GLAAACC MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

GLAAACC members are known for being movers and shakers in t he business community, and Colette Moore, Owner and Strategic Partner of Pride Staff L.A./Culver City is no exception.  Since joining GLAAACC in 2012, she has been an active member and supporter of GLAAACC and its programs.  “I’ve benefited from my GLAAACC membership in so many ways, particularly the access to opportunities and networking that I wouldn’t have had otherwise.”

Moore’s elevated visibility through GLAAACC led to PrideStaff L.A. /Culver City to be ranked in Los Angeles Business Journal’s 2014 list of 100 Top Minority-Owned Businesses. The list recognizes minority-owned Los Angeles County-based companies and is ranked by 2013 revenue. The Los Angeles Business Journal specifically sought out GLAAACC members to qualify for this annual ranking.

Also in 2014, Inavero, an independent survey company, recognized PrideStaff as the Best of Staffing provider.  This recognition is reserved for only the top 2% of staffing firms in North America.

In June 2015, PrideStaff L.A./Culver City will receive the Small Business of the Year Award from the Leadership of the California Legislature.  During California Small Business Day, each legislative district is invited to honor a small business owner that is deemed the Small Business of the Year from that district. Assembly Member Sebastian Ridley-Thomas, representing the 54th Assembly District, hand-picked PrideStaff L.A./Culver City for this honor.

Moore has words of wisdom for small business owners just starting out, “Follow the money.  Cash flow is not the same as revenue,” Moore states. “Know where your money is going at all times.  Focus on sales, consistency and follow-up.”
