Why did you sign up for ChiBizHub? Why is it important for entrepreneurs and small business owners to sign up for ChiBizHub?
I signed up because of the wealth of resources available at your fingertips. It’s rewarding to have a local organization understand the nuisances of entrepreneurship and provide helpful resources to encourage and equip you along the way. I think entrepreneurs should sign-up for this very reason.
What ChiBizHub resources are most valuable to you and your business?
I’ve found most helpful the business planning resources. You don’t know what you don’t know, so it’s been both a refresher and eye opener for me.
Do you have any advice for other local Chicagoland businesses looking to grow and expand?
Focus on one area until you perfect it. Until then there is no room for expansion. That’s like taking a magnifying glass and moving it all over the paper. If you leave it in one spot, it will catch on fire.
If you can make it in Chicago, you can make it anywhere. We have such a fun and honest culture here. Chicago has been a fan, supporter, and the best marketing a brand can ever have.
