Serving with Life Experiences

Today wraps up the end of my year serving Life Experiences as the President for the Board of Directors.  It has been such a fantastic experience and one that I took very seriously.  I have been involved with Life Experiences for many years now and will continue to serve another 3-year term on the Board.   I am so grateful for this special group of people and for all of the friendships I have made along the way.  Thank you to the Board members who served with me this past year and we have another big year ahead of us!   Part of my heart will always be and belong at Life Experiences!

Cary Chamber Eye Opener Breakfast Candidate Forum

ccc-eob-sept-2

Table ready for “Speed Dating” with the NC Candidates

The Cary Chamber of Commerce used their September Eye Opener Breakfast as an opportunity to host a candidate forum for those running for office in the NC House and NC Senate.  Candidates were there to represent Districts 16 & 17 (NC Senate) and Districts 11, 36 & 41 (NC House).  The breakfast was held at Prestonwood Country Club and took place from 7:30AM-9:00AM with over 100 people in attendance.  The candidates were asked to introduce themselves from the podium and give a brief 2-mintue overview of their campaign.  Once that was complete, they went from table to table in a “speed dating” style.  I really liked this format as it gave the attendees a much better opportunity to be involved and included in the conversations.  We were encouraged to ask them questions at our tables and hear their direct feedback.  I have been to the Candidate Forum before where each one is asked the same question and given the same amount of time to reply.  I REALLY liked the “speed dating style” much better and I hope the Cary Chamber will continue with this style at the other upcoming candidate forums.  The Cary Chamber will be hosting several other forums in the month of October, check out the dates & times on their website and make plans to attend!

Meet the Candidates

I was happy to see and support Duane Hall, long-time friend and client of Smith & Smith, CPA at the forum.  Duane is an attorney in Raleigh and represents NC House District 11.

Tax Day 2016 Has Come and GONE!

So here we are on April 19th…the day ‘officially’ known to us as the DAY-AFTER-TAX-DAY!  We made it!  Lots of LONG, LONG, LONG hours and LONG, LONG, LONG weekends, but clients are happy (the ones with refunds), taxes are files, extensions are extended and the phones are a little bit quiet (for the most part).  That’s a Happy Day-After-Tax-Day if you ask me!  But there is still plenty of work to get done!  And I’m happy to return to a more ‘normal’ schedule of blogging!  I have several events to catch-up on…trust me, I will!  But here are some pictures to share from around the office…

Pizza Goes Well with Tax Time!

How did we make it through those final few days of filing (we had 4 extra days this year too thanks to Leap Day and Emancipation Day)..with lots and lots of PIZZA!!!!!!!!!!!!

tax paper boxes

Cam is restocking all of our paper and other office supplies…just imagine how heavy all of those paper boxes are!!?!!  Did he build up some muscles typing in all of those tax returns for 3 1/2 months or what!?!?!

tax paper boxes 2

Opps!  Watch out Blake!  Long hours (15+), lack of sleep and a big stack of boxes can make for a dangerous meeting! (Blake is okay…photo was staged of course).

On behalf of Smith & Smith, CPA…we would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to all of our awesome and wonderful clients!  It is a pleasure working with you all, many of which we only get to see once or twice a year!  We truly appreciate your business!

Tax Class for 2016 and Let’s Party for Christmas!

Tax Class Seminar

Tax Class Seminar

You would probably not think that Tax Classes and Christmas Parties go hand-in-hand, but around here they kind of do.   You see, each year, the CPA’s and accountants in our office have to go through tax classes and earn CPE Credits to keep their license to practice tax.  The guys at Smith & Smith, CPA take a 2-day course in Greensboro that is put on by the Don Farmer Tax Seminar.  Now I know that sounds REALLY exciting and you are jealous that you can’t go!  So all joking aside, it is a really good course, they learn all about the new tax laws and changes and come back with their heads spinning on the new info!  Alicia is also taking her tax classes this week, but she stays close to home and completes her courses in Raleigh.  The guys are out of town in Greensboro for their big seminar.

