Gary mentioned the PeeD article Desiree is referring to at the 3rd Fri Friends Lunch today:
Who is fostering that sentiment? The people commenting for the article? The firms that are supposed to be fostering business in Cleveland?
You are telling us as entrepreneurs that we must suck? Because you need to go elsewhere to find brain gain?
I’m a little salty and pissed off. No one has helped me with my business. These firms say I don’t fit their target audience??? So my business is self funded and operates on its own. I have no credit. I have no mentor. In fact, I have no support systems. So when rain storms like today flood my shop? Oh yeah. It’s me who has to fix it AND keep the money flowing.
How about catering to the talent that has chosen to stay on in this hardship we know as Cleveland? Where is the support and funding for those pioneers or hangers on? I’ve been told countless times to move my Concierge Service to Portland, L.A., D.C., etc. I’ve been offered funding by investors to relocate to another city… But I choose to stay here…
And how about not insulting us when you haven’t done your homework to know who is out here standing behind Cleveland and might I say… kicking a$$…
Apparently, there’s a press conference about this soon. I need to connect Desiree and Gary…
