October Luncheon Notes

Thursday, October 10th, 2019
In Attendance: 25
Called to Order: 11:30

1- Introductions – What failures have you had in business and/or life and were able to learn from?

  • *S. Fabre – Agape Community Insurance – Business-get all verbal agreements in writing before signing lease. Marriage-divorce but still friends. Parenting-helicopter parenting. Personal-walking away from God at 18 but now walking very close!
  • A. Gunter – Agape Community Insurance – Runs an adult foster care service with a focus on mental health. Uses failure as a way to learn.
  • P. Roberts – Westside Community Church – Were not as supportive of son in school as they wish they had been. He had learning disabilities and they feel they should have been more active in helping him.
  • P. Miller – Westside Cruisers Car Club – did not pursue National Guard assistance with college. Wishes she had.
  • S. Beasley – Beaverton Education Foundation – wishes she did more in college, reached out more and participated more
  • L. Taylor – Willamette West Habitat for Humanity – was initially devastated by a layoff but it led to a new job.
  • J. Doane – TVWD – feels that things in LA don’t work, but they work out for him in Portland. He feels he is the “right person for the job” and gets things working
  • D. Lopez – Westside Community Church – was in gangs in middle school and high school, watched friends go to prison and get deported but pulled himself out and learned from it and now works to steer youth/away from that
  • A. Terrones – WCSO – adoption of family members they turned down. Regrets not taking them in and thinks they would be better off had she. Because of this past decision, she has a passion for working with and for struggling youth. WCSO is hoping to merge with Beaverton PAL to reach more kids
  • J. Whitehouse – Edward Jones – 23 years in the Marines, learned leadership from a young age. Wake up with the goal to be better today than yesterday, to fail forward. Edward Jones pushes him to be better
  • J. Southgate – Southgate Consulting – because of his “missed opportunities” he has learned to counsel young people to pursue their dreams
  • D. Fairhurst – Curves – feels she is missing out on opportunities to spend time with family, and has put business up for sale to spend more time with kids, present in the community, voice in the schools and work with youth
  • B. Flint -INLINE Commercial Construction – wish they had made better hiring decisions early on, failures in marriage led to opportunities to learn and grow
  • D. Flint – INLINE Commercial Construction – has had cancer twice, learned to find new paths to success, to investigate, to do his due diligence, and to think through before making decisions
  • K Larmanger – Atlantis Caregiving – spends too much time at work and not enough with kids. Does not want her kids to think she spends too much time at work not with them. Should have started working in community earlier rather than working for big HMO.
  • K. J. – Atlantis Caregiving – professional failure – not jumping on opportunities because she was scared. Personal Failures – needs to pay more attention to choices and chances taken and proactively make change.
  • K Bolin – Edward Jones – was going to be in computer science, room for only 40 in her program and and she was 42. She couldn’t commit to 6 years so she took the easiest route to graduate which was home economics – looks at it as “home resource management” regrets not pushing to get ahead in computers. Took Mom and Grandparents for granted, expected them to be there. Wish she would have spent more time appreciating them.
  • M. Ortiz – NW Chineese Academy – failures turned into the grander plan and discovered education as her path because she couldn’t pursue her original goal. Trying to teach her daughter to live her truth and become what she wants to be, not what others tell her to be
  • MK – Agape Community Insurance – failure in not standing up for himself, he is learning to do that and to express himself. Went into a bad business deal and learned from it.
  • M. Schmidt & Yee – personal failure should have had the better meal at lunch today. 😉 Been practicing law for 40 years, but soon after he started, he was working on a criminal case. He was working at his desk and the client called saying “Aren’t you supposed to be here today?” He had missed a court appearance and as a result, he learned to keep better track of calendar
  • S. Rennie – Schmidt & Yee – needs to spend more time with his kids while they are still young.
  • R. Bradley – Mackley Auto Group – started business to help family but it resulted in less time with family.
  • K. Peiris – Taste of Pearl Catering – He grew up in a privileged family but took it for granted and “destroyed” family finances, wishes he’d apologized instead of partying and not going to school. Regrets taking advantage of parents because now they are gone and he can’t make it right. Teaches his son not to do that. He is very giving and trusting sometimes people take advantage of him. He turned his hobby into his job, followed passions
  • C. Hoover – Minuteman Mortgage – Bought a “salvaged” car on Craigslist and learned quickly, not to get a car without airbags when she got into an accident. Feels life has its ups and downs, that they are part of the human condition. There is no such thing as perfection, perfection is an illusion, Life is not what happens to you, it is how you react.

