Live Mentoring Session on 7/24 for small biz in govt contracting with Amex OPEN Advisor on Teaming

Last year, small businesses received $91.5 billion in government contracts. Landing contracts takes planning, persistence and ingenuity. For many business owners, the road to success comes in the form of subcontracting and/or teaming -- banding together with fellow small business owners to pursue larger prime contracts. According to American Express OPEN’s government contracting survey, three-fourths of small business contractors have had some procurement revenue from subcontracting and teaming, averaging 34% of their procurement revenue.

Pursuing subcontracting and/or teaming can be an excellent way for small businesses to gain procurement experience, expand their networks, improve their chances for contracting success, and obtain additional opportunities. For example, the same survey revealed that nearly one-quarter (22%) of active small firm contractors have accessed additional subcontracting opportunities after being recommended to a large prime contractor by a prime that they had performed successfully for in the past.

On July 24th from 3pm – 4:30pm EST, Denise Rodriguez-Lopez, American Express OPEN Advisor on Teaming, will host a live chat on the American Express OPEN Victory in Procurement group on LinkedIn to guide small businesses on how partnering with another company can give their business the break it needs to surge ahead. This is an exclusive opportunity for business owners to have Denise answer questions LIVE on teaming and subcontracting.

Anyone can join the American Express OPEN Victory In Procurement® (VIP) group on LinkedIn, where members are able to:

·         Post and respond to Teaming needs/opportunities
·         Interact with Teaming experts
·         Learn of upcoming government contracting opportunities (on the “Jobs” tab)
·         Learn about upcoming events

Geeky Collections

In The Big Bang Theory, Leonard and Sheldon had to have the gadget from their favorite 1960's film and nothing completes a geek collection like a time machine.  I am a blogger, therefore I need technology.  My technological collection includes an HP laptop, an iPhone, a Flip camera, a digital camera, a point and shoot camera, and now I am waiting for an SLR camera, ahem a Canon T3I maybe? (hint, hint hubby).   I am sure once I get my SLR camera, I will be looking for more items to add to my blogging collection.

What was your best online geek purchase?  What are you still missing from your collection?

Are You Smart Enough?

In The Big Bang Theory: The Complete First and Second Season on Blu-Ray Combo Pack, Penny and Leonard have a complicated relationship.  Even after going on a date, Penny ends up breaking things off with Leonard fearing she isn't as smart as the physics genius.  Being intimated by intellectuals is actually common in real life.

I have a friend who is an intellectual, we'll call her "Tina".  Not only does she portray confidence when she speaks, she uses big words fluently and effectively.  Oh, and she also throws out those critical questions every once in a while--leaving people to pause and try to interpret the question.  I literally had mutual friends confide and say that they felt intimidated when "Tina" hangs out with us.  They are afraid to appear or sound unintelligent.  Unfortunately, some of our mutual friends stopped hanging out with "Tina".

Have you ever been or felt intimidated by an intellectual?

Guest Post: 7 Ways to Save on Wedding Registry Gifts

Summer is wedding season and this year, no one knows that better than me. I'm in two weddings and attending four more, making my weekends all about dress fittings and bachelorette parties. In addition to traveling around the country -- Florida, California and New York -- I also need to budget for six wedding gift

Andrea Woroch
Gift registries make this part of the process easy, but shipping costs and indecision often contribute to a stressful experience. Consider these seven ways to save on wedding gifts, six of which I'll definitely be using this season.

1. Buy a group gift with friends.
Most of my friends already have the small household items that comprise traditional registries. If this sounds familiar, consider going in on a pricey gift with friends. Not only will you be getting the couple something they really need, but you may end up spending less in the long run. makes it easy to organize the group gift without the hassle of calling around and coordinating payment.

2. Shop discount retailers.
If your friends are registered for Cuisinart pans or Kitchenaid cooking utensils, find them for less at such discount retailers as Ross, Marshall's or HomeGoods. You can also find things like cookbooks, picture frames and bath essentials for a fraction of department store prices.

