I believe that we are at a moment of great opportunity! Ignore any nay-sayers who tell you otherwise! While we are undeniably facing tremendous flux in how we work and live, we should take heart in knowing that we have faced challenges throughout our great history. No matter the challenge, we have always survived as a nation, and even found ways to thrive! Just look at some of our greatest inventors and entrepreneurs. They found gaps in products or services and created enterprises to fill those gaps. We can do that again; and we can do it right here!
It may take a bit more training. It may mean learning new skills. That’s ok. Our brains were meant to expand. LOL!
We are so fortunate in our area to have a community college. Not many rural communities have the opportunity to acquire the skills that they need so close to home.
West Virginia Northern Community College has a long list of course offerings that can support your career goals. Give them a call, as many classes start soon! https://wvncc.coursestorm.com/browse.
That being said…dreams don’t materialize without planning, hard work and training. To that end, the Wetzel-Tyler Chamber will be offering the highly acclaimed “Co-Starters” entrepreneur program in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for details. https://www.costarters.co/
Also, coming soon for members only, we will be offering “Lunch & Learn” sessions. If you are a member, watch your email for the schedule. In-office attendees will be provided lunch. This will also be offered via Zoom.
Here’s wishing everyone a wonderful and productive school year!
