Global Links Acquires
MainStreetChamber To Work With BXI
Global Links Corp. (OTC:GLCO) has announced the acquisition of
national business networking organization MainStreetChamber (MSC).
MainStreetChamber develops and engages a wide network of
business professionals in local marketplaces across the nation by
offering free membership and networking events. Chapter presidents,
who serve to promote business in their area, run MSC's local groups.
The company offers a no-cost platform, in order to reach more
businesses and build a very strong national organization.
MSC will utilize the buying power of its member base to negotiate
exclusive rebate and discount programs with national retail
corporations, whereby its members will receive specific rebates or
discounts on their products and services. Revenue will then be
generated in the form of a monthly commission paid by these
corporations, based on the amount of business generated from MSC
members. The larger its membership base becomes, the stronger the
discount rate and rebate programs can benefit the members as well as
its organizational structure.
Global Links' management also
cites the acquisition as a strategic move that will strengthen the
business of its subsidiary company, BXI Trade Exchange. Both
subsidiaries are currently offering business opportunities by
opening local offices.
Global Links President Frank
Dobrucki, noted, "MainStreetChamber is a perfect fit for Global
Links and will create a strong synergy with our subsidiary BXI Trade
Exchange, which will offer MSC members new ways of conducting
business through its barter process. Both organizations will be able
to refer members to each other, which will simultaneously increase
the value of both companies as each business's strength is
predicated on the size and strength of their member bases. This will
in turn increase Global Links' revenue and increase shareholder

Are Cashflow Problems Constantly
Facing Your Company?
According to David Birch, a gazelle is a company that has a
minimum of $100,000 in revenues and manages to grow at least 20%
over a four-year period. Only 3% of all companies have accomplished
this demanding task. Birch, who is credited with hatching the
notion that small rather than large companies are the engines of job
creation, says that a small company views profitability as variable
and quite manipulatable. But cashflow is a constant issue because of
fixed (payroll) expenses and overhead.
equals business survival. But not all cashflow is due to good
management, and not all of it will help you survive either.
Accordingly, if you find that you have extra cash at the end of the
month, follow this five-step strategy:
- Determine the source of the your positive cashflow.
- Project future cashflow.
- Establish priorities for the cashflow.
- Research viable strategies and opportunities to generate
- Choose the best strategy for your business and stick with
After all is said and done, positive cashflow comes from only
four sources: new debt, new investment, sale of fixed assets, and
The first three are limited. So if the fourth source, operations,
doesn't kick in, then sooner or later your creditors pull the plug.
Make it your goal to go after one of the best sources for
new cashflow — working with your trade exchange counselor to
cover more of your company's business expenses with trade dollars.

Hubble Space Telescope and the Mariner space program. In 1983, Birch
started Cognetics, subsequently rechristened Arc Analytics — a
