Happy New Year! The start of a new year is always seen as a time for new beginnings. There is nothing in front of you except shiny new possibilities. I know you spent a part of the holidays resting and recouping from what was probably a wild ride through 2015. I certainly did.
Whether the outcome was good, bad, or indifferent, we know as business people, we cannot spend much time reflecting on the past. What’s done is done and we need to turn our attention to the future. So, the day after we finish our reflection, we start planning for the future. How will we make 2016 even better? Where are our opportunities and how are we going to take advantage of them?
For us, it’s time to better brand Enterprise Publishing Inc. “Who’s that?” You ask. My point exactly! Not many of our constituents are aware that MBE magazine is published by Enterprise Publishing Inc. Oh sure, you’ve seen it mentioned here or there but you don’t know it unless prompted.
Also, did you know that we partner with other MWBEs to produce videos on behalf of our clients? Check out our YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/MBEmag/videos. You might have seen one or two of them attached to advertising or editorial in our digital edition or promoted on our Twitter and Facebook feeds. We are adding podcasts to the mix this year and webinars are not far behind.
We are also working on creating some strategic alliances to expand our reach and help more MWBEs succeed. Information is power! For example, some of you may have seen our new Weekly Digest. We have partnered with Diversity Reporting Solutions to distribute this via e-mail. The digest consists of four or five diversity-related articles from around the world, which may or may not have made the news the previous week. Send an e-mail to email@example.com to be added to our e-mail list.
If you like these offerings, consider purchasing or sponsoring one or two or more to enhance your visibility in 2016. Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
There is a point toward the end of the film, Back to the Future Part III, when Doc tells Marty and his girlfriend “Your future hasn’t been written yet. No one’s has. Your future is whatever you make it. So make it a good one.”
MBE magazine has supported MWBEs and the supplier diversity community for over 30 years.
We’ve done our part and will continue to do it. Consider how you can help us write your future and ours. Let’s make it a good one, together!
