What People Are Saying

I attended the Sho Works Small Business Fair. I wanted to thank you for this event. Generally, I don't attend events like that. I can honestly say it was truly enlightening and invaluable. Many of the participants spoke very highly of you. Although we didn't meet, I am very interested in doing so. Please continue to have such events. They are very needed.