  • Pam Yee is not here today. At Schmidt & Yee she represents both business and individuals entities, handles real estate, probate, and estate planning
  • Mike Schmidt does wills, trust, probate, guardianships and conservatorships
  • Scott Rennie – works alongside Pam Yee in business, real estate, disputes. Real Estate easements, purchase agreements, property matters
    • Operate as “LLC” over sole proprietorship, because sole proprietorship brings with it more personal responsibility. A creditor can take your personal property rather than just take from the business.
    • Partnership can be worse than sole proprietorship because you can have assets taken from you if your partner fails

3 – Discussion on Reasons we are called to Community – during introductions each of us discussed what we thought of when we heard the word “community”. Unity, Support, Local, Diversity were some of the common themes provided. Sally circulated a hand out on what community is:

  • Community is encouraging – creates the ideal environment to be a friend, pursue a teach or train a student. Bear each others burdens. We each have something to teach and to learn
  • Community is fun – it should never be boring or forced. Our culture discourages taking time for fun but it’s a necessary part of good mental health.
  • Community encourages personal growth – the gathering of more than one brings out the best of us; builds unity; uses the gifts and talents each of us has been given; builds a safer community; and builds unity of one purpose.
  • Community fosters love – Martin Luther King, Jr quoted “Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. I have decided to love.” We must learn to live with each other and forgive.
  • Community is life-giving – we are better together than we are alone. When we grow in relationship with others, we’re giving the gift of life to another.

Questions for the group:

  • How can the ABA continue to build community?
  • How can your business or non-profit support community?
  • What gifts and talents can you bring to the table to help build community?
  • What opportunities can you bring to the ABA to build community?

3 – A Long Day (with no Cybersecurity) – video

4 – Guest Speakers:  

  • Don and Rebekah Bradley –  Cybersecurity Business Breach
    • Had just started their business, in January when they started noticing that they were getting leads supposedly generated from their website-but they could tell that they were not actually from their site.  They became nervous. The website appeared to be working as normal. Next they started getting calls about cars they did not carry. They learned that someone had cloned their website. They learned this on a Saturday when their website host company was closed.  As a result the cloned website had all weekend in which it collected car deposits and applications for credit checks. They had to go through the FBI and FCC to file reports and the cloned site was pulled down within 2 hours. Still do not know where those deposits went.  Feel attack came from overseas. They were not the only business hit. They hit multiple car dealerships. Their website company has now increased their site security. She checks every day now to see where their site visits and leads are coming from, and they make sure the majority are from the US.  Their map link was recently hit and visitors were redirected to the Ukraine. They have increased the security of their firewall, and are maintaining knowledge of links. Do not know what Go Daddy did to prevent this in the future. Their website was down off and on while it was being repaired, this had a negative impact on business.  Still use GoDaddy and have not had any further issues. You must be vigilant
  • Matt Rouse – Hook SEO Digital Marketing – Cybersecurity 
    • A non-profit recently spoke to them about how their website had become so corroded by hackers, and with no funds to repair it, they ended up having to just build a new site.  
    • Hackers take all the information from multiple sites and put it all on one server allowing them to corrupt multiple sites at once
    • Security patches need to be kept up to date.  Any link on your site opens you up to vulnerability.  
    • Keep password up to date and strong
    • Use password management software
    • “Last Pass” is a password management software they recommend
    • An employee bringing in their own home computer and  logging on to the internet, can infect the entire company
    • If you use sharing drives – drop box, one drive, etc and one gets infected, it can infect the entire commpay
    • Ransomware – FBI can go after them and insurance can help financially, however once your files are encrypted you can not unencrypt them
    • Recommend companies backup data at an offsite area
    • Always have malware and cyber security software
    • Do not open links you do not know.
    • If you start getting pop ups, unplug your network cable and turn off router to keep it from spreading
    • Use a virus scanner, strong passwords, and educate your staff.
    • Backup data in an offsite storage
    • There is a WordPress plugin called Wordfence, it can help block attacks from outside 
    • If your username is “admin” change it 
    • If your username is your name, change it

  • Personal story – Sally’s phone line was cut, disrupting business, but clients know she is doing her best, she can work from home.  She could yell or she can calm down and recognize she will be okay. Her clients know she will take care of them no matter where they are.  Trained her brain to recognize you can make it a high stress situation or you can allow life to happen and know it will be okay,
