About Dexter

Joined US Army at age 17 (Infantry). After seventeen years of honorable service as an Enlisted Soldier and Noncommissioned Officer, I attained the rank of Master Sergeant (E-8). Shortly thereafter, I accepted a direct-appointment to the rank of Second Lieutenant, and I, then, began my last thirteen years of honorable service as a Commissioned Officer!
My passions are many, and I am learning to maintain focus on critical tasks, without others taking a hit. Of recent, I would estimate 90-95% of my time, effort, money has gone into my business. In fact, that is why I am reaching out....My current position is as follows:

*Graduated 2016 (Syracuse)
*Business Dormant from 2016 until post-Covid19 SBA Grant(s)
*Application and Approval of State and Federal Grants (SBA)
*Require Mentor to learn possible ways to launch business (BLUF)