Life Experiences Christmas Party

Life Experiences with Rotary Friends

Life Experiences with Rotary Friends

Earlier this week we had the Life Experiences Christmas Party.  It really is the BEST party of the year!  I’m proud to serve on the Board at Life Experiences and their Christmas party is a time when all of the clients, staff, Board, and families can come together to share a pot luck meal, meet each other, sing songs, and best of all, open gifts!  They each trade names and bring a special present for each other.  The clients also get a brand new Life Experiences t-shirt, something that they LOVE and truly Cherish.

Full House for the Party

Full House for the Party

Each year, one of the clients gets to dress up as Santa Clause and give out all of the gifts.  Mary Madenspacher, Executive Director for Life Experiences, also takes the microphone around to each one and let’s them say their name, introduce their families and say really whatever they want.  It’s a hoot as you never really know what is going to be said!  We had a great time at the party and I’m so proud to have many of my fellow Rotarians from the Cary-Kildaire Rotary Club there with me!  Thanks to My Girlfriend’s Closet for the beautiful black and white polka-dot dress.

Union Bank Christmas Party

Friends of Union Bank

Friends of Union Bank

Union Bank also had their Christmas Party this week.  My good friends, Jessica Register and Julie Clark, work for Union Bank and were kind to invite me to their office party.  Union Bank hosted their 2015 Wake County Christmas Open House at their Cary location, 111 Commonwealth Court, and had a huge crowd of clients, friends, Chamber members, Rotarians, and community leaders in attendance.  Jessica and I have been friends for several years now and have been on the Cary Chamber Membership Drive Rewards Trip together for the past 2 years!

Shop Local!

Shop Local!

Jessica and I both LOVE to shop and we LOVE consignment stores because you can find the best deals without having to pay a ton of $$$$.   Don’t we both look holiday-cute!?!  I’m wearing a black and white stripped sweater (it has some shine to it) from My Girlfriend’s Closet (stores in downtown Cary and downtown Apex).  I could have worn it with a black skirt, but I think the red makes it much more festive and styled for the holidays!  Jessica is wearing a black and white sweater too, her’s has some sequence sewn it, is hard to see in the picture, but in person it was very pretty and had a lot of texture and sparkle.  Jessica got her sweater from Classic Clothiers Consignment Boutique in Cary.  Her shoes (cute wedges) were from My Girlfriend’s Closet.  Why shop at the high dollar stores when you can shop local and get great deals!

Bass Pro Santa Shout-Out

And finally, I have to do a Christmas Shout-Out to my work friends…we meet once a month for lunch.  Earlier this week we had our December Christmas Holiday Lunch at Rally Point in Cary.   We have done different Christmas gifts and exchange parties over the years…this year we decided to do a Christmas Wrapping Paper Exchange!   Everyone brought 2 rolls of wrapping paper (or 3 gift bags) and we put them down inside of a black trash bag.  We then drew numbers and took turns grabbing gift wrap out of the bag, OR, you could steal the gift wrap from someone else.  Apparently the Snowman gift wrap is VERY popular among my friends!

All I want for Christmas

After lunch, we went over to Bass Pro Shop in Cary and had our group picture made with Santa Clause.  I mean, how much fun is that !?!?!   I love Bass Pro Shop, even though I don’t hunt and I only fish with my parents.   They have all kinds of cool things in their store!  Plus I got to ride a 4-wheeler out front (well, not really, but I did pretend).  And one final THANKS to My Girlfriend’s Closet for dressing me in this gorgeous Lilly Pulitzer Blayney Ruffle Dress.  The weather has been SO WARM this week,  I knew this colorful dress would be perfect!   Shop at My Girlfriend’s Closet and mention Beccasblog.com to get 10% off your Total Purchase!

ALSO, please remember to VOTE for our Smith & Smith, CPA tree as part of the Town of Cary Gifting Tree Project!!!  Voting goes until Saturday December 19th!  Winners gets $500 to the Charity of their Choice and ours would go to Life Experiences!

