Insight On Business the News Hour

Making Others Successful Meet Rachel Trainum

We love it when the story centers around business and personal growth. We love it even more when mentors, no matter their age, recognize that they can be the catalyst for the successful growth of others. Here you will meet Rachel Trainum from Tero International who, just a few years ago was a summer intern. Now, during a dramatic transition for the Tero Team due to COVID19 Rachel found herself supervising this year's crop of interns and understood that by setting them free to create they did an incredible job.  This is good stuff! 

Father & Son Talk Business at Tero International

It's been a long time since I've shared our studio with my friend Carlos Alvarez, one of the Tero Trainers, so it was great to reconnect. However, on top of that I got to meet his son Christopher Alvarez who is, this year, working as an intern at Tero International. It's a neat story about how actually getting into the world of business changes the attitude of young people while at the same time offering them real world experiences that last a lifetime. Meet Christopher and Carlos.
