At a time when unemployment levels are unacceptably high, it is critical that we do all that we can to make it easier for local businesses to expand and create the jobs that our community need. The sense of purpose, accomplishment and productivity that comes with a job cannot be bestowed by government. It is created and grown in the heart of every Employee, Business Owner and Entrepreneur.
No matter the issue, having a job gives you a sense of self, enables you to participate in your community and gives you a vested interest in the way your government operates.
“Many people are uncertain about the future economy and need to be empowered. Using a holistic approach, the expo workshops focus on the mental, physical and financial well being of attendees. This develops competitive advantage in the 21st century for confident management of careers and small businesses.”
