Ruth KingÂ?s new audio CD "Entrepreneurial Terror: How to Get Through the Dark Days Into the Light," reveals for the first time, secrets of business owners who have made it through the dark days.

When you are one of the 23 million business owners in the United States you will go through it. Where do you go for help? How do you make it as painless and as short as possible? Ruth King’s audio CD "Entrepreneurial Terror: How to Get Through the Dark Days Into the Light," reveals for the first time, secrets of business owners who have made it through the dark days. Here are a few:

Deal with the logic of the situation. Terror begins when emotion takes over logic. Ask yourself “What can I do TODAY to solve the issue?” You probably can’t solve the whole issue. However, you can do something. Find someone who believes in you (sometimes more that you believe in you) when you’re going through the terror. Communicate with that person frequently. And if all else fails you can do what one entrepreneur did.--get in your car, put the top down and drive away screaming at the top of your lungs.

The six CD set gives entrepreneurs the opportunity to get ideas that will help solve a business issue that they've been wrestling with or an idea that will help them generate thousands of dollars. As they listen to the stories they will realize they are not alone. They will discover that others have gone through what they are going through and succeeded. They will save time and money learning from the mistakes of others.

Ruth King is a serial entrepreneur. Over the past 25 years she has owned seven businesses. Her first business, Business Ventures Corporation, began operations in 1981. Through Business Ventures Corporation she travels throughout the United States coaching, training and helping small businesses achieve the business goals they want to achieve.

She is especially proud of one contractor she helped climb out of a big hole. He started with a negative $400,000 net worth 15 years ago and is still in business today, profitably and with a positive net worth.

After twelve years on the road, doing 200 flights per year, she knew there had to be a better way to reach contractors and other small business people who wanted to build their businesses and train their employees. Her husband came up with the technology. As a result, ProNetworkTV, Inc. and its first channel, HVACChannel.tv, were born. EntrepreneursTV.com begins October 4, 2004. This is television on the Internet and on cell phones. Information when you want it, where you want it, for less than the cost of lunch.

ProNetworkTV, Inc. is one of three companies that Ruth currently is an owner/partner in. She has been involved with many different businesses over the years with a wide range of interests including music, video graphic production, healthy house products and t-shirts.

Ruth is passionate about helping adults learn to read, photography and marathon races. She helped start an adult literacy organization in 1986 that currently serves over 1,000 adults per year, and she ran the Boston Marathon in April 2004.

Ruth holds Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Chemical Engineering from Tufts University and University of Pennsylvania, respectively. She also holds an MBA in finance from Georgia State University.

Ruth has spoken for national and state association meetings, national and local trade shows, manufacturers, distributors and others in 49 of 50 states. She is a down to earth, thought-provoking speaker who will provide audiences with ideas that will inspire them and help them earn more profits. She is available for radio and TV interviews, in store book signings, discussions, lectures and seminars. She is available world wide depending on her schedule.
