The recession has driven many to consider what they may not have before: starting a business of their own. For these people, Ventureneer.com developed a series of three FREE webinars to help aspiring entrepreneurs sort through whether the risks and hard work are worth the rewards of being their own boss and in control of their financial destiny:
- Entrepreneurship: Is It for Me?
- Ways Entrepreneur Wannabes Can Determine What Kind of Business to Start

- There Is Never a Bad Time to Start Up a Company

Here’s one more interesting piece of insight: Education, according to the Kauffman Foundation, Small Business Administration, and World Economic Forum increases small business and nonprofit survival rates and prosperity. From my own experience: I saw a surge in the number of people taking my entrepreneurship class at The New School in the fall of 2008, which led the university to add an additional class over the summer. In other words, if you’re thinking of venture creation right now, you are in good–and plentiful–company.
