Hey there Business Bloomers!  This episode of the TGIF Business Networking Hangout features two very special guests, +Jim Ault and +Jessica Dewell, discussing Collaboration and Team Building.



About the Topic: Collaboration and Team Building

There are lots of great benefits to collaboration! Each team member brings valuable skills, resources and experience to the project, benefitting the project and the team members who learn from each other as well. The result is a nice library of resources and skill sets that the project members can call on to make their project great!

Jim and Jessica share with us their stories about collaborative projects they are working on and how they’ve helped to build a great team for their project.

About Special Guests Jim Ault and Jessica Dewell

Jim Ault is a master collaborator who reminds me a little bit of the Pied Piper. He has become a valuable team member on many interesting projects with people he’s connected with on Google+. Jim’s business is helping Hangout Hosts to use their rich library of HOA video footage to create great marketing promos for their business.

Jessica Dewell has partnered with an awesome team of mighty women to bring us the Women In Business Today weekly Hangout. It’s a great Hangout and it is where I first got exposed and then connected to some very awesome ladies here on the Plus, which just goes to show you that Hangouts on Air really do help to build a great reputation and expose you to new audiences!


About the Host, Meilani MacDonald

TGIF Host, Meilani.

Meilani MacDonald is a brand identity and outreach strategy consultant who has been hosting the TGIF Business Networking Hangout since before there were Hangouts on Air! For her, TGIF was a way to do business networking beyond local borders. But when Hangouts on Air became available, TGIF also became a great forum for providing information on topics important to small business owners and solopreneurs via live streaming video.

Meilani also runs Meilani’s Blooming Business Club, a forum through which she brings monthly workshops, lessons, videos, stock photos and more to club members, at a price that’s right for savvy solopreneurs and small business owners on a tight budget!

Meilani specializes in teaching club members how to market their business online and build brand identity using social media on purpose, with purpose. Club members also learn how to use Google’s powerful and free suite of tools to do business more efficiently and effectively, from in-house collaboration and organization using Drive, Docs, Spreadsheets, and Forms, to public outreach and online marketing promotions using Google Hangouts on Air and Google+!
