How’s business going: We are growing
One thing you wish everyone knew about your business: We recruit volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children going through the court system. We need more volunteers, especially men.
Something you offer that a customer won’t find elsewhere: A volunteer experience unlike any other that forever impacts the life of any abused or neglected child
Advice to young entrepreneurs: Be passionate about your work. Without passion, it will eventually fail.
Your first job: File clerk for a government office
Your role model (in business or in life generally) and why: I have two. Dean Benta for always conducting himself with a high degree of integrity. Maria LaFlaveur for always taking the time to discover the good in people, no matter who they are.
The key to a successful business is: Focus, planning and an effective team.
