YOUR YEOMAN SALUTED FOR SERVICE Concierge Company Selected for Inc. Magazine Conference Delegat
Bill and Lori Clinton, of Your Yeoman, in Chesapeake, were welcomed to the 2012 Inc. Magazine Grow Your Company Conference (GROWCO), in New Orleans, as military entrepreneur attendees.
At GROWCO, Bill and Lori heard the former president talk about the state of small businesses in America. During his speech, President Clinton asked Bill to stand and saluted his service. Later, the couple was able to unfold their upcoming sponsorship package plan with Bob LaPointe who shared specific insights. “Mr. LaPointe gave us some very valuable insight and thoughts of things that we could do with it. It is always nice to get another perspective before jumping in,” Lori shared.
“Starting your own business is tough, but having people around you that are encouraging will go a long way with hard work, persistence, and enthusiasm,”
In 2011, Inc. Magazine launched a program with Joining Forces to offer one-on-one mentoring to veteran owned and military spouse owned businesses. Entrepreneurs receive scholarships to Inc. Magazine conferences and meetings with successful entrepreneurs. “The encouragement that we were given was amazing! The other military delegates were so pumped up that it was infectious! I loved it!” Lori said.
