MUSKEGON, MI – The Muskegon Rotary Club’s Business Connection gathering Thursday, Oct. 16 will involve creating new businesses in the community.
Leading a conversation on developing a new business and keeping it going will be Chad Lawie, who has created LongerDays.com. Lowie will provide the behind-the-scenes experience of starting the new “virtual assistant” business in Muskegon.
Rotary Business Connection is open to the public beginning at 4:30 p.m. with informal networking, a brief presentation at 4:50 p.m. and general discussion of new business development at 5:30 p.m. The event is at Grand Valley State University’s Michigan Alternative and Renewable Energy Center, 200 Viridian Drive.
The business began serving clients in the new digital world, providing from customer service assistance to website development and maintenance. Clients around the world are able to be served from offices here in Muskegon.
The business grew from offices in the Hovey House in the Nelson Neighborhood to the larger business incubator space of GVSU’s Michigan Alternative and Renewable Energy Center in the Harbor 31 business park on Muskegon Lake.
Also speaking at the Rotary Business Connection will be Joe Graczyk, a new business development consultant and GVSU visiting management professor. Graczyk helped LongerDays.com as it worked through its growing pains.
Beer, wine and refreshments will be provided at the Rotary Business Connection, which is designed, especially for young professionals, to network, find potential mentoring opportunities through Muskegon Rotary Club members and explore career advancements.
