The average business owner spends 34.5% of their gross revenues on financing. That represents a HUGE cut into profits, and leaves businesses vulnerable to all sorts of risk. But what if your business could be the bank, and collect that 34.5% as revenue instead? Would that make your business more profitable? More competitive? At this workshop, we'll unpack the financial vehicles corporations such as Apple, Disney, Foster Farms, and McDonalds are using to self-finance their business needs. Why use a banker to fund payroll, operations, equipment purchasing, and fund future business growth? Fire your banker, and become your own source of financing!

The Silent Film Society of Chicago's own Jay Warren will provide the photoplay score for the unique 21st century-produced silent film THE ARTIST (2011). Warren will compile a musical score based on Ludovic Bource's original score, and implement historic silent film era mood and incidental music by period composers William Axt, J. S. Zamencik, and renowned organist Gaylord Carter. A forty-year veteran of silent film accompaniment, Warren is passionate about preserving silent film music, a genre in danger of "slipping through the cracks."

"The Artist" Director Michel Hazanavicius had the daring idea to make a black-and-white silent film more than eighty years after movies had begun to talk - and then he executed that idea brilliantly. The film had the potential to be a tacky gimmick, but it proved to be a great film with outstanding lead actors Jean Dujardin and Berenice Bejo and a solid supporting cast.

Logan Theatre audiences attending THE ARTIST will be treated to an authentic 1920s-style film experience, with Warren bringing in his specially designed digital Mighty Wurlitzer theater organ to provide the photoplay accompaniment. The theatre organ - a genuine American phenomena - was the workhorse of the silent film era. Dynamically superior to the piano and more spontaneous than an orchestra, it is truly "the voice of the silent cinema."

An in-depth introduction to branding for small business owners, startups and entrepreneurs, full of ready-to-apply takeaways. Branding is often misunderstood in the small business world and regarded as something that only the big companies can afford. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. The reality is, most small businesses fail because they don’t have a strong brand (or don’t have a brand at all). Branding is more important than ever but now that consumers are both marketing-savvy and in control of the relationship, what constitutes effective branding has changed. No matter where you are in the life of your small business, and whether you have heard about branding but don’t quite get it or think your business doesn’t need branding, this workshop is for you.

Are you confident you’re taking advantage of every available tax break? Is your tax advisor giving you proactive advice to save on taxes? I’ve got bad news and I’ve got good news. The bad news is, you’re right. You do pay too much tax. You’re probably not taking advantage of every tax break you can. And most advisors do a poor job of actually saving their clients’ money. This workshop is designed to make business owners aware of missed income tax saving opportunities before they occur and help build an effective audit defense program to reduce the magnitude of tax deficiencies.
