Volunteering with Sierra Commons opened some wonderful new opportunities for me: it generated new business from fellow entrepreneurs who needed my services, enabled me to obtain helpful services from members, and significantly extended my network in the community. Who would have thought so much benefit could come from a small number of volunteer hours? That's the power of networking at Sierra Commons!
Chuck is a great writer and helped us get media exposure for our work with the Park Ave. High School wood shop program, helped create PR material for the Business Ignitor Course, and highlighted some of our members business accomplishments. Chuck now has so much paid work that he is focusing all of his energy serving his clients. We are so happy that Sierra Commons had the opportunity to work with such an inspiried individual.
Contact Chuck here and let us know if you would like to volunteer too. We can work together to create a win-win situation for both of us.
