Announcing Employ Yourself: The Entrepreneurial Career Option Event
Barbara Poole, Founder and CEO of Employaid.com, partnering with Pace University Office of Career Services, announces a super charged Event for all would -be and start-up phase entrepreneurs.
Ridgefield, Connecticut – The economy may be recovering, yet the disparaging news for job seekers is that employment is a lagging indicator of that resurgence. With millions of workers unemployed, start-up businesses will fuel the growth of New Economy industries.
On Saturday, January 23, Employaid Events moves to White Plains, the backyard of NYC’s fast moving small business scene, for an information packed start-up business event, presented by Employaid.com and Pace University Career Services. We are opening our doors for a seminar filled with advice from world class speakers in the fields of entrepreneurship, personal reinvention, new business models, and mechanics of launching and running a small business. Each speaker has successfully reinvented their own career and will offer candid insight into the realities of change, mindset shift, and the nuts and bolts of running a business in today’s volatile economy.
Barbara Poole, CEO of Employaid.com stated, “The traditional resources available for small business have not kept pace with starting up in this volatile moment in our economic history. Although more individuals are turning to entrepreneurship, it’s not for the faint of heart. That’s why we created this Event. We especially wanted to hold it in a venue convenient to both New York and Connecticut entrepreneurs.”
Jody Queen-Hubert, Executive Director of Career Services for Pace University said, “Charting one’s own path has never been more attractive. With record unemployment, we felt it was important to look at career alternatives and present the other side of the coin to our Pace alumni and the community. For those who have always dreamed of starting something of their own or those who are embarking on a second career to offer their professional services, this seminar should prove invaluable.”
