Virginia Beach, VA (PRWEB) January 9, 2006
Business experts agree...50% of all businesses fail in the first year and only 1 in 5 make it to year four. Those who survive the two – four year mark may endure a mountain of debt, health defeating stress levels and only the “dream” of seeing the word “profit” on their budget sheets. Not only should business owners muster the “know how” of understanding “true” business economics, entrepreneurs must become aware of the “hustle” disguised as “help” that awaits them at every corner. Promising “the dream” while stealing your hard earned income, the “con artist” is waiting for the “naive” business owner. With the scam artists in front of you and the economy on your back, I ask the question; “How can business owners fight back and keep “The American Dream” in the face of those types of odds?“
“It’s all about concept and execution…business owners must have their “A” game ready, a polished execution plan, value based reputation and credibility as their talking points” is a business building core value of Francina R. Harrison, MSW also known nationally by her alter ego “The Career Engineer.” Mrs. Harrison, a sought after career management & business building solutions consultant, is the creator of the “Stop Getting Hustled” business building training modules and seminars for new and used business owners. She is also the author of the book “A Mind to Work: the Life and Career Planning Guide for People Who Want Need to Work! The message is simple, “Don’t Get Anxious – Get Prepared”…don’t focus on the economic indicators, focus on your potential…find your competitive edge, sell your “message”, build alliances and execute your custom plan.
It’s this “non-traditional” and “soul” stirring delivery of career and performance consulting that has this Navy spouse and Norfolk State University graduate interviewed on the Tavis Smiley nationally syndicated radio show, the Chicago Tribune, Next Step Magazine and as a featured writer in The Black Collegian Magazine. “Bottom line, most business owners have conquered the “concept” of their business, but failed at planning the “execution.” The Career Engineer continues, “Execution involves finding your niche, developing your market, promoting your brand and building your cadre of crucial relationships. Today’s entrepreneur, must become “self aware”, BEFORE they attend a Chamber or high powered networking event.”
Harrison & Associates, “Home of the Career Engineer” is committed to helping career seekers, career changers, new and existing business owners to reduce their competition and increase their results. Francina R. Harrison concludes, “ We have established FREE and FEE based services via our Career Engineers University 2006 Training & Networking events to give business owners and career changers a fighting chance that echoes our philosophy: Don’t Get Anxious – Get Prepared.”
