Tara Stuart, left, and Erica Finley started Focused Training and Technical Services after losing their jobs six years ago.

Erica Finley and Tara Stuart didn’t necessarily have a Plan B when they lost their jobs six years ago. Today, the area women have turned a niche training business into a growing company by expanding into areas impacted by a retiring baby boomer population.

Focused Training and Technical Services develops people for any industry, but the business specializes in the power plant industry. In essence, Finley and Stuart provide training solutions to help employees become more knowledgeable about their jobs.
