American Writers & Artists Institute Kicks Off Its Annual “Summer of Money” Challenge Helping Writers Launch a Home-Based Business Before Labor Day

AWAI’s Members Will Work to Have Their Own Home-Based Business Up and Running In Just Three Short Months

Delray Beach, FL – June 9, 2010 – American Writers & Artists Institute (AWAI),, today announced it’s popular “Summer of Money Challenge,” that encourages writers to take advantage of the extra time they have this summer, and launch their own home-based business by Labor Day.

“We're calling this the “Summer of Money” Challenge, because, while others are wasting away the summer months, our members will be learning a new skill and then launching an exciting home-based business that can start generating revenue month after month for as long as they want,” says AWAI Co-Managing Partner, Rebecca Matter. “In just a few months they’ll be in better control of their financial future then they are today.”

People participating in AWAI’s “Summer of Money” Challenge will receive …

  • Generous discounts on any of the company’s training programs;
  • A “make-money-or-else guarantee;
  • Specialized success plans to follow, written by experts in the field of their chosen business;
  • A chance to earn $2,500 from AWAI and attend the live AWAI event of their choice free; and
  • Special recognition for themselves and their new business.

According to Home Business® Magazine, “as the economy clings stubbornly to a recession, the home-based business market still continues to grow. With record levels of unemployment and job uncertainty for those still employed, the investigation of home businesses and start-ups increases.” And with this Challenge from AWAI, entrepreneurs can get free guidance on the best businesses to start, based on their personal financial and lifestyle goals.

Nan Hughes from Carey, IL told us, “When I heard about AWAI’s “Summer of Money” Challenge, and how I could start my new online business by Labor Day, which is also my birthday, I thought, what could be a better gift for me and my savings account? It’s time to build something that will help fund my dreams (and retirement!). With a 30-60-90 day plan that maps out what I need to do, and the support from AWAI, I can finally stop procrastinating, wishing, dreaming – and start doing.”
