Has the economy got you thinking that it's time to create your own business? Why not tackle the global financial crisis head-on and become an entrepreneur? If you want to know more about where to start and what resources are available, this event is for you.
This community-building conversation was hosted by the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum and WBEZ business and economy reporter Adriene Hill. They talked with experts about how and where fledgling businesses can get help and what the federal stimulus plan means for aspiring entrepreneurs.
Hard Working is an interactive series from WBEZ about jobs and joblessness. Using the radio, the internet, and face-to-face conversations, WBEZ starts and encourages conversations about work and unemployment. WBEZ follows job seekers through the ins and outs of the job hunt, finds out who's hiring and who's firing, and talks about what “work” means to you and to people around the region.
Recorded Wednesday, June 24, 2009 at Jane Addams Hull-House Museum.
