During a 12-week entrepreneurial training program that I was facilitating, I had the pleasure of having
Mr. Jamar Washington as a guest speaker. The program participants and I thoroughly enjoyed having
him. He was very relatable and passionate about what he shared with us. He shared his story and
experience as an entrepreneur. Many of the participants left feeling very encouraged and also wanted
to connect with Mr. Washington so that he could coach them on their journey to entrepreneurship. For
anyone looking to have someone share their journey, the raw, uncut version that so many people are
unaware of, I’d definitely suggest having Jamar. He’s very gifted and great at what he does!

“I hosted J Haleem Washington of I Won’t Starve, LLC in July 2020. He facilitated a 90-minute Entrepreneur Development Workshop for aspiring and new entrepreneurs in Camden/Columbia, South Carolina. The free workshop was truly engaging for the attendees, and J led the discussion with inspiring ideas alongside very down-to-earth steps for these entrepreneurs to take, in order to bring their business ideas into reality or to the next level.”
