Seminar Idea

I am getting the urge to put together an entrepreneurial seminar. This would be either a one or two day lecture program for people who want to start their own business or wish to improve their existing business.

I am still working out the details, but I have a general idea of what I want to do. First, it would be held in the theater. I have great conference space for large and small groups. It would have to be classy, which means actual course materials, take home spreadsheet templates and lunch provided.

The seminar would cover as much real content as I could come up with. This is in contrast to the "Wealth" seminars that have a bunch of big name speakers and even more low level speakers who want to sell your their DVDs. Most of the content coming out of those programs is useless hype. I want my seminar to contain specific, useful information.

Of course, I need to figure out how much to charge for the program.

Concession Menu Boards

Since opening Zeus, I have been really unhappy with my concession menus. Yes, I did put in six 42" screens. They are lined up and mounted at the right height. (Getting them at the right height had more to do with luck than skill. I just guessed at the height.)

I started out with a text board and ran everything on powerpoint. The menus are on two screens and repeated 3 times. Yes, the menus were easy to read, but they lacked that certain kick that would make them interesting. I had changed the backgrounds to something with columns, but it still didn't work.

So over the past couple of days, I have been taking pictures of all my menu items and reworking the menus. Here is the the end result:
