I’m just going to list what my changes/accomplishments have been:
- Starting to work on my business plan has been eye opening. I am not there yet, but I am well on my way to a solid plan that will help guide my future steps and open doors to financial opportunities.
- I have a much clearer understanding of what my target market is.
- I attained a virtual office with a brick and mortar address through Fuse in Lyndhurst, NJ.
- Though I had an LLC, it was registered in Delaware. I am now registered in NJ. My business is now «real» and NJ based.
- I am Google verified.
- I opened a business bank account.
- I will be registered with local government purchasing portals.
- I have made endless connections through networking with fellow classmates and people I have met through the program and the SHCCNJ, as a whole.
- I have a solid elevator pitch.
- I have attended networking events on my own and navigated those waters, well.
- I have learned that I will make mistakes but that these are learning experiences and that it will be ok. I’m going to pick myself back up and keep on going.
- Above all, I have gained more confidence as a business owner. I don’t feel like I am doing this blindfolded, in a fog. I have a «toolbox» of knowledge to draw from. I have a clear direction for my business and what my next steps are. I CAN do this. I cannot express enough gratitude for the gift of being part of this HETP program.
Thank you to the SHCCNJ for this opportunity!

Miguel Saire – Zena Italian Designs
I applied for the HETP program because I wanted to start a business based on what is my passion Art and writing. I teach fashion design and cooking. I took the time to acquire the knowledge and experience to provide my students. Also, I am constantly studying and renovating to give more to them. However, I lacked the knowledge I acquired in HETP. Here I learned about business regulations. In addition of advantages and disadvantages of the kind of business that I want to start. I found more than what I was looking for, a familiar and very professional environment. A team of people with enough ethics to deliver the students more than what they offered.
Thank you to the whole team now I know where to start and where to go.
