What business owners are saying about our workshops:

The workshops offered by Kelley Hardesty Smith and Company were outstanding. Being a small but growing company, I found each session informative and relevant. Excellent outlines, notes, and real-world exercises were given at each class. I truly enjoyed the interaction with the other participants. I highly recommend owners and managers sign up!
– Thomas Jackson (Owner, Jackson Systems LLC), Indianapolis, IN

The business seminars provided a great opportunity to meet other small business owners and share ideas. The material was very informative and useful and also gave me incentive to stay on top of how my business was operating. It also gave me great ideas to help run my business more smoothly.

What is BBW?

BBW is a membership program for clients and business people who wish to improve a wide range of aspects of their business in a simple and convenient way. As a member of BBW, you will meet once a month for just 2 hours to work on a different business strategy or idea. We will review and discuss the topic on hand, and share ways to implement the strategies within your business.

You will discover that many business-building opportunities are readily available to you and we will help you tackle the challenges that are keeping you from taking advantage of them. Your business will grow and your profits will improve by working smarter rather than harder.

Building Working Relationships

Each meeting gives you the opportunity to meet and do business with other BBW members, who are business people just like you. You will be able to combine the shared experience in the group with your own resources to work on specific issues you face in your business.

As a new small business owner I can truly appreciate the workshops. The workshop content included the main functions of a successful business as well as simple and effective management techniques. [The program structure] leads to the exchange of useful ideas between participants. This is stuff I can use for years to come.
– Ralph Redmond (Owner, Indiana Outdoor Lighting), Indianapolis, IN

BBW is about giving you a support network for implementing new strategies and ideas – you do not have to face the challenges alone. You hear about other people's experiences and learn from them.

Receiving the Right Support

Companies need more than just someone who will do their financials and taxes. BBW is an excellent resource for those businesses interested in growing and maximizing their potential. I was amazed at how much the different businesses had in common. These companies may have been in different fields, but we all had something to share.
– Vince Binder (Branch Office Manager, Citizens Bank), Indianapolis, IN

A full guarantee

BBW is fully guaranteed. If at any time you are not completely satisfied with the program, please let us know and we will simply refund that month's membership. All we ask from you in that situation is a frank and open explanation of your disappointment so that we can learn from the experience and do a better job in the future.
