USA Today Cover Story Highlights Jewelry Designer Patty Tobin

Today’s cover story on the front page of the Money section in USA Today highlights jewelry designer and life-long entrepreneur, Patty Tobin. The story, “Never Too Late to Start a Business: Older Americans Fan Entrepreneurial Spark,” comes on the heels of last week’s Index of Entrepreneurial Activity, a report released by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, which found that Americans between the ages of 55 and 64 represented the second-largest jump in entrepreneurial activity in the U.S. from 2008-2009. Echoing the study’s findings, Patty Tobin tells USA Today that her prior work experience as a marketing consultant and the co-owner of an environmental contracting firm in Upstate New York was an important success factor in her current jewelry venture. “I know how to deal with banks, how to read a lease, how to hire people and how to manage people,” says Tobin. Her positive, never-give-up attitude resonates with the many small business owners across the country who have chosen to ramp up a new business at an age when many slow down. “You can teach an old dog new tricks if they’re willing to learn, and I am,” says the designer.
