Hi, I’m Joshua Chernikoff. I’m an entrepreneur and business owner who has founded and sold two education businesses in the past. I currently spend my time supporting our nation’s post-pandemic educational comeback through the founding of Flex Tutors and the coaching of multiple companies in the education space. I’ve experienced the positive effects of breakage myself, and I’m looking forward to learning from others who’ve grown from their most challenging moments as well.
