Area Entrepreneur Gray Somerville will be in town tomorrow night to provide information about his upcoming entrepreneur seminars.
Somerville will be conducting “Entrepreneur Boot Camp” sessions throughout the year in this area. The purpose of these sessions is to help aspiring entrepreneurs launch their businesses.
Somerville will be in town Thursday from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in the Greater Summerville/Dorchester County Chamber of Commerce’s boardroom to answer questions and provide information for people interested in attending the “Entrepreneur Boot Camp” sessions, the first of which will be held July 26.
Somerville helped launch technology company Telogical, which in two years has grown to be a top 1 percent company in South Carolina. Because of that success, Somerville said he wants to help others achieve their dreams.
“Entrepreneurship changed my life,” Somerville said. “When I launched Telogical at 35 years old, I was struggling to provide for my young family. We lived in a tiny 1,100-square-foot house that only had one bathroom, and I drove a 20-year old Toyota Tercel. Since then, things have changed dramatically for me not only financially, but also in terms of personal empowerment. When I go to the office each morning, I am doing work that I love with people that I love in a community that I love. I am incredibly grateful for the blessings I have enjoyed and want to pass along the hard-earned lessons to help others fulfill their entrepreneurial dream.”
As a result, Gray founded “365 Days to Launch.” The goal is to help people at the very earliest stages of their entrepreneurial journeys to get ready to launch a scalable business by providing:
1) A clear end-point vision of what they need to do to launch a high-growth business within 365 days,
2) A step-by-step plan for how to get there,
3) Specific, practical training on how to complete each of the steps, and
4) The opportunity to be part of a continuing community of aspiring entrepreneurs via weekly status reporting, cheerleading, and follow-up events.
“365 Days to Launch” is now accepting applications for the July 26, 2014 Entrepreneur Boot Camp. Application instructions may be found at: http://www.365daystolaunch.com/apply.html
