Hi, I’m Andrew Mazer. In 1986, I started my own company, Mazer Wholesale. This business mainly served hardware stores, $1 stores and other independently-owned retailers. It still exists today!
In 2000, I started marketing my business online. I got pretty good at it and eventually, I was serving customers all over the country...and I still do today!
I started encouraging a couple of friends of mine who had their own businesses to get online and start marketing their business as I did. With my help, they met with similar success.
Realizing I had developed the knowledge, experience and valuable skills of an expert, I decided make a business of becoming a marketing consultant and service provider.
I've always loved being of service to small business owners. First it was with merchandise they were buying from my company and selling it for a profit. Now I deliver essential 21st Century style marketing services. It's a great feeling to be an important part of so many business owners' lives.
The Challenge For Business Owners
Who Can You Trust? Business owners understand everything about their business except the web stuff.
I started Small Business U because I saw business owners struggling with understanding how the internet and a website could help them.
When you don't know what you don't know, it's not easy to know what you're missing! It's also impossible to make good decisions about what to do, who to hire or even what to expect from investing in a website or internet marketing services. So I invited business owners to short seminars under the title, Small Business University.
I have been able to improve the lives of many more business owners by way of educating them on the important subject of marketing online. This is a thrill for me.
Sometimes I teach them and they take over. Sometimes they hire me and I do the work for them.
The Small Business U MASTERMIND GROUP
Napoleon Hill wrote about the mastermind group principle as: “The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony.”
Mastermind groups offer a combination of brainstorming, education, peer accountability and support in a group setting to sharpen your business and personal skills. A mastermind group helps you and your mastermind group members achieve success.
Participants challenge each other to set powerful goals, and more importantly, to accomplish them. The group requires commitment, confidentiality, willingness to both give and receive advice and ideas, and support each other with total honesty, respect and compassion. Mastermind group members act as catalysts for growth, devil’s advocates and supportive colleagues. This is the essence and value of mastermind groups.
