Thank you for your interest in my internship program!
10 years ago, I started a company in the food and beverage industry called Bare Organic Mixers. I was in total startup mode, and I had to get creative about building a team that wasn’t going to drain all of my resources. I knew I had to create a system that would allow me to hire, onboard, train, and get some of my most critical work done in the most efficient and effective way without spending a lot of time managing people.
Interns became the answer to many of my startup problems.
At first, I began working with local schools, namely UCSD and SDSU, to find the best and most professional interns, and then I started including virtual interns from all over the country to my team. Each semester, I learned more tips, tools, and strategies for creating a valuable, productive, and mutually beneficial internship program. After many years of tweaking the process, I have perfected a system for setting up an intern program that doesn’t require a lot of resources to organize, set up, and manage.
Last year, I managed 6 interns, (the biggest team to date), and I was able to take on twice as many clients and offer my team a robust professional experience where they had opportunities to learn, grow, and take ownership of projects they wouldn’t normally have access to until after graduation.
One of my favorite parts of being an entrepreneur is my intern program. I love working with colleges students because they are eager to learn, interested in professional and personal development, and dedicated to creating a future for themselves that is full of purpose and passion.
And from a logistical and monetary perspective, interns offer startups, sole proprietors, and service-based businesses the ability to create a quality team at the fraction of the cost.
In my program, you will work with the best interns and you will learn how to set them up for success and manage them in the most efficient and effective way, so everyone gains a mutually beneficial experience that fosters growth and innovation, and most importantly, moves your company in a positive direction without costing you a lot of time, money, or energy.
Looking forward to speaking with you,
Thank you to our partner at UCSD!
