Making The Jump: From Employee To Company Founder

It's a new year and a great time to look at what you need to know to make the jump from being an employee to launching your own startup or small business.

And who better to learn from than the guy who wrote the book on the subject?

Jeff Levy, author of "Making The Jump", will show you what you need to know in this special one-time only event.

This event is for those who wish to now (or in the future) start their own small business or startup.

Jeff Levy will discuss the key considerations when deciding if a business is the right thing for you at this time in your life and at this time in the economic cycle. He will cover the opportunities and risks, including what are appropriate motivations to increase business success.  Vignettes and stories form practical experience will be shared along with audience participation encouraged.

Jobs are not forever. "...the individual worker is going to become more and more responsible for managing his or her own career, risks, and economic security...” - Thomas Friedman (the World is Flat)

Self-employment can actually put you in the best position to achieve financial security, follow your dream and create a work life balance.
