Part 1: The Inspiration - Lessons Learned from Small Business Owners

This is part one of a 3-part series. 

WTS-SF Bay Area and the Mineta Transportation Institute (MTI) of San Jose State invite you to join us for a virtual event "How to Be Your Own Boss Without Going Broke or Crazy - Part 1." Thinking about starting a consulting business? While the idea is exciting, the actual process can be quite daunting. Join us for this three-part series about starting your own business to help you get on your way.

This first session is an opportunity to talk with three business owners about how they started off, what they've learned on the way, and their successes and challenges. We've allotted plenty of time to get your questions answered. Panelists include:

1. Eileen Goodwin, President, Apex Strategies

2. Ronny Kraft, Principal Transportation Planner, Ronny Kraft Consulting

3. Dominic Tafoya, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, VST Engineering
