cordially invite you to attend a

Business Coaching Seminar for Presidents & CEOs

Presented by

Richard J. Otero Sr.

Founder & President of
and founder & former owner of RJO Enterprises

Meet three of the most successful former 8(a), small, and now large business owners—who effectively used the 8(a) program to build their wealth and are now willing to share some of their “Secrets to Success” with you.

"Three Titans who grew small businesses into large enterprises
right in your own backyard"

What if you could meet with Jack Welch, Peter Drucker, Bill Gates, and Ross Perot and could grill them for up to 2 hours on how they built their businesses into world-class firms?  What if I told you that we had four individuals, equally successful as the above business legends, titans in their own regard.  The four that I refer to all started with virtually no capital and built incredibly successful businesses, despite the fact that they were all minorities, struggling in a market dominated by long-established, well financed and politically connected competitors.  In other words, their stories of success more closely mirror your experiences, are more relevant to your business than to an existing billion dollar corporation that some inherited from others and their business strategies and tactics were implemented through their personal visions, management skills and tireless efforts.

Who are these success stories?

  • Dario O. Marquez – Founder and current Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of MVM, Inc.
  • Rocky D. Cintron, President and Chief Executive Officer, Force 3, Inc.
  • William Soza, Former Founder and President of Soza & Company, LTD.

Come meet with's ( Dick Otero, every bit a success story in his own right, as he serves as the moderator of a panel consisting of all of the above titans of business asking them leading questions first and then opening it up for you to probe for those “secrets” that made these business owners into the success stories that they will share with you.

Dick will ask each of these fellow business leaders to share with you:

  • What led them to start their businesses?
  • How did they finance their business in the early days?
  • How did they attract and retain the various stakeholders that assisted them along the way to their success?
  • What was their experience in using the 8(a) program as a springboard for their business growth?
  • What were the largest challenges they faced in surviving, growing and succeeding and what tips can they pass on to the business leaders of the future?
  • What organizations that they were members of assisted them in the various facets of their business operations?
  • How would they describe their management style and what setbacks and successes did they enjoy from “doing it their way”?
  • What are the greatest obstacles that they see that keep more minority-owned businesses from achieving the level of success that they have achieved?
  • What is the single greatest lesson that they learned that assisted them to reach their business objectives?

In addition to the above priceless insights, you will be encouraged to ask any questions of your choice and personally interact with the above titans.
