Learn about local entrepreneurs who launched a new podcast to help entrepreneurs find the way to financial freedom.

Two local entrepreneurs wanted to create a community among other driven individuals seeking to enter entrepreneurship. To help guide other determined business owners living in uncertain economic times, they launched Side Hustle City.

“Side Hustle City is a community of like-minded, driven people at various stages of entrepreneurship,” Co-Founder Adam Koehler. “Ideally it will become an ecosystem that birts vibrant start-ups and ideas that create economic inclusion and financial stability for all people willing to bust it.”

Koehler, who is also the founder of Revered Out as well as other numerous ventures, launched Side Hustle City alongside Kyle Stevie, the self-proclaimed Forrest Gump of the Cincinnati start-up scene. 

The inspiration for Side Hustle City came from the desire to help entrepreneurs take care of themselves.

“Generations of Americans have relied on subsidies from the government and it’s created a death cycle for families and communities,” says Koehler. “Side Hustle City was established on the principle that the only person, or entity, that can take care of you is you. We want to give access to tools and education that allow people to provide for their own needs. We believe that it is going to take more than one stream of income and we want to provide examples of people who have successfully navigated that course.”

Koehler says that he hopes those who connect with Side Hustle City will give people the opportunity to walk away as the captain of their own voyage. “Economic independence is accessible to everyone,” he says. “The more wealth in each community, the better each community becomes.” 

Within Side Hustle City is a community offering up real life examples of people who have achieved economic freedom through multiple streams of income. “We also provide access to organizations and people who can help advise entrepreneurs on meeting important check points in their growth from an idea into a company with employees,” says Koehler.

The concept behind Side Hustle City is as unique as the individuals in the group. “We aren’t reinventing the wheel,” he says. “We are only centralizing information for people to have access to. The success of the group isn’t driven by the organization, it’s driven by the desire of the individual members of the community.”

As Side Hustle City continues to expand its reach to the region’s entrepreneurs, they plan to host meet-ups and social networking events. For now, Side Hustle City connects with others on social media and through their podcast. 

“We are going to continue to bring interesting and inspiring success stories and informational interviews that will benefit business owners,” he says.

This local financial services company helps your money work for you. Learn about their upcoming star-studded event!

 
For 30 years Truepoint Wealth Counsel has maintained its focus on creating peace of mind and possibility.
 
“We are fee-only fiduciaries and one of the few employee-owned and independent wealth management firms in our region,” explains Truepoint Wealth Advisor Deanna Sicking. “Despite how our industry typically operates, there simply is not a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to personal finance because money has a way of affecting every aspect of our lives.”
 
With a focus on meaning, Truepoint’s guidance is rooted in their clients’ values and goals, and every client team includes a wealth advisor and four subject-matter experts: investment, financial planning, tax, and estate planning. Truepoint was built to bring these parts together in a way that actually creates greater value.
 
This approach is in stark contrast to the experience many individuals have where they rely on a cadre of varied professionals to try to stitch things together. Unfortunately, much is often lost in the process.
 
“But it’s not just about the integrated technical expertise; it’s also about discovering your ‘why’ – the key to bringing clarity to your financial decision-making,” says Sicking. “And we believe that the sum of money is secondary to the greater meaning your financial results are there to support.”
 
The team at Truepoint is led by Founder & CEO Michael J. Chasnoff and President & Principal Steve Condon. Now with a growing team of 66, more than half of the employees are women, something Sicking says is a rarity in the wealth management industry where only 25 percent of Certified Financial Planners are women. For the past 10 years, Truepoint has made a dedicated effort to better engage female clients through the Truepoint Women’s Wealth Counsel, a community of the firm’s female clients, team members, and professional partners. 
 
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Women’s Wealth Counsel, they’re hosting an upcoming webinar.
 
“We are very excited to welcome Jean Chatzky to our Truepoint Talks webinar series,” says Sicking. “Jean is a celebrated personal finance columnist who many may know as the financial editor of NBC’s TODAY show. As a firm committed to engaging women in their financial lives, Truepoint is especially proud to have this special conversation with Jean in honor of Truepoint’s 30th anniversary.
 
The webinar will take place on October 20 at 4:15pm. You can learn more about the upcoming webinar and register here.
 
