A few words from AFEUSA Director of Communications,
Wayne Goshkarian

The Purpose of AFEUSA:


Education plays a key role for any entrepreneur. AFEUSA hopes to provide a multitude of educational options including monthly newsletters, one-on-one business coaching, motivational ideas and concepts, along with a library of noted books and audio tapes.


AFEUSA has negotiated a variety of both business and lifestyle benefits for it’s members. In additional, unlike working for an employer and having group benefits, AFEUSA provides a full selection of group-based supplement benefits.


The life of an entrepreneur can sometimes be a lonely one. AFEUSA plans to help you bridge that gap with its future Open Forum platform and “Shark Tank style” online presentations, and connections to investment capital for start-ups or business expansion. And be sure to visit us on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. With AFEUSA, its success by association!
