmlands, our necessary foods are grown with chemicals; from fertilizers, to preservatives - thus, decreasing the natural nutritional process. This results in a 30% decline of the nutrient value of fresh fruit/vegetables. So, even if you try to eat healthy, your body just doesn't get what it needs to maintain a truly healthy system.

We also want to start now to decrease the possibility of being tied to maintenance medications for the rest of our lives, and we hope to find other like-minded indivuals who are ready to get healthier as well.

I hope to learn from this networking group, and gain friendships as well.

  • Only the highest of quality ingredients are used
  • No caffeine or refined sugars
  • First to market products
  • World-wide exclusive patent on the cold process used to make the products

The best part is the company and all the support they give.  We work as a group/organization and that is how we grow.

R&N Collins has developed a 'Ready-for-Use Website' that is ready-for-use almost instantly. According to R&N Collins lead developer Rodney Collins, a Ready-for-Use Website is easy, fast, and affordable and is an ideal way for any individual or business to establish an Internet presence.

Collins also says that it is imperative to have an up-to-date, well designed website for a successful online business. However, the initial and on-going costs can be prohibitive. Many online businesses who are not in the position to spend large amounts of money on a custom built website turn to another alternative – Ready-for-Use Websites.

A Ready-for-Use Website is an extraordinary product that delivers a complete package (domain name registration, hosting, actual website, content management system, and search engine optimisation).

Hello Tanked Brains.

*Enters the party room with drink in hand.  Sticking out my hand to shake yours, a nice firm grip, no sweaty palms, good eye contact, big smile, and away we go... *

I first have to boast four of the most darling grand-sugars God ever put on His green earth. Really, I swear. But then again aren't they all simply too precious for words? Cannot help myself, I am a Gramma.

My first online company took shape in 1992 with a good partner who, after three great years, tons of money made, absconded with $128,002.31 dollars of my money. If I ever find the scum, I will gleefully seek out a grizzly mob member to break his knees.  The $2.31 was the tip off, as it was an odd amount on the books.

My second venture online has grown to be a great enterprise encompassing many URLs and uh, I am the sole owner, no partners involved now or ever again. No one has access to the bookkeeping system except me. This makes for some long days and nights. ;)

I am a web developer and do my best to be as honest a person as is possible. Please do not put me in a category with the so-called SEO expert, money grubbing, self-serving, all encompassing, we know it all, category of web developers who turn out to be the scum who take your money and give you a lame a** website and otherwise zip in return. Your chances are about 50/50 to find the real services you are looking for.  I fall into that upper 50%, the one's that deliver, in this particular scum market.

Read between the lines when looking for web services. Not all are created equal. What Ryze affords us all is a place to learn about each other and search out services and products that we can use without being scammed.  Web development includes but is not limited to hosting, design, SEO, content writing, linking and marketing strategies.

BEK - Brown Enterprises of KS (the Buddy Web Group is new and still in development) has been making me a nice living for over fifteen years and I hope for far in the future. I work from home and make a decent living at what I do. I don't jet off to exotic places (although that would be fun, eh?) and then bore all my friends with emails full of photos of how great it was for ME (UH, that would be fun too.)  I like being at home, working from home, and seeing my family on a regular basis. We can live, love and laugh right where we are.

Let’s see, what else... OH, I am a copywriter and editor.  I started out writing tech manuals (long ago in a galaxy far, far away for the surface mount technology industry from the crash dummy point of view... that is a story for another time).  Don't depend on me to write anything flowery. It is usually not my style.

Visit my Ryze page if you want to know more about my businesses and a tiny bit about my life. If you read the text, you will find how to ask me to be your friend on Ryze. After all, that is what it is all about, right?

Great to meet all you Tanked Thinkers!

Eileen Brown  :D

Linda Walker
Focus Action Success offers training and coaching products and services for passionate entrepreneurs. Our clients are visionaries who see the "Big Picture" but struggle with details. Amazingly intuitive, their vivid imaginations, extraordinary creativity and unconventional thinking can be a true gift, though they're often overwhelmed with so many ideas and opportunities, they can't focus on just one long enough to realize their dreams.

We have special expertise working with entrepreneurs with "Entrepreneurial ADHD". Most entrepreneurs benefit from strategies very different from those used by other people. While the labels are not important, the proven effectiveness of the specialised strategies we use to help them is.

