The first thing that comes to mind on something I learned is ensuring you focus on core competencies when running a business. Too many small companies try to do everything versus focusing on those capabilities that they do very well. I still practice that today. We focus on the core services we can provide while utilizing the experts in those areas that are not our core competencies; i.e. accounting, legal, payroll, HR, contracts, etc.

Doctor of Management
After I got out of the Navy, I needed a university that would help me transition to civilian life. At UMGC, my military advisor had my back every step of the way. I learned the management skills that allowed me to become a partner in a fitness company. Now, I'm making a real difference, and it's the best feeling ever!
Management Studies Bachelor's Degree
My UMGC professors had the ability to really drill down and press me for the most critical responses and reactions, whether in a paper, a presentation, or some other mode of dialog. That encouraged me to go deeper in terms of my critical thinking.
