The Mid-Atlantic Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
invites you to attend its annual seminar series
2011-2012 Business Coaching Seminars for Presidents and CEO’s:
“Succeeding with 8(a) and FederalProcurement”
led by Dick Otero of EZcertify.com and its team of nationally ranked business consultants.
Have you ever wondered why some of your 8(a) federally certified fellow business owners grow to incredible size, succeed beyond any reasonable person’s dream, graduate from the 8(a) program without missing a beat, and eventually get sold, or continue their operations post 8(a) graduation generating millions of dollars in wealth for their owners?
If this thought has ever crossed your mind, and you’re willing to invest a few hours of your time, each month, over the next 12 months actively interacting with, and learning from, former 8(a) Presidents and owners “who have already made it”, and who are now living the good life and are willing to share their career experiences with you, then EZCertify.com, The Fairfax Business Coach, the Alexandria Chamber, the Greater Springfield Chamber and the Mid-Atlantic Hispanic Chamber of Commerce have a very special invitation for you.
