David Hedges is a local entrepreneur with two businesses: Bookman Bright Consulting and Bookman Bright Retirement Planning and Capital Management. In simple terms, David manages money primarily for business owners and people “at a stage called almost-retirement or retirement,” in his words. A problem solver at heart, David helps people juggle the moving parts of retirement planning, risk management, and much more.
Since David’s business deals with personal and confidential material, an open, coworking space like the Hurt Hub might not seem conducive to his workplace needs, but our coworking space is still proved useful to David’s business. When David was looking for a space to hold an educational event on financial services he turned to the Hurt Hub, since his own office is just right across the street. After hosting one successful event (where the only glitch was that there were more attendees than anticipated), David made a note to himself that the Hurt Hub would be his go-to place for anymore public events.
After having hosted an event and becoming more known in the Hurt Hub community, when the Hurt Hub was looking for local business owners to offer advice to up-and-coming entrepreneurs, David volunteered. On account of helping out, David was entered into The Project Town Raffle. The raffle included a 6-month ‘Flex Space’ membership at the Hurt Hub, 8 hours of use for an Event Space rental, and up to 15 hours of Innovation Consulting services with Evan Rozantes and Beth Adams.
This raffle was offered by the Hurt Hub after receiving a grant from the Town of Davidson to specifically encourage local business owners and entrepreneurs to continue working for the good of the local community. David plans to use his new resources to host more educational events for the community, as well as expand his network, using the Hurt Hub’s points of contact.
Congratulations, David! We can’t wait to see what you will do!
