NBDA Super Seminar Series is Back!

Linda Armstrong Kelly Headlines Super Seminars as Interbike Keynote.
The 2007 NBDA Super Seminar series roars out this September at Interbike Las Vegas with mother of seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong, Linda Armstrong Kelly presenting her captivating keynote presentation based on her book "No Mountain High Enough - Raising Lance, Raising Me."

As a young single mom, Linda vowed to raise Lance with all the advantages she did not have. Her positive influence as a parent was the driving force in encouraging him to fulfill his destiny as one of the greatest athletes in history. Included in her speech are life skills such as:

  • Maintaining a positive attitude
  • Improving leadership skills
  • Achieving peak performance
  • Creating work/life balance
  • Developing and delivering strong work ethics
  • Setting and achieving goals both personally and professionally
  • How to turn a bad choice into a life-learning opportunity

In addition to Linda, the NBDA has scheduled many other top-notch educational retail sessions. There is no cost and no registration necessary for all Interbike Las Vegas sessions.

More information and registration information can be found online at NBDA's online Think Green best practice list from several Portland, Oregon bike shops who put their heads together recently to share their "best practices" on recycling and other ways to be "green" businesses.

  • Recycle paper and cardboard: helmet boxes, shoeboxes, juice boxes, receipts, etc. "We save the best bike boxes, complete with all the packaging to protect the bikes in shipping. We sell over 100 used bike boxes each year to customers."

  • Recycle metals: pop cans, other aluminum, tin, and steel. "We generally accumulate our steel and aluminum in one location and haul it off in the slow season to a recycling center that pays for it."

  • Recycle inner tubes: Alchemy Goods, makes inner tubes into messenger bags with straps from recycled seat belts.
