Governor Rick Scott today highlighted the state budgets investments in economic development efforts focused on creating jobs and opportunities for Florida families.
Governor Rick Scott said, The priorities outlined in this budget will continue to make Florida the perfect climate for business. Floridas unemployment rate dropped faster than anywhere else in the country except one state and weve created more than 330,000 private sector jobs in the past two years. Our unemployment rate continues to decline and we learned last week that Florida is once again below the national average at 7.2 percent. But, our work is not done until every Floridian who wants a job gets one.”
In the last three years, the economic benefit for completed incentive contracts was 86 percent higher than projected. Its obviously working. In the last two years, Enterprise Florida announced over 300 new projects that will result in 74 percent more jobs. This is great news for Florida families.
The Florida Families First budget supports Governor Scotts commitment to continued economic and job growth.
Quick Response Training: The budget provides $ 12 million for skills training offered to companies that are creating and training new high-skill/high-wage jobs in the state either by expanding their current workforce or relocating their company to the state.
Economic Development Incentives: The Florida Families First budget provides $ 45.5 million for economic development tools and incentives to promote job creation in Florida. Additionally, uncommitted funds from current year appropriations will be deployed to increase funding for this area.
Enterprise Florida: The Florida Families First budget provides $ 18.05 million for Enterprise Florida. This total includes $ 350,000 for export marketing and diversification and $ 1 million for the Florida Sports Foundation.
VISIT Florida: On the heels of back-to-back record years of tourism (the states number one industry), VISIT Florida will be funded at $ 63.5 million — $ 9.5 million above the current funding level.
Secretary of Commerce and President & CEO of Enterprise Florida Gray Swoope said, Having the right tools in the economic development tool box, helps Florida compete on both a national and global level. We have hundreds of competitive projects currently being pursued by the business development team at Enterprise Florida. Some will be game-changers while others will create smaller numbers of jobs, but every one of them is important to our state and we will work hard to win them all.
DEO Executive Director Jesse Panuccio said, I would like to thank Governor Scott for signing a budget that will continue to help Floridas economy grow and get Florida families back to work. Our economy has made tremendous gains over the last two years and this budget will help continue that trend.
The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity combines the states economic, workforce, and community development efforts. This new approach helps expedite economic development projects to fuel job creation in competitive communities.

* Every free economic transaction creates wealth. Me buying a candy bar from you makes us both richer, since we both have things we value more. “Wealth” and “value” are not the same as money, or even necessarily the same as purchasing power.

More and more people are turning to online business systems to help them to overcome the difficult economic situation which has resulted in millions of people losing their jobs. For most of these people, searching for conventional employment has not yielded any results, and thus the millions of online business systems available on the internet provide an attractive alternative.
With approximately 12.5 million people being unemployed in the United States alone, the need for alternate ways to generate an income and support a family is becoming more important than ever. While there are still those who are diligently searching for employment opportunities, surveys state that there are also about 844,000 discouraged workers or workers who believe there simply are no jobs available anymore. While this might be true in the conventional business world, it is not the case online.
Online business systems offer many benefits for those who are willing to put in some work. They not only allow individuals and families to make an income in the difficult financial climate, but they also give the online business person the benefit of being their own boss. They will no longer need to depend on others for their monthly sustenance and they cannot get fired; the onus will be on them alone. There is also no limit to how much income they can generate; it will all depend on how effective their business methods are and how much they invest in the business.
Of course, there are also downsides to online business systems. People will be their own bosses; however they will not be able to rely on a fixed monthly income. There is no limit to how much they can earn, but there will also be no floor to how much they could fail to make, or even lose. These are the risks of online business systems. It also takes a long time for most online businesses to really take off and start generating revenue; in most cases this will take at least a few months. Because of this, many online hopefuls give up their business ventures, because they do not see immediate results. This accounts for the low success rate of online businesses, with many people estimating that as little as 2% of people actually have successful online business.
However, those who do stick it out, do their research and invest the same amount of time and effort into their online business as they would with a conventional business, are able to enjoy a sizable income, which in many cases continues to roll in even after the entrepreneur relaxes their efforts. Searching out high quality training opportunities can also greatly increase their chances of success. A full online business systems review offers more information about this opportunity.
