Small Business Spotlight - Angel // Academic Coach

This interview was conducted as a part of YourLocalBizPro’s Small Business Spotlight. Angel Dieguez, the owner of Academic Coach, was gracious enough to participate and offer 50% off the first hour of tutoring for the week of 10/4/20 - 10/10/20 when you mention this interview!

What inspired you to start your tutoring business, “Academic Coach”?

“I've always had a passion for teaching, but the classroom setting was not for me. So, I went with Plan B.”

What is your favorite part about being a business owner?

“My favorite part about being a business owner is the flexibility I have with what I can do inside of the business.”

Is there anyone from your childhood who encouraged your entrepreneurial spirit?

“My mother always worked 2-3 jobs when I was young. She instilled a strong work ethic in me.”

Who in your adult life encourages your entrepreneurial spirit?

“I'm a big fan of Gary Vee. He's a great, humble motivational speaker.”

What is something people should know about academia or tutoring?

“People should know that it's never too late to learn something new.”
