I recently met Aundrea Wilcox, MBA she is the Executive Director of the KOSBE- The Small Business Connection which is part of the Kingsport Area Chamber of Commerce. I had been following her on Twitter for a couple of weeks before I decided to purchase her book, Startup Savvy: Strategies for Optimizing Small Business Survival and Success.
As person who has just completed a Master’s of Business Administration degree I have been inclined to start my own business. But as a newbie to TN from FL, I wanted to get a sense of the culture before launching to the commitment of starting a business. I believe Aundrea provides a great insight about how to start a biz plan, using (free) resources through the SBA & TSBDC, real stories of locals who have launched their own business in this area. I highly recommend slowly reading her final chapter: 40-Love Then Game.
