    Helping the community!!

    jazz5514 Newbie

      Hi Everyone! First of all my name is Jasmyn And im 19 years old. I'm currently in college trying to get A degree in human resource management. (Is This A good Degree To Get?) Anywho, the city I am from there is not much activity or oppertunities available to everyone and I want to change that! I want to start a business that helps the community! (helping people get on their feet, helping people find jobs, getting into college, bringing carnivals and festivals to town, and etc. Basically giving my City oppertunity again. Where do I start with All this? (As far as business name, loans, employees, donations, etc.) I am a very determined person so I refuse to give up on this idea. Im also looking for A business owner in somewhat of the same field as a mentor for me. Any feedback would be great, thanks!

          Well I appreciate your initiative to make it big not only in your life but overall helping the community as a whole to chase their dreams. These consulting job have their importance under the current scenario, but you need to have full fledged knowledge or information to carry out your work with ease. Also you need to create business plan in advance to run your work, Therefore many financial organizations are working to uplift the condition of small businesses through instant loan or other ways. But do little market research & go for the best.

              Jay, I believe in Volunteering. I do a LOT of volunteering.

              Why do I volunteer. To give back to the community that has been so good to me and my family.

              Volunteering is HARD. Don't get me wrong. I love to volunteer.

              When I (you) volunteer I have experienced a variety of different opportunities.

              I have been fortunate that some fit me well (and can help my business grow).

              By volunteering, I have met and worked with exceptional people and

              found out about exciting NEW challenges.

              I am a morning person. I get a lot done before 10 A M. Yes the internet helps.


              Volunteering is NOT work. It should be enjoyable (and sometimes you get rewarded)

              It goes FULL CIRCLE

              Additionally, as Luckiest stated, don't discount the idea of volunteering in your community.  Not only will you be building future possible business relationships, gaining experience and giving back to your community, you will be adding valuable experience to add to a resume.
