We’re pleased to share with you The Tampa Bay Business Journal’s July issue. It is full of great local business profiles, plus great information for entrepreneurs and industry professionals alike.
Tampa Bay Business Journals is a free monthly publication covering the Tampa Bay area and Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater area, with a focus on business owners who are passionate about their community.
If you’re in the Tampa bay area, you’re probably already aware of our publication. With a focus on Tampa’s business community, Tampa Bay Business Journals is a great place to find local community-focused information about what’s going on in your community.
I feel like I’m in a time loop, watching Colt, his sister, a bunch of Visionaries, and all the other characters in the game. It’s as if I’m watching the same movie all over again. I am so thankful I have a subscription to this publication, but even more thankful I have an internet connection.
What I like about Tampa Bay Business Journals is that it is written for business people, not just Tampas residents. The articles are focused on business news, current events, and personal perspectives on what’s going on in the industry in your community. This article, for example, outlines how to increase your restaurant’s traffic and sales by introducing a new type of business card. That is so cool.
Another great article discusses the new “New Venture” program in the area of software development. While the article is focused on the Tampa Bay area, its lessons apply to companies in other areas of the country and abroad where the need to hire talented developers is increasing.
And, finally, the article you just read is one of the best I’ve ever read in my life. Read it.
What’s even cooler is that the article (which is available for free) talks about how to convince your co-workers to take their own business cards with them, too.
The article, written by a former employee of a major Florida software development company, starts off with a list of the things you should never say to a potential employee of yours. You should never tell them that you are the best developer in the world, that you are the best developer by a long shot, that you can code anything at all and that you will make them an amazing team.
The list can be condensed to just one thing though: “Say ‘I’m the best developer in the world and I can code anything at all,’ and they will freak out.
