How One Woman Broke Into the Auto-Supply Industry
Stores will go through the training in order to better understand how women view car repairs and how to help educate women on cars. The company will be offering classes to teach customers basic car repair and maintenance, she says.
"We're very focused on family, women, children and educating them on their vehicles," Moran says.
Moran, who just remarried in March, has five teenagers.
October is National Women's in Small Business Month. As the small business community celebrates, a conversation with how Moran made her mark follows:Did you always know you would work with your dad? Moran: I had worked for him on and off when I was younger and just little projects. When I was in college, I started working for him as a summer job and I really found that I loved business. I was going to art school at the time. I started with him as his receptionist and I moved very quickly to bookkeeping and moved up to office manager. It was a transmission business. He made me learn all the different parts of a transmission. It was so boring and I said I'm not going to use this. He said you need to know what these parts mean. So I did. As I grew up in the transmission industry, I really enjoyed working in the environment.
