SABMiller Sustaining Small & Microbusinesses
Crowd funding or crowdfunding (alternately crowd financing, equity crowdfunding, or hyper funding) describes the collective effort of individuals who network and pool their money, usually via the Internet, to support efforts initiated by other people or organizations.Crowd funding is used in support of a wide variety of activities, including disaster relief, citizen journalism, support of artists by fans, political campaigns, startup company funding,movieor free software development, inventions development and scientific research.
Crowd funding can also refer to the funding of a company by selling small amounts of equity to many investors. This form of crowd funding has recently received attention from policymakers in the United States with direct mention in the JOBS Act; legislation that allows for a wider pool of small investors with fewer restrictions.
The JOBS Act was signed into law by President Obama on April 5, 2012. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has been given approximately 270 days to set forth specific rules and guidelines that enact this legislation, while also ensuring the protection of investors. Some rules have already been proposed by the SEC.

When the time is right there are a few things that will suggest to you that you are at the point of Break Through in your life, business, where wealth is concerned for you, and when you’re about to truly impact community! Time and time again micro, solo and main street business owners are going through this process of getting to “Break Through”. Some of us reach that point quickly — for others, it takes years. Regardless of what category you and I fall in — it’s got to happen.
Here are a few things to focus your energy on:
1. Break Through is already present (consistency is the key to Break Through)
2. Having a foundation of like-minded support and financial stability will help you establish your dreams quickly
3. Don’t stop dreaming (continue to turn up the volume on your thoughts & passions)
The economy is going to do what it’s going to do, but in the midst of all that STUFF —
when the time is right . . . . .BREAK THROUGH!
Just a little something something to Fuel Your Aspirations!
