The session is open to everyone, however only the first 15 participants to register will have the opportunity to interact with Mitra.
"My message to everyone facing a job crisis and tough times has been and continues to be: Take control of your destiny," shares Sramana Mitra. "This is a good time to explore being in business yourself. Many great companies have been founded during downturns and recessions. Many people have found their way into self-employment during difficult times. For those who are new to this way of life, I want to provide some positive momentum, inspiration and encouragement, as well as teach them the ropes of entrepreneurship."
The forum is free to all participants and will be run on the Dimdim Web Conferencing platform. Dimdim is the easy, open, and affordable web conference company -- providing free and low cost tools to enable everyone to meet freely.
