Susan Kruger

What educational, entrepreneurial or business development programs, if any, have you taken advantage of?
I participate in several marketing courses and mastermind groups.

Who was your first customer and where did you find them?
My very first customer was a family in Kalamazoo, where I attended college. I tutored their children in study skills. I met them through a local school, where I distributed flyers.

Where did you find your first employee?
She was my son's preschool teacher. My question to you is where can I find a good candidate? Most job posting services provide horrible results.

Have you promoted an intern to employee status, and if so how many times have you done it?
No, I have never had an intern.

Where have you turned to find capital to grow your company and which institutions have provided it?
We are self-funded.

What are some of the advantages to doing business here?
It's home.

If you could change one thing about this region, what would it be?
The weather. Since that's not possible, I don't have any other suggestions off-hand. So much of my business is "virtual" that I don't feel very dependent on the local area for resources, yet I have made an effort to bring as many of my production and fulfillment services into Oakland County as possible.