To learn more about Truepoint Wealth Counsel and its plethora of services, visit TruepointWealth.com. There, Sicking says, you’ll find more information about the team and their approach. You can stay in touch with Truepoint by joining the email list on the website.

A university professor is releasing a new collection of short stories to show how the power of storytelling brings people together.

Stories bring us together. Whether they’re stories that intertwine or stories that bring together different groups of people, stories are uniting in what they can do.

Sarah Strickley is launching her own short story collection, Fall Together

“Each story is a re-telling of some kind,” she says. “Some stories re-tell other stories, some re-tell other forms of storytelling: a country song, a newspaper headline, etc.”

Strickley’s experience in storytelling comes from her professional and educational careers. Currently she teaches creative writing at the University of Louisville. “I earned my PhD at the University of Cincinnati and my MFA at the University of Iowa,” she explains.”I joined the creative writing department at UofL about 5 years ago and I am faculty editor of our online literary journal, Miracle Monocle.”

When it comes to her short story collection Fall Together, Strickley says that she feels the book offers a unique level of variety on the formal and thematic levels. “No two stories are the same,” she says. 

The classes that Strickley teaches at the University of Louisville work through several genres of literature, writing, and discussing published work in addition to the students’ own pieces. “The idea is to learn by doing and to learn from each other,” she adds.

While the students in her courses are typically enrolled at the University of Louisville, Strickley does offer the public an opportunity to learn with her via the Iowa Summer Writing Festival.

“It’s a great chance to choose a course that matches your needs and sensibilities and anyone is welcome to enroll,” says Strickley.

In addition to Fall Together and the courses she offers as a university professor, Strickley says that she has a new novella coming out this winter called Sister.

The founder of this new group helps you live your life and dreams on your own terms. See how she’s helping you do it all, without doing it all on your own.

Daniyiel Walker knows it takes a village. To help her find that village and do all the things she knew she was capable of, she launched The Alpha Female Association. 

“The Alpha Female Association’s mission is to motivate and provide female entrepreneurs with services and resources that create effective social media strategies and lifestyle designs that elevate a powerhouse for both personal and business growth,” she explains. “Along with creating related events, content, and a community of like-minded women.”

Walker says that she was inspired to launch The Alpha Female Association after she found it difficult to run a business from home, be a mother, and be a wife all at the sametime. “I knew I couldn’t be alone in this constant struggle to stay afloat,” she says. “After years of educating myself, advising other women of how to brand and market their online presence, and thriving in healthcare administration, I decided to tell my story on a daily basis and met some amazing women along the way.”

Then, what would become The Alpha Female Association began creating events that harvested moments and relationships with the City of Cincinnati, by helping women who are established or just starting to design the lives of their dreams. 

Walker and The Alpha Female Association provides the tools and services clients need to help them scale and brand their online business with their creative brand development and social media management services. 

Through The Alpha Female Association, Walker hopes to create a community of female entrepreneurs that not only run powerhouse businesses, but also get to live their lives while doing so. 

The Alpha Female Association isn’t the only way that Walker is creating her community, however. 

“I’ve also worked to create and produce a podcast called Alpha Female Motivation,” says Walker. “It’s a podcast that provides experiences, advice, and stories to help women live their dream life. Cliche, maybe, but we all want to live life on our own terms.” 

Season 2 of The Alpha Female Association airs on October 6. The Alpha Female Energy book and planner will be available in December. 

To learn more about The Alpha Female Association, visit www.alphafemaleassociation.com. You can also follow along on Facebook and Instagram, and find the podcast by searching “Alpha Female Motivation” on Spotify and iTunes.

Learn about a local law firm‘s initiative to lead the way in diversity and women's advancement within their organization and community.

Taft’s Gender Advancement Committee is led by Cincinnati partner Sonya Jindal Tork and Indianapolis partner Tracy Betz.

Back in 2017, Taft Law formed its Gender Advancement Committee to help develop, promote, and advance women attorneys within the firm itself, the legal profession, and the community. 

“The committee works with Taft leadership to identify potential barriers to women’s successes, and then creates plans to eliminate those barriers,” says Taft’s Senior Manager on Business Development Megan Riley.

