What makes your business one of the best small businesses in your community?
OUR WHY! We create a synchronous space for collaboration, knowledge transfer, relationship sharing, and resource leveraging; and by seeing the big picture, we help our clients do the same. MMI provides training and support to the Department of Defense. We understand the importance of our work and take great pride in the Training and Financial services we provide. MMI focuses on providing innovative, comprehensive, knowledge and skill based training solutions. We create a confident, empowered, capable workforce that is one of many links that supports the warfighters in protecting the security of our country and community.

How has working with a SCORE mentor helped your business?
So many challenges have presented themselves through our journey of developing a small business. Some of these challenges were to be expected, while others we were unable to fathom since we had never undergone this endeavor. This is where the mentor / protégé relationship with Karen Williams has been invaluable. Karen's willingness to assist and guide us for no personal gain has been truly instrumental in our growth as a small business. To have the ability to defer to the expertise of someone who has been where we desire to go, and is actively navigating us through the avoidance of pitfalls and common mistakes that plague so many in our position, is nothing less than spectacular.
Please describe the specific ways that your business has been successful and how it will grow in the next year.
MMI Consulting Group has successfully maintained its current contract with the Department of Defense and has organically grown the contract. This has allowed us to experience a 200% growth in employment, and 150% growth in revenue. Over the next year MMI will continue to build our past performance through multiple sub-contracting opportunities. These new opportunities will provide us with a more diverse portfolio. We’re currently working on our 8(a) application and anticipate priming a Federal contract by the end of 2018. We look forward to employing and empowering 20+ individuals in 2018.
