My Successes

Athena had her first show in New York City in September, her first hotel show in Bloomfield Hills in early October and her first display at a fashion show in November 2016. She is thrilled to be in business and, of course, is thrilled with the help she received from SCORE.

How SCORE Helped

George knew a woman who had been in this business for a dozen or so years and offered Athena a chance to talk with her.  Athena agreed instantly.  George called the woman in Florida where she spent her winters and asked her to talk with Athena.  She agreed too.  They did talk and, starting in May, they met several times.  Propitiously for both of them, the woman in Florida was thinking of retiring but had not considered how she could sell her inventory at a reasonable price.

George met with Athena in late May.  She told him that the contact her gave her had an inventory of nearly $400,000 which was far above any funds she could amass.  He suggested she consider taking the inventory on consignment with a pre-arranged amount that she would render to the owner upon sale.  She should also ask that the owner help her with an initial show or two, give Athena her customer list and give Athena her list of suppliers in Asia.  Not only did the owner agree to all these conditions but offered to accompany Athena to Asia to meet the suppliers.

Education

Athena Ways-Jamison visited with Detroit SCORE mentor, George Stern, in late March. After spending 20 years in New York City buying accessories for Kenneth Cole designer apparel stores, she had returned to Detroit and was looking to market semiprecious stones from Asia. While she had bought better jewelry for many years, she had no sales experience except in established stores.

Ameneh (Mina) Marhaba
My Location
Dearborn Hts. MI 48127
United States
Year Company Formed
2016
My Successes

After research on the internet, Ameneh had her first success as a chef as she was the featured restauranteur at St. Cece’s restaurant in Corktown on October 11, 2016.

She featured, Tripoli Bites (Mediterranean vegetables), Monrovia Wings (spicy chicken), Palm Butter Stew (beef and chicken with white Jasmine rice) and Banana Rice Bread (served with non-alcoholic Liberian ginger beer) for dessert.

It was so successful, that Mina has already began scheduling her next "pop ups”.

How SCORE Helped

When Ameneh visited with Detroit SCORE mentor, George Stern, she had her heart set on owning a food truck but, after a few minutes of listing the investment required, it became apparent that she could not afford the investment for the expected return she could earn on a part-time basis.

They discussed operating a pop-up in an established restaurant as no license or investment in cooking appliances or pots, cutlery and eating utensils would be required. Ameneh had never known such an option was available.

Education

She is currently studying English and Criminal Justice at Wayne County Community College as she would eventually like to be a lawyer but her passion is cooking, particularly food from her native country.


The Baby Boomer generation is not going quietly into retirement, nor onto their rocking chairs. National surveys conducted by AARP and SBA prove that more than two-thirds of today's workers plan to keep working after retirement and nearly all of them cite the same key reason - they really enjoy the work they do and simply don't want to stop.

Have you ever come across an article on the web that was so obtuse that even if you had a vague idea of the subject matter, you could not figure out what was being said? Subject Matter Experts get so wrapped up in putting their ideas on paper that they forget real people have to read it and try to make some sense out of it.

Everyone understands that advances in health care can be attributed to the significant increase in life expectancy creating nearly one million Florida residents over the age of 85 within the next 3 years. But it's not just health care that is responsible. Many studies point to more active senior lifestyles as contributing to longevity, along with the quadrupling of senior wealth during the recent past.
