(Chicago, IL) On October 28th, 2011 graphic designer/marketer, Julie M. Holloway left her full time job to pursue her dream of running her own creative agency. The self-taught designer had been creating art since the age of eight and was well known around Chicago for her innovative designs and her dedication to produce quality and unique work. After working at seven different corporations during a 16-year span, she finally decided it was “time.” During the past year while working at her own company, JMH Cre8ive Solutions full-time, Holloway realized a strong need existed to help other entrepreneurs – not just creatively – through leveraging her business contacts and their knowledge to create a solid foundation for those looking to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams. The result of a lot of networking, many conversations and business interactions became the basis for, “The Entrepreneur Within You” (220 Publishing). The book is a collection of inspirational and practical business advice from Holloway and 17 contributing writers who each pen a chapter on a variety of business topics and personal reflection. The book kicks off what Holloway hopes will be a movement to strengthen entrepreneurship globally.

“It is my dream, prayer, hope and one of my current passions and desires to ensure that this book helps and motivates countless entrepreneurs and soon to be entrepreneurs across the globe take the first step towards their pursuit. I have not experienced anything more gratifying than sharing my story of how I finally ‘realized’ the ‘artist/entrepreneur’ within me and taking the ultimate leap to pursue my God given purpose last year,” quoted Holloway in a recent memo to the contributors announcing the completion of the book.

Contributors to the book (dubbed by Holloway as the “TEWCrew2012”) include a foreword by Dr. Bernada Nicole Baker, Rhonda E. Alexander, Nicole Knox, Quinn Riley, Merry Marwig, Anthony L. Smith, Patrice N. Perkins, Glenn Murray, Shaniqua Jones, Danielle Willis, Steve Amella, Beth Doyle, GaLonda Chatman, Tiffany Jasper, Dana Moten, Adam Jackson and Corliss Johnson. Each writer provides unique perspectives on business with anecdotal, inspirational and practical advice for budding entrepreneurs. Topics range from building business relationships, knowing the right time to make the leap into entrepreneurship, and overcoming the obstacles of starting a business.

“The Entrepreneur Within You” will celebrate its “birth” On November 18, 2012 at Ven Sherrod’s Photography Studio, Chicago, IL (RSVP required) – the one-year anniversary of Holloway leaving her “day” job – with a book brunch in Chicago and an international launch. The “crew” has claimed November 18th as the 1st Annual Worldwide Day of Entrepreneurs®. The title will be available both online and at book retailers nationally.
