Xtreme Beginnings

Last Friday I was pleased to participate in the Xtreme Beginnings Wake County Career Fair.  The main question posed to the high school students for this event was ‘Where do we go from here?’ 

Students from Wakefield HS

Our CPA firm has been an active participate in Wake County Schools for several years and got involved years ago through our membership with the Cary Chamber and their Education Committee.  Elizabeth Cotton, CDC (Career Development Coordinator) for Panther Creek High, invited me to participate in the Xtreme Beginnings Career fair this year, so I took her up on the opportunity.  I’ve helped with the Xtreme Beginnings event in years past doing the mock interviews, but this was my first time having a booth in the Career Expo & Higher Education room.  The room was full of close to 70 different business and career opportunities for the students to visit and explore.  Some of the businesses represented included the following:  Happy Tooth, Raleigh Police Dept, NC DOT, Gregory Poole, Sheraton, CFNC, US Navy, US Marines, Johnson & Wales and many more! 

There were approximately 800 high school students from all over Wake County at this event.  I had several students stop by my booth and I talked to them about entrepreneurship (Bob started our CPA firm in 1995), careers in accounting (CPA for small business or public accounting, auditor, etc.), and also about marketing (my position for our CPA firm).

Smith & Smith, CPA Xtreme Beginnings

I talked with them about what my specific career involves, the post-secondary education required, the job-security of our field, and other relevant career information.  All of the students who attended Xtreme Beginnings were so nice and asked good questions, I was impressed!  I had a nice time meeting Kevin Taylor, CDC for Green Hope High School.  Kevin and I talked about innovative marketing ideas, many of which I have implemented here for Smith & Smith, CPA.  Kevin invited us to participate in the Green Hope Career Fair in late April and we have gladly accepted his invitation.  Overall I was very pleased with the Xtreme Beginnings Wake County Career Fair and I look forward to participating on behalf of Smith & Smith, CPA next year and at future school events.

Reverse Car Raffle…Cary Chamber Throws a FIAT FIESTA in 2012

Cary Chamber Friends

Wow…still trying to figure out where in the world this week has gone!  Here it is nearly Firday afternoon and I haven’t had a chance to blog all week!  It is crazy-busy around here with tax season going full-force, but a GOOD crazy-busy.  Just crazy. And busy. Stop by and say hello, you will see what I mean!

     We did slip out last Thursday night to attend the Cary Chamber of Commerce  2012 reverse Car raffle and Auction…theme was “A Fiat Fiesta” as the car up for grabs in  the reverse car raffle was a 2012 Ford Fiat 500C.  Cute little car and a convertible at that!  Sponsors for the event were Hendrick Cary Auto Mall, Prestonwood Country Club, Trisure and Jim K. Wyatt, CPA.

Chamber Staff

  The event was held in the grand ballroom at Preston and it was a packed house, as always!  We had a nice crowd from our office and a handful of other friends that we had invited.  With your purchase of a $100 car raffle ticket you could get in 2 people to the event, plus Smith & Smith, CPA had donated several auction items, so that gave us a couple more tickets into the event.  The Master of Ceremonies was Steve Zaytoun and Reverse Car Raffle Coordinator was Steve Denning.  They sold about 355 of the 500 available reverse Car raffle tickets, so your odds of winning were pretty good.  We had about 5 tickets in the pot among our group of friends.  We had one ticket get down to the final 13 and another ticket to the final 8, but sadly, no car winner among our group. 

Reverse Car Raffle Friends

The way the game works is the last ticket drawn wins the car…that or you get your ticket bought out by another ticket holder or by the dealership.  Not sure of exactly what happened in the end results (I was too busy already walking around and collecting my silent auction winning items) but there was $5,000 and some trading/bargaining involved in the end. The Cary Chamber Ambassadors had worked hard for MONTHS to collect over 400 items for the silent auction. Talk about a lot of great items up for grabs!  There were bidding tables all around the room and the items were divided into the following categories: Eats & Treats, Relax in Comfort & Health/Fitness, Entertainment & The Sporting Life, Business Bonuses, Super Services, Not for Kids Only, Treasures, and Et. Al.

Canes Game Live Auction Package

  I walked away at the end of the night with about 10 silent auction wins (Blake says it’s not a ‘win’ because we paid for them, but I regard them as a win).  I ‘won’ everything from a large bouquet of flowers to local boutique gift cards.  This event is the major fundraiser for the Cary Chamber and all proceeds go to supporting the chambers continued success and programs throughout the year.  If you missed Cary Chamber reverse Car raffle & Auction, such a shame, but hope you can join us next year!

