A Milestone Achievement and Exciting New Directions for Employ and Relate

I am thrilled to share with you a recent milestone in both my personal and professional journey. In December 2023, I had the honor of graduating from the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program in Baltimore, an experience that has profoundly enriched my perspective on entrepreneurship and the impact of strategic growth.

Understanding the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program

For those who may not be familiar, the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program is a prestigious initiative designed to foster economic growth and opportunity for entrepreneurs across the United States. By providing access to education, capital, and support services, the program empowers business owners to refine their business strategies, enhance their operations, and expand their networks. This immersive experience is not just about business growth—it’s about cultivating leaders who make meaningful contributions to their communities and industries.

The Birth of HR in a Box

My participation in this transformative program has not only broadened my network and enhanced my business acumen but has also sparked the creation of an innovative new product and service designed to meet the unique needs of small businesses in Maryland. I am proud to introduce “HR in a Box,” a comprehensive toolkit crafted by Employ and Relate to empower small business owners with essential HR resources, tools, and expertise, enabling them to build and manage an effective human resources department.
