Today, Tana Greene shares her story as a successful entrepreneur and mentor. At the age of 17, she wrote a goal on a piece of paper: “own my own business by the age 30.” It was a far cry from where she was but you’ll hear why it wasn’t a long shot at all. With each passing year, her purpose beat louder and grew stronger. Along the way, the business became clear – she wanted to help others by finding them employment. Owning her own business became a reality in 1988, when she co-founded a national staffing company that grew to operate in more than 20 states. In 2017, she guided the company’s transformation into MyWorkChoice. With over 30 years of experience in the industry she saw first-hand the changing needs of the contingent workforce and understood the vital role flexibility and technology must play moving forward. MyWorkChoice is the first workforce solution for warehousing, logistics, call center, and light industrial companies that allows employees to make decisions about how often and when they work. Through an easy to use mobile app, MyWorkChoice embraces flexibility by empowering workers to design their own schedule and creates a culture of performance and accountability evidenced by fill rates averaging above 95%. MyWorkChoice is the dependable, all-in-one workforce solution that scales alongside business needs. Tana’s purpose is to “ignite joy”. As a teenage mother and a survivor of domestic violence, she shares her journey with us. She’s also shared it countless other times and has become a vital part of Safe Alliance. Tana discusses how important goal setting and core values are for business – as well as the importance of mentor relationships with other entrepreneurs (she’s been a mentor to many Charlotte area entrepreneurs including Betsy Hauser Idilbi who was on the podcast a few years ago). She shares stories about the beginnings of their staffing business, the challenges of franchising, and what she learned along the way through some of their failures. We discuss the future of the staffing business and technology’s role -which she admits has been a learning process. Don’t miss this podcast and hear Tana’s passion to “ignite joy” by sharing her story to help other people. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our 100th episode of the Charlotte Angel Connection Podcast. Tana embodies all that an entrepreneur, investor, mentor and ecosystem member should have. Be bold, make decisions, learn by them and help others along the way.
