"Under 10% of all new Businesses survive their first 10 Years!"
Why I do (Purpose)
I believe that if most people could work in a field they really enjoyed, this world would be an even better place.
1 Million new businesses get created in the USA alone every year but over 90% of all new businesses fail in their first 10 years ...
That is a shocking number. Can you imagine all the broken dreams, the countless hours wasted, the families devasted, the brave ones humiliated, the money lost?
I would like to help to decrease the number of new businesses failing every year. I will do that by helping Internet entrepreneurs to grow their business profits online by at least 10% per year.
I believe the best place to build a new business is on the Internet and here are a number of reasons for it. Some are that an Internet business is easily built in steps, with little upfront cost, little financial commitment.
The Internet is booming and growing massively and your business can be shown to millions of potential customers wherever you live.
I have teamed up with a growing number of likeminded entrepreneurs | managers and we are currently building www.Internet-Experts-Live.com (iEL) a network community hub. iEL connects entrepreneurs with Internet experts and business coaches to help them expand their business quickly.
We believe that in world of modern telecommunication, Network Communities provide the optimal way to connect the right people and from a search engine point of view they are the most effective strategy to get to Google's top pages.
In iEL, Entrepreneurs will accelerate with appropriate advice from Experts who understand the business situation they are in. Coaches will help entrepreneurs to stay on track.
Sometimes to be able to ask someone knowledgeable or run a problem by them can propel you forward, whereas on your own, you would be stuck for hours or days, getting less motivated every minute.
Example: I recently read a manual for a a simple irrigation system and I read it again and again. After the third time ... I still didn't understand how to set the irrigation times (and think I am usually pretty good in reading manuals). So I called the experts, Gardena, the irrigation system company. Their support person needed about 3 minutes to tell me how it works and I irrigated happily thereafter.
If entrepreneurs could just pick up the phone or go to an advice hub online to get some immediate guidance, I am pretty sure this would vastly increase the numbers of successful entrepreneurs and decrease the large sums of money lost.
That is why we are building the 'iEL network - community - hub', connecting online entrepreneurs with Internet experts and business coaches. The Entrepreneur has the vision, the Expert the appropriate advice and the Coach the means to keep the entrepreneur on track to his/her goals.
- Network, where we share and discuss the best Social Network Web 2.0 techniques to promote ones brand and business,
Communities have long been powerful resources offline and are just beginning to demonstrate the opportunities they provide online. We believe almost all entrepreneur, small, medium or large company will be able to tap into that community power if done right. However if not done right, they will pay a hefty price as some companies like AOL, Walmart, Sony and others already have demonstrated.
