Product Description

Educational cruise for sharpeners.  July 16-20, Carnival Victory Cruise Ship. Leaves Miami and goes to Key West, Cozumel and back to Miami. 

In honor of our 20th anniversary of the Sharpeners Jam, we decided to take a cruise as a Bonika family and invite everyone along. You are on your own for booking although we have the details on how we booked the cruise. Like our Sharpeners Jam, you are the educators on this instructional voyage. Please have some information 10 to 30 minutes that would be of help to others in the shear and blade sharpening business. Your information sharing can be in sharpening, repair work, business, computers, sales, organization, etc. No sales pitches, please. Our informal classes may be help pool-side, in the bar or other areas with plenty of free time. Sharpeners and those wishing to become sharpeners plus their families are invited to join us. Also hair stylists and barbers are welcome as well!

Cruise Sessions - twice daily 125 minute sessions morning and afternoon. (Locations and exact schedule of time will be determined on board. Meet and Greet sign with scheduling information will be at the gangway.)

Day 1: Marketing, Sales and Business Presentations. Instructors Gene Megowan and Jay Hunter

Day 2: "Much a do About Money" Explore credit extension, merchant accounts, book-keeping, inventory and budgeting for the small sharpening business. Instructor Mystie Hunter

Day 3: Field Trip - visit a Key West Sharpener plus local salons. 

Day 4: "It's a Family Affair" learn how children and family can be incorporated in the daily operations of the business and make it fun for everyone. Taught during the shore excursions with the sharpeners families ways to market, support and help the business will be demonstrated by the children and grand-children of the sharpeners who will be working on their presentations during the children sessions on Day 1 and Day 2.

Day 5: "Sharper than Sharp," Explore the philosophical aspects of what is really sharp and how to achieve it. Learn the yen and the yang of edge production that accomplishes harmony between the blade, the sharpener and the ultimate user. These are thought provoking sessions you will not want to miss with fun team building assignments that involve the entire sharpening family. Let by Master Sharpener Bonnie Megowan.
