Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) June 22, 2011
The Small Business Network was recently launched by graduates of University of Phoenix School of business looking for ways to make advertising more affordable to small businesses, start-ups, churches and non-profit organizations. Built on a new philosophy not to put profits above the welfare of consumers; they decided to commit to give 30% of all profits back to the community with a focus on encouraging economic growth.
Whether giving out gas vouchers to consumers, or helping that struggling organization that have tremendous impact on their community with grants; SBN main focus is to provide that extra support. Small Businesses are the economic engines of our economy and providing affordable advertising and support will help boost sales growth, and in turn increase hiring. Charities organizations are also important to people still suffering from the effects of the economic downturn. America should return to the philosophy of John F. Kennedy when he said “Ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country.
Today, Congress has created an environment where you have to pull yourself out with less government programs, and massive government lay-offs. We should not longer sit around and wait maybe another 5 or 20 years for the government to boost economic conditions. There are seven things we as Americans can do right now to boost the economy. We should first buy from Small Businesses more, and support non-profit organizations. Small companies should be encouraged to become more competitive by investing in advertising. Consumers should seek to buy more American made products. More Americans should, like T.D. Jakes said “Be producers not consumers.”
Small companies and organizations need to network more and work together; they should merge and utilize each other’s products and services. We must also encourage entrepreneurship, and entrepreneurs should strive to set new standards in the business community. Americans should no longer allow zealous college graduates to not use what they work so hard to learn during college. Therefore, pioneers of SBN decided to also work with other peers to create partnerships among college alumni to provide opportunities for graduates that did not receive that high paying job expected after graduating.
Most major companies reject recent graduates ignoring the talents and potential college alumni possesses. College Alumni that become entrepreneurs can now prove they have the potential to flourish and have influence on the business community. The Small Business Network’s vision is to have the Oprah "O" effect on small businesses.
