Note:  At the conclusion of this recent event, we were urged for counsel on how to protect assets in the face of personal guarantees. We’ll address this subject again at some point in the future, but in the meantime please consider RSVP’ing for our December 1st Small Business Saturday Workshop, where we’ll be spending some of our time with Attorney Jonathan Beck as he discusses this very topic. Seating is limited to only eight (8) attendees. CLICK HERE to register, thanks!

Erin & ChristineChristine Bierman founded Colt Safety in 1980, and since that time has won numerous small business awards and earned a multitude of prestigious appointments on the boards of distinguished associations, both local and nationwide. Christine’s personal mission is to be a positive resource to family, friends and staff, and she measures success by “the lives we touch, the lives we change and those we see smile on our journey.”

Christine joined us in November 2012 to discuss the lessons learned and steps taken to bring her company back from the brink of disaster, including:

  • If she could do it all over again…what she’d do differently
  • The do’s and don’ts of the banking relationship, learned the hard way
  • The secrets of rebuilding so quickly after such a devastating blow
  • And to lighten it up, plus get you thinking outside the box as to what’s possible in life/work balance–some stories from the high life, traveling in a RV up and down the Californinia coast, doing business with the government by day and grilling with family by the ocean at night

Video is forthcoming…in the meantime, check out photos from the event below!
