Small beginnings make a large impact

This past weekend was our 1st annual Small Business Summit, A toolbox to success. We were fortunate to have wonderful sponsors such as Bonefish Grill Novi, Target, and Aubrey's Pizza. Our speaker list gave a fresh perspective on topics such as the business of being organized, managing public relations, and igniting the passion into your company. Our keynote speakers included Gail Perry-Mason, Best-selling author and Bob Fish, CEO and Co-founder of Biggby Coffee.
It was a dynamic experience for those interested in taking their pursuits to the next level. I want to give a special thanks to Zak Walsh of Tanner Friedman Communications, Lori Robinson of BLAC Magazine, Lisa Lagrou of Oakland County Moms and Sheila Hawkins of Third Eye Group for being amazing speakers, panelists and content contributors. Beginning a business is no easy feat but this weekend left many inspired to take on new tactics to acquire success. When I began as an entrepreneur I realized that there should be a format that allows for knowledge to be shared, inspiration to be increased and connections to be made. Pictures will be forthcoming later this week.
What dreams do you have? What is standing in your way. Let's work together as a community and assist others in reaching their goals and creating new alliances so that our dreams take flight.