Before 2017, there was a lot of formal and informal feedback from Taft’s female lawyers. Much of that feedback involved raising questions and making comments as to the long-term viability of the private practice of law as a career. Then, those questions and comments were directed at the profession as a whole, while others were addressed to Taft specifically.

From there Taft’s Managing Partner Robert Hicks realized that if Taft wanted to become the highly regarded “employer of choice” in each of its markets, then it needed to adopt a mindset and approach that helps to attract, retain, and develop female lawyers in a way Riley says was more effective than what the firm had achieve before. “Forming the Gender Advancement Committee seemed like a good way to start working on these issues,” says Riley.  

Today, the Gender Advancement Committee is led by Cincinnati partner Sonya Jindal Tork and Indianapolis partner Tracy Betz. 

Together the two head up the committee that hopes to break down barriers for women attorneys. “We have more women now in leadership positions thanks to a host of initiatives, such as bringing in national experts to disrupt implicit biases and industry leaders who help us benchmark key metrics,” says Riley. “At the same time, especially important given the current environment, we want to focus on creating a modern workplace culture – one that is flexible, inclusive, and supportive of a strong work/life balance.”

In the community, Taft is involved with their “Women of Taft” affinity group, which is made up of female lawyers from the Cincinnati office. “The group celebrates women leaders, strengthens relationships with women clients who own or manage organizations in the Cincinnati area, and helps our lawyers forge relationships with professional and executive women in Cincinnati,” says Riley. “Every year we host a SHE (Support Her Endeavors) event, where we recognize women who are trailblazers or leaders in the community.”

In early 2020, before the COVID-19 pandemic, Taft hosted a successful clothing drive in the Cincinnati office benefitting Dress for Success Cincinnati, in honor of International Women’s Day.

Most recently, Taft was selected as one of Working Mother magazine’s 2020 “Best Law Firms for Women.” It was one of only 60 law firms in the country to earn this honor. “This shows the initiatives our Gender Advancement Committee has worked on – from moving to a one-class partnership structure; to offering a 16-week paid parental leave (regardless of gender); to partnering with companies such as CorporateCARE Solutions and MilkStork to offer family-centered benefits – is paying off for our firm,” adds Riley.

In search of new talent for your business in this flooded job market? See how one local lady launched a service to leverage her decades of experience to bring you the best candidates.

Anne Voller, founder of AV Hire Power

Anne Voller’s friends often asked her about her talent acquisition network and her own guidance on hiring strategies. Along with this help came a fascination for diving into the challenges companies were facing and helping them find talent solutions to their problems. 

That’s when she established AV Hire Power, a talent acquisition consulting practice that specializes in helping small- to mid-sized companies hire their incoming talent. 

“Talent acquisition, while in partnership with Human Resources, is different from human resources and focuses at the beginning of the recruitment funnel,” explains Voller. “This includes employment brand marketing,outsourcing and finding applicants, creating job descriptions, fine-tuning the interview process, and overseeing the actual hiring of candidates. The true area of focus for my business takes place well before candidates become employees.”

The main goal at AV Hire Power is to help businesses work on designing the strategy for a company to appeal to the “best fit” applicants, while also treating them with dignity and respect. 

Voller found that in her mission of helping companies find the best fit for them, she enjoyed listening to their stories, helping them to dig deep and weed out their exact trouble spots. 

“I found that creating a unique strategy customized to their specific recruiting operation was exciting and rewarding,” she says. 

Voller has more than 20 years of experience in Talent Acquisition and her prior career was in retail as the Vice President of recruiting at Macy’s.

“One of the great things about that experience is that retail hires all types of jobs from sales to warehouses, call centers to college recruits,” she says. “No two days were ever the same.”

The main focuses at AV Hire Power are entry level, hourly hiring and college recruiting. 

In terms of hourly recruiting, Voller says that it doesn’t matter what type of industry because the processes are similar, whether working with retail or restaurants, property management and warehouses. “The job descriptions and interview questions are different, but the sourcing and hiring processes are very similar across industries,” she adds.

The other area of Voller’s expertise comes in recruiting college students. “The vast majority of collect recruiting today is being done virtually and that can be a disadvantage to a company with a lesser known brand,” says Voller. “However, if you learn how to truly customize your messaging to cater to these unique times, you will find outstanding candidates.”

