"State Your Plan" with Yvonne Addison, MBA, PMP - Owner of Addison Prime

Episode Summary

In this episode, we speak to Yvonne Addison, MBA, PMP about her strategy when starting her business. Yvonne started her professional career as a Mechanical Engineer for an aerospace company. She knew there was more out there, and that she was capable for more than the typical 8-5. Yvonne completed her Project Management Professional Certification (PMP), but the drive to continue learning did not yield. She went back and earned her MBA through the Executive MBA Program at the University of Texas at San Antonio. Shortly after, she became the President of the Junior League of San Antonio where she led the League through uncharted territory. Yvonne has also served on the board for the South San Antonio Chamber, and has served on the board for the UTSA Alumni where she is currently the President. In our conversation, we discuss what it was like going from Mechanical Engineering, to non-profit, then back to the for profit segment. She also provides valuable information on resources available to business owners who are looking for help. Preparing and updating your business plan is a forte, and she even provides some tips on managing your personal credit score! All of which are extreme necessities, especially as we are moving more and more into a time of uncertainty.
