Every Sunday morning we will publish a photograph of an SBI’er “in action” which is meant to illustrate how much fun we have working with you.

 

This project has one purpose: to celebrate you, our clients and followers.

 

Companies, firms, and fads come and go. But, because of you, SBI, the firm we love, has become a leader and has withstood the test of time. And as a result, smiles have been put on many faces. Thank you.

 

You can follow the project, and get to know our people, at #SBIFirstTenYears.

 

Napa Sales Leader Event

 

Were you there? 

 

This August at the Meadowood Napa Valley Resort, a dozen of the top sales leaders in the United States spent two days reviewing SBI’s 10th Annual Research Report.  The sales leaders were the invited guests of SBI.  They and their spouses also managed to fit in some recreation, a little wine tasting, and some rare relaxation time at one of the country’s premiere resorts.

 

If you didn’t make the list this year, it’s not too late.  You can gain access to the exact workbook reviewed by these top performers.  Click here to create an account, or just log in and download your own copy.  If you’d like to review some of it with an SBI subject matter expert, just let us know.  If you want to get together after work hours, we can probably provide some wine as well!
