Devote Yourself to creating something that gives you purpose . . .

"So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they're busy doing things they think are important. This is because they're chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning."

Tuesdays with Morrie, author Mitch Albom

Organizations Designed to Help Small Business Entrepreneurs

Here is a list of relevant organizations established to help the small business entrepreneurs setup their business strategy and/or link you to services that promote business growth and development. The internet links will take you either to an "about us" or a "history" page so that you may learn more about the mission of each organization. Whenever possible I've included a contact name, email address, and contact phone number to help you get "connected" which is our mission.
