Sounds of America’s Small Business - Harris Workstations

November 15, 2017

Harris WorkSystems was founded 18 years ago by Colleen Harris as a result of her work with Dr. Elizabeth Dowler Ph.D. Dr. Dowler had designed a group of ergonomic furniture accessories that were branded as "Situs" accessories. Ms. Harris then became head of Dr. Dowler's "furniture division" and as a result of her passion for ergonomics, Ms. Harris grew that division to such an extent that Dr. Dowler eventually sold her that division which in turn became Harris WorkSystems. Ms. Harris' customers soon began to ask her for other products and services and so began our growth toward where we are today.

Sounds of America’s Small Business - Tim Marshall

November 13, 2017

He's written 7 books in 2 years on personal growth, entrepreneurship, young professionals, sales, leadership, millennials, and breaking fear in relationships.

Before that, he built a company that was recognized by Inc. Magazine for 4 years in a row as one of the fastest growing companies in America by using the tactics he later included in his books, and most importantly, by bridging the gap of generational thinking and acting to stay ahead of the market crash trends way in advance in order to combine all into one business plan for immediate success.

Tim has taught, trained, and developed some of the most influential business professionals and athletes in the world. He created his company using only a desk and a telephone. Although Tim had $80,000 dollars in his business account when he founded his company, he didn't spend a single penny of it and built his company 100% organically from the ground up.
