Testimonials

 “Thank you AAEA!  Joining this organization was one of the best business decisions I could have made.  Opening a business is not easy and having great resources is a critical key to surviving.  The AAEA and its staff have been a wealth of knowledge and I am truly grateful.  To top it off, I was approved in lightning speed for the PPP loan, something that will be a great help to my business during this pandemic.  If you haven’t already, JOIN!  The information is out there, the help is available and Leslie and his team will make it happen!  Thanks so much AAEA!  I appreciate all that you do!”

Artashea L. Batts

“Leslie and his team always answer all my questions and connect me with the right partners. The continued training classes via zoom have helped bring VALUE to my business and the mentorship Leslie has provided allowed my mobile notary business to grow. I will always be grateful for the connections and mentorship that the AAEA has offered me. Thank you, Leslie! You and your team have been an essential part of making my business a success.”

Betsy A. Jimenez, Betsy's Notary Services, LLC

“Becoming a member of AAEA is one of the best memberships my business possesses.  The help and guidance I receive from Leslie and staff has made and is making a huge difference in my business.  Sometimes is not what you know, but who you know.  Thanks, AAEA for your help and support!”

Starting a trucking company with intent to onboard drivers and owner operators
Long Business Description

The business will start with 2 drivers who will run off of government contracts or the load board. I want to onboard as many drivers as possible owner operators or drivers of my own. In the next 5 to 10 years we will switch slowly to the self driving trucks to expand the business.
