INTRODUCING THE CREDIT-BY-EXAMINATION
BRIDGE PROGRAM
Our innovative program enables you to get full credit for college courses through
standardized exams. A pass, gets you the same credit from a college as if you passed
the exam at the college. And there are no semester long courses.

I work with individuals who want to go back to school to earn their degrees. I assess their current college credits and create a degree plan that works for them. They are then able to earn their degree faster, spending a lot less money and end up in higher paying jobs.

Business start-up experience

Moxipure(TM) is an all natural and organic body products made for people who want chemical free products. My daughter and I developed this need out of need. She has very sensitive skin and other products in the market just were not helping. So we set out to find a solution for her.

What it takes to run this business is being a self-motivated, strategic-minded, compassionate, organized and committed person.

What I have learned along the way;
Develop recipes from scratch
Learned all about trade-marking
Create and manage barcodes
Work with co-packers
Finance - create P&L
Providing quotes to customers /distributors
Order Management to ensure product is delivered
Developed vendor/supplier relationships
Developed marketing materials and artwork needed for print
Utilized software to leverage operations of the organization

Being a creative problem-solver is necessary along with being able to adjust quickly.
