Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!
You're IT Center of the Bullseye Consulting!
Three questions with Thomas Mcgarrity Sr., founder of the Center of the Bullseye Consulting.
Why did you start your business?
I got my career in advertising thanks to a mentor at my college (Colgate University) so mentoring has always been important for me as a way to “give back”. I volunteered at Colgate for over 20 years mentoring students and helping them find jobs. I opened up my company—Center of the Bullseye—to do the same locally in the Greenwich area. MOST young people need help learning how to find a job!
What is your best-selling product/service?
I use the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) to help people understand their strengths and weaknesses. I am certified to analyze the results. To put it in the simplest terms, I want to have a right-handed person find a right-handed job. The MBTI helps do that.
Have you "reimagined" your small business?
Prior to Covid, I thought it was essential to meet personally with people. Part of the training is personal skills (as in Dale Carnegie training). During Covid, I see that video chats are a good replacement. When things get closer to normal, I will probably do a combination of video and in person.
Thomas would like to nominate Caren’s Cos Cobber restaurant to be featured next!
