Our conversation today is part of an ongoing partnership with the US Small Business Administration highlighting small businesses as well as offering advice and resources to small businesses.
My co-host today was Carl Knoblock, Virginia District Director for the SBA. Joining Carl was Tyrone Logan, CEO and Co-Founder of Obsidian Solutions Group. Obsidian Solutions Group is an analysis, systems integration and training company that focuses on national security. Tyrone has been named Virginia’s – Richmond District ‘Small Business Person of the Year’ by the Small Business Administration (SBA).
Tyrone told us how his business started and the growth they've experienced - expanding recently into manufacturing. We talked about the role that SBA played in his business journey and he offered advice to other small business owners looking to start or grow their business.
Carl talked about the changes in manufacturing with the advances in technology and explained that blue-collar jobs, once considered "dirty," are now "blue sky" clean jobs.
