How I can help you
In a 14 year timeframe, I started a company, grew it, and sold it. I believe this gives me a unique perspective in helping other entrepreneurs achieve their dream. I began my business career as a sole proprietor but within 4 years took on a partner and created an LLC. My company initially serviced a Tri-State area with a core staff of 3 people! We created an on demand end user training product for the telecommunications industry which we sold to a global company elevating our small company's stature within the industry. As a result of the credibility gained, we quickly grew our company by expanding services offered and increasing our service area nationwide. We went from providing a single service; creating educational training programs, to providing a wide variety of professional services. My company also was certified as a Women Business Enterprise. The biggest challenge we had as a professional service company, was being recognized as a preferred vendor with the biggest manufacturers and distributors of unified communication platforms. To achieve this status we had to have the best people, best resources and exceptional customer service. All of which we successfully achieved!