When it comes to recruiting at AV Hire Power, Voller says that one of the most unique things about her business is that she is able to understand the recruitment needs of every business she works with simply by listening to their story.

“Let’s face it, we all benefit from an approachable, unbiased third party opinion,” she says. “This initial analysis helps reveal the gaps while paving the path to a winning strategy.”

As for the future of AV Hire Power, Voller says that she hopes to build an aspect of team coaching into her business to help everyone she works with leverage their strengths so they can work together more collaboratively. 

“For instance, if someone on the team is naturally organized, that person can help others understand those best practices,” she says. “The process I’m launching will helps teams better understand their inherent strengths as a team and where they might need additional resources.” 

AV Hire Power will be launching its website at the end of the month. For now, however, you can keep in touch on LinkedIn and by emailing annevoller@avhirepower.com

How do you stay connected and grow professionally in a socially distanced world? Learn about this organization’s virtual conferences for women leadership all over the country.

Women are essential to the workforce, and Women for Economic and Leadership Development (WELD) wants to ensure that women are developed and advanced to help strengthen the economic prosperity of the communities it serves. 

“WELD is a national 501(c)(3) organization and builds programs, events, and a community to support the leadership development of women and drives business growth,” explains National Chapter Management Officer Deepa Keller. 

The founders behind it organization wanted to establish something that would accurately represent female leadership in the community. And they didn’t want to just help women in typical roles, but they wanted to increase the number of women leaders, promote and elevate other women to get a seat at the table and provide programs and connections to advance women to the top. 

WELD is a volunteer-based organization that provides opportunities for women to build strong community connections while also paying forward their success. “These connections foster new careers and business-building opportunities for our volunteers and help women find mentors and sponsors,” says Keller. “We are governed by a volunteer board of directors and we have a national office team that executes the operational aspects of the organization and its chapters.”

The Southern Ohio/Cincinnati chapter of WELD launched in April 2018 before being officially recognized as a chapter in September 2019.

At a time when it’s exceptionally important for businesses to remain afloat during the COVID-19 pandemic, WELD is helping its members to stay connected during this crucial time. 

“It’s easy to neglect short and long-term goals during times of uncertainty, but staying focused is extremely important in your leadership development,” says Keller. “WELD is grateful for the outstanding leaders who will be delivering excellent sessions for our members and supporters in the upcoming weeks.”

There are a couple of WELD events just around the corner: 

On Wednesday, September 2, is the 2020 WELD Pittsburgh National Webinar. This virtual event from 12-1pm is on “Negotiating the Undone: How to Take the Fear Out of Saying ‘No’ to More Work.” The speaker for the event is Suzanna Malausky and you can register here.

The 2020 WELD National Special Webinar will be held on Thursday, September 10, from 12-1pm. Christy Walsh and Regan Walsh will serve as the speakers on “Power Play: How to Lead with Confidence and Style in a Virtual World.” You can register for that event here

There is another 2020 WELD National Special Webinar with Meghan Day on September 15 from 10am-11am. This webinar will teach you how you can be part of a new network of diverse directors and rising directors, including access to view and apply for board opportunities at leading organizations worldwide.

On September 16 is the 2020 WELD September Leadership Series Webinar from 11:45am-1pm with Sandy Harbrech Ratchford, CEO and President of Paul Werth Associates for the fifth of a six-part leadership series for the year. 

“In this discussion, Sandy will focus on defining power and how to use power and persuasion together to effectively and constructively achieve results and what pitfalls to avoid,” says Keller. “It’s about defining your own power and using it to back your ideas while persuading others to believe in them, helping to set you up for success.”

The Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber offers a way to help local businesses save on costs with a human resources partnership.

The Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber has teamed up with Sheakley to offer a Human Resources and Risk Management Support Program to help provide Chamber members with the knowledge and expertise necessary to navigate an increasing number of potential risk factors and considerations as employees return to work following the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The inspiration behind these new services came from the Chamber’s desire to continuously offer new opportunities to serve members. “Our cost saving partners are here to help provide members with key tools and resources needed to keep their business strong and running smoothly, while increasing their bottom line,” explains Beth McNeill, Senior Director, Sales & Engagement at the Cincinnati Chamber. “Whether your company was forced to close or remained open, owners and managers are faced with a need to safeguard the health of their employees, customers, and clients, while also ensuring your business stays connected, efficient, and supported.”

