I have worked in manufacturing, retail and over thirty-three years as a small business mentor in a vocational adult program for start up businesses and those already in business. In this capacity, the businesses attended class twice a month and then we had one-on-one training at the business location covering all aspects of managing a more successful business.
Also, held many other training sessions open to the public for business related topics. Mentored many minority/women owned businesses and folks wanting to go into a non-profit business. Main goal has been to help these people succeed in either starting or managing their own business to be successful.
