We worked together  •  Principal/Owner, GTM Transformations.
Aaron, as a principal with TheYesWorks, works with separating service members as they seek guidance in entrepreneurship via pro bono session ... s associated with Boots2Business (SBA supported entrepreneurship program for transitioning Veterans). I am the facilitator for these sessions and am impressed with Aaron's generosity, empathy, and ability to connect with these transitioning service members in a very meaningful fashion during a fast paced 1 and 1/2 hour improvisation training. Aaron is inspirational, personable, authentic, and open as he collaborates with the program participants to broaden their perspectives and stimulate their creative presence. As a small business owner, I am a Chamber of Commerce colleague of Aaron's and appreciate his leadership within our local business community, stimulating everyone with whom he comes in contact to think "outside the box". He is an exemplary role model, one who practices "Yes, and......"
