Fun fact about this entrepreneur.
Fun Fact
I worked 5 years in Broadcasting and during that time I built a new TV station Ch 23 in Minneapolis, MN.

The Snapshot

I began my career with the SBDC as a part-time advisor in Butler County, and was a contractor at the Wright State University center briefly, before coming to The Entrepreneurs Center in May of 2017.

I considered myself a partner on the day I was hired – May 29th, 2018. Start-Up week was probably my first major event representing TEC.

The best thing about working with entrepreneurs is helpingĀ realize their dream of self-employment.

The Advice

Be prepared for both the physical AND the monetary demands of starting a new business. It’s risky – be able to handle that risk.
