Chelle Hartzer, 360 Pest and Food Safety Consulting, and Olivia Garza, Acton Academy Alpharetta (Family Business Radio, Episode 32)
Host Anthony Chen welcomed two outstanding guests, Chelle Hartzer and Oliva Garza, to this episode of Family Business Radio. Chelle, a self-described “bug geek,” is an entomologist with her own consulting practice, 360 Pest and Food Safety Consulting. Chelle discussed how she works with small to medium-sized pest control companies as a fractional trainer and consultant, her work with museums, zoos, and other organizations with special bug-related issues, why successful pest control is more preventative than treated related and much more.
Olivia Garza, Owner of Acton Academy Alpharetta, discussed the unique, learner-driven model of the school, why she started Acton Academy, what makes the school unique, the focus on subject mastery, and much more.
In Anthony’s closing comments, he spoke on why planning for the passions of your children is such a vital aspect of financial planning.
