Workshop: Making the Living You Want, Living Wherever You Want”


What’s the best a rural community can do for itself based on the best innovations already working for other rural communities? How do we learn what works in other communities?
What can communities of rural communities do to support one another? (We share the opportunity to gather and share the best innovations as they emerge on an ongoing basis.)


This three-hour workshop session will show how easily one can create a free ecommerce web site, affiliate programs and more.  Frank Odasz will present online lessons to help you learn what’s working for others like you regarding eBay, online auctions, entry-level ecommerce and telework.  Modeling The Montana Choice customized employment project this workshop will provide new choices for entry-level, web-based, self-employment training to rural citizens. Promising practices will be shared for developing rural leadership strategies to initiate widespread community skills transfer using peer-mentoring programs. As a network coordinator you will be able to share these resources and skills with your CAP site coordinators who in turn are able to share them with CAP site clients.

The first half of the workshop will present key concepts, resources, and case studies, and the second half of the workshop will be hands-on where attendees will create their own free ecommerce websites which they’ll be able to easily maintain themselves from any computer after the workshop.

After attending this workshop you’ll be armed with rich rural community Internet economic development resources, including community action plans, community grant templates, and step-by-step online lessons for generating local entry-level web-based self-employment and ecommerce opportunities
that can be shared         throughout communities through local CAP sites.