The program takes a personal, consultative 1:1 approach to service with a large team of certified HR professionals coupled with the experience Sheakley brings with their workers’ compensation efforts. “Sheakley is the only Cost Saving Partner with the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber to have two separate business lines providing services to members,” adds McNeill. Additionally, members who enroll with Sheakley by September 30 will receive a $100 gift card to the member business of their choice. 

The work between the Chamber and Sheakley dates back to August 1991, when they joined forces to help Chamber members save money on their Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation premium through ChamberComp™, and now, 29 years later, thousands of members have saved over $1 billion combined on their premiums, Sheakley’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing John Dunn says. 

“Our partnership will help businesses stabilize costs and cash flow with our buying power while driving efficiencies and providing expertise in managing the complexities of employment,” says Dunn. “Our clients tell us they sleep better at night knowing they have a partner who shares in their liabilities and protects them from what they don’t know while allowing them to focus on growing their business and ultimately their profitability.”

One of the Chamber members who took the opportunity to work with Sheakley is Funky’s Catering Events. Michael Forgus, Managing Member of Funky’s Catering Events, says he recommends small to medium-sized private businesses to consider using a PEO.

“In today’s world, health and medical insurance, 401-K plans, payroll, unemployment taxes, worker’s compensation, 941 payroll taxes, and labor laws are becoming increasingly complex,” he says. “Labor compliance issues are a rapidly changing environment and having a dedicated partner like Sheakley HR Solutions has allowed Funky’s Catering Events to stay focused on running and growing our business.”

Forgus says that he can count on Sheakley to manage employee handbooks, hiring and firing processes, and unemployment practices. He also relies on Sheakley to supply him with current labor and sanitation information. “Knowing they can handle this is a gigantic weight off of our shoulders,” he says. “It is much better to have trained experts to manage the entire human resources framework.”

He adds that the costs associated with health and medical insurance, unemployment, best hiring and firing practices can be staggering and having trained human resources experts a call away takes a large burden off daily management needs. 

You can learn more about the program here or you can send an email to Beth McNeill at bethm@cincinnatichamber.com or Mike Cicak at mike.cicak@sheakley.com.

Looking for a job transition or to future-proof your next step? Want to enhance your current career path or better market your business?  

One of the many things the pandemic taught us is the importance and vast capabilities of technology. It was already a fast-growing, in-demand field with a tech talent shortage. Now, even more so. While jobs are getting cut across the job market, the technology field instead now has even more openings than ever. 

That’s why Cincinnati-based Kable Academy is amping up their programming to fill that technology talent gap. The program, which has courses that are 12 or 24 weeks long, offers students the opportunity to successfully graduate and immediately put their knowledge to the test in a full-time job. 

“The Kable Academy is a high-intensity, 12 or 24-week program that teaches comprehensive material with over 400 hours of live learning,” says The Kable Academy’s Director of Learning Chris Ellison. “On top of learning, we work with each student on job assistance into a secured job that has a starting salary between $45,000-$55,000.”

There is a team of instructors that keeps The Kable Academy running, including a lead instructor for each course as well as a teaching assistant. Ellison serves as the Director of Learning and has years of previous experience with building a program from the ground up. Paige Brockhoff works as the Admissions Coach, and the first person each student interacts with when they begin their enrollment. 

There are three different options for class at The Kable Academy. There is a 12-week, full-time route for Web Development and Cybersecurity. There’s also a part-time, 24-week option in Cybersecurity. 

The team at The Kable Academy wants to change the lives of each student who walks through the door. “From their first day to graduation, we want to do everything in our power to help each student find a secured job after graduation,” says Ellison. “Even though nothing is guaranteed, our team is dedicated to each student and giving them the best learning experience possible. If our students don’t succeed, we don’t succeed.”

While 12 weeks may not seem long enough to learn what needs to be learned for a tech program, students are exposed to the same amount of hours that would be acquired in a 2 or 4-year program. “Our professional tech instructors and teaching assistants focus on each student,” says Ellison. “Our recruiting support team prepares them for the job market, provides interview and resume assistance, along with business advice to help students best determine what type of position is the best fit for them.”

