If you’ve been, um, “evaluating your options” lately (translation: looking for a j-o-b after getting downsized to the curb), there’s an event coming up that could help you open up your entrepreneurial chakras.
I’ve been singing the Don’t Think J-O-B, Think B-I-Z song for over a year now, and it seems as if the rest of the world is starting to sing back-up – including RVA’s own Venture Forum, who has announced their Entrepreneur Fair on June 5 @ CapOne’s West Creek campus. Capital One is hosting the event, which has to be a good idea on their part. Earn loyalty from start-ups, get their business as they grow. Win/win (if everyone remembers to read the fine print).
The Entrepreneur Fair is slated to include sessions on a variety of topics of interest to anyone looking to start or grow a business:
- What I Wish I’d Known When I Started My Business
- Controlling Your Destiny: Why Pursuing Your Entrepreneurial Dream Makes Sense
- Buying a Business
- From Corporate Exec to Managing in an Entrepreneurial Organization
- Entrepreneur Success Stories
The Fair’s also going to feature my buddy Mike Ogilvie’s IGNITE Speed Networking, a facilitated speed networking session that goes miles beyond traditional business networking, helping create contacts and connections that will help move entrepreneurs further, and faster, down their path to success.
Get yer entrepreneur on – if you’re anywhere near RVA on Friday, June 5, plan to come by the Fair, running from 8am to 1:30pm. Start writing your own success story.
That’s MY story, and I’m stickin’ to it…