Chicken and a Pig…A Cool Marketing Opportunity
 
I love to find a unique and cool marketing opportunity, especially one that involves the community and kids!  Our family has been a regular visitor to the Chick-fil-a at Waverly Place in Cary, NC  for well over a year now. 

A cool marketing opportunity with Chick-fil-a

They have “Family Night” on Tuesday nights, where a local business sponsors a kid-craft or activity for the evening and it’s a free opportunity for everyone to participate.  Diane Curfman, Sales Manager and Deidre Lopez, Marketing Director, are a wonderful part of this Chick-fil-a marketing/promotion team and work together to make sure that each Tuesday night is a fun experience for all.  I was able to get Smith & Smith, CPA on the schedule for Tuesday, February 28, 2012 as the Family Night business sponsor.  I wanted to be able to take full advantage of this cool marketing opportunity, so I started working weeks in advance.  I wanted our craft to be kid-friendly and fairly easy for all ages, but also wanted it to be a piece that the kids would keep for a long time and enjoy.  I also wanted to somehow tie-in our CPA firm and financial theme.  So I thought hand painted ceramic piggy banks would be a great idea!  I was lucky enough to find a good deal on ceramic piggy banks from Oriental Trading Company and they all arrived unbroken and in perfect condition.  I printed round-label stickers with our name & phone number and those went on the bottom of the piggy banks on the money stopper.

Kids painting piggys!

  The Family Night is from 5:30pm-7:30pm.  I arrived shortly after 5:00pm to set-up and I had a table full of kids ready to paint at 5:15pm!  I had posted the news of this cool marketing opportunity on my some of our social media outlets, so I was pleased to have some of my friends bring their kids by to paint (thanks Shelly and Heather!!)  I was also pleasantly surprised to see one of our business clients there with her family, April SchweitzerArtistic Director of Graceful Expressions Dance Education.  April’s kids were excellent little painters and were very happy of their cute creations.  I connected April with Deidre as the Chick-fil-a Family Night is a cool marketing opportunity and I could really see Graceful Expressions being the sponsor one night.

Kids & Piggy Banks

 I also had a chance to see a business referral friend that I hadn’t seen in years.  Justin Vahrenburg, Small Business Sales & Sales Consultant, for Verizon Wireless, was there for dinner with his lovely wife and their two children.  Justin and I met years ago through a Business Network International (BNI) referral group.  I also had the opportunity to talk with several other families throughout the evening, some of which were fellow ECU Alumni Pirates!  YEA! I can’t say enough positive things about this cool marketing opportunity!  It is wonderful for small business owners as well as non-profit groups.  My rotary club, Cary-Kildaire Rotary, sponsored a night last year and will be sponsoring again on May 1st.  Thank you Chick-fil-a!

Piggy Bank Painting

Hard to believe that today is the last day of February 2012, and it is also LEAP DAY!  We are down to just about 2 weeks to go before corporate tax returns are due and about 47 days left to file your personal return (or get an extension  completed).  .  Smith & Smith, CPA in Cary is never too busy to help a small business owner with their accounting/tax needs.  We welcome referrals!  Please note that the months of Jan-April 2012 will be very busy around here and we’ll be working 7-days a week with 12-15+hour days to get everyone taken care of in a timely manner.  Please get your 2011 taxes in as soon as you can.  I’d also love to have a few new reviews posted for us under the name business name, Smith & Smith, CPA on Google.  Please click HERE to write a review (click the RED box that says “Write a Review“)  Thanks so much!   Visit our website: http://www.smithandsmithcpa.com/ for more information.

Hand & Stone Massage in Raleigh

Massage in Raleigh

I was traveling through North Raleigh last week and decided to stop by and visit with one of our business clients.  I’m not in that area very much, so this was a rare treat for me.  I went by to visit with Chris Parks, the owner of Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa, the best place to get a massage in Raleigh!  Chris was referred to Smith & Smith, CPA in Cary in 2011 when he was looking to open the spa and we formed a good business relationship (those referral partners are so important!!)  Hand & Stone Massage in Raleigh is located in the Falls Village Shopping Center and the location is ideal with lots of parking and easy in & out.  Chris gave me a tour of the new facility and it is very beautiful inside.  I instantly felt calm and relaxed, a nice change of pace from the busy-busy-go-go of life! They have several private massage and facial rooms as well as a couples massage room (nice treat for those looking to spend some quality relaxing time with a loved one).  Chris is very proud of his business and it shows with the caring staff he has hired and their attention to detail with each client. 