Growing Your Business Referrals

Carrie, Becca & Kim

Carrie, Becca & Kim

Earlier this week I had the pleasure of attending a presentation for Professional Working Women called “Grow Your Business: Referral Request Seminar”.  The event was hosted by Carrie Peele and featured guest speaker, Mary Cantando, Founder, of The Woman’s Advantage.  Carrie is the newly appointed Chair for the Triangle Chapter of The Woman’s Advantage and hosted her first event at the PNC Boardroom in Raleigh.  So many women business owners & working professionals struggle waiting for referrals to happen by “word of mouth”.  This seminar taught us how to stop waiting for them to happen and how to instead, MAKE the them happen!   Carrie and Mary also presented the opportunity to learn more about the Women’s Advantage Program and how ladies can sign-up to get involved.  I really enjoyed the class and was happy to have my friend & fellow ShopLocalRaleigh member, Kim Davis of The Paystub People along with me.   Kim and I worked as partners during the class and had a chance to share several times when Mary called on volunteers.   I can’t wait to take what I learned from this class and aplly it to my job as Director of Marketing at Smith & Smith, CPA.   WA-logo-PDF

Thanks to Carrie for the invite!  Please feel free to contact her to learn more!  Also a shout-out to Lois Cozart of My Girlfriend’s Closet for dressing me in the colorful Joy Joy summer dress!   Who said you can’t wear horizontal stripes!?!?!  Shop My Girlfriends Closet in downtown Apex and downtown Cary (MGC Oh-la-la) for great summer fashions & savings! Tell them you read Beccasblog.com to get 10% off your purchase!

Check out my office for the next week!  YEA!!!!  See you July 27th!

A Blog All About the M’s!

My Girlfriend's Closet UpCycle Your Wardrobe

My Girlfriend’s Closet UpCycle Your Wardrobe

This week has been CRAZY and I haven’t had a chance to really blog and get some things posted.  So I’m going to try to cover it ALL in one big Friday the 13th Post!  Last week on Feb 5th there was a great event called UpCycle Your Wardrobe, hosted by none-other then My Girlfriend’s Closet in downtown Apex.  MGC continues to be one of my MOST FAVORITE places to shop and while I wasn’t able to attend this event due to a conflict with another event, (will tell you about shortly), I did have several friends that went and they had a great time!  My good friend, Jessica Register, of Union Bank, went to the event and had a lot of success cleaning out her closet and jump starting her spring wardrobe!  Here is a cute picture of her with store owner, Lois Cozart.  They plan to do more events like this and I’ll do my absolute best to make the next one!

The Golden Gates Dancers

The Golden Gates Dancers

While my friends were at MGC to UpCycle their Wardrobes, I was at my Thursday night Cary-Kildaire Rotary Club meeting.  We had a fabulous program last week that featured student exchange students from Russia, Georgia and the Ukraine.  They are part of a traveling entertainment/dancing group called The Golden Gates.  They entertained our Rotary Club with lots of cultural dance and costumes.  It was a very unique program and was enjoyed by all of our members and guests.

Last Friday night was an event that Blake & I look forward to each year….Mardi Gras!   This year the event was hosted on Friday night (used to be on Fat Tuesday), and it drew a great crowd as usual.  Lots of food from local restaurants, a local brewery and tons of great gifts to bid on in the silent and live auction.  The live band was The Back of the Boat and they had people dancing all night long!   The Mardi Gras Kick-Off Event serves as a fundraiser for both Life Experience and Cary-MacGregor Rotary Club & their programs and projects during the year.

And last but not least, Smith & Smith, CPA is a proud sponsor of a local MOPS group.  One of our clients (and a personal friend of mine) Tayloire Queen, asked me to consider sponsorship and it sounded like a great opportunity for us.  The MOPS group meets at First United Methodist Church in downtown Cary.   MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers and they have groups all around the country.  This morning I was invited to join the group and do a brief presentation to them on the services offered by Smith & Smith, CPA.  I’m a big sucker for Valentine’s Day, so I made 30 gift bags for each of the ladies with all kinds of goodies, chocolates and candies.

Sugar Scrub from MOPS

Plus each bag included on our Smith & Smith, CPA HOT & COLD STRESS RELIEVER!  Very cool!   I spent a few minutes talking to the ladies about Smith & Smith, CPA and gave them a few tips & pointers to remember during tax season.  They gave me a very nice jar of Scrub-A-Dub Brown Sugar Scrub as a sweet thank you gift!!  I love sugar scrub so that was a perfect gift!   Thank you to Tayloire for the nice introduction to the MOPS group!  Tayloire is a Senior Creative Leader for Initials, Inc and recently earned a trip to Cancun through her company!  Way to go Tayloire!  Have a great time!

