I had a great deal of fun being interviewed by Mark Goodman, SCORE Chicago business mentor, on March 17th. I wanted to provide the link so you can check it out. SCORE is a non-profit organization that's dedicated to entrepreneur education and the formation, growth and success of small business in the US. I have the great honor of being a part of SCORE Chicago providing free business counseling, management consulting and really affordable workshops.
I want to hear from you. Tell me what you think of the video. People are right, the camera does put 10 lbs. on you. :(
This is a recorded interview. Please do not call the number on the screen.
BUSINESS SUCCESS STORY - SWEEPING DIMENSIONS
Friday, March 18, 2011
It has been a great experience in returning to the classroom – this time as a speaker, and not a student. I was invited to speak to Dr. Roberts’ class at Columbia College on the perils of entrepreneurship and the benefits of utilizing programs that SCORE offers to budding entrepreneurs and those looking to expand an already successful business. Some of the questions these young learners asked pertained to creating the right business entity, insurance requirements, and applying for a loan. I was asked questions a little close to home; what is it like working in a family business, what have the challenges I’ve faced. Somewhat of an irony, is that I’ve had the chance to learn more about what students are concerned with then they probably learned from me. One thing is for sure, next time, I will bring a glass of milk to Dr. Roberts’ class – sweets are common in his classrooms.
