Expo To Help Americans Realize Their
No. 1 Goal: Owning A Small Business

>From television commercials to websites to expos and conferences, 
the call to become an entrepreneur is loud and clear. And it's no 
surprise. According to the latest research, owning a business 
has been cited as the number one goal of Americans today. 
Approximately 62,000 small businesses start up on a monthly basis 
nationally, according to the Small Business Administration. Small 
business is a driving force in the United States economy with 
more than 24 million businesses running today, approximately 17 
million of those being sole proprietorships.

"A distinct feature of the current growth of small business is
the rise of one-person operations, by far the fastest growing
segment of the self-employed," said Aggie Kobrin, founder of
Conference and Expo Connections, LLC, which will be holding the
Business Opportunities Series and Expo (BOSS) on Feb. 4 in
Irvine, Calif. "Entrepreneurship has always been a major part of
the American Dream."

Kobrin, who plans on making BOSS a traveling event throughout the
nation, realizes, however, that just creating awareness of the
business opportunities available is not enough for small business
growth and success. Aside from showcasing the different start-up
opportunities available, including franchises, businesses for
sale and network marketing opportunities. The conference will
also feature workshops on how to increase the chances of success
through proper operations, marketing and planning.

"Approximately 80 percent of new businesses fail within the first
three years of starting a business because of inexperience or
lack of proper marketing," said Greg Scott Reid, author of the
best seller, "The Millionaire Mentor".

Reid will be speaking at the event as will television personality
Dr. Letitia Wright, who will tape her nationally syndicated cable
show, "The Wright Place," from the Expo. Other speakers include:

- Mimi Donaldson, business consultant and nationally-renown speaker
  and author
- Vanessa Besack, public relations and marketing consultant
- Steve Burgess, co-author of best-selling book, "Purpose, Passion,
- Rick Eggleton, franchise consultant
- Susan Fiskin,  professional speaker and business coach
- Linda Hollander, author of "Bags to Riches: 7 Success Secrets for
  Women in Business"
- Dawn M. Holman, successful entrepreneur, PR and marketing
  consultant and trainer.

"Our conference is ideal for individuals who currently run a
small business —or aspire to—find the ideas, products and
services to help them build their business successfully," Kobrin

The February event will be the first BOSS event planned for the
western United States in 2006. Additional events are planned for
San Diego, Calif., San Jose, Calif., and the Seattle, Wash. areas
in the spring and fall of 2006.
