Idea-vi-ability. Where the Idea, Your Ability & Business Viability Meet.

(( ( ( the entrepreneurial connection ) ) ))


Work  hard.   Work smart.   Enjoy  the  journey.

   Approximately 10 million Americans involved in starting a new business at any given time, according to the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. It would be safe to say that a healthy percentage of your listening audience is involved in some aspect of the entrepreneurial journey, regardless of where they are in the world. The entrepreneurial pursuit is the stuff of life.

   The Entrepreneurial Connection has been developed by The Freeman Institute® Foundation (501c3) to gently challenge every school (Jr. High, Sr. High, College and University), church, community-based organization, prison, mentoring group, Job Corps site and community-based organization to develop an entrepreneur club. The goal is to inspire our next generation to dream big, research the marketplace and then to implement their viable business plans. Entrepreneur clubs provide the kind of greenhouse-like environment necessary to grow up well-rounded business people who have designed and cultivated their lives to live with integrity and purpose.

   Dr. Freeman has created the book/workbook combination designed to connect the contents of his book to specific audiences. The book/workbook combination will give the necessary tools for organizations to start an entrepreneur club or to enhance an already existing entrepreneur club.

   The book has been endorsed by Steve Forbes, Ken Blanchard, Les Brown, Brian Tracy, Cathy Hughes, Ben Carson, George Fraser and many other business experts...

What Makes This Book Unique?


(1) personal vulnerability – business failures and successes are honestly and realistically discussed, providing a reading experience to which the average person can relate. No pie-in-the-sky.

(2) evocative content – the general response from readers is wildly enthusiastic. One reader said, “This is not a good book to start at 10pm. I read this book throughout the night and underlined a lot of things that I will go back to later on. This book put me in a creative zone that caused me to think in a different way about my business and my purpose in life.”

(3) practical wisdom – down-to-earth advice for people with limited finances and big dreams, a series of self-coaching questions…and so much more.

(4) special sections set aside throughout the book to address specific entrepreneurial interests: graphic designers, inventors, entrepreneurial moms, teenagers, network marketers, investors, ex-cons, franchise owners, artists, filmmakers, authors, speakers…

(5) addresses the typical pressures that the entrepreneurial pursuit places upon family life…especially the first 3-5 years of starting a business.

Another Freeman gem!
By Lawrence Slater  (Naples, FL USA)   

Joel Freeman has once again done what is so customary of him--provided us with a powerhouse of wisdom in practical, consumable bites. This is vintage Freeman--straight from the heart; always the best.

A great read for any entrepreneur!
By Honest Jon "Telling The Truth"  Houston, TX USA

Joel Freeman has done it again! I saw Joel speak at a conference four years ago and was very skeptical. I wasn't sure if he was one of those PhD's whose content was all theory-based or whether he could speak to me on "real life" terms. Boy was I impressed! Not only does Dr. Freeman give step-by-step instructions for business success, his information is actually entertaining and witty.
You owe it to yourself and your bank account to read this book!

Real talk, must read for trailblazers everywhere.
By N. Jones "Lunch Lady  (Odenton, MD)

Dr. Freeman and If Nobody Loves You... found me during the budding stages of my business. It took me all of two days to read it cover to cover. I found the book in stark comparison to most business reads refreshing and lively. A straight shot for anyone thinking of, or actively pursuing, their enterprise dreams. I go back and reference it every now and again, when I need that occasional "jolt of entrepreneurial energy and wisdom".

Like a good shot of espresso, this book will get you going!
By Kim Dixon "Mompreneur"  (Ontario, Canada)

If Nobody Loves You, Create the Demand is truly a powerful jolt of entrepreneurial energy and wisdom. It's a clear and effective outline of countless ideas and concepts that everyone in business can use to effectively create demand for products and/or services. It's easy to read and packed with useful tips and tricks that you can really put to work. And, it's a great refresher for those who are out of ideas or looking for a nice jump-start in activity. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

On of the best books I ever read this year.
By Dr. Israel King   (Maryland, USA) -

In line with Napoleon Hill's "Think and Grow Rich", this book "If Nobody Loves You Create the Demand " is loaded with great practical advises and strategies that will lead anyone to his or her financial destiny. Dr. Freeman presents here a book I wish I had before I went for my MBA. I strongly recommend this book to an Entrepreneur.

