"With a skeptical attitude about attending the 2010 BizFair, I can now honestly say how incredibly invaluable the event was. You will learn dozens of fully implementable tips, ideas, and most importantly, the pitfalls to avoid (all in one afternoon!) from local business owners/entrepreneurs that have experienced it all first hand. Thank you to ALL who donated their time to help us new business owners. Wow, what a phenomenal day!!!"
