Guest host, Ben Jones, fills in this week

In Alan’s absence this week he has asked a previous guest host, Ben Jones, to fill in on the broadcast for “Successfully Unemployed.”

Ben Jones has his PHR in Human resources and has worked the last several years as a headhunter and outplacement specialist for Career Development Partners. As the times were very tough in the job market, so too the job market caught up with Mr. Jones and he was released from his job. Ben found himself in the same position as the people he was helping…unemployed and looking for work.

While seeking employment, Ben decided to start his own business. Having been self-employed in the past, Ben had some idea of what and how to start a business. Ben Jones discusses the process and pains of starting a business, as well as share concepts that will be most helpful for persons wishing to take the self-employed route. Topics will include:

  • Finances
  • Developing a business plan
  • Developing a mission statement and objectives
  • Market analysis
  • Mistakes and common misconception of being self employed
  • Keeping an open mind about opportunities

Please tune in and enjoy this discussion this week on Successfully Unemployed with special guest Ben Jones.
