The Business Model Canvas is a helpful tool startups (and existing operations) can use to better analyze their concepts. Just a one-page document, it demands business owners answer critical questions about their offering, including interactions with customers and suppliers, and key financial and operational considerations. By identifying gaps in understanding that lead to potential problems, business can consider quick pivots before time and money are wasted. Learn how to complete a canvas, identify your value proposition and challenge it with a hypothesis that you can test in the real world.  Register for this CEDF webinar here.

Carm's Classics Club: 'Pygmalion'
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Join us for the next meeting of Carm's Classics. This meeting is one of transformation as we read George Bernard Shaw's classic play Pygmalion and Jennieke Cohen's My Fine Fellow

PygmalionA chance meeting between Henry Higgins, a professor of phonetics, and Cockney flower seller Eliza Doolittle leads to a bet that he can teach her how to speak proper English. While Higgins undertakes an effort to train Liza out of her Cockney accent to prove that it is one's manner of speaking that determines one's opportunities, Liza's refreshing candor and generosity of spirit effects a change in Higgins himself.

My Fine Fellow: It's 1830s England, and Culinarians — doyens who consult with society's elite to create gorgeous food and confections — are the crème de la crème of high society. Helena Higgins, top of her class at the Royal Academy, has a sharp demeanor and an even sharper palate — and knows stardom awaits her if she can produce greatness in her final year. Penelope Pickering is going to prove the value of non-European cuisine to all of England. Her contemporaries may scorn her Filipina heritage and her dishes, but with her flawless social graces and culinary talents, Penelope is set to prove them wrong. Elijah Little has nothing to his name but a truly excellent instinct for flavors. London merchants won't allow a Jewish boy to own a shop, so he hawks his pasties for a shilling a piece to passersby, but he knows with training he can break into the highest echelon of society. When Penelope and Helena meet Elijah, a golden opportunity arises: to pull off a project never seen before, and turn Elijah from a street vendor to a gentleman chef. But Elijah's transformation will have a greater impact on this trio than they originally realize.

Carm's Classics Club is open to tweens, teens, and adults. All participants will receive a copy of both Pygmalion and My Fine Fellow that they may keep. This is a hybrid program. You can join us in person or virtually through Zoom.

Space is limited. Registration is required to receive copies of the books and the Zoom link. This program is brought to you by the generous funding of the Friends of C.H. Booth Library.

Shut Up & Write!
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Are you looking for a community of writers? Maybe just a quiet space and a set time that you can get to working on that project you've been picking at? Join us! Every Thursday at 6:30 PM, all you have to do is...

1. Show Up
2. Find a Seat, Settle In, & Write
3. Take Off or Hang Around to Chat, Share, Help, and Learn

One of the most successful techniques for developing a new habit is to commit to a specific day, time, and location when you will follow through. By making the commitment to show up for your writing at the same time each week, you are able to turn one hour of focused writing into a stable routine that yields remarkable results.

Studies have shown that even the smallest sense of belonging increases performance on a variety of tasks. When you show up for a Shut Up & Write event, not only are you supported and motivated by everyone else writing around you, you are also a part of a community of writers all over the world.


See you there!
