    Subject: Your speech on on your first 100 days



    Headline: Don’t ignore us—again



    Someone needs to send the mayor a memo like the one I began above.


    A few weeks ago, a tax lawyer I know responded immediately to one of my posts on the ups and downs of our new mayor with a simple statement. "All my clients hate him," he wrote. There was a list of specific grievances, but the most important message is that they felt he didn’t care about them or their problems or the role they play in making New York prosperous.


    Consider what happened last week, when his own deputy mayor for economic development unveiled a major new report on the tech industry in New York. Mr. de Blasio crashed the event—tieless to supposedly fit in with the tech theme—and then talked about his victory in winning pre-K. That shows a lot of interest in the concerns of tech people.


    A few weeks earlier, a new roller coaster was commissioned at Coney Island. Michael Bloomberg would have been there to talk about how important tourism is to the city and how he would make sure that industry boosted the fortunes of that part of Brooklyn. In this administration, not even a deputy mayor showed up. It was an event worth only the presence of the president of the city's Economic Development Corp.


    On a more substantive matter, could Mayor de Blasio have shown less interest in the concerns of business people—primarily those running small companies—as he pushed through and basked in the triumph of the broader, toughened sick-leave bill?


    I know the mayor and his aides are in contact with the business power brokers, but that is not enough. It is time for him to acknowledge the people who run the businesses that make the city work and to make it clear he understands that a thriving economy is high on his priority list.


    Thursday would be a good time to start.

  • 04/11/14--10:20: How do you define marketing?

  • Marketing is one of those things that’s difficult to define. It doesn't seem to have a definition everyone will agree to, at least according to most popular dictionaries.

    For example, one dictionary defined marketing as the act or process of selling or purchasing in a market, the process or technique of promoting, selling, and distributing a product or service.

    Or how about this one: Marketing is an aggregate of functions involved in moving goods from producer to consumer.

    Here’s one more: The total of activities involved in the transfer of goods from the producer or seller to the consumer or buyer, including advertising, shipping, storing, and selling.

    That’s the way dictionaries explain it. And I suppose they’re okay. But when you walk up to people on the street and ask them to define marketing, you get very different definitions. Marketing is selling. Marketing is advertising. Marketing is promoting a product or service.

    You can (or perhaps can’t) appreciate the dilemma I faced when I was writing How to Close More Business in Less Time. That’s why I created my own definition. But I didn’t define marketing, per se, but something I called good marketing as any activity that speeds, shortens, streamlines, or favorably influences the outcome of their sales process.

    That definition worked and continues to work for me because I believe it is critically important for businesses to integrate marketing with the sales process, and because I believe the fundamental role of marketing is to directly support the sales process.

    But I am curious and I wonder if it would be possible to come up with a definition we’d all agree to.

    So I’ll ask again, how you define marketing?

After networking at various MCC events, I have been retained by international clients from Dubai, Turkey, Czech Republic, England, Switzerland, and Australia seeking to set up operations in New York, as well as by many local companies either just organizing or already in business and seeking to grow.

    For the first time in history, diet-related diseases kill more people than communicable diseases and in the United States, today’s children may have a shorter life expectancy than their parents. Obesity now exceeds smoking as one of the biggest drivers of our healthcare costs, accounting for over $190 billion annually, and is directly related to preventable chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some forms of cancer. In addition to direct healthcare costs, annual costs associated with employee absenteeism and lost productivity due to obesity and related chronic conditions have risen to over $153 billion. Unless we change the course of our current path, the incidence of diet-related diseases will continue to increase, adding to our national debt, health insurance premiums and business expenses.


    Next week, the United States Healthful Food Council (USHFC), is launching Eat REAL New York to help reverse these trends. Established in 2011, the USHFC is a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization dedicated to fighting diet-related disease by realigning the foodservice industry’s incentives with consumers’ health interests. Americans are consuming more meals prepared away from home than ever before and market trends in the foodservice industry have created a competitive environment based on serving what is profitable, not what is healthful. The USHFC works towards its mission through the Responsible Epicurean and Agricultural Leadership (REAL) Certification, a market-based incentive that recognizes food and foodservice establishments for utilizing nutrition and sustainability best practices.

    Utilizing the points-based REAL Index, independent registered dietitians conduct a comprehensive establishment review that includes menu analysis, invoice and supply chain verification, and interviews. Establishments are credited with points across a range of best practices such as the use of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, healthy preparation methods, moderate portion sizes, unsweetened beverages, healthy children’s options and sustainable sourcing. Those that satisfy the necessary requirements are awarded REAL Certification.

    Since launching REAL Certification in Washington, D.C. last year with 19 restaurants, the program has certified nearly 100 foodservice locations across the country. These include the café at Google San Francisco, Music City Center in Nashville, Restaurant Nora in D.C., the popular chain Mixt Greens and many others. You can find restaurant profiles along with chef interviews for all REAL Certified establishments at www.eatreal.org.
    On May 5, the USHFC will launch Eat REAL New York at the historic James Beard House at an event preceding the James Beard Foundation Awards. The inaugural class of New York restaurants includes: ‘wichcraft, ICI, Locanda Vini e Olii, Bareburger, Rose Water Restaurant, Rusty Mackerel, Insurgo Project, and the Friday Night Dinner at Natural Gourmet Institute.

