Lynne Schrieber

What educational, entrepreneurial or business development programs, if any, have you taken advantage of?
Zingerman's E-Club was instrumental in the creation and ongoing development
of my business.

Who was your first customer and where did you find them?
Hiller's Markets. I emailed Jim Hiller, a cold-call really, and said I believed I could provide some value. We met and clicked and I spent the next two years handling all marketing, website, event planning and public relations for the company as my company continued to grow. Jim was a wonderful mentor for my early business growth.

Where did you find your first employee?
Word-of-mouth and Facebook

Have you promoted an intern to employee status, and if so how many times have you done it?
Not yet. All employees are part-time on project-to-project basis

Where have you turned to find capital to grow your company and which institutions have provided it?
I have a line of credit from Chase Bank. Thankfully, I haven't needed to use it much.

What do you see in Metro Detroit that other people who live outside the area don't?
Honesty. Simplicity. Down-to-earth authenticity.

What are some of the advantages to doing business here?
Its home. I know the landscape, the street names, the history and want to be part of the future. That commitment goes a long way - for my clients too.
