Submitted bio: Chaz started his business, Get-U_Connected LLC, in 2009 to connect small business owners with the products, services, & people they need to succeed. One of his early clients was the City of Dublin’s Economical Development Department, when he was asked to manage the new Dublin Entrepreneurial Center (DEC). He also manages the Marysville Entrepreneurial Center (MEC) for Union County CIC over the past four years, and on the Governing Board of the new Ohio Christian University Business Innovation Center (OCUBIC), which opened in late 2017.

In 2015, Chaz was approached by Union County to explore the national franchise program known as “YEA!” It is a 30-class, 99-hour program that takes middle and high school students, and turns them into CEO’s of their own real businesses. He has launched YEA! Programs in both Union & Pickaway counties, near the three entrepreneur centers. He is actively helping YEAUSA to find additional locations to start new classes. YEA! Graduates over 1,500 students a year.

Chaz accepted Jesus Christ into his heart in middle school while in a huddle of Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) in Upper Arlington. He continues his passion for The Lord while serving many roles within FCA. In addition, he leads middle school “Impact” ministry at Encounter Church in Dublin, and has coached soccer for 19 years. Chaz met his future wife at Wittenberg University, from where they both graduated. They live in Dublin and have two daughters, Meghan & Amanda, both graduates of OSU.

Highlights:

  • Chaz explained that he is a former Rotarian, who is planning on re-joining his local club. He is also a Paul Harris Fellow.
  • YEA! program, being hosted by OCU at the OCUBIC
  • Participants can earn college credits via YEA!
  • Gave a brief history of the program.
  • Founded 14 years ago at the University of Rochester in New York.
  • There are approximately 100 hours of schooling in this program, which is on top of the students normal school hours.
  • Work on business plans, marketing plans, and pitch to real organizations. They launch their plans/products in May.
  • The program also helps the students realize that often no one individual can perform independently. Therefore, they learn how to create teams, and collaborate with vendors & other organizations,.
  • Teach them the “soft skills” of the business world.
  • One of their first programs done locally was with Ohio WillowWood
  • Host an number of events to educate the students, such as learning how develop an “elevator pitch.” The winner of that event would be the first participant to be awarded funds for their product.
  • Move on to developing & performing a five-minute pitch.
  • Next is to create & participate in a trade show. Students’ presentations evolve over the hours as they learn what grabs people’s attention and what doesn’t.
  • The final step is to transition to the OCUBIC to enter the “real world.”
  • YEA! Saunders National Semi-finals (2018): They sent one person locally (three from central Ohio) to this event.
  • Ohio Entrepreneur Expo was held on April 27-29 at the Expo Center. This was the first year for this event.
  • Columbus SBA Lender Tank, on 05/03/18 in Columbus, OH
  • Shared some of the success stories of their YEA! participants
  • They have partnered with the Boy Scouts program to certify that if a Scout participates in YEA!, they will automatically earn five merit badges.
  • Spoke of how one of their participants (Tristan, a seventh-grader with autism) actually pitched his idea of a specialized pizza cutter with the CEO of Donatos. She loved the idea, and Tristan has now filed for a patent for his design idea.
  • The YEA! Program survives on donations & volunteer labor
  • Next class starts October 2018!

Working with both the Department of Education and Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services on Governor Kasich’s “Start Talking!” Initiative, Hank helps connect schools, organizations, and leaders with resources that help them prevent drug misuse in their communities. Before moving to Ohio, Hank worked on community development for the Kentucky League of Cities and prior to his current role with the state he worked as a strategic planning consultant for non-profit organizations and small businesses. He earned his Master’s Degree in Public Administration for the Martin School of Public Policy and Administration, and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in. both Psychology and Sociology from the University of Kentucky.

Highlights:

  • Began by explaining the value of adults having discussions with youths regarding drugs & alcohol.
  • Pointed out that each of our interactions, big or small, can all have an impact in a youth’s life
  • Performed a demonstration at each table with salt, and dividing it into smaller & smaller sections to reflect how small a lethal dose of different drugs (fentanyl, carfentanil, etc.) are. These tiny amounts can be easily ingested accidentally or even absorbed through your skin.
  • Explained that the Governor’s Office has numerous free resources to help parents, schools, and any other community members to help them initiate these discussions.
  • Website: www.StartTalking.ohio.gov
  • “Children are our future.”
  • 8 out of 10 heroin addicts began with a legal prescription
  • Average drug addict age is 40 years old.
  • They are seeing a decrease (30% this year) in opiate drugs being prescribed.
  • Narcan will work as an antidote, but with these synthetic drugs the dose of Narcan needs to be greatly increased.
  • He explained that kids need to hear anti-drug talks from a trusted adult who has the proper information. All kids have talked with other kids, or via social media & the internet. Unfortunately the information in these forums is often incorrect information.
  • Pointed out that the “addictive brain” does not think logically, and they do not take the possibility of death into serious consideration. Instead of seeing the drugs as lethal, they see certain lethal batches as “the good stuff” and seek it out.
  • When asked if marijuana is a “gateway drug,” he discussed that it is really more that addictive behaviors/personalities are the “gateway” factors. Any drug or alcohol can become a “gateway.”
  • He stressed the importance of “supporting your education systems.” They are the ones who are on the front lines with our youth everyday, and can provide guidance to kids that have no personal support systems.
  • Spoke of how drug cartels are pushing these drugs out all over our nation. He explained that law enforcement detains a small portion, but much more gets through. He even mentioned how the cartels build these losses into their business models, and that they plan on losing that amount.
  • “Unfortunately there is no silver bullet.” He says it takes a lot of time & money to fight this everyday!