    These restaurants are not the USHFC’s only connection to New York. At last month’s inaugural REAL Food Innovator Awards, which celebrate leaders in nutrition and sustainability, the USHFC recognized former Mayor Michael Bloomberg as a REAL Food Innovator amongst government officials and NYU’s Dr. Marion Nestle as the REAL Food Innovator of the Year.

    In her keynote address, Dr. Nestle applauded the USHFC’s ability to help the foodservice industry align the food they make and serve with the health and nutritional needs of the public. Among other successes, USHFC has helped a DC food truck substantially increase sales of its healthier offerings and is working with the State of Tennessee to lower the rates of diabetes and obesity.

    The USHFC looks forward to similar successes in New York and contributing to the health of the city and its businesses.

    More women angels bet on new ventures.

    By Eilene Zimmerman
    May 6, 2014 12:01 A.M.

    Ennis

    Before Anastasia Leng left Google in August 2012 to co-found the startup Hatch, she told female colleagues of her plans. "They said, 'When you're ready, come to me for investment,'" said Ms. Leng.

    They became key supporters. Female investors contributed $325,000 of the $1 million seed round for Hatch, a Manhattan-based marketplace where users can redesign jewelry, home decor and accessories posted on the site and have artisans around the world custom-make it. Hatch launched to the public last fall.

    New York is fast becoming an epicenter of a trend that is helping entrepreneurs like Ms. Leng: Increasingly familiar with the world of startup funding through jobs at tech firms or their own businesses, more women are diving into angel investing, where they give startups a cash infusion in exchange for equity.

    According to the Center for Venture Research at the University of New Hampshire, about 18% of angel investors in the U.S. in 2013 were women, down slightly from a high of 21.8% in 2012 but still significantly above the 12.2% the center tallied in 2011.

    Female angel investors on New York City's startup scene say they are no longer an anomaly.

    "I used to get asked when I walked into a pitch room if I was lost," said Angela Lee, founder of 37 Angels, a Manhattan-based investment network for women in Manhattan where half the members are entrepreneurs. "That doesn't happen anymore."

    Given that women entrepreneurs in New York have been unusually successful at fundraising, perhaps it shouldn't be surprising that some want to put what they've learned to work as angels.

    According to 2013 data from research firm CB Insights, the median funding received by all-female teams in New York—who make up 3% of local startup teams—was $4.5 million, compared with $2.2 million for all-women teams across the nation and $2.3 million for local all-male teams.

    Meanwhile, more women-owned firms are going after angel financing. According to the Center for Venture Research, female entrepreneurs made up 16% of founders seeking angel capital in 2013, up from 12% in 2011.

    "Women are becoming increasingly sophisticated in how they seek funding—no question about it," said Loretta McCarthy, a managing partner at Manhattan-based Golden Seeds, an early-stage investment firm, where 80% of the members are women. Golden Seeds, which invests only in companies with at least one woman at the helm, has backed 61 firms in the decade since it started—10 in New York City.

    Of course, the big test for angels who back women-run firms will be their success in picking startups that raise more capital and make lucrative exits. Female entrepreneurs have had a hard time winning venture funding, and some may need coaching to secure it.

    That's a tough question for many business owners -- especially the ones that are busy, making a good living, and have a relatively comfortable lifestyle.
        It's a tough question because they're certainly not suffering -- yet! 

        I say "yet" because as sure as the sun will rise tomorrow morning there will come a day when that busy business owner will want to slow down and separate himself from the day-to-day hassles of running his business.

        I don't see this as a bad problem. It's the way life is. When we're young, we have the energy and drive to do whatever needs to be done. As time goes on, we see that there's more to life than living the same day every day. Continue reading...

    Hi Nancy:

    I would love to, however, I am attending an MCC event at that time. That's Marketing Week and I am signed up to be at an MCC seminar at that time. In fact, there are two seminars at the same time that I'd like to attend, but I only have one body. But, please keep me informed about other IWEC Steering Committee opportunities to participate.

    I also want to tell you how impressed I am with the events at MCC. My husband and I attended the Sunset Mixer last night and we both thought it was fantastic. You are doing an outstanding job.

    I am planning to attend several events during Marketing Week, and am so very glad that I joined MCC and BRG3. I've been telling a lot of professionals to join.

Its goal is to bring the Bayou to the Big Apple by introducing New Yorkers and viewers everywhere, to the excitement and flavor of Cajun and Southern style cooking. Please also see their kind words about MCC below!

    I thought you guys would enjoy this and I look forward to working with the Chamber. The chambers resources have helped us grow and stay inspired to keep moving forward.

    Thanks for all,
    Ken.
