CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Last year 565,000 new businesses were started each month in the United States. This figure represents the highest level of entrepreneurship over the past decade and a half and looks to be a continuing trend. Individuals interested in being a part of this upward start are invited to attend a free, one-hour webinar offered by UNI's MyEntre.Net entrepreneurship program.

The webinar, "I know I Can Do It! (I Just Don't Know What 'IT' is Yet!), will be presented by Maureen Collins-Williams, director of the UNI Regional Business Center, at noon on Thursday, June 9. According to Collins-Williams, many aspiring entrepreneurs have heard about the daunting things associated with being their own boss, such as the long hours and high risk, but there are also many positives. Taking that leap into business ownership begins with figuring out the right business to start and moving on from there.

Interested individuals can attend this webinar to learn about current entrepreneurial trends and how to help identify the business best suited to their success. MyEntre.Net webinars are free, interactive, online seminars on topics of interest to small business owners. To attend this webinar, participants must create a free MyEntre.Net account.

MyEntre.Net, administered by UNI's Regional Business Center, is a publicly funded online community for Iowa entrepreneurs that brings small business owners, service providers and capital together in one simple, single gateway.
