Announcing the creation our new company: The Toolbox, Inc.
It started as an epiphany…an a-ha moment. And I have the SSWBN (South Shore Women’s Business Network) to thank. I was not planning to go to the monthly May breakfast, but I went anyway, and half way through the introductions it struck me that a number of people were trying to market to a similar group that I wanted to reach. I grabbed one of my friends there, and asked if the idea to provide educational seminars to non-profits seemed like a good idea, and that maybe I would work on expanding the idea.
Putting to use the SSWBN tagline: Contacts, Coaching, and Collaboration, I got together a few people from various backgrounds, tossed ideas around and in two months we launched the parent company, The Tool Box, Inc. to facilitate our many ideas.
The Toolbox was founded from the idea of bring together professionals and use their expertise to help different groups grow personally, professionally, and help create a sense of community for their group. The Non-profit Toolbox is our first venture.
Everywhere we turn there is a non-profit trying to educate, raise awareness, and raise funds for their cause, and our vision is to create a place where that information can be found easily via the web, providing workshops and seminars, and creating an environment for networking (both on and offline). Bringing businesses and non-profit groups together, and everyone grows.
Thank you SSWBN Education Foundation for supporting our first event, and Lisa Morrissey, (Lido Consulting Group), Janel Kesten (New England Reprographics), Elizabeth Pineault (Pineault, CPA), and Tom (TRB Design, Inc.) for joining me in this venture, and Jane Ford (Joy Path Learning), Kathleen Burns-Kingsbury (KBK Connections, Inc.), and Susan Hammond (scHammond Advisors) for joining us with our first event and new adventure.
Hope everyone can come or be a sponsor!!
The Non-Profit Toolbox’s first seminar and workshop for non-profit organizations will be held on October 22, 2009, from 8:00 AM – 12:30 PM at The Holiday Inn, Rockland, MA.
