National Encore Entrepreneur Day (Oct. 2)

Join us in one week for National Encore Entrepreneur Mentor Day.  
Date: October 2, 2012
Location: Seton Hill University, Greensburg, PA

What's an encore entrepreneur? 
Someone who starts a business after leaving or retiring from another career path. 

If you're over the age of 40 and interested in receiving free information on the nuts and bolts of starting your own business, join us for this no-cost even.
Featured entrepreneurs include a former Mrs. USA, a fashion designer, and a health service executive who have all started "encore" careers by entering the business world after celebrating their fortieth birthday.

 Come out to hear their stories and learn about starting your own business.

Featured Entrepreneurs: 
  • Steve Cohen: Keystone By Design
  • Laura Roy: Laura Roy's Doll House, The Comfy
  • Melanie Patterson, Former Mrs. USA & Former Mrs. Pennsylvania: Retro Retreat
  • Dawn Chamberlain: Jean Marie's Flowers & Gifts
National Encore Entrepreneur Mentor Day is part of a larger effort by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) to promote entrepreneurship among individuals ages 50 and older. With one in four individuals ages 44 to 70 interested in becoming entrepreneurs and 63 percent of Americans planning to work during retirement, small business ownership is a good option. Small business owners with long-term counselors see bigger sales, hire more workers, and last longer.

There is no fee to attend this event, but please secure your spot by registering in advance.
