And I realized that if more people knew how powerful this is as a business strategy, it would give entrepreneurs a huge advantage in the marketplace, no matter what field they're in.

The future of a business is rarely decided by a contest… that is, unless Melanie Benson Strick is behind it. Strick, the award-winning business coach and founder of Success Connections, has just announced a contest that will give one lucky entrepreneur an all-access pass to the next Virtual Team Building Tele-Bootcamp, which begins April 2nd. VTBB tickets normally sell for $1997, and the program is always sold out. This "bootcamp" is actually a 10-week program taught via webinar that teaches small business owners all the systems they need to hire a virtual team, and the most effective areas to utilize them.
To enter the contest, entrants will need to answer two questions about why they need to build a virtual team, and how the VTBB will help them accomplish their goals. The contest begins Feb. 11 and runs until Feb.18 at noon PST. The Grand Prize winner will be announced on Feb. 26, along with 2 runner-up prizes.
The business practice of utilizing virtual teams has been picking up speed over the past two years, and has been changing the face of enterprise as a result. The greatest effect has been seen with small businesses, where staying in budget matters the most. A virtual team can bring relief by providing valuable services on a "pay for what you get" basis, which in turn frees up the business owner to pursue other goals - such as market expansion, adding other services or products, and building a steady stream of income.
Strick has spent the last several years helping business owners get on track and stay in the black, including her own business. But for herself and many other successful entrepreneurs, true success didn't really begin until she realized she couldn't continue to do everything on her own without her business suffering, and her personal life paying the price.
"I know for myself, my business really took off once I started working with a virtual team," says Strick. "And I realized that if more people knew how powerful this is as a business strategy, it would give entrepreneurs a huge advantage in the marketplace, no matter what field they're in."
That's what led Strick to do a series of interviews with five leading entrepreneurs to see where they were spending their time and energy, and how they seemed to get things done so fast. Those interviews eventually developed into the Virtual Team Building Bootcamp as a training ground for entrepreneurs who want to capitalize on this new trend.
The contest is open to the public, but you must be registered to participate. The registration form can be found at http://www.virtualteambuildingtelebootcamp.com/vtbbcontest.
