Most recently having launched one of Atlanta’s newest business accelerators in Kennesaw Georgia.

Business Accelerators was founded with one goal, purpose and objective in mind; provide a place for you to go, through the creation of an environment where you can know and grow. As the founder I have survived and learned much from two bankruptcies, many failed businesses and relationships along the way. It has been said, “you fail your way to success!” Many of these “lesson’s learned” along with the adoption and implementation of “best practices” contributed to the successes I have experienced.

Having started a business with very little money, no debt or borrowing, to it being profitable year after year for over 22 years and then sold yielding a substantial return is what most entrepreneurs’ dream of and would consider success.

Business Accelerators is the culmination of the learning experiences amassed through my experiences from start-up failures and bumps along the way, to doing business with fortune 500 company’s.

Therefore Business Accelerators provides you a place to “go” (co-working, office space, training, and conference rooms). It’s a place for you to “know” (business class programming, topics, training that is relevant, current and best in practice). A place for you to “grow” (various events and opportunities designed specifically to foster personal and professional growth).

Having started many businesses over the years and from coaching many, “I want to start”, or “already in business” people, I have discovered that there seems never to be enough time to do what we need or want to do, and we are always looking for ways to grow or keep, money. Time and money! With that in mind, our programming is designed teach you how to gain an advantage in the business world, and assist you in balancing both time and budget.
