Grant support – vote needed

As most of you know, I am very passionate about helping small businesses succeed.  Today small business is the backbone of the US economy. Please review the following statistics:

  • There are an estimated 29.6 million small businesses
  • They employ over half of the country’s private sector workforce
  • Hire 40% of high tech workers
  • Represent 97.3% of all the exporters of goods
  • Represent 99.7% of all employer firms
  • Generate a majority of the innovations that come from the United States

 

Now the bad news: small business has a failure rate of between 50%-70%. How much better would our nation be if an additional 10% of small businesses survived, grew and became profitable?

The type of support needed:

  • Has to be affordable
  • Has to be consistent (ongoing)
  • Has to be immediately applicable
  • Must provide unique  networking opportunities
  • Must assist in developing business and marketing plans
  • Must have an accountability factor
  • Must offer pertinent education
  • Must have weekly challenges
  • Must offer  interaction with a “live mentor”
  • Plus so much more.

For the past four years I have been working on developing such a support system, through many trials and errors I believe I finally have the right solution. The process is expensive but will be worth the effort.

You can help in two ways:

  1. 1.       I have applied for a grant. Part of the process to be considered is obtaining a minimum of 250 votes before June 19th 2015.(votes are needed to show the degree of interest to the people making the grant) Please go to https://shar.es/120Zt3  and vote for Strategic Duck. Tell your friends and data base about my project and ask them to vote.
  2. 2.       Self-funding for this project is possible; my main source of funding is my real estate company. I have a goal of 20 sales in the next four months which will allow me to start the new company. You can also help by sending me referrals ( buyers or sellers). The commissions earned will be used to kick-off “Business Tuesday” which will be under the Strategic Duck umbrella.
