With help from BACD’s Summer Company program I was able to start my own swimming lessons business called “Garrett’s Swim Crew”. I had a very successful summer and was able to teach over 50 different swimmers. The first week of summer was fairly busy but I was not even close to having enough clients for the rest of the summer. Fortunately, there was a business meeting about marketing that gave me some good ideas on how to connect with customers, such as libraries and youth sport organizations. Soon enough, more people were answering my ads and clients were recommending me to their friends. After my second week my schedule was full. The summer company program also gave me valuable advice and helped me stay organized. Without the grant and guidance from BACD I would not have been able to grow my business the way I did. I am looking forward to many more summers teaching swimming lessons. Overall, it was a really fun summer being my own boss.