Michael Kors dress for Mardi Gras!

Michael Kors dress for Mardi Gras!

Many thanks to my dear friend, Lois Cozart.  I mentioned her earlier in the email, but wanted to give her another shout-out.  Lois has been dressing me for my networking events & socials for over 2-years now with items from her My Girlfriend’s Closet stores in downtown Cary and downtown Apex.  She dressed me in the Kate Spade sweater dress (seen in the photo with the Russian dance girls, as well as the Michael Kors Sequence Gold Wrap Dress for the Mardi Gras event.)  She knows style and know how to dress every woman with any type of body and style!  THANK YOU SO MUCH LOIS for this amazing marketing/promotion business relationship!

It is time to start thinking about filing those 2014 tax returns!  Smith & Smith, CPA would be glad to help, please give our office a call for a price quote and drop-off appointment.  Our CPA firm in Cary is growing and we are currently welcoming new clients.  Please check out our website for more information http://www.smithandsmithcpa.com  We are never too busy to help a small business owner with their accounting/tax needs.  We welcome referrals!

A Special Night with the Cary Chamber Awards 2014

Jennifer Robinson, Citizen of the Year 2014

Jennifer Robinson, Citizen of the Year 2014

Last night was the 2014 Cary Chamber Annual Awards Banquet.  It is an event that I look forward to attending each year and never miss!  Last night was the 52nd Annual Banquet and it was held at Prestonwood Country Club.  The evening began with a cocktail & social hour, such a fun time for Chamber members to mix and network together!  The event was SOLD OUT again, just like last year!  The keynote speaker was Sharon Decker, North Carolina Department of Commerce Secretary.  I had the pleasure of hearing Mrs. Decker speak earlier this year to the Triangle Ladies Power Lunch so I was very excited to get to hear her speak again, she has such charm and charisma!

This was my last event to serve on the Cary Chamber Board of Directors and I was honored to hand out the Ambassador of the Year Award.  This award is so special as it is voted on by the fellow Cary Chamber Ambassadors and really recognizes a person who has worked hard and given so much of their time and energy to the Cary Chamber events.   The 2014 Ambassador of the Year Award for the Cary Chamber was presented to Brad Simmons, of Allen Tate Realtors at SearstoneCongrats Brad!  Several other specials award were given out during the evening, including Business of the Year to The Umstead Hotel (congrats to my friend Carrie who works there) and also Citizen of the Year, Cary Town Council Member, Jennifer Robinson!

There was a surprise special recognition award presented by Brian Reid at the end of the evening to the 3 guys who started the FIRST Rotary Club in Cary 50 years ago!  I loved seeing Dick, Ralph and Jerry come to the stage and hear them all three speak briefly about Rotary in Cary and how it got started and how much it has GROWN and FLOURISHED in Cary in 50 years!  We’ve been celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Rotary in Cary since August 1st and the celebration continues!  At the end of the evening, Frank Shell, Chair of the Board of the Directors for the 2013-2014 year passed the gravel to the Incoming Chair, David Booth of Wells Fargo Bank.  Frank also called up the members of the Class of 2011-2014 Cary Chamber Board of Directors who were ending their term and presented each one of them with a Jerry Miller framed sketch of the Cary Chamber grounds.  I was part of this retiring class and I’ve already got my frame hanging proudly in my office!

Rotary in Cary for 50 years!

Many thanks to the Cary Chamber staff for ALL of the hard work they do for the Cary Community!  Cary would NOT be what it is today without such a thriving and active Chamber of Commerce!  Thank you also to Lois Cozart, owner of My Girlfriend’s Closet, for dressing me in the long red one-shoulder dress for the event last night. I had a lot of compliments on the dress and encourage everyone to shop LOCAL, especially with other Cary Chamber members like My Girlfriend’s Closet!   MGC is having their PRIVATE Summer Clearance SALE this Sunday, September 7th at the downtown Cary location from 2:00pm – 5:00pm.  All Summer Clearance Fashions will be marked $1.00 to $10.00!  They will also be offering 10% off the entire store which features their NEW Fall season merchandise!  And remember to stop by their other store downtown Cary, MGC-Ooh La La and get 15% off all furniture now through Sunday September 6th.  Please mention that you read about the SUMMER CLEARANCE SALE in Beccasblog.com!

