Please consider attending the dinner for the Tim Piazza Memorial Foundation Golf Outing.  Tim was my neighbor for 20 years and my son’s best friend since they wore diapers.  He is also the boy who was killed in the fraternity hazing incident at Penn State in February.  A foundation has been created to continue his legacy and provide prosthetics to children who cannot afford them.  The event is being held at Fiddler’s Elbow on August 15 and it would be great to have support from my EO brothers and sisters.  For more information or to register please go to   ……Lawrence Prager

Member News – David Dunigan – New member to EONJ

My name is David Dunigan I am new to EO and am just starting the process of finding a forum. I own Modern Store Equipment in Florence NJ. We manufacture and distribute store fixtures and refrigeration, primarily to the liquor store industry. Basically we provide all the equipment you need to open a liquor store. Building projects all across the country.

My father Thomas Dunigan founded Modern in 1958. Growing up the office was the front of our house. My mother also worked for Modern paying all the bills. Dinner conversation at our house was very often about the business. I started working there when I was 16 years old and have never worked anywhere else. I got a college degree at night while working full time. I took over the company 7 years ago when my father became ill and shortly latter passed away.

The last 7 years have seen a lot of changes at our company. We moved from 7,000 SF facility to a 24,000 SF. Converted our woodshop to all high tech computerized manufacturing equipment. Our sales have grown 1,000 % and our team has grown from 15 people to 40.

Running our now much larger company and trying maintain our small company culture while instituting needed systems has been one my biggest challenges. This is my main reason for joining EO to learn how my fellow entrepreneurs have dealt with some of these issues I am dealing with. I believe I picked up a nugget or two in my lifetime in small business and look forward to being able to give back.

My wife of 23 years Lisa is active in the company, paying all of our bills and keeping us out of trouble with the taxman. We have no children. Outside of the office I am active in Porsche club racing.

Member News – Mohit Jain – new member to EONJ

I recently joined EO. I was really impressed by the EO test drive and the Mock forum.

I founded my business Math Genie in 2008. We are an after school enrichment program specializing in Mental Math & Reading/Writing.

The idea for the business came when I was visiting India and I saw a small child to do complex Mental Math. We started with a single location with 3 students. It has now grown to  4 locations with over 1000 students who have gone through our program. Our long term plan is to grow organically and possibly go Nationwide at the appropriate time.

Prior to starting Math Genie I had many jobs and businesses. I have worked as a day trader on the stock market. I have worked for a Diamond trading company and sold diamonds in Asia and Europe. I have worked as an IT consultant for Goldman Sachs and flipped distressed houses.

I grew up in India and got a degree in Accounting. I have lived in Mumbai, Antwerp, Hong Kong, Singapore and Bangkok before coming to the US.

My wife Naina is the Co-Founder of Math Genie. Both of us are passionate about Children’s learning. She manages the training and curriculum while I manage the marketing and business development. Together we love to travel and try to visit a new destination every year. We live in East Brunswick, NJ

Welcome to our new EONJ Members…

My name is Curt Bashford and I joined EO in November of 2014 after the EO test-drive.  My company (General Devices) was formed in 1979 and I have been with the company since 1986 – my senior year of as an undergraduate in electrical engineering at NJIT.   I later received my MS in bio-medical engineering also at NJIT.  I became an owner and took over as President/CEO in 2011.  The company founder retired, so you could say that I (and my two partners) were his exit strategy……click here to read more…

Build Your Online Platform Using Two “Secret” Words By Mike Michalowicz

What are the two words that will always, always generate a prospect’s interest? No, they’re not “free delivery,” or “limited time,” or “satisfaction guaranteed.” The “secret” words do not convey a promise, or a deal, or a benefit. The words are not specific to any industry, or niche, or type of business. I hesitate to call these words a “secret” because they are so obvious: two words that will grab a prospect’s attention every time is… here to read more.
