I am really excited about the International Association of Solopreneurs. The IAS has been operating since September of 2008, on Monday, July 18, 2011 the IAS grew up and became the International Association of YOU! Why you ask?
Our members told us they wanted to have a more engaging community, which was not possible on our old site. In addition, we have watched many small business owners work to build a platform for their VOICE to attract their peeps.  Not always successfully.  We decided to build a community that encouraged businesses to use the platform that feels safe for them and give them the resources, tools and coaching around developing their voice to impact their audience.  We are not stopping there.  We are taking it to another level by helping these business owners by promoting their VOICE and giving them the blueprints to follow so they can leverage that voice and promotion.
It was important to me to create a place where small business owners can benefit from collaboration and community.  My passion, why I do what I do, is all about helping others to thrive.
You can read about my WHY and how I stay engaged as well as many others in this month’s issue of Solopreneur Solutions for Life and Business.

About the Author: Donna Amos

I believe you can achieve anything you truly want to achieve. “It might sound trite, but time and time again, I’ve seen it happen with my clients. They overcome the fear of exposing themselves to the possibility of failure to creating profitable exciting businesses. My clients do great work, and sometimes it only takes someone else believing in them to give them the confidence to step out and take the chance.”
