Atlanta, GA (PressExposure) October 29, 2009 -- Build A Thriving Business Network, a small business development platform, is will officially launch on November 1, 2009. The network was conceived in conjunction with the creation of the business development program, BATBOYâ¢ (Build A Thriving Business in One Year). BATBOYâ¢ is a seven-step action plan and support services, designed to help entrepreneurs to strategically grow their business over the course of twelve months.
Rebecca McClain, founder of Build A Thriving Business Network and creator of BATBOYâ¢ is a certified business coach who has been working with small business owners since 1992. She realizes that entrepreneurs, regardless of where they are in the growth cycle, need to develop a strategic plan for significant success.
While most entrepreneurs are smart and capable, they are too often mired in information overload and confused about how to apply it in moving their business forward. BATBOYâ¢ takes them through a step-by-step program which allows them to grow and develop their business without becoming overwhelmed.
âThe mission of Build A Thriving Business Network is to a primary source for leading-edge information, education and training that will actually help businesses to thrive without breaking their budget. Our emphasis is placed on the word âstrategicâ because if you fail to plan you plan to fail. The Network is a place to âConnect, Grow, Learn and Thriveâ. These elements relate to building strong businesses and developing value-added relationships,â says Rebecca.
The Network website, [http://www.buildathrivingbusiness.net], has an interactive community that allows members to connect with other business owners through the U.S., and internationally, to share common interests, form partnerships and exchange information. Members and the public can post comments on the blog, which features articles from subject matter experts. They can also post comments and creates topics on the message boards as well as contact members.
On the first Tuesday of each month from 7:00pm to 8:15pm EST, Rebecca hosts a Self-employed Womenâs Teleforum. This business âroundtableâ provides a safe place for female entrepreneurs to talk about their challenges, successes and brainstorm solutions. Whether they are the owner of a business start-up or seasoned entrepreneur, the open forum and featured presenter provide a learning experience that will help take their business to the next level. They leave the teleconference feeling supported and inspired to do more and think bigger than ever before. Men are also welcome to join the Teleforum.
The Network has two membership levels. The basic membership is free and the premium membership is fee-based. Both membership levels provide great benefits that will help owners grow their business. The premium membership gives their business greater visibility and exclusive access and discounts to specific offerings.
In celebration of the November 1, 2009 official launch of [http://www.buildathrivingbusiness.net], women and minority business owners can join at the premium level at absolutely no charge.
