Andrea Arena is proud to mark the 20 year anniversary this year of the company she founded shortly after turning 24 years of age.  Andrea Arena is the President and CEO of 2 Places At 1 Time, Inc., the nation’s first provider of employer-subsidized, corporate concierge services.  Since founding the company, Andrea has expanded the Atlanta-based firm to locations throughout the US and Canada and has garnered the honor of being named to Inc. Magazine’s 500 fastest growing privately held companies in the US for two consecutive years. In addition, she has been selected as one of Catalyst Magazine’s Top 50 Entrepreneurs for 2002 and top five for 2000, a regional finalist for Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year competition and nominated as a 2002 “Georgia Tech Woman of Distinction”.  Andrea was also featured in the first issue of Catalyst Magazine as one the “5 Professionals Changing the Way We Do Business In Atlanta” and named “An Outstanding Georgia Citizen” by Secretary of State, Cathy Cox.

In addition to serving as the visionary and leader of 2 Places At 1 Time, Inc, Andrea recently served on the Advisory Board for Georgia Tech’s Business School, is an active member of the Entrepreneurs Organization’s Atlanta Chapter, the Atlanta Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO Atlanta) and the Rotary Club of Atlanta and has funded the Young Artists’ Scholarship for the Atlanta Lyric Theatre for three years while serving on their Board of Directors for 2 years.  She completed MIT and Inc. Magazine’s 3 year Birthing of Giants Program for advanced entrepreneurial learning, was the 2004 keynote speaker at the Georgia Tech Women’s Leadership Conference as well as a two-time Georgia Tech IMPACT speaker.  Andrea was featured on the jumbotron along with President Jimmy Carter during Ga. Tech orientation, and is a frequent speaker at Ga. Tech’s and Emory’s School of Entrepreneurship and Business School.

While working her way through school at Georgia Tech as a concierge at the Hyatt Regency, Andrea realized that busy executives and professionals would benefit most from their own concierge.  After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Management in 1989, Andrea knew she wanted to develop a company that made a positive impact on people’s everyday lives and she has been able to do so for millions of people through her company.  With her life savings of $5000 and a dream, she started 2 Places At 1 Time, running errands from her home.  Even though she no longer runs errands, Andrea is very much a part of the day – to – day operations of her company.

A caring, witty individual with a knack for helping others, Andrea continues to makes an impact on Atlanta and around the country.  Andrea currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia with her 17 month old daughter.

Ted Jenkin @ Your Smart Money Moves


My friends and family all think I’m a workaholic, but I say I’m just a guy that loves to help people do better in life.

My mother is still the only one that calls me by my real name Theodore Michael, my wife calls me Teddy, but for the rest of you it is just plain old Ted.

Ever since I was a little kid, I always loved money and being an entrepreneur. In fact, I still have cassette tapes of me talking to my grandmother at the age of five and my mother tells me all the time how much I played with money as a kid...
