Facebook Party v1.0

People use social networking websites for many different reasons. Some to stay in touch with long lost friends... Some to meet business owners/customers...Some to meet new friends.

This past Saturday I was able to help bring some of these people together. I co-hosted my first facebook party. It was a very interesting turnout.

Some people use facebook to socialize....I am trying to use facebook to make some $$$$$

Start Up Grants?

At least once a week someone ask me about Start Up Grants. Where can I obtain them? How can I get money to start a business? In my experience it is very rarely to find grants or organizations that give money in the start up phrase. The PA State of Innovation has a website designed to let residents know about assistance programs. These are mostly grants or low interest loans for businesses/non profits. The grants/loans can be used for Community and Economic development, Entrepreneurial Assistance, Workforce Development assistance and more. For more information log onto:

Why do you need a logo?

A Logo is part of your branding. When you see the Golden Arches what do you think of? McDonalds. In all of their advertising you see a logo of the Golden Arches. People will take you more seriously if your business has a logo. Your business will look more complete with your marketing materials. Stand out, be creative, be different.
