I love business owners! When I was growing up, they were my aspirational group. Now that are my peer and reference group in so many ways. I want to hear their stories and learn from their successes and failures.
I would like introductions to business owners, both new and established and everything in between. I would also like opportunities to speak to groups on topics related to small business - whether it is about taxes, record keeping, workshops on QuickBooks, etc. I love to teach!
