Maple Heights Branch

Large Meeting Room (56)

Meet and learn from local entrepreneurs and business owners in our community. Each month, a different presenter will speak and answer your business related questions.

On April 9th, we welcome Daz Patterson, a husband, father, and the founder and Executive Director of ACTION Community Outreach Inc. His journey in entrepreneurship began with a desire to live life God’s way and help others do the same. Over the past 10 years, he has built ACTION from a student organization at Ohio University to a 6 figure business that serves youth and young adults throughout Greater Cleveland and beyond.  The mission of ACTION is to help ACTION Takers to discover their purpose and fulfill their missions by providing education, relationships and opportunities. He and some of his team will join us to share ACTION’s Legacy Blueprint Training, which is the first step to make fulfilling your personal mission a simple routine rather than a frustrating mess.  You can learn more about ACTION at the company's website.

Recently featured on Fox 8’s New Day Cleveland, Rhonda Stubbs-Tatum AKA “Chef Rhonda” is the owner of Flava Catering Cleveland and Flava Catering Live in Garfield Heights.  She began her entrepreneurial journey in 2011 with an event planning business before deciding to use her background in culinary arts to create delicious meals from scratch for private clients.  She caters for corporate and private events along with providing lunches to several schools and daycares in the area.  Earlier this year, Chef Rhonda opened her first brick and mortar restaurant and introduced her own line of flavorful seasonings.  Please join us May 14th as Chef Rhonda talks about her journey, what it takes to be successful in the restaurant business, and how to build a brand.
