Getting up in the morning and running through your mental to-do list can be the hardest thing you can do to gear up for getting a full day’s work done. The same goes for professionals in every field and this month, Woodinville’s small business owners are tackling what to do about it. On Thursday, August 10, the Woodinville Chamber of Commerce held its monthly networking event, “Building Relationships” at Fairwinds-Brittany Park, where private sector professionals from all around the Puget Sound region met to break bread and study motivation. This month’s breakfast was hosted by business coach Bob Rash, whose philosophy revolves around what he describes as “doing what you know you should do.” A veteran of corporate America of over 32 years working in the IT departments of companies like Stair Master and Totem Ocean Trailer Express, Rash is the CEO of Sound Business Development who make up half of its total staff – the other half is his wife. An attendee of the Woodinville Commerce Chamber’s monthly breakfasts since 2008, Rash first came to meet new faces and expand his connections. This month, he will be hosting the event, delivering his address on “3 Steps to Improve Productivity.”
