DU Alum is a Reigning Top Women Owned Business Finalist
The Grand Rapids Business Journal profiled Languages International, Inc. CEO Beverly Wall. Beverly speaks a business language many women entrepreneurs can understand.
“This business was a turnaround situation when I purchased it nine years ago,” Wall said. “I have defeated obstacles such as lawsuits, companies that went bankrupt, the Great Recession and having the bank call my loan. Learning how to scramble and prevail is a woman-business-owner skill that I have mastered!”
Wall, a former ATHENA Award winner, works with many businesses, including some of the largest in West Michigan.
Languages International is also certified by the U.S. Small Business Administration as a women-owned small business, meaning it is authorized to pursue federal contracts, as well.
