Bettina Network, inc. NEWS is a new addition to the Bettina Network Blog. Appearing periodically, without timetable predictability, this is a way for you to keep up with all that we do – where you will find a Bettina person, event – some definitions and redefinitions of who we are and what we are doing – updates on past events, activities, and more.
MOST RECENTLY – we infiltrated Harvard Business School Women’s Conference “Let’s Go!”
One of our leaders was the second woman to be accepted into and attend one of Harvard Business School’s Executive Programs and the conference was a part of celebrating fifty years of women at Harvard Business School.
It was a great event with over 1,000 women and a very few very brave men who just couldn’t stay away. We met one man from Milwaukee, Wisconsin holding up his sex and his company. His company sounds as though they are doing much to help this world become a more equal place. We say “sounds as though” because long years of experience tells us not to give kudos for such without much investigation and that we have not done – thus a comment without man or company names.
It was a kind of shock to see the way of the world in large, fairly new companies which are there because of the advent of the internet. Their representatives talked about “teams”, “mentors”, “sponsors”. In large multi-national companies with world wide exposure through their life on the internet this, apparently, is needed to keep you, as one of their employees, from getting lost and becoming one of the minions instead of one of the management and on-your-way-up-people.
We tweeted, re-tweeted, favorited and more. It was great fun and much learning. Although the food wasn’t great. Not one organic anything from dinner the evening before for the conference speakers and panelists, through breakfast, lunch and by dinner the next evening we declined what was offered and went hunting for organic goats milk yogurt and kefir to make that food pass quickly through the system.
Yes, we did have a presence on a panel on hospitality and technology spreading the Bettina Gospel, during which we met some very impressive and very accomplished women from whom we hope to hear more. We have started to think on how to get them involved with Bettina Network, inc. – Interns, Partners, Consultants? If you have ideas, please let us know!
WE ARE GETTING FEEDBACK FROM YOU on the recent beginnings of sending out passwords and memberships in Bettina Network’s Lifestyle Community.
Mostly, your questions have been about the password allowing you access to Bettina’s Menu of Events and how much basic influence this gives you. It is wonderful getting the suggestions. We hope you will ADD EVENTS and use the Menu when you are looking for ELEGANT, GRACIOUS, WELL ORGANIZED EVENTS WITH SUBSTANTIAL Bettina-style content in which to take part.
We have had many requests for passwords from people who want to be a part of Bettina Network’s Lifestyle Community and how to sign up! We are sorry to have to tell you, but there is no ‘sign up’ page on our web site or anyplace else for that to happen. To become a member you have to use the services of Bettina Network, inc. and the people at the point where you use Bettina Network’s services must recommend you for membership. Act ugly and no amount of money spent will get you that password.
We have been in conversation over this for a long time. This Newspage announces that homes which belong to Bettina Network, inc. and those joining in the future are and will be Bettina Homes. Bed and Breakfast is quite inadequate to describe one of the services we offer. Bed & breakfast has become a term overused, misused, describing everything from a hostel to a five star hotel room and the name carries nothing to begin to describe what you can expect in terms of quality or anything else.
We acknowledge the history of from whence we have come, but moving through the present into the future, Bettina Homes is the creation from that history by Bettina Network, inc.
For us to be able to be more specific and so you will know the basic quality you can expect from just hearing the terms, we have adopted and will use Bettina Homes to describe the places, services offered, etc. We do stand out and it is time for the name of one of the very particular services we offer to reflect that stand-outness.
The necessary legal trappings to insure that only homes in the Bettina Network, inc. can carry that name -can call themselves a Bettina Home – have been applied for. While we do not go after people who use our blogs, even though we put a copyright on them, we will go after people who try to call themselves “Bettina Homes” because we do not want to see created the kind of confusion around Bettina Homes which exists today around bed & breakfast or Inns, or Guest Houses, or etc. When you make a reservation to stay in a Bettina Home we want to insure that you have a good basic idea as to what you can expect. All of our homes are not exact replicas of one another and they vary and will continue to vary by location, kind of services offered, physical architectural look of the place, price, etc. There are basics which they all share which is why we take one and not another home into Bettina Network, inc. and that quality is what we want you all to know and be able to expect.
So – until the next time we meet in Bettina Network, inc. NEWS, — keep safe, stay human and be responsible for yourself and others.
