Business Incubators and Small Business
As a full time professional tenant in a business incubator, we at SCM enjoy all of the same services as does any professionally staffed office. Our working environment even includes built-in networking opportunities!
Business incubators are formal programs designed to support the successful development of entrepreneurial companies through an array of business support resources and services. Those services are developed and orchestrated by a management team sponsored by the local community, with the objective of stimulating the local economy.
Business incubators started to flourish in the mid to late nineties along with the hi-tech boom. Not surprisely, many believe incubators primarily serve the hi-tech industry but in fact, there are many niche incubators and others that work with a wide range of businesses...and their success rate is pretty high!Justin interviews Paula Connelly, Program Manager and Director of the Women's Business Center at the Renaissance Entrepreneurship Center, and Sharon Miller, the CEO of the Center since 1999.Paula Connelly manages the Business Incubator program and the Virtual Incubator program which is a pool of consultants providing case management directly to clients, including outreach, needs assessment and feedback.

So many of us lack focus... Let me rephrase that… many of us lack goal setting. When we are planning a trip the first thing we do is figure out the driving time and consult a map. If we are flying we immediately go online and start the pricing game. We general plan who and what we are going to see… what we are going to do… where we going to go… and how we are going to get it all done…. That’s the nature of the beast. I often ask myself, why is it so easy to plan a trip but so hard to your life. It’s not hard, life happens to us every day which make it a bit difficult to plan but it’s not hard.
As the owner of Enhance U Image and Success Coaching, I mentor and coach individuals and small groups on goal setting and visualizing. I help them create vision boards and goal posters. A goal poster deal with six major areas. Health, Education, Business, Personal, Finance and Spiritual. A vision board is as stated, it has all the things you visualize for your life…..ie… the type car you want to drive, the house you want to live in your new business name, the income you would like to make and so on.
Here on Curves In 3D Radio we are going to talk about having a successful 2015 through Goal Setting… you can call in and share one of your goals for 2015 and we will have one of the host to call and hold you accountable… that’s RIGHT you will have an accountability partner in the Hosts of Curves In 3D Radio.

Join us Thursday Dec 25 7pm EST (Friday 9am Japanese Time) at Divination Radio with your hosts, Fiona Benjamin (Chinese-American Diviner) and Houngan Michael Lennon (Cartomancer).
This week we are going to be discussing how to kick up your divination up a notch and start up a business as a professional reader. We will share some of our personal experiences as professional readers in order to give you a realistic idea of what to expect. We will be answering very common questions such as
How much should I charge?
Where do I begin? Do I read in person or over the internet? Should I work for a hotline?
Where do I even get clients?
How can I come up with a code of ethics or set personal boundaries?
What are some resources available to me?
How can I manage harassment from religious groups, disruptive clients, or competitors?
What are some ways I can best market myself to the public?
Should I do this part time or full time?
And much more...
Join us live in the chat room and you can even ask us your own questions for us to answer on the air.
For live listeners, we will also be doing a giveaway of the Fortune Stellar book by Christiana Guadet, the first book ever written about becoming a professional tarot reader.
With Bob Granger playing the Grinch I guess that'll leave me to play Santa...
Another unique show coming up on December 25th at 8:30 PM Eastern SHEEP Time that includes Coffee, Sleigh Bells, Copper and a stray Horse or two. Listen to how small business owners can be your bread and butter.
If you look at those most successful in Network Marketing typically you'll find small business owners. Do you want to know how to attract them? How to get them as your customers? And how to share with them in such a way they'll be asking you to join. Imagine that....no begging.
