When I started Treasures of Fort Pierce online magazine, I can honestly say that I had no idea how to initiate a small business, or how to deal with all the concerns and issues that come along with operating one. I just had an idea and wanted to help solve a problem. So, 2 1/2 years ago I invested in a website about Fort Pierce. It started out as a hobbie and because of my hard work and persistence it turned into a successful tool for promoting by using content and social media marketing. I realized that my business was growing way beyond my capacity to keep up. So, I went to a workshop and met Jack Hopkins who is a Business Analysis Consultant with The Small Business Development Center at IRSC. The light bulb in my head went off!! Wow, another “TREASURE” right here in little Ole Fort Pierce, Florida. Our innovative institution, Indian River State College was at my service. It’s probably one of the most under utilized resource we have so, I encourage everyone to use this free service to help start a new business or continue your success. Click on the link below for more information and tell Jack, that I sent you. Below is a video they used of me recommending them. I was honored. Scroll down past the video and see the Shark Tank event.

About National Small Business Week:
Every year since 1963, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week, which recognizes the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners. More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year. As part of National Small Business Week, the U.S. Small Business Administration takes the opportunity to highlight the impact of outstanding entrepreneurs, small business owners, and others from all 50 states and U.S. territories. Every day, they’re working to grow small businesses, create 21stcentury jobs, drive innovation, and increase America’s global competitiveness.
