Want some practical tips on how to deal with banks? Like when you call, you should ask for the president’s office, because his or her secretary will be able to help you much more than the receptionist? Or that you should expect to be transferred about four times or cut off at least once?
Ten Tips for Communicating Effectively with Banks is one article on the CEO Club and Center for Entrepreneurial Management site at http://www.ceo-clubs.org.

Want some practical tips on how to deal with banks? Like when you call, you should ask for the president’s office, because his or her secretary will be able to help you much more than the receptionist? Or that you should expect to be transferred about four times or cut off at least once?
Ten Tips for Communicating Effectively with Banks is one article on the CEO Club and Center for Entrepreneurial Management site at http://www.ceo-clubs.org.
The CEO Club is the successor of the American Management Association and is based in New York City. Its site lists news and events, business advice, as well as information about the club and its members. All members can be listed and have home pages attached to the site.
Other articles found at the site include “Romancing the Money Men,” “How to Buy a Business for Very Little Cash” and one on employee spinoffs.
Here are some other sites worth checking out:
–The Pacific Research Institute has a number of academic-type papers on its page that could help businesses. It is based in California, so its information also is geared toward California readers. However, many of the papers are universal in scope.
The page, at http://www.ideas.org, is split into areas such as civil rights, education, legal issues and health care. Articles include a look at women in the workplace that concludes that what hinders women is not discrimination in its truest form (meaning men rejecting job applicants because they are women) but the lack of equality in opportunities. Other articles explore the future of affirmative action in the University of California system and future health care-system models.
–Small Business Today is an upcoming series to be aired on public television stations. It has its own site at http://www.sbtoday.com that tells about the show and when and where it will air, plus gives some business advice from host Hattie Bryant.
Bryant’s goal with the show is “to make starting and growing a business easier for you than it was for me.” The show promises to be an in-depth look at starting a small business. The site itself is an interesting jumping-off point, but certainly not an all-in-one-site answer for small businesspeople.
–Martino & Angora Inc., the Fairport public-relations and advertising firm, has its own Web site at http://www.martino-angora.com.
The site tells about the firm’s products and customers, all the normal information on a home page. However, it also has a page devoted to non-profit organizations and projects. For example, the agency plans to feature the YWCA Women’s Vote Project ’96 and Lifespan of Greater Rochester Inc.’s employment services.
