Money for Entrepreneurs

(PRWEB) April 19, 2003

“POCKET CHANGE” Micro Business Success Seminar will give away 0 seed money to participant with winning “BizNiche” idea. The Seminar, co-sponsored by Pathway of Life Fellowship Church, Helping Hands Development Center, and Artists Showcase of the Palm Beaches will feature Mary Squire, motivational speaker and author of the new book, Mind Your Own BizNiche!, published by Writer’s Club Press, May 2002.

‘A BizNiche is a personalized Business Niche. It’s that thing you do because you are you. It’s the entrepreneurial idea you discover when you mix courage and creativity; passion and personality; reality and resources. In your own business, or working for someone else, a BizNiche is a unique expression of your talent, your spirit, and your ideas, channeled into opportunities that create success. ‘ “It may be difficult to believe that you can earn a living, working in a position you create (and love)”, says Squire, “but I challenge you to prove that it can NOT be done!”

Conditions in today’s job market suggest that Mind Your Own BizNiche! is an answer to prayer ‘for such a time as this’. ‘76% of the working class in this country are not attached to the lifework they desire’ (Gallup Management Journal, Spring, 2001). With unemployment holding at about 5.9% more than 8.3 million Americans are currently out of work. In the aftermath of 9/11, Enron, and similar economic events, USA Today reports that many Americans have been forced into “wrenching and profound shifts in their work priorities and aspirations.”

“Unlike traditional ‘business start-up’ workshops, these “Pocket Change” Seminars offer guidance through the creative process of self-discovery, personal inventory, goal setting, action planning, and affirmation that help lay a foundation for BizNiche success. If your ultimate goals include self-fulfillment, a rich and rewarding lifestyle, and turning your dreams into reality, don’t expect ‘business’ ownership, or a ‘job’, to satisfy you. What you really need is a BizNiche.”

Winning BizNiche ideas from last month’s “Pocket Change” Seminar included a specialty consignment shop, youth financial services, and an evangelistic training ministry. Three participants divided a cash prize of 0, donated by a private individual whose generosity will help launch the ventures of BizNiche entrepreneurs. This month’s cash prize will be donated by sponsors. Organizations and individuals interested in contributing cash or other prizes for future winning ideas should email
