Business of the Month:

David Bennett, CPA
Our Business of the Month is David Bennett, CPA.

When Dave was in college, his intention was to work in the banking industry. With a degree in business and economics from the University of San Francisco, a masters degree in economics from the University of California, Los Angeles and a second masters in business from the University of Southern California, Dave went to work for Union Bank. Wanting to live in Northern California, Dave requested a transfer to the Bay Area, and it was granted. He rose to be a vice president at Union Bank and enjoyed teaching new hires a very sophisticated program of financial statement analysis. Through this, he learned more about CPAs, decided he’s like to give it a try and the rest is history. To learn more, click here.

Essentials Seminar Series for Small Business Owners

September 6

Bridging the Generational Divide through Leadership

Diversity is something we strive for in most workplaces. Some companies do better than others. When the topic of leadership and diversity are discussed, it is often in terms of cultural awareness. Another topic that is getting recent attention is age diversity.

The recession kept Baby Boomers in the workforce past retirement age. Now, people are staying in the workforce for a variety of reasons beyond simple necessity.

We are living longer and staying engaged keeps us healthier. Leading across four generations presents a significant challenge to leadership and how we communicate with clients, employees, and colleagues.

What to Do on the Tiburon Peninsula

Tiburon's fascinating history and natural beauty also provide a variety of unique attractions. In Tiburon, the 1884 Tiburon Railroad-Ferry Depot Museum-the only dual-use railroad terminal to survive west of the Hudson River-is on the National Register of Historic Places. Old St. Hilary's, a Carpenter Gothic church set in the midst of a wildflower preserve, was built in 1888 and offers stunning views of the Bay and Golden Gate Bridge.

Ark Row, former houseboats on Tiburon Lagoon before it was filled in the 1940s, now houses restaurants and shops along upper Main Street. Tiburon Playhouse, site of the Tiburon International Film Festival, shows first-run domestic and foreign films.

And in Belvedere, the China Cabin is the restored Social Saloon of the SS China (1866), a national maritime monument with a gilded Victorian drawing room. Belvedere-Tiburon Landmarks Society


No time? No muscles? No matter. Tiburon Uplands Nature Preserve, a tiny preserve tucked into a shady canyon along Paradise Drive, offers a very easy, 0.7 mile loop trail that's perfect for a quick hike or a leisurely wildflower walk. This little-known gem wanders through a thick forest of California bay, climbs moderately through woods with coast live oak and toyon, then segues to grassland, crossing a seasonal creek en route.

Angel Island State Park

For a short course in California history, board the Angel Island-Tiburon Ferry for the 10-minute boat trip to Ayala Cove, entry to Angel Island State Park. From here the 740-acre mountain island encompasses the history of the Golden State from its Coast Miwok beginnings to the Army presence through the Civil War, World Wars I and II, and most recently, as a NIKE missile base. Immigration's pivotal role comes to life at the Immigration Station, where thousands of mostly Chinese immigrants were detained-and some denied entrance to the United States-during a period of exclusionary immigration laws.

Directions to the Tiburon Peninsula

After exiting Highway 101, take Tiburon Boulevard (Highway 131) east until you reach the tip of the peninsula. As you approach Main Street, the downtown hub, you'll find the Boardwalk Shopping Center on the right and Point Tiburon Plaza to the left. 

Park your car at one of the several lots downtown. Tiburon is a pleasantly walkable destination. For a helpful map, pick up a self-guided historical walking tour brochure (free) from the Belvedere-Tiburon Landmarks Society in the Donohue Building on Paradise Drive or visit the Tiburon Peninsula Chamber of Commerce office at 96B Main Street.