The Kable Academy is hosting a virtual event to learn more about their program and hear from an entrepreneur who boosted her career and business through these courses. Learn more about it here.

Kable Academy is also hosting an in-person event on Thursday, September 24, for “Codes & Cocktails.” The event will be held at 16 Bar + Arcade in Over-the-Rhine from 5:30-8:30pm. The first part-time program will begin on October 5. 

To learn more about The Kable Academy, visit https://kableacademy.com. There you can learn more about the programs, Kable Academy partners, and the timeline for fall courses. Additionally, there is a course catalog on the website that readers can view and find more details about each program. You can also apply for the programs on the website. You can also stay up-to-date with The Kable Academy on Facebook and Instagram.

Cincy Chic and The Kable Academy have also teamed up to do a Women in Tech Survey. One participant of the survey will win a Tech Swag Bag valued at approximately $75. You can participate here.

The Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber is offering a program to help leaders in the region build their cultural competence. See how you can apply before the deadline.

As the world gets smaller and markets expand, there is the need for better understanding and higher levels of cultural competence, and the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber is helping with that right here in the Queen City with their Building Cultural Competence program. 

Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber’s Senior Director of Leadership Programs, Amy Thompson

The program, sponsored by Ohio National Financial Services, helps leaders in the region to develop skills for building bridges across the cultural, political, and social divides in the area.

Building Cultural Competence runs from September through December and includes a variety of session topics including building the case for cultural competence, building rapport across cultures, the role of emotional intelligence in bridging cultural differences, and listening and learning in conflict. 

“Research continues to show us that the most effective teams are diverse and they leverage the diversity within the group,” explains the Chamber’s Senior Director of Leadership Programs, Amy Thompson. “As leaders strive to enhance their leadership and effectiveness it is critical that they add cultural competence to their toolbox.”

The overall goal of the program is to help enhance others’ understanding of their own worldview and cultural identities including implicit and unconscious bias while increasing their knowledge of differences viewed through race, ethnicity, and gender. The program also aims to give its participants the tools they need for communication and behavior to bridge the differences in cultures while creating an on-going, cross-cultural dialogue that examines how to increase inclusion in the region. 

Priya Dhingra Klocek, President & CEO of Consultant on the Go

Thompson says the program has shown great results since its inception. “More than 174 leaders have graduated from the program demonstrating statistically significant change in their cultural competence,” she adds. “As we strive to make our region’s businesses more inclusive and our community more welcoming and inclusive this is a critical program for leaders at all levels.”

Oxana Prokhorova, Director of Global Engagement for the College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Cincinnati, participated in the pilot group for Building Cultural Competence. As someone who speaks several languages and has lived in Europe, Asia, and the United States, she found the program to be a humbling experience. 

“The program showed me how much I need to learn and how hard to work on my blind spots,” she says. “It changed the way I interact with people forever and it made me more reflective and compassionate. It made me a better communicator and changed my interpersonal relations – with my daughter and my parents – and pushed me to acknowledge and validate people as they are.”

Prokhorova says this program is something that is needed now more than ever. “Culturally competent organizations repair divisions – racial, social, political, economic, and cultural,” she says. “We need this now more than ever. We express ourselves differently due to our life experiences and different cultural components, yet we have an innate ability to hear each other. And this ability to hear and validate brings harmony, richness, and efficiency to everything we do. It brings peace. It allows us to build a better home for everyone. Together.”

Building Cultural Competence is facilitated by Priya Dhingra Klocek, President & CEO of Consultant on the Go and a team of content experts including Eugene Partridge, Robin Shabazz, Tommie Lewis, Janet Reid, Vincent Brown, Gabe Gottlieb, and a panel of faith leaders.

“I want to help organizations manage and develop their most important assets: People,” she says. “At my consulting practice we focus on diagnosing and improving the fundamental human interactions upon which all successful businesses are built.”

With more than 20 years of experience working in the areas of Talent Management, Leadership Development, Diversity, and Change Management, Dhingra Klocek works with her clients collaboratively to find the solutions that will fit their business and cultural needs.

This year’s program is being offered in a blended learning format. Sessions will be virtual and the learning circles can be done in-person or virtual. 

Applications for the Chamber’s Cultural Competence program are due August 21. You can learn more about the program here
