Both are corporate escapees, successful entrepreneurs and business consultants, who teach small business owners exactly what it takes to create a lucrative company. Together they have created a new business venture, Starshine Associates, to help start-ups build a business that makes money and makes a difference! 

“Starting a new business can be overwhelming and confusing. We have created a system to cut through the clutter and fast track our clients to be ready to take action in 30 days,” stated Susan F.

Business Education Foundation Receives $500 Walmart Foundation Community Grant

Posted By Nicole Shumate, Arizona Small Business Association, Thursday, June 9, 2016

ASBA is honored and excited to announce that the Business Education Foundation (BEF), a business related party to ASBA, has been awarded a $500 community grant from The Walmart Foundation.

The goal of the Business Education Foundation is to advance the spirit of entrepreneurism by engaging and strengthening small business in Arizona. By providing timely education, hands-on mentoring and necessary resources and assistance, the BEF helps cultivate business owners’ creative vision and helps to transform them into a solid financial future for business owners, their family, their future employees and ultimately, their community, for a stronger Arizona. 

When asked what made ASBA the top recipient for the grant, Walmart store manager, Krissy Lujan, said “Your submission was unique and stood out to me.” She continued, “When choosing a recipient, I want to pick someone who benefits the community, someone who we haven’t helped before and someone that is in our community”.

Krissy expressed to ASBA that not only is it important to thoroughly review applications submitted, but that she strongly felt how important it was for Walmart to truly believe in the mission and values of those organizations awarded. 

Rick Murray, ASBA CEO, expressed “ASBA’s mission is to be the statewide resource for small businesses in Arizona.  The BEF, in collaboration with ASBA, allows us to further educate small business owners, creating opportunities of success.  We are grateful that The Walmart Foundation continues to support our vision through partnership and individual store support.”

We look forward to taking the next step with this grant to educate, energize and empower entrepreneurs.

Jordana Gainsworth was recently named as a Regional Manager for LeTip International. The area she will oversee will be the state of Arizona. She came to LeTip because she appreciates the heart and soul of the business organization and what it's trying to accomplish.

Being a small business owner herself helps her understand the unique and specific needs of other business owners. Being part of the LeTip team, Jordana will help implement tools to help business owners increase their business as well as instruct them in best practices for marketing.

With many interests in her life, including art, traveling, health, Jordana also has a passion for teaching people to work well together and "play nice." Since that is exactly what LeTip does for local businesses, she will be a great asset to the LeTip International team.

“We are delighted to have Jordana as part of our LeTip management team.
