Imagine a tour guide, teacher, mentor, geek-speak translator and business owner attuned to your industry or sector, all rolled into one. Imagine someone that listens to your goals, before you even join the program, and then points out all the best workshops, so you can target those goals. Imagine a person that you can connect with, after a session, to help clarify things that you might not fully understand. Imagine someone that is connected to the best and the brightest in the Small Business world and can connect you with all the resources you need to successfully launch your business.
THAT is a Business Works for Youth Coach.
LARRY EARNHART, BUSINESS COACH – VICTORIA
As Larry puts it: At every fork in the road I’ve come to I’ve always taken the road less travelled. I started out wanting to be a Chemistry Professor but after earning my Ph.D. I moved to the chemical industry, taking on a chemical engineer’s role operating chemical plants. After I got a free MBA courtesy of my company’s educational perks I was laid off so I moved from Los Angeles, USA to Victoria BC and bought a restaurant, then sold it, became a financial advisor then bought a handyman franchise and sold it. Along the way I started teaching online business classes at a local University then I realized that with all my experience I could help budding entrepreneurs as a business coach and consultant. Now working with ETHOS to train budding young entrepreneurs in the Business Works Youth program is a natural progression.”

TAMARA CAMERON, DIRECTOR — LEARNING INNOVATIONS + TECHNOLOGY
When I moved from teaching into online education,’ explains Tamara Cameron, ‘I needed assistance in so many things. I needed to learn about the art of page design, about composition, virtual classroom technology, editing tools and more, and about how to translate those skills into a successful business. I found that there were few educational consultant training courses readily available online, or indeed in-person, teaching those types of skills. So, after learning from friends within the industry, I’m here to promote the Business Works message, to help aspiring and professional entrepreneurs to add to their skills base by utilising our archive of video content and forthcoming classes.’
