With The Points Guy being a small business itself, I realize from a first-hand perspective exactly what goes into making a small business work and how to take it to the next level. So, I’m excited to launch a new initiative where we’ll focus on just that — small businesses.
As part of the first annual TPG Small Business Week, we’ll be taking a closer look at how you, as a small business owner, can maximize your points-earning strategy to fit your business needs and meet your goals. I hope you can join me for one of two Small Business Week sessions I’ll be hosting where we’ll cover everything you need to know about how to maximize your travel and points. At each of the events, I’ll be giving a presentation on how to best utilize your points and miles for your small business, followed by an open Q&A — plus there will be refreshments and light bites. Here are the details for each event:
- Chicago — Tuesday, November 15, 2016
- WeWork Kinzie
- 20 W Kinzie St., Chicago, IL 60654
- New York — Tuesday, November 22, 2016
- WeWork FiDi
- 85 Broad St., New York, NY 10004
Although both events are hosted in collaboration with WeWork, you don’t need to be a WeWork member in order to attend. To RSVP, visit the New York or Chicago page and select the RSVP option, fill out your personal information and we’ll confirm you’re attending.
In addition to attending a session about how to best maximize your spending, followed by the Q&A, you’ll also be able to enter to win a one-on-one consultation with me! We can talk about anything you want — how to outline a points strategy to fit your business goals and needs, favorite airline products or anything in between. To enter, fill out the questionnaire with the RSVP on your respective city’s website. You must register to win for Chicago by Thursday, November 10, and for New York by Friday, November 11. We’ll then select and notify the winner by Friday, November 11, and Wednesday, November 16, for Chicago and New York, respectively.
Small business owners and members of WeWork, alike, I hope to see you at one of our sessions. This will be a great time to plan your points and miles strategy and to figure out how to best meet your needs as a small business owner. I look forward to meeting you and hearing how points and miles can help your small business take off for the first annual #TPGSmallBusinessWeek!
