We had a full house today at the Small Business Roundtable. Some of the participants had to leave early but we're glad we were able to snap a photo of some of our attendees after networking.
Best part: Wonderful and inspiring topic about social marketing and how to incorporate it with your business strategy.
Worst part: It had to end! 😣 The conversations about ideas on how to expand cause related programs was one of our favorites.
It's truly rewarding to run a business that positively impacts the community.
We had a great time at Fuego Restaurant at the Hotel Maya!! THANK YOU for your support and hospitality! Thank you to everyone who attended!
