We wish all of you a very Happy New Year and much success, joy and gracious living throughout 2015!
We review what we have done, at the end of each year, within the corporation. We thought we would do something different this year and share that review of Bettina Network, inc. with those who have used our services and those who care about us as much as we care about them.
One of our goals for the year was accomplished towards the end of 2014 through the establishment of Bettina Network Foundation, inc.
It took longer than expected for that to happen, but we worked hard on the structure of the Foundation and to bring it out as a 501©3 organization before the end of 2014. If you would like to know more about this organization, we encourage you to read about it in the Blog – just click on Bettina Network Foundation and the articles written throughout the year will come up for your information. Our mission statement is “We exist to help those in need to restructure and reframe their lives and their thinking through various avenues and tools so they may become entrepreneurs with the mindset, education, requisite tools, resources and skills to start and grow their own business. We establish ourselves in memory of all those who have had wonderful ideas, who worked to bring those ideas into reality in the form of their own businesses, but who died without having reached that goal.”
We tried to set Bettina Network Foundation, inc. up as a self-funding organization and we think we have succeeded in that goal also. Although it is majorly self-funding, we are certainly open to contributions. The Bettina Network, inc.’s web site has a section for the Foundation and there will be a way for you to contribute by going onto the web site and clicking the top link which says “foundation” and there will be a page for contributions.
We were also able to establish an education institute as a part of Bettina Network, inc. There will be more about that later, but for now and for your information, we are basically looking for homes to add to the Bettina Network, inc. which offer an educational component. Guests/scholars/researchers/business people/students -even tourists – will be able to stay and take part in the educational offerings of the home owners as well as visit, tour, take care of other business, visit family and more during their stay in a particular city.
Bettina Network’s Blog has held its own this year and developed from a few hundred visitors a day, at the beginning of 2014, to a consistent 1,000 plus visitors towards the end of the year. Our readership jumped to some 6,000 readers, but the company which is our managed server managed to mess that up – big time – by cutting off whole countries from having access to the Blog. At one point we could not access our own blog because our part of the United States had been cut off from having access to the Blog. When they straightened that out, we still had a difficult time with access because their machines were down more than they were up and active, so we had to re-build the readership and we were not happy campers. It was a horror story which we are still in the process of working through.
Technology is one of the largest problems companies have and we are experiencing the good and the bad of all that technology can do.
Our dream of establishing Bettina Network’s Lifestyle Community has started to happen. We were able to send out passwords to those who used Bettina Network, inc. over the years and welcomed them into the Community. Their first benefit was using their password to access Bettina’s Menu of Events whenever they wish. It is not yet a worldwide Menu, but we are on the way to expanding it so that it will soon become such a calendar of events.
Members of the Community were also able to add events to the Menu using their passwords. We have not have many people use that benefit. It will take time for it to catch on and for Bettina Network’s Lifestyle Community to realize the many benefits they now can access. We are hoping that small, very choice, community events around the world that we would never otherwise know about, become a part of Bettina’s Menu of Events by those in the Community using their passwords to add their favorite events for others to enjoy.
Our dream is that members of Bettina Network’s Lifestyle Community will be able to use their passwords to access events around the world for any date and any location they choose and will be able to use Bettina’s Menu of Events as often as they need to do so.
As you can see we have been busy. We hope you will continue to read Bettina Network’s Blog and to use the services of Bettina Network, inc.
If you have feedback for us, we are open to hearing from you. We were able, over this past year, to bring several things into fruition that we had only been able to dream about, but we continued to work hoping for good results and some of that happened in 2014. Since we are self-funding and do not have the hundred of millions of dollars others seem to be able to access, we think we have done an outstanding job and have congratulated ourselves for about five minutes before getting to work a little harder because we now have a bit of wind behind our backs.
We want to move forward with your input added to our own, to produce a company that serves others and brings goodness into the world. We hope you will send us your suggestions and will stay in touch and use our services for many years to come.
Who knows what 2015 will bring! We hope it brings greatness to us, to you and to your family!
