Divorce Shopping Made Easier

South Carolina Business Review logo

What happens when a divorce lawyer, financial planner, and real estate broker walk into a room? They form a new business that specializes in one-stop shopping for people going through divorce or separation.  That’s what happened recently to our next guest.

Mike Switzer interviews Jamie Minster with Charleston Divorce Services in Charleston, SC.

After almost 20 years, Mike Switzer retired from Wells Fargo Securities in 2001 as Senior Vice President/Investment Officer and Certified Portfolio Manager. In 1999, he and his wife, Maggie, purchased and operated for eight years the Baskin Robbins ice cream store on Forest Drive in Columbia. They grew the store from a bottom-tier operation in the Baskin Robbins franchise system to one in the top 5% nationwide within three years, tripling sales along the way. While operating the ice cream store, Mike and Maggie received patents for a portable ice cream sink and fold-down sneezeguard they invented and in 2002 started Magnolia Carts, an ice cream cart manufacturing company, which they sold in 2013.
