Startup Week Chattanooga
This week I am attending as many events as possible at Startup Week Chattanooga, a free conference in Chattanooga, Tennessee that hope to encourage a move towards a more entrepreneurial spirit in the city and promotes networking and growth around the area as well as networking with individuals that are outside of the area. So far, it has been quite useful for myself in perfecting my goals and beliefs for what I am trying to build with this website.
The main goal that I am working towards is to primarily provide information and assistance to recent and soon to graduate college students around skills that they already have to build a business around that they can be truly proud of. My hope is that I can help the over 80% of students that leave college without a job offer and are forced to go into fields that have absolutely nothing to do with what they actually are passionate about.
I will be working over the next few weeks to gather as many different idea creation and business opportunities that I can in order to begin progress towards these goals. Also I am working with students to teach them how they begin to cultivate skills that they unknowingly have from classes into potential businesses and income streams.
As a jumping off point I would like to leave you with a few jumping off points that I hope to address during this post series.
- Any skill has potential to become a business, I want to help you design your future.
- Now that you have a skill, how do you reach the people who are interested in what you do.
- Building your own brand image that promotes your skill.
- Skill to business. The easiest journey you have ever taken.
- How can you market your skill to provide multiple income streams.
I hope that you gain a lot from the information that I will be bringing to you. Also, please leave comments on what you are hoping to learn!
These will be in multiple presentation forms so let me know what you think and which versions you prefer more than others and why.
Thanks! Let’s design a future that is fulfilling and profitable together!