Hand & Stone Massage in Raleigh

Their massage services are provided by North Carolina licensed massage and body work therapists.  They offer a one-hour massage starting at $49.95, hot stone massage at $69.95 and signature facial (my favorite) at $49.95.  One really cool thing about their website is the tool that says “Which Massage Facial is Right for You”, it takes you to a list of the services offered and does a short description, that way you can really find that one that will make you feel & look your best!  Looking for a great massage in Raleigh…check out Hand & Stone!

Heart Month for Cary Chamber Business of Women

Autumn & Dr. Balaravi for Heart Month

February is known as being “Heart Month” so the Cary Chamber of Commerce invited Dr. Bhavani Balaravi, MD, F.A.C.C. of Raleigh Cardiology to be the guest speaker for their February Business of Women Luncheon. Dr. Balaravi presented a nice slideshow of helpful heart month information to the ladies in the room and educated us on the factors/risks/prevention of heart disease. She is board certified in nuclear cardiology and completed advanced fellowships in nuclear cardiology and cardiac imaging (MRI & CT) at the Mayo Clinic. I sat with a nice table of ladies: Tamara Guilford, RN of 3HC, Suzan McCann and Jennifer McNeil of The Mannor Village, Autumn LaBarca of Doctors Express Urgent Care and my newest friend, Donna Cook, Executive Director of Heartfields Assisted Living at Cary. The Cary Chamber Business of Women is a monthly luncheon hosted at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary, NC.

Triangle Ladies Power Lunch

The Triangle Ladies Power Lunch was full of purple, purple and more purple for the month of February!  The award-winning businesswoman speaker, Olalah Njenga, spoke on February 15, 2012 to a room full of friends, colleagues and successful professional women.  Olalah’s presence helped to pack the meeting room at North Ridge Country Club in Raleigh, as we were all anxious to hear her speak on her message called “The Power of One”.  Olalah shared some touching life-stories that have happened between her and her daughter over the years.  She stressed the importance of being able to accept the truth from others and being ‘kind to your future self’

Olalah and Becca

I really enjoyed hearing Olalah speak, she looked so lovely in her purple dress and her energy from the podium was contagious.  Olalah is part of the YellowWood Group and is based out of Raleigh, NC.

 The shopping hour, which is a vital part of the Triangle Ladies Power Lunch, was full of fascinating vendors, everything a lady could want from jewelry to purses, wine and nutrition supplements.  There was also a nice variation of business services including banking, promotional products and of course, accounting/tax (Smith & Smith, CPA of Cary!)  Our CPA firm has been a sponsor of this lunch from nearly the beginning and we see so much value and opportunity each month through our participation.

Olalah, Leslie and Alice

We missed Carrie Peele this month (she was attending a national limo convention) but our dear and wonderful friend, Deborah Meehan, ran things smoothly from the podium.  Our VIP table was full of wonderful ladies: Dena Morris of Dena’s Jewelry Box, Christine Hall of CMH College Consulting, Rhonda Tweedy of Duff’s Design and Landscaping, Sherie Samstag-Bryan of New York Life, and Kathleen Volandt of Auroros.  I also enjoyed seeing several other fabulous ladies during the shopping hour and after the luncheon.  March 21st is the next TLPL with Beth Wood, State Auditor for North Carolina!.

Raleigh Wrought Iron and Silvia Salon

Custom Fence

We love to celebrate with our clients when they have new and exciting things happening in their business!  I’d like to highlight two clients (who happen to be married) and promote their recent success!  The first is Raleigh Wrought Iron and Fence Co.  The owner is Stelian Popa and he is a true master of his trade!  Stelian is originally from Romania and is a blacksmith-fabricator by trade. 

Custom Wine Rack

His work is phenomenal!  He can literally built/create ANYTHING for his clients with iron & steel.  His artistic designs are unlimited and everything is done to the highest standard.  Stelian creates custom wrought iron railings, gates, balconies, fences and custom wrought iron art (wine racks, security bars, ornamental mail boxes, window baskets, baker racks, iron furniture, etc.)  The possibilities are unlimited!  What I like best about Stelian is that he has taken his talent full force into the social media world! 

