Miller, CEO/ Co-founder  Square One Intern  Tucson   State: AZ Email:  Website: SOCIAL MEDIA: Facebook | Instagram | Twitter | Jamain, CEO and Co-founder of Square One Intern, is a transplant from New Jersey. He’s been in Tucson for 6 years and came here via the US Air Force. As a former intelligence analyst for Combat Search and Rescue, Jamain learned that there were three essentials necessary for any mission to be successful. 1) A clear vision for the results desired, 2) a detailed plan to achieve those results, 3) and a well-run organization where everyone understands their roles and responsibilities for achieving those results via the plan. After interviewing over 200 organization heads and managers, Jamain condensed the most affective solutions into a system that organizations can use to clarify their vision, create their plan, and organize their team around that plan and vision. That’s the Revenue Focused Development System.  Because he has a passion for training youth, Jamain also runs a non-profit that trains at-risk youth in entrepreneurship to help them lift themselves out of the cycle of poverty they were born into. The same business organization system is employed with the youth and their ability to understand the system equals that of any business owner he’s worked with. The non-profit is called Circle One Tucson, signifying the 360 degrees of support each Tucson youth is given.  About Square One Intern Through networking with other entrepreneurs, Jamain met his Co-founder, Mariana Eubanks, three years ago and they stayed in contact. Both have a passion for business and youth and in February of 2019, Mariana approached Jamain with the idea of connecting students in the early stages of their education to businesses they’re interested in working with. This would provide them early real-world work experience in the field they’re studying so they can decide early on whether or not that particular career is for them. They also wanted the student to provide value to the organizations they’re working with. So, after a few months of testing various concepts, Square One Intern became a workforce development agency focused on connecting non-profits with Young Professional Implementers who can help them apply the Revenue Focused Development System to their organization and help them use it with maximum effectiveness.
