What is your background?

I worked for IBM fresh out of college for thirteen years. While my children were small, I worked part-time in a variety of positions until I started my company in October 2000. Since I worked for the Streetsboro Area Chamber of Commerce just before that, I had experience with event planning so becoming a meeting planner seemed like a natural fit. That’s how I started Mulligan Management Group, but in 2009 I switched focus to online marketing and slowly dropped the event marketing angle.

Why did you become an entrepreneur?

Because my children were relatively young and I initially worked out of my home, I wanted to manage my schedule to match the needs of my children. I’m also a hard worker, so it seemed probable that if I did all the right things, I could make a decent income. Lastly, I’m curious in nature, so it seemed like a good fit to return to my technology/analytical roots and tackle this animal called social media/blogging.

What are your business goals?

To maintain over twenty-five clients every month, have four-five employees and make a profit. Attract more hospitality, manufacturing, local government and schools as clients.

Why did you choose Tech Hub Hudson?

Location – myself and my employees either live in Hudson, Stow or Twinsburg. Internet speed – having fast, reliable internet is a big deal to us as we are on the internet from the beginning to the end of the day.

What kind of membership did you have?

Office with guest passes

What advice would you give another entrepreneur/remote worker?

Know and review your business goals. Work hard. Hire the right people and put the right people in the right seats. Always be curious and learn. Be open to client feedback. Don’t take things so personally.
