A Listening Ear, LLC

Name: Cathy Bond

Location: Stone Mountain, GA 

Type of Business:

What does your business do?
A Listening Ear, LLC provides transportation and patient advocacy services to the senior citizens of our communities.

How Many People are in your Company?

Where's your office?
I operate my business from my house out of a spare bedroom that I transformed as a fully functioning office. I have a Large desk, and desk chair, a personal computer, two copiers (one with fax and scanning capabilities), two medium sized bookshelves and a shredder.

What's the toughest part of running your biz?
Since I am still in the hiring process, I think managing the patient advocacy team will be my toughest challenge.

What's the most fun part?
My clients make it all worthwhile. Knowing that I am providing a service that fills a need but also helps family is truly rewarding.

Anything you would have done differently?
As I gain experience I will update this section.

What's next on the horizon for your biz?
Eventually I would like to expand my business in a few other states.

What advice do you have for others?
If you have an idea that you truly feel is worth pursuing...pursue it. Don't let other people's fear of failure stop, delay or postpone your plans. Also be prepared for some of the people you rely on to disappoint you when you need their services. Learn how to do it yourself if you have a low budget or pay someone else to do it but, DON'T, ask that same person to help you again, especially if they didn't have a reason for letting you down the first time. Remember, they are showing you they are unreliable... believe them or pay the consequences with your business.

How do you use Idea Cafe to help your biz?
Again, since I am really new to the site, I found that answering this questions to help others very relaxing.
