ACWN Newsletter | March 2009 Martha Perez Our guest speaker for February was Martha Perez, owner of Jose’s Restaurant in Jackson. Martha shared her fascinating story with us. Imagine coming to a new country and not even being able to speak the language. That is what Martha did! She learned English in order to get a better job. Jose’s Restaurant is a local favorite and there are many great reasons for that. Martha shared with us many business tips that have contributed to her success. She believes that word of mouth advertising is crucial, and that “You have to keep your name out there”. Martha is very involved in the community with charity functions and television to remind people about her business. Martha encouraged us as a group to support one another and share business ideas that will help us all grow our businesses. Martha has survived many tough times and her advice for us is to think positive and to keep going even when times get tough. When it comes to her staff, they are “like family” to her. She feels that she has the best employees in the county. She promotes a friendly atmosphere in her restaurant and wants every customer to leave happy. Martha is an inspiration to us all. We were lucky indeed to have her share her business savvy with us. Thanks Martha!
