Apologies to those hoping to read a post last week - between the holiday and moving I couldn't get my act together to post - but this week I've got good news!
I'll be presenting to the Frankford Business Association at 4667 Paul St on May 2, from 6-8pm. The topic will be on retail and real estate, where I'll be providing an overview of the brick and mortar retail process, from concept to leasing and construction. Admission is free for members of the business association, $15 for non-members. Please spread the word to your networks - the more people that can attend the better!
And check back next week where I hope to have my 2nd interview done, with Jesse Blitzstein of The Enterprise Center.
SSC Solutions is proud to announce that it is has been engaged by Chris Landtroop and Queerality LLC to provide business and financial coaching services.

There's been quite a lot happening since the start of the new year, so I wanted to make everyone aware of what's going on with SSC so far in 2018!

2. Membership with CCSNJ!
After being invited to attend a Haddon Avenue Business Association meeting by my friend Jonathan Wetstein, I met Lisa Hurd, Membership Director at the Chamber of Commerce - Southern New Jersey. I was so impressed at what she had to say about their organization that I decided to make SSC Solutions a member! So as of Jan 1 this year, SSC Solutions is a proud member of the CCSNJ. Very excited to see how SSC can make an impact on the other side of the Delaware!
3. Engagement with Community Grants, Planning, & Housing!
Since October 2017 SSC Solutions had been working with New Jersey-based planning consulting firm Community Grants, Planning & Housing (CGP&H) on various grant applications, planning matters and site-selection research to support the development of affordable and mixed income housing project throughout New Jersey. That relationship continued to mature in late December, when I was brought on board to be part of CGP&H's staff on a part-time basis. Going forward, I will be working 25 hours a week for one of New Jersey's best affordable housing Administrative Agents and grant writing organizations!
