-A +A

The Money Makers Club Business Plan Writing Workshop at the Brooklyn Public Library, Bedford Branch on January 12th, was a tremendous hit!   It was the kickoff in a series of workshops that the Money Makers Club’s group on will be presenting throughout the year.  The workshop entitled, “Write Your Own Business Plan -- Taking It To The Bank,” was a FREE full-day, interactive workshop where participants wrote their own business plan outlines under the instruction of ACCION New York & New Jersey facilitator, Melissa Hall, and received valuable information on how to effectively put their business plans to use. 

Rosalie Rance, COO and Vice President of Marketing and Membership for the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, gave a very useful and informative presentation about the resources available to small business owners and those who are interested in starting their own business.  Rance was very impressed with the turnout and the enthusiasm of the attendees.  “I am pleased to see such a successful turnout for this workshop.  Anyone who will come out on a Saturday morning in the winter to get information to help grow their business, has to be serious about succeeding,” stated Rance. 

Tony Herbert, CEO of The Professionals Network Organization, a profuse and relentless advocate for an “Ownership society,” stressed the vital importance of home, property and business ownership in the community. Herbert is currently running for State Senate.

Other presenters included Greg Jones, Vice President of USA Closers Inc. and author of the new book, “Winning the Credit  Game,” celebrity business coach, Andrew Morrison, CEO of Small Business Camp, who teaches how to start and/or grow your own business in 90 days and author of “21 Questions That Can Build Your Business in 90 Days,” celebrity business coach, Joe Nunziata  , author of “Spiritual Selling,” Networking guru, Phil Andrews  mc’d the event and Tony Herbert, CEO of The Professionals Network Organization co-hosted the event with The Phenomenal Women Group, Inc..

At the end of this workshop, everyone who participated left with a winning business plan outline and had the opportunity to mingle with other attendees and meet the presenters.  Rave reviews are still pouring in as a result of the successful event.

Sandra Catena, belly dance instructor shared with BSN, “I was feeling down because my business was so slow.  But after the Money Makers Club workshop, I had a consultation with Andrew Morrison.  And as a result, two famous TOP studios who get top billing and have celebrity clients have contacted me.  One is in LA and is very interested in me.  The other one is very interested, as well.  Both are coming to my class to see my work.  Also, two other prestigious studios, are interested in hiring me.  Andrew also steered me in the right direction toward self-publishing my book! Joe Nunziata was excellent. He is electric. I bought Joe's book, “Spiritual Selling.”  It's excellent.  He talks about clearing the chakras and how to do it. I never would have met these people without The Money Makers Club Meetup.  Thank you, Brenda, for the hook-up.  Great workshop!  When’s the next one?” 

Other guests found the event “informative,” ” empowering,”  “inspiring,” “well organized,” and “an absolute blast!”
Fresh strawberries and other delicious fruits and finger delicacies including fresh baked cupcakes, hot coffee and cold water were served.

About the Money Makers Club
The Money Makers Club, brainchild of Brenda Jeanne Wyche, CEO of Winning Strategies & Associates and President of The Phenomenal Women Group, NY Chapter, was created on in December, 2007 to perform as a catalyst for start ups and emerging small businesses to receive the right kind of help to grow their business, and make their journey to success a profitable and enjoyable experience.  “They say ‘it’s lonely at the top,’ but that doesn’t have to be true, if you have the right people around you on your way up.  Growing a successful business should be an adventure, full of wonder and discovery.  Admittedly, there are challenges, but the journey should, nevertheless, be an enjoyable experience for the most part, that garners big cash rewards.  We believe our partnership with the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce will help us reach such goals,” says Wyche.
