When Alfa Demmellash, CEO and co-founder of Rising Tide Capital, took the podium last night at the graduation ceremony for the organization’s signature program, she spoke about the first graduation 10 years ago.
There were 15 graduates at that first Community Business Academy ceremony, where cake and soda from the local supermarket were on the menu. Last night at St. Peter’s University Mac Mahon Student Center, the program graduated its 1,000th entrepreneur at a gala with 375 attendees, including 146 graduates.
Rising Tide Capital is a Jersey City-based non-profit organization devoted to helping entrepreneurs start and grow successful businesses. The graduates of the nationally recognized program completed an intensive course in basic business management and planning, where they gained hands-on familiarity with the fundamental concepts, tools, and skills needed to run a successful business.
“You guys are like silk,” Demmellash told the graduates. “You are precious to this economy, and to your families.”
Natural Foot Care Products - The New Natural Alternative For Healthy Skin
Newark, Ohio (PRWEB) January 12, 2015
When the wife of a podiatrist goes looking for a business opportunity, where does she look? "That's easy" said Thalia Oster. "I started a natural skin care company that's focused on the care and treatment of the foot. My husband has practiced podiatry for 30 years. He gives me the ideas and I simply set those ideas in motion."
Thalia Oster, JD is a mom of three, grandmother of two and a successful attorney. She said her job as a health care entrepreneur is to find health problems within her skill set that are currently being managed by mediocre solutions. She simply provides a better solution. "The foot lives in a unique environment. Trapped within shoes, the skin of the foot is subjected to a harsh environment that is unlike any other part of the body. As such, skin care products for the feet have to be targeted to these special needs."
Thalia journals her story at http://www.naturalfootcareproducts.com/blog . She credits her family for guiding her to start this natural foot care product business. "My daughter is sensitive to so many foods and chemicals skin care products. Learning to treat her sensitivities brought me to the realization that there are so many additives and unnecessary chemicals in our foods and skin care products. Once I studied the market, I realized the opportunities in a natural line of foot care products."
