It was almost a year ago that I met John Harmata at the APSS Conference in Philadelphia. His wit, wisdom, and personal journey as an entrepreneur and author inspired me and I know will inspire you today on The LinkedIn Lady Show. John Harmata, a.k.a. Mr. Edge, was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. Working part-time had allowed him to pay his way through college where he earned a degree and certification as an X-ray technologist.
John’s story of how he became a successful entrepreneur started with a friend who introduced him to the skating business. I will let him tell you about how his medical training and passion for the sport of skating led to his techniques resulting in reduced skating injuries and overall improvement in skating performance. John is the author of the award-winning book Anatomy of a Figure Skating Injury. His story will be an inspiration to fledgling as well as experienced entrepreneurs. John will share how and why he got started with his own business, how he overcame obstacles along the way, the road to profitability, and his sage advice for wanna-be business owners and authors.
