Everyone has a dream project or idea they need to bring to the world. The reason most people never make this idea a reality is because they don’t know where to start, they lack the motivation, the know how or the support to just take that first step.
That’s why Women 2.0 is such an important organization. Women 2.0 knows that with mentoring, support and a dynamic community behind you, you’re far more likely to develop and build your business.
$100 Can Change Your World.
These days, it’s easier than ever to start something for under $100. In a day or less you can buy a domain name, get hosting and set up a WordPress custom theme website and be selling your services or a digital product through PayPal.
There are really no excuses to get started. Except people still keep making them. They’re waiting for some day, for perfection, for the ideal time to make a start. Well guess what, that day never comes. And that’s a crying shame because there are too many dream ideas being deposited into the dream bank and not enough withdrawals.
Here’s my wish for aspiring women entrepreneurs – to take $100 (and not blow it on shoes this month) but instead use it to invest in themselves and others in one simple step.
I created a movement that not only gives you a blueprint for creating change, but a framework of motivation, mentoring and a community to get it done.
$100 Change is a program empowering you to start your dream project or business in 100 days for $100. So I have pulled together 100 change makers from around the world, to share and impart their wisdom and advice over 100 days for $100. You will hear from Janet Hanson, Danielle LaPorte, Chris Guillebeau, Chris Brogan, Laura Roeder, Michael Stelzner, Susan Butler, Cameron Herold, Steve Kamb, Jonathan Fields, Clay Collins, Pamela Slim, Amy Porterfield, Corbett Barr, Lewis Howes, Pat Flynn, Nathalie Lussier, Christine Kloser, Adam Baker, Johnny B Truant, Pam Brossman, Derek Halpern, Alexis Neely and a host of amazing change makers from the world over.
But $100 Change is so much more than a program designed to get you to take action and start something special.
It is also is a not-for-profit initiative that is driven by you, me and a community of people who want to create change and turn their dreams into reality. Virtually all the money received from people who buy the $100 Change program (minus associated costs in putting it together) during the 100 program will be redistributed back into ten scholarships. So you spend $100 and you have a chance to receive it back tenfold.
Why not take one small step by checking out the $100 Change program.