Worth Your Time!
By  Edward Kissinger (Maryland, USA)  

The book takes a relatively hard topic to write about and makes it enjoyable. Joel uses his own experiences to help guide you to where you want to be. Whether you are a successful business person or someone just starting out, the lessons in this book are applicable to all. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.



Q. Where did you come up with the title and how does it fit into the message of the book?

A.   Gary Paxton, the creator of The Monster Mash, Alley Oop, Cherry Pie and He Was There All The Time, also wrote the song “If Nobody Loves You, Create The Demand” done by The Blackwood Brothers. I had never heard the song, but the title intrigued me for years. And it was kind of a motto for me for many years when the business side if things got a bit tough. When the concept of this book developed that particular title was the only one I would consider for this book. It captured the intent and the essence of the book.

Q. Numerous recognized experts have endorsed this book such as Steve Forbes, Les Brown, Ken Blanchard, Ben Carson and many others.  What makes this book so different that these experts have had such a positive response?

A.   This is not a formula book, with a get-rich-easy-and-quick theme. My experience, along with the many other entrepreneurs I admire has been quite different. I have a specific resistance to the “millionaire minute” approach to the entrepreneurial journey. I think that it is committing literary malpractice to export that kind of a philosophy. In contrast, this book is very realistic about the ups and downs of the entrepreneurial journey. The overwhelming response I have gotten from readers is that it is a not-your-typical-entrepreneur-book.

   The book is filled with personal vulnerability, evocative content and practical wisdom. There are also special sections set aside throughout the book to address specific entrepreneurial interests: graphic designers, inventors, entrepreneurial moms, teenagers, network marketers, investors, ex-cons, franchise owners, artists, filmmakers, authors and speakers. I also address the typical pressures that the entrepreneurial pursuit places upon family life, especially the first 3-5 years of starting a business.

Q. Although this book presents information and inspiration that will help anyone “scratch their entrepreneurial itch,” who will benefit most from reading it?

A.   It is especially designed for people in the beginning to mid stages of the entrepreneurial pursuit. It is also for someone facing retirement or transitioning from one job to another, walking through the personal reinvention process looking for clarity. However, it is also for the seasoned professional who may want to use this book as a resource, giving it to those starting out.

Q. You have a different approach to the development of a business plan.  Your book emphasizes the importance a website plays in the success of any business venture.  Why should creating a website be the first step in the development of a new business?

A.   In this day and age, if you don’t have a website you’re not really in business. This is one of the more creative, productive, and less boring ways to do a strategic business plan. You will need to address the nitty gritty aspects of your business in due time, however the process required to develop a website will address all of the legitimate questions you need to address before you can hit prime time with your venture (Who? What? Why? When? Where? How?).

   Once you have addressed the major questions and developed content, you not only know the all-important answers to those questions, but you now also have a website. The process you endured in the development of a website has forced you to understand what you are all about and how you are going to implement the vision that is burning within. In essence you have now completed the public version of your business plan; your digital brochure.

Q. One chapter in your book is devoted to the importance of “branding yourself.”  What makes a good brand statement? 

A.   You must determine your main strength(s) and then you can develop a creative spin to that strength. For instance, my company brand is seven words “Dealing With People Who Drive You Crazy!”®. That statement brings a smile to another person’s face. It’s quick. No long explanation. It fits my semi-off-the-wall-sense-of-humor and is aligned with my passion to help people.

   The brand of a company is like a zebra galloping with a herd of horses. It looks like a horse and runs like a horse – even blending in with the rest of the herd – if someone is only focusing specifically on the activity of running. But the black and white stripes of the zebra cause it to visually stand out, up close or far away.

   That’s part of the purpose of a brand. There are plenty of goods and services out there, but a five to seven word brand and unique business practices – backed up with excellent customer service – can cause what you are doing to be set apart as something unique in the midst of many others doing the same types of things.

Q. What do you want people to walk away with after they have finished reading your book?

A.   I want readers to grasp the reality that they are in a rare and wonderful fraternity of other entrepreneurs who have their own stories to tell. I also hope that readers appreciate the fact that I gave away a lot of my personal business secrets. I want to send a message that it is important to be a giver. That’s why I love organizations like SCORE, Job Corps, Toastmasters and so many other organizations that provide a framework for people to give away wisdom lessons to others who need a hand helping them up over the fence.