Chamber Board to Chamber Ambassador

Today was a bitter sweet day for me…this morning was my final Board Meeting with the Cary Chamber of Commerce.  I’ve had the pleasure the past three years to serve on the Board of Directors and the last two years as Vice Chair for Member Business Services.  It was such a honor to be asked to serve the three year term and it’s gone so fast!

Lunch at Ruckus with Julie and Twila

Lunch at Ruckus with Cary Chamber Ambassador Friends Julie and Twila

I’ve had a wonderful time, made some great business friends and connections and I am really going to miss it!  However, I am now free to return to serving the Cary Chamber as an Ambassador, a repeating beginning for me, as I served before as an Ambassador for about 5 years before my term on the Board.  Both of these groups are SO important to the Cary Chamber and really make it ones of the BEST (and most FUN) Chambers in Wake County!  Once a month the Cary Chamber Ambassadors get together for lunch at a local Chamber member restaurant.  Today we had a group of about 15 for lunch at Ruckus Pizza & Pasta.  It was a ‘toasty’ August day, but we had lunch outside on the patio and I enjoyed sitting with Julie Clark (TrustAtlantic Bank) and Twila Wilt (Jim Wyatt, CPA).  Thanks to Ed Twardy and Tripp Brizendine for setting up the lunch arrangements!  So cheers to Sweet Endings on the Cary Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and Happy Repeat Beginnings to returning as a Cary Chamber Ambassador!

Lunch was hosted and sponsored by RunDisney.  And yes….guess who was here!!?!  Mickey Mouse himself!  The RunDisney lunch sponsor spoke on the importance of using different social media platforms to get your message across.  One example was their upcoming Star Wars Marathon Race in January 2015.  RunDisney used several different social media platforms over a series of a few hours to announce the race (Twitter, Instagram video, Facebook post) and the race sold out within a few hours!   All very good info to know and use!  Thanks to Sarah Canney of www.runfargirl.com and her friend Jes D’Avanza from Runladylike.com for letting me join in with them on the RunDisney Mickey Mouse picture!

Let’s Have FUN..and GOLF too!  Ladies Golf Tournament

Smith & Smith, CPA proud sponsor

Smith & Smith, CPA proud sponsor

When the weather is bad for the day of a scheduled golf tourney, what do you DO!?!?  Well, if you work at the Cary Chamber of Commerce, you simply MOVE the DATE to a BETTER WEATHER DAY!  And that is exactly what happened this year with the Cary Chamber Fore Ladies Golf Tournament.  The event was scheduled for the last week of April, but with a very serious severe weather threat on the way, they made the decision to change the date and push it back a week.  It worked and we had BEAUTIFUL weather with partly cloudy skies and mid-80 temperatures.  Smith & Smith, CPA was proud to be a sponsor for the ladies golf tournament and all of the volunteer t-shirts had our company name on them (plus they were PINK!)  Alicia and I were there to help with the ladies golf tournament events, Alica worked the Putting Green Competition and I drove the all-so-famous Beverage Cart with Nancy from Atlantic Tire.

Cary Chamber Ladies Golf Tournament

We had a really nice time driving the course and watching the ladies play while chatting with them along the way.  Alicia had a very beautiful set of jewelry from  J.M. Edwards Jewelry that was the prize for the Putting Green Contest, sadly, none of the ladies won.  The ladies golf tournament was held at Lochmere Golf Club and they treat us so well!   After the event there was a huge party upstairs on the patio with food from Catering Works and tons of prizes, plus corn hole tournament sponsored by Sally Cox State Farm.  Thanks so much to all of the ladies who came out to play and for spending the day with the Cary Chamber on the golf course.  Thanks also to the Cary Chamber staff for making this event possible and for all of their hard work and dedication to the ladies in our community.