3. Look for coupons.
Macy's is the go-to registry for most brides, so I was pleased to find a coupon for $20 off $100 worth of registry items on CouponSherpa. Luckily, you don't need registry-specific coupons to save on your purchase, so search the Web before clicking "submit."

4. Frame the wedding invitation.
Brides and the occasional groom spend lots of time and money creating the wedding invitation, only to distribute them to others. Make it into a creative keepsake by framing it. You can even buy a double frame with space for the couple's favorite wedding portrait for an added touch.

5. DIY - literally.
Are you handy, artistic or gastronomic? Consider a gift you can give based on your own business or skills. Paint a painting for their new home, offer your makeup or hair artistry skills to the bride, or bake the wedding cake. Your friend will be grateful for both the thoughtful gift and for cutting down her expenses.

6. Use (or give) discount gift cards.
Gift cards are much appreciated by modern couples and are often found at the bottom of registries. Click here to avoid paying full price for these versatile gifts by comparing discounts on cards to retailers, restaurants and other establishments. If you'd still prefer purchasing a tangible gift from the registry, purchase a discount gift card for yourself to offset the cost.

7. Shop for daily deals.
If you know the person well enough, you can get away with using the registry as inspiration for the right gift at the right price. For example, one of my friends registered for a set of chef knives that I know won't last. That's why I was thrilled to find a great set of premium chef knives for 60-percent off at one of the daily deal sites I'm subscribed to. Check out GrouponLivingSocial or Seize the Deal for daily offers.

Guest Post: Midsummer Savings: What to Buy in July

Andrea Woroch

Thanks to Independence Day, you can find great deals on pretty much everything as retailers clamour to grab your attention away from the barbeque. Still, if you prefer to keep it mellow this Wednesday and avoid the crowds, there's plenty of time for savings later this month.
Consider the following advice and enjoy great savings on everything from fruit to furniture.

1. Replace that couch.
Even Oprah agrees that July is the best time to buy furniture. Thanks to Independence Day and new styles arriving in August, sales floor associates are buzzing to upsell you on that leather recliner. Scout preferred styles before sale time and do your research on the cost so as not to be fooled by inflated prices.

2. Update your lingerie.
Thanks to the Victoria's Secret semi-annual sale, other lingerie retailers attempt to snatch up some of their customers by offering deals on intimates. Benefit from the retailer showdown with great deals, and be sure to check here for the latest online offers from America's favorite lingerie store.

3. Take in a show.
Tourists and uncivilized New Yorkers alike can usually find good deals on Broadway tickets in July, thanks to the opening of new shows in August. Though no one from the Upper East Side would be caught dead in the Theater District midsummer, the peons get the double advantage of cheap tickets and cordial company.

4. Channel your inner James Bond.
Listen up, gents: now's the time to replace that suit you've been wearing for the last ten years. July is a great time to save on lightweight monkeysuits because shops are making room for fall fashion. A well-fitting suit is always an investment, so check outthese snarky-yet-savvy tips from Esquire for selecting the best look.

5. Make a fruit salad.
Summertime is one of the best times to enjoy a multitude of fresh produce, for which you otherwise pay a premium during the rest of the year. Take advantage of the warm weather and hit up your local farmers' market for berries, melons and crisp veggies.

6. Upgrade your dishwasher.
Sales on appliances abound during holidays like the Fourth of July, so now's the time to upgrade that failing dishwasher. In addition to marked-down prices, you can score additional savings with no-interest payment plans. Review offers from multiple stores and see if your preferred retailer will offer a price match.

7. Get out of town.
July represents one of the best times to travel to Las Vegas because it's scorching hot and even the locals would prefer to be elsewhere. Thank goodness for elaborate pools and over-air conditioned casinos. Check for airfare comparisons between popular airlines, and book your flight on a Tuesday afternoon for the best rate.
