You don’t need to light a fire under Connie Sparks. She provides her own, well, you know... The 43-year-old entrepreneur is the founder of the Wade Institute, a business consulting firm with clients as far away as Hawaii, New York, Ohio, and, of course, in her home state of California.
“I help small businesses define their businesses,” said Sparks. “I help them restructure their business and strategic plans. I also help them with business development and business financing. I’m pretty much hands-on with my clients.”
