I love business owners! When I was growing up, they were my aspirational group. Now they 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!

Kathryn it was so good to meet you at the EOK workshop and have the honor of being invited to you birthday party where I met all of your long time friends. I had so much fun with you and I got to go to my very first roller derby! It was great thank you so much for taking me with you.  I will never forget it.  I'm glad I got to see you again at Aubrey's on Pub Night, you made my evening great.  Hope to see you again very soon.
