I have always enjoyed teaching to help inspire others to achieve success. As a parent I often talk to my own children about performing chores, schoolwork, and sports with ‘purpose’. If you’re going to be doing something you should embrace why and how it will benefit you, then act with purpose to the best of your ability.

This summer we decided to start a summer internship program. Our goal is to expose each student to a variety of business processes, technology tools, and business trends. I want them to use this knowledge to think about a career after college, purposely charting a path forward and seeing their bright futures. The enthusiasm they have shown so far is really exciting; each week that passes they are learning how setting goals, working as a team, and getting outside a comfort zone allows them to ‘level-up’ and take on new  – and sometimes difficult – challenges in stride.



We are in the midst of a massive generational workforce and technology shift. 10,000 Boomers reach retirement age everyday, and many of them are leaving the traditional workforce to start businesses for the first time. They often find that traditional technology used for running a business is very expensive, and some companies may make the mistake of buying servers and software they will have to manage and upgrade constantly. Luckily today’s entrepreneurs have a clean slate, and if they are smart, they can avoid this unnecessary overhead. The cloud provides numerous options that are much less expensive for managing finance, HR, marketing, point-of-sales, and customer service.

For existing business that are still using traditional on-premise hardware, software, and paper-based processes it will be much harder to remain competitive in the future. Our intern team is reaching out to many of these longstanding businesses in Tacoma and Pierce County to share how theytoo, can find a better path forward. This path will allow them to reduce costs, remain competitive, and be better positioned to attract the next great workforce.

It was my turn to make something awesome.
