Detroit Business Consulting Promotes Katelyn Grubb!


Detroit Business Consulting had an exciting day yesterday as Katelyn Grubb was officially promoted to Assistant Management....and the theme was purple and promotion! After joining the company just eight short months ago, Katelyn went from coaching tennis to coaching an entire sales team. She joined Detroit Business Consulting because it was an atmosphere she could relate to. Katelyn explained, "I played tennis at the collegiate level and have a very competitive personality. I could instantly relate to that here with the group of leaders I saw at the company and the competitive drive everyone had."

When speaking about Katelyn, manager Kyle Norman said, "I saw Katelyn make a real transition with her ability to maintain the attitudes of others. It's easy to stay motivated and positive yourself, but it's a whole different skill to be able to keep a team and an office trained, motivated and positive.

What's the next step for Katelyn? There are multiple markets that are open for her to move to once she earns a management position.  Over the next few months, she will be focused on learning the back-end logistics of the office to make the transition from assistant manager to manager!

Detroit Business Consulting Hosts Leadership Conference

The Midwest Leaders Conference was overflowing this year…literally! Offices from Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Toronto met in Troy, Michigan for a day full of learning and networking. The conference was tailored toward three main groups – those who were 8 weeks and under, 8 weeks and over and the administrative teams. Each group had 5 managers speak with them about their own experiences and offer words of advice to help them grow and advance quickly through the management training program. 

Michael Rosenberg closed the conference speaking about the expansion availability for the Midwest. “We have huge clients that are waiting for us to be ready to expand for them,” Michael explained.  “We’ve got to stay focused, apply what you have learned today, and put yourself in a position to be managing and running a campaign by the next time we again for an event.”

Following the conference, everyone went to a local bar and grille for a 301 darts tournament. There were 38 teams total in the single-elimination competition.  After hours of intense play, Robby Rech and Elizabeth Reichert from Detroit took home the trophy!  Now, Robby will already have his first trophy to take to his office when he opens up on his own campaign.

Detroit Business Consulting Watches National Champtionship Game

It was a long evening watching Ohio State take on Oregon last night in the National Championship game! We all gathered at a local bar and grill to watch the game and eat bottomless wings. It was a mixed crowd with some people cheering on the scarlet and gray and others rooting for the Ducks, whose jerseys seem to change every week. It was a fun time for all of us to get together and enjoy the end of college football.

Quotes From America's Second Richest Person

1. Give your mind some clarity.

“I insist on a lot of time being spent, almost every day, to just sit and think. That is very uncommon in American business. I read and think. So I do more reading and thinking, and make less impulse decisions than most people in business. I do it because I like this kind of life.” 

2. Never forget the business basics.

“Price is what you pay. Value is what you get."

3. Know what you're getting into, before you get into it.

"It's far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price."

4. Be smart -- and realistic.

"I try to buy stock in businesses that are so wonderful that an idiot can run them. Because sooner or later, one will."

5. Don't fake it till you make it.

"After all, you only find out who is swimming naked when the tide goes out."

6. Always know who you're dealing with.

"You can’t make a good deal with a bad person."

7. Act with honor and integrity.

"It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you'll do things differently."

8. Value what's most important.

"Too often, a vast collection of possessions ends up possessing its owner. The asset I most value, aside from health, is interesting, diverse, and long-standing friends."

9. Hit the brakes when you need to. 

“The most important thing to do if you find yourself in a hole is to stop digging.” 

10. Be bold. Be confident.

Detroit Business Consulting Celebrates!

Detroit Business Consulting has had a lot to celebrate recently! The ending of that title could have gone many different ways.......celebrates a new campaign, celebrates the 7 year anniversary for Michael, celebrates the trip to Cancun coming up, or celebrates Halloween.  Everyone at the office probably has a different "celebration" that they like the best, and we are excited about all of them.  Let's recap!

Two weeks ago, we launched our fourth campaign for our Troy office.  We are extremely excited to be able to work with AT&T and grow with them. Our team is top-notch and we have a lot of big goals for us as a company, and for the individuals working on this campaign.  The next 6 months should be a game-changer for these individuals.

Next, we celebrated the 7 year anniversary of our CEO, Michael Rosenberg. October 27th marked his 7th year of running a company.  This is quite an accomplishment, considering the growth he has had since his first day as CEO, and the path of success that he is still on.  To celebrate, our company rented out Active8 in Ferndale.  If you haven't ever been there, we highly recommend checking it out!  They have every sort of electronic game you could image, from the old Atari game, to Wii, and everything in between.

The past two weeks have been extremely fun, but we've still got more fun in store. This Friday, we have our company Halloween Party!  Nicole, from our charity team, is heading up the party.  She also organized our Mystery Murder Night last winter, so if you've seen pictures from that event, you know how serious she is about her decorations. Finally, next Thursday, our management team is leaving for Cancun, Mexico.  They have an all-inclusive retreat planned from Thursday to Sunday.  Stay tuned for pictures from our upcoming events!

Detroit Business Consulting Celebrates Pink Week!

Detroit Business Consulting is celebrating Pink Week this week in support of breast cancer awareness. It's a tradition for our office to "pink out" our website, clothes, meeting rooms and even food once a year and to raise awareness for the cause. In comparison to all of the events that we do as an office, this is the personal favorite of our CEO, Michael Rosenberg. Michael explained, "I personally love pink week because it's a cause that so many people can get behind and support." Take a look at our website at www.DetroitBC.com to see how the website is decorated!

Detroit Business Consulting Attends Conference at Hard Rock Hotel

Detroit Business Consulting had a busy weekend in Chicago! We attended a regional management and leadership conference at the Hard Rock Hotel in downtown Chicago.  The meeting rooms were sleek and professional and great knowledge was shared. Managers Michael Rosenberg and Christian Swanson, as well as Director of Communications, Elizabeth Reichert, all spoke at the event.

One of the most exciting events of the day was Daniel Mooney's promotion to management at the end of the conference! Daniel spearheaded the Sprint campaign that was launched in April of this year and has accomplished all of the requirements to earn a management promotion. He's played a vital role in Detroit Business Consulting on many campaigns and has been the #1 sales representative in the nation for every campaign he's worked on. We are very excited for his next step into management.

In addition to the networking and learning that took place this weekend, there was also recognition that was given to two top-performing individuals at our firm. Nicole Lysak and Kallie Zardus received awards and recognition for their hard work they have devoted to the company and the positive example they set for our team. Nicole helped launch our charity team with Children International and Kallie recently transitioned from our sales and marketing team to our human resources team and has made such a impact on the company with her work there.  After receiving the award, Kallie said, "I was so surprised to win the award since it is usually given to someone in the sales and marketing team, but I'm very appreciative to receive that type of recognition from the company!"

Detroit Business Consulting attends a regional conference every three months.  The next conference for us is our management conference in Cancun, Mexico in November, and a conference in Australia in December for select managers. We are definitely looking forward to those!
