Online Learning is Booming

South Carolina Business Review logo

Virtual learning, online courses, and webinars have been around for some time.  Our next guest has been a part of that industry, helping people create their own courses from their Upstate headquarters for almost 10 years now.

Mike Switzer interviews Paul Johnson, CEO and co-founder of Pathwright in Greenville, 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.