Iron Curtain

Raleigh Wrought Iron is on Facebook and he has TONS of videos on Youtube!  The Youtube videos are great as they really capture all of the quality and talent that Stelian puts into his work.  Some of his videos have close to 10,000 views!  (See the one below).  Stelian has been  a business owner for over 15 years. 

 

Stelian’s wife, Silvia, of Silvia Hair Designs, has been a client for many years and recently moved her salon to a new location in Cary.  I am a regular client of Silvia’s (LOVE going to see her!!!) and her new space looks great!  She is located at 1151 Kildaire Farm Road, Suite 116 (right down from her previous location, across form Goodberry’s Ice Cream, Hibernian Pub and Carrabba’s Italian Grill).

Silvia Salon

  Her new salon space is nice and clean, open and airy and gives her plenty of room to grow and nice privacy for her clients.  Siliva keeps up-to-date on the newest trends/styles/treatments for hair care and attends hair shows all across the country.  She offers the Keratin Complex treatment at her salon, along with the exclusive line of L’Anza products and the Featherlocks feather hair extensions

Blood and Hockey

VIP Blood Donor

Cam is a regular blood donor for the American Red Cross here in Cary.  They have him on a schedule for donating and he goes every 6-8 weeks.  Cam has been a regular donor for several years now and recently received a nice package in the mail from the ARC.  Inside was a nice blue t-shirt that says HERO on the front, and included a shirt pin and a nice ink pen (since we are a CPA office, we always love to find a good pen that writes smooth and this one is a keeper!)  The package recognized Cam as being a VIP blood donor.  Because of Cam’s work & study schedule, he doesn’t get to attend very many community events, so being a loyal blood donor is one of his ways of contributing to our community.  Nice work Cam! 

I am always pleasantly surprised as how life can create your path to cross with others and then it turns out you had a common thread all along!  This recently happened to me with two work friends, both of which have the lovely name of Sarah. 

Canes game

Sarah, Sarah & Becca at the Canes Hockey Game

My high school best friend, Jessica Lang, attended college at UNC and roomed with a sweet girl named Sarah Cooper.  Years later Sarah was starting a pet photography business (how cool is that!?!? And she is very good at her work! Click HERE for her website) and she was looking for a CPA firm, so Jessica recommended us (Smith & Smith, CPA).  I liked Sarah Cooper instantly and she’s been a client for about a year or so now.   Now here is how the other Sarah, Sarah Thacker (owner of  Thacker Law Firm) comes into play.  Our CPA firm is a sponsor for a well known ladies networking luncheon (Triangle Ladies Power Lunch) and as a Corporate Sponsor, I get to put a marketing item into the goodie bags each month.  Last year I included a magnet in the goodie bags. Sarah Thacker was at one of the lunches and put the magnet on her fridge at work.  Later on, she was getting some pet photographs made by Sarah Cooper (of her sweet doggies) and that is then that Sarah Cooper noticed the magnet on Thacker’s fridge and exclaimed that we were her CPA.  From there, I was introduced to Thacker and the rest is friendship history!  Sarah is an excellent attorney and we’ve shared many client referrals over the past year.  I recently attended a Carolina Hurricanes Hockey game with the ‘Sarahs’ and we had a wonderful time!  I love how life can make paths cross in the most unique ways!

Little Visitors for Cary Rotary Chili Luncheon

We love to support local charities and causes, especially when there is food involved!  

Connor & Bailey visit for lunch

The Cary Rotary Club held their 9th Annual Chili Dinner (and luncheon) last week so we ordered several take-out meals to enjoy here at our office. I waited until the monsoon of rain cleared and went over to Kirk of Kildaire Presbyterian Church to pick up the food. It was really good!  Each plate had a bowl of chili, a bowl of pasta salad and a nice slice of corn bread.  Cam’s wife, Brooke, and their two little tots, Connor and Bailey, joined us at the office for lunch.  Connor loved the cornbread best and good thing too because of all the food boxes his slice of cornbread was the biggest!  Brooke & the kids enjoy the flexibility of our family office and come by a few times a week to have lunch with Cam.  The Cary Rotary Club 9th Annual Chili Dinner is a fundraiser that supports Hunger Relief locally and internationally.  Meal tickets were $7.50/each and they offered 4 levels of sponsorships.  They have raised over $199,000 in the last 8 years!  Don’t miss this event next year!
