Event Details


Having trouble finding a job and vocational school is not for you, then create a job.  A real, paying, legal entity by turn your hobby or interests into a job.  Lenny Kravitz did it, so did Jay-Z, Martha Stewart, Robert DeNiro and many more. Being a star or pro player doesn’t mean you will always have a job or enough money.  For many people, improving their financial stability has been achieved by going into business for themselves.  Some people may call it a side gig, being a contractor or what is most commonly known as becoming an entrepreneur or a personal job creator!
