Asheville, NC – APRIL 6, 2016 – Weebly, the global platform that helps anyone easily build brilliant websites and online businesses, has announced a bus tour of through the Southeast, aimed at empowering entrepreneurs of any age to start their business and become their own boss.

The San Francisco based company is hitting the road to create 1000 bosses in 10 days at their #LikeaBoss interactive tech tailgate. Weebly’s team of web experts is partnering up with Mountain Biz Works and will be rolling into Asheville outside the Biltmore Building downtown on April 6th with on-site, outdoor web workshops, 1:1 website and ecommerce help, free headshots, swag and cash giveaways.

A Gallup poll shows 70% of Americans are miserable at their current job. That’s why Weebly wants to help people turn their passion into paycheck and bring their dream to life. Ashevillians are already part of this trend; people like Hannah Wood, who started her jewelry business made of raw elements from the Blue Ridge Mountains, or Roz Taubman, who turned her love for cooking into an Asheville staple with local ingredients at The Black Bird Restaurant downtown.

Weebly’s experts will get anyone started in 45 minutes, plus research shows the majority of Weebly micro-entrepreneurs make their first sale online within 6 days.   

Starting Wednesday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., hopeful entrepreneurs can stop by the Weebly #LikeaBoss Bus outside the Biltmore Building at 1 North Pack Square. One lucky person who signs up at this free event will win $1,000 dollar cash prize to launch their idea online. Register at www.weebly.com/likeaboss
