The much anticipated Rex's Chicken is the newest restaurant in Bixby, Oklahoma.  Before they even get the doors open each day, customers are already standing in line to get into the restaurant, which is a reborn effort of the original Rex's Chicken.  The restaurant is located at 111th Street and Memorial Drive in Bixby, Oklahoma.  After a quiet opening with no advertising or announcements, the restaurant has seen a continuous crowd since.  The new Rex's Chicken did around $50,000 in the first five days of opening.  Currently, it looks like Rex's Chicken will be the biggest restaurant in Bixby, Oklahoma just based on early results.  Rex's Chicken is famous for its honey covered fry bread and bite-size chicken pieces.  In 1999, the original chain went bankrupt and, in 2007, the new owners...
Entrepreneurs must perform their due diligence before buying an existing business    Tulsa, OK - Bill Bartmann, Business Coach, continues his lecture series by teaching students how to do their due-diligence as they think their way through everything they need to understand before making the commitment to buy a business.   The first due diligence question to ask is ‘Why is the business for sale?'  Bill Bartmann said, "You must get an answer that you feel is credible; you have the right to be skeptical.  Do not think you have to accept the first answer you hear."   The next due diligence question to ask is ‘What is your general perception of the industry?'  Bill Bartmann said, "Your intent will be to increase the volume of the business.  Has anything happened to have an adverse affect on...

If you were trying to bait a catfish into hopping onto your hook, you probably would want to make sure you are using the bait that is the most tempting and produces the most results right?!....Using a certain bait for catfish isn't necassarily the same bait you would use to catch a cod. How well do you know what you are trying to catch? And if you had your line dangling in the water next to someone who was trying to catch the same fish, how would you be better than them.  What about your bait would be more enticing? It just takes a little effort, maybe some research and an observant heart to the needs of those we want to catch.  What might be a "selling point" (bait) for you, may not be something someone else is looking for.  How impressed would you be if you went to take a car for a te...

Imagine you had a friend who had lost a hundred pounds in the course of a year, they worked out and ate right and took all the steps to move forward to getting healthy.  Then imagine after they reached their goal weight they decided to celebrate by buying a 100 lb bar bell, they bought special straps for the bar bell so they could carry it around on their back all day and everyday.  Sounds crazy doesn't it?  How many people actually do this with everything else in life, emotionally and mentally, business and personal? Who wants be one of those people? When you carry around dead weight, it makes every other task more challenging than what it should be.  Focusing mentally on anything productive is hard to do when your mind has things in the back trying to push their way forward.  Dead wei...

It can be a challenge to stay positive when we are constantly reminded of things that could be or can go wrong.  Even watching tv can be a challenge with the media's perspective.  Some of the things we hear could potentially send some people into "panic overdrive".  It is wise to be prepared, but there is a huge difference between 'being prepared' and 'dwelling on the worst case scenario'. Our reactions can actually change a situation for better or worse.  When you dread something happening, you are thinking about it negatively and in a sense almost making it happen.  Its like when you fear it, you are experiencing the emotion you would have if it was actually happening, why go through all that when you don't have to.  Some people, at the first sign of possible bad weather, they are rea...

I just found out that the new Spirit Bank Event Center is getting ready to open its doors soon in Bixby , Oklahoma .  The concerts for this fall have just been announced so construction crews are in a hurry to finish by the deadline.  Concert performances for this fall will include Uncle Kracker, Kutless, and Michael Smith. It's great to have a new events center in town but there has been a bit of talk about the new event center competing with the Mabee Center and the BOK Arena for entertainment acts.  Everything should workout though.  The Spirit Bank Event Center will host the 66rs basketball games, while the Mabee Center will host the ORU Eagles basketball games.  So far it doesn't look to me like they are in competition.  The Spirit Bank will be the smallest venue of three venues wi...
