The Lunch and Learn takes place from 11:30-a.m. to 1:00-p.m., and is open to Chamber members, and non-members alike. Guest speaker is Bob Clements, a business coach from the E-Myth business

 development system. The philosophy behind E-Myth focuses on designing businesses the work for the owner. The program has been in existence for more than 30-years, and the seminar is based on a best selling book detailing why most small businesses don’t work, and what to do about it.

Clements, a trained and certified Senior E-Myth Coach, has served as a practicing business attorney, bank counsel, Chamber of Commerce president, and consultant. The seminar, and Clements’ presentation, will ask business owners to question everything they think they know about business, to consider that their experience may be their worst teacher instead of the best, and to ponder what they have been doing incorrectly that repeatedly produces the same results.

Tickets for the seminar and lunch are $20 for Chamber members, or $30 for non-members. They’re available from the Atlantic Area Chamber of Commerce. Persons interested in attending should make their reservations by no later than this Friday, October 7th. To do so, call 712-243-3017, or e-mail Nicky Christensen at
