It is with great pride and pleasure that I announce the completion of this incredible program. The Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business program was challenging and rewarding. This journey started as a way to develop myself professionally and in the end will change the way I operate my business forever. The level of education and curriculum that @Babson College developed for this program is unparalleled to any other business training I have gone through. Sure, it wasn’t perfect but who is. The instructors, guest speakers, and advisors on the whole were top notch and extremely dedicated. As part of Cohort 9 in Rhode Island at CCRI I met wonderful people and fellow business owners that will become friends and mentors for life. We were honest with each other evaluated our strengths and weaknesses and worked to improve ourselves with a vulnerability that as a CEO you can’t often show publicly. I learned an incredible amount in a fairly short amount of time(it is a major time commitment during the program). I am grateful for the internal team at Back Pocket Resources that encouraged and supported me as I left them to step up and handle the business, which they did in a MAJOR way. I am excited to rejoin the team and work hard to continue to grow Back Pocket Resources in support of the tremendous growth areas of Business Intelligence, Analytics, Data Science, Information Management and Security.
