Although the declines are beginning to moderate, there are still job losses reported in major industries (U.S. Bureau of Labor).

With the support of these two organizations and the guidance of Barb Girson, participants can only succeed:
1) Jewish Family Services, a nationally accredited mental health, workforce, and social service agency that has been helping individuals and families, in both the Jewish and general community, face life’s challenges for nearly 100 years (2008).
2) Like Minded Moms, a networking group that strives to help their members grow their business beyond beliefs.
This innovative program, “Discover Your Inner Entrepreneur™”(DYIE), is an opportunity for interested entrepreneurs to attend, explore & determine if being an empowered, enterprising entrepreneur is for them! Barb has been a successful multi-million dollar business entrepreneur for 12 years and has a decade of senior management corporate experience. This program grew from Girson’s personal experience.
When Barb Girson was downsized one year ago from her last corporate position, she participated in the SUCCESS PROGRAM, which helps downsized workers find gainful employment. This JFS program offered tremendous support during her transition, and the current economic environment caused her to get creative. “I decided to take charge of my career and document my steps to teach others. No longer will my fate be determined by a board room decision,” says Girson. She decided she would take charge of her career and document her steps to teach others. No longer will her fate be determined by a board room decision. She developed a training program to help empower others to start their own business. To staff her firm, she is turning to other downsized workers to fill sales and marketing roles.
Teaming up with organizations such as, Like Minded Moms, and the Jewish Family Services has been one way to extend her reach and quickly establish her business. To show her appreciation, Barb contributes 10% of the course proceeds to Jewish Family Services.