We help entrepreneurs harness their extraordinary energy and abilities to take full advantage of their creativity, high tolerance for risk and adaptability to allow them to reach their full potential. We empower them to develop new strategies to channel their energy, focus their idea-cluttered brain and overcome procrastination so they can start, organize and finish projects.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Hello everyone,

I have to say this is a wonderful idea! I think its a great way for everyone to get to know eachother and what business they have. Kudos!

I'm a very busy and active mom of 6 wonderful children. I have 4 teen daughters and 2 younger boys. When I'm not chasing the children around, I'm working on my business,and making products.

I have just started a business for all handmade products made by mom's to help them be at home with their families and earn an income as well. I have many consultants as well that are mom's and are wanting to be at home and still earn an income as well.

We also support many charities with the purchases made from our products there are two charities a month that we raise money for. My family and the other mom's are very much into giving back to the communities and helping to make this a better world.

Our products are all handmade and we do have online shows, Some of our mom's do home shows as well. We are going to be on the expo-connector.com shortly as well.

We carry Candles,soaps,hand painted glassware, wax dipped bears and puppies,and coming soon a full line of baby products. I will still be adding more products to our lines as well. All of these are handmade items. I will leave you the link so you can see our site it is still under construction but will be in full force by next week.

I am also looking into hiring other mom's to help with packaging our products as well as handicapped people in the area. They are treated poorly in the work place and I would love to see them in a happier environment.

Please feel free to take a look at our products. Our site will be ready next week to start accepting orders.

Thank you,
Debbie Schuster

I've just discovered Ryze and Think Tank is the first network I've joined. Earlier this year I started out my own business - very exciting after working for others since finishing school 13 years ago. I've been told to network, network, network! So that's what I'm now doing. I live in a gorgeous little beach side town in Queensland, Australia and my business is home based. I am a virtual assistant who can provide time and cost effective administration support remotely. I can help other small businesses or entrepreneurs the world over with those mundane administrative tasks that are expanding by the minute - word processing, data entry, transcription, spreadsheets, virtual office management, plus more. In my past life I was a legal PA, paralegal, secretary, admin assistant. It's great I am now able to use all of these skills in working for myself. If you are in the Northern Hemisphere, I can literally do your work while you sleep - how efficient is that! Your Extra Office Virtual Assistance - Juggling your needs... Virtually!

CDMM - Synergisitc Business Marketing

I design synergistice marketing programs for professional speakers and small buisness entrepreneurs seeking to penetrate high-profile niche markets.

As I see it, one of the challenges regarding online business networking is the development of meaningful business relationships. It's relatively easy to develop a large Ryze Friends List over time. But, to develop a truly meaningful and mutually beneficial business relationship with those "friends" is something else again. It can be very time-consuming and even frustrating.

I have been reading a lot lately online about netweaving and pursuing big ideas by taking a small and targeted approach. Did you see the movie some years ago entitled, "Pay It Forward?" That was a fictional account of a young boy who simply decides to help three people. In return for giving help to just three people, he requests those he helped not pay him back but "pay it forward." That is to say, each person the boy helped in turn helps three more people...and so on.

Well, while the movie and the book that inspired the movie were fiction, the Pay It Forward Foundation is very real and today operates in countries around the world. The foundation actually uses young people to engage in "pay it forward" activities to improve communities.

More recently, a fellow named Bob Littell has taken the "pay it forward" concept and applied it to the commercial business world, what he calls "netweaving." You might call his idea the Golden Rule as applied to business networking, what goes around comes around, or my personal favorite - "Good things happen to those who help MAKE good things happen."

In the best tradition of business netweaving, I have recently set up a SIG (Special Interest Group) called Clusters. This SIG is basically a forum where people who CARE about the success of others, can CONNECT with folks seeking help and come up with a GOOD DESIGN that actually benefits all those involved.

If you would like to be a virtual mentor in this system to just FOUR of these folks, send me a private message. Perhaps you can show four people a better way to work their way to success and reap benefits for your business in the process?

As a independent sales rep for Local Ad Link, I have the great homor of helping small businesses throughout the US to drive more of their target market into their stores. Sixty nine percent of Americans do internet searches before we go shopping. My business offers you quality content, a fixed rate and geotargeted visibility, not on one search engine but over 100 of them. When a prospect goes online and searches for someonne in your business category, do you want to chance that he will find you or be found near the top of the screen?
