My name is Sue Thoens and I live in beautiful Bend, OR.
On March 14, 2012 my life completely changed. I lost my husband and all we had worked 30 years for. I found myself in my 50's, drowning in debt, and only worth an hourly wage in the marketplace.
I am fortunate to have found a community of seasoned business professionals called T-Biz. We are paying it forward to the Next Generation by empowering them with a business they can run on their cellphone at the speed of life. We coach and mentor them on how to leverage the trends on the internet, e-commerce and social media and create a path to change the course of their lives through side business ownership.
As part of the T-Biz initiative, @The Bend Project was launched in Aug., 2019 dedicating resources to aspiring young people to empower them with a business of their own that can help them build options into their lives and ultimately enable them to build the life they truly desire.
You're probably wondering what to do next. Let's CONNECT!
August 23, 2019 marked the official launch of @TheBendProject. A business effort reaching out and interacting with aspiring people in Bend and Beyond who are interested in business ownership and being mentored.
We are seeking those who are thirsty for more out of life.
TheBendProject asks, "Why not grab your cellphone and learn to play the game of business in the marketplace alongside your career?"
It is simple!
We come alongside you with an education process and discussions to see if entrepreneurship is right for you even if you have never seen yourself owning your own business.
The education process is meeting with some people just like you who have started their own businesses, watching a webcast, reading a few articles, watching videos, and listening to audios. The conversations are designed to identify what is important to YOU, determine what YOU are trying to achieve, and collaborate on HOW we can help you.
We LISTEN. We recognize that our opportunity is a tool and it is not the right tool for everyone.
Should you decide to explore further, the process we use allows a person to move from step to step and SELF-SELECT the options that make the most sense for them at this time.
Like many of our neighbors who have a heart for our young people, our children, and our grandchildren, you may be asking how you can be part of our community.
It is simple.
We are looking for friends to personally refer young people as candidates.
We invite you to join us as together, we make an impact today and for generations to come.
