What an incredible day it was last Wednesday, February 5th at the Joseph Project 2010 Advance Workshop! There was great anticipation during the weeks leading up to this kickoff event. Seems like what you hear is how the economy is recovering. That may be true in some some quarters, but there are many others who are still trying to recover from the loss of their job. Another 300 people in fact were released from Wal-Mart the day of our event.
The room was packed with close to 100 people participating in the event. Lots of people came who had never been to a Joseph Project meeting before who hopefully have now found a welcoming environment that will provide helpful job search skills, networking opportunities, as well as hope and encouragement.
The program was very powerful. So much content was packed into these few hours that my head was about to explode by the end of all the sessions. It was clear that the presenters came fully loaded with their best stuff in an all out effort to help in any way they could. It is such an encouragement to see the heart of these people who only want to help and are willing to give so much. Thank you to all the speakers and panelists who went all out to make our sessions rich with practical comments and real world advice.
Friends, we are really counting on you to help us get the word out about the Joseph Project. No doubt you know someone who would benefit from attending. Please invite them and if at all possible, tell them you will come with them. YOU are the most powerful marketing tool we possess. Tell your church, community groups and any other organizations you are involved with about this opportunity to help so many that are traveling this difficult path of job loss. Please help us to get the word out that this is not a path you have to travel alone. Do it today!
