You've made it past the first hurdle and started your own business. Growth has been steady, but slow—you seem to have hit a plateau. It’s time to take your business to the next level, but you find yourself asking: Where do I go from here? How do I keep my business moving forward? OCEAN NEI’s event—PROPEL: Keeping your business moving forward—will help answer these questions and inspire you to take your next step.

We’ll start off the evening hearing from Jay and Niyoki Chapman’s story of how they started & are running their two businesses: Faithfully Fitted Apparel and Faithfully Fitted Automobile Detailing. Then TK Herman will share the lessons he’s learned on company growth throughout his 20+ years at Aptera, Inc. Finally, we’ll end with a special treat: Ask the Coach – a panel of 3 business coaches ready to answer YOUR questions. This panel will feature TK Herman (Aptera, Inc), Brook Steed (Brook Steed Coaching & Consulting), & Theresa Steele (Theresa Steele Business Coaching).
