CEO, USA Precast / Aeration Septic Inc
My goal was simple – to grow my businesses quickly. The ATHENAPowerLink® program was able to turn that dream into a reality.
I received an overwhelming amount of support and direction from my Board of Advisors which was comprised of local, industry experts. Throughout the year long program, they guided me as my team doubled in size and our sales grew by over 130%. The relationships I created with my Board of Directors also lead to increased work opportunities and expanded business lines.
Participation in the ATHENAPowerLink® has allowed me to create a clear vision of growth for the future. We are fortunate to have this incredible program available for female entrepreneurs in the Akron area. Thank you ATHENAPowerLink®!
