SHOW NOTES: In our ENTREPRENEUR EXPOSE´™ series we explore the reality of business opportunities for "non-traditional" individuals and organizations. For those individuals who think that business success is not possible due to their lack of connections or resources, this is the place where we interview successful people in a variety of businesses who created their own path to success. No matter where you born, your family of origin, your age, ethnicity or any other characteristic, you are a unique individual who can achieve what you desire!
In this episode we have the pleasure of interviewing businessman, John Derr. Mr. Derr is the owner of The LornaDave Agency (LornaDave.com) in the Allentown, Pennsylvania area (USA).
