A little about myself and who I am; my name is Brandon Nowak, and I am a twenty year old male college student. I am a quick learner and have experience from real estate, teaching physical education, and construction backgrounds. At this present time, I am studying at Monroe Community College, in the Construction Technology Program. I hold a GPA 0f 3.0, and am extremely self-motivated individual. College experience includes completion of course in Microsoft Office and AutoCad for Construction. High school experiences began with attending McQuaid Jesuit High School, while working. In the 2009-2010 school year, I graduated early from Gates Chili High-School. Working experience in sales began with 5LINX Enterprises. Working with, one of the nation’s Inc. 500 fastest growing multi-level marketing companies, brought a great understand of sales and multi-level marketing. I was employed by 5LINX, for three years, while attending McQuaid Jesuit High School. When I start college I began a new career, teaching high school physical education at Cornerstone Christian Academy. At the beginning of this year, I start working in construction. Where I learned and experienced many aspects of home renovations. Understanding in construction work includes; bathroom and kitchen remolding, painting, roofing, and more. At this moment I am in the real estate field, as a real estate agent. As an individual I am a great humored, athletic, and easy to get along with type of guy.

I don't have much time to respond right now. I know this is really short notice but would you like to meet some of us for breakfast tomorrow morning (Saturday 8/4) at 9 AM at Peppermints Family Restaurant on West Henrietta Road? Everyone else is also welcome to come.
We often meet informally on Saturday mornings to discuss the maker space. There is going to be at least four or five of us there including some other new folks who want to get involved. You can meet some of our team and we can answer your questions and tell you more about our plans.
One of the things we're working hard on right now is the financial section of our business plan. One of our problems is that we don't know how much space we're going to need. Also, successful maker spaces tend to go through huge growth spurts and frequently have to move into larger spaces. So we're trying to figure out how much it will cost us to rent and operate 5000, 10,000 and 20,000 square foot spaces and we don't have anyone with experience renting commercial real estate.
I was going to start contacting brokers next week to see if we can find someone who will help us with cost estimates (utilities, insurance, snow removal, trash pick, etc.), and help us find a suitable place to get started in. Is that something you would like to help us with? There's plenty more you can do if it isn't.

Hey tomorrow would be great. I do have experience in dealing with real estate. I do not specialize in commercial real estate, however I had to learn every aspect of real estate in order to become licensed. Therefore, I believe I could definitely benefit by bring knowledge of the real estate world. In addition, I also have contacts within the real estate community that deal with real estates law, insurances, mortgages, and other specialized fields.
