  Description: Wholly Education is dedicated to empowering people to realize their full potential by nourishing their body, mind and spirit.
  Profile: My name is Jody Brown and my business is called Wholly Education. The name comes from when I discovered that the three words heal, whole, and holy all come from the same root word, the old English word hal. That means that there was a time when those three concepts were so intertwined that we only needed one word to describe them all. I have wondered how the concepts became so dis-integrated, but I am encouraged by how with today’s holistic approach we are integrating them back together. So Wholly Education is a play on those words. My mission with Wholly Education is to empower people to realize their full potential by nourishing their body, mind, and spirit and I offer a wide range of services to accomplish this. I lead meditation classes as well as Health Coaching, Reiki, and Women’s Retreats called Journey to Inner Peace. Additionally, I help people with rites of passage as a non-denominational wedding officiant specializing in non-traditional and custom wedding ceremonies. As if that weren’t enough, I also teach piano using the Suzuki Method.
  Featured Products or Services: Wedding Officiant, Certified Health Coach, Master Reiki Practitioner, Meditation Instructor, Women’s Retreats Facilitator, Suzuki Piano Instructor.

Desired Markets: Local, Regional, State, National

  Description: TRM provides direction and leadership expertise for designers and owners in the environmental and construction industries, so they achieve maximum value for their investment. We are a New York State Certified Women owned company.
  Profile: TRM provides Trustworthy Representation and Management for your field work as your Construction Manager/Owner’s Authorized Representative (CM/OAR). We provide direction and leadership expertise for designers and owners in the environmental and construction industries, so they achieve maximum value for their investment. TRM is typically engaged by busy Owners/Designers looking for maximum value from their investment thru environmental compliance and monitoring of field activities. TRM provides: • Regulatory supportive and economically sound environmental solutions • Clear and concise summaries of field conditions associated with horizontal construction activities by a staff of engineers trained to ensure a quality product consistent with the scope of work with a long history of working with or as regulators and industry knowledge from implementing solutions. TRM has a proven process for serving as your eyes and ears through photographic documentation and detailed daily work summaries of construction activity allowing for rapid identification and resolution of unforeseen conditions in order to support budget and schedule control as well as project closeout. One repair, of one line in a road (storm, sewer, or water), can easily cost $25,000/day as compared to our fees which are less than 5% of that per day. Unlike other environmental and construction inspection firms, we have flexible staffing solutions and over 30 years of regulatory and construction experience that allows us to propose options for field related challenges. Our team establishes partnerships with the design team, field staff, and the effected community. We like to focus on the five keys: • culture of collaboration – a team focus on delivering value • participation in scheduling – planning to aid in work coordination • choose by advantage – support for decision making with multiple stakeholders • conditions of satisfaction – focus on shared project goals beyond cost and schedule and environmental compliance • target value design – focus on cost as a parameter in design to reduce design rework, and sustainable environmental alternatives
