My name is Janel Tate, DBA, MBA

Business Consultant & Marketing Strategist at your service

My motto is that life should be lived BIG, with passion and excitement. My desire to live an AWESOME life has led me to many life-changing experiences and adventures. This desire for a life of adventure and to pave my own path resulted in my leaving home at 19 to join the United States Navy. After serving almost 10 years, I separated from the Navy with an honorable discharge to attend graduate school on a full-time basis. I have completed my bachelors with a degree in Criminal Justice, a Masters of Business Administration specializing in Human Resources Management and a Doctorate of Business Administration specializing in marketing. I am a Contracting Officer for the United States Federal Government. It is my dream job. It has allowed me to transfer my patriotic love for my country from military service to federal service all while utilizing my business skillsets and very expensive education. It also has allowed for much independence and adventure for my gypsy soul. While being employed with the federal government, I have worked in Chicago, IL, Washington, DC, Bethesda, MD, and Bismarck, ND. More recently, I have been able to move to my hometown in Ohio, and I am employed as a Contracting Officer/Business Adviser assisting U.S. military veterans by developing business relationships with large and small businesses. I love my job because it allows me to do what I am passionate about doing which is business development and providing services to veterans.

Last little thing about me…while I have assisted a vast number of clients in their efforts to start their own business, I especially love helping small churches fulfill their biblical mandate of evangelism by being the hands and feet of Christ.
