Regina Miller says she regularly receives dozens of emails from people seeking business advice.

Often, that translates into spending hours helping others build or get started with a business.

Those experiences planted a seed for Miller’s second business, R. Miller Consulting, which was launched recently.

She says she is emphasizing leadership and entrepreneurship training with her consulting practice.

“It’s taking off,” says Miller, who also owns Princeton Children’s Center at 3590 N. Woodlawn.

Miller says she encounters people all the time who have good ideas but need some guidance to steer them in the right direction or give them the confidence to move forward with a business plan.

She says her goal is to help foster the entrepreneurial spirit in Wichita, grow businesses and give back to the community.

Miller is the sole proprietor in the consulting business, but the hope is to add consultants and staff down the line.

Miller, a participant in the Wichita Business Journal’s Career Women program and 2017 Leaders in Diversity honoree, is stepping back from the day-to-day operations at Princeton Children’s Center but isn’t leaving the organization entirely.

“Princeton is the catalyst for my success,” she says.

Miller’s daughter, Helen Lyon, has assumed the director’s role at that organization.

The children’s center continues to grow, Miller says. She is in the early stages of securing a site for a second location.

Princeton is the ninth-largest child care center in the Wichita area based on local enrollment.
