CRAVE symposium

I am super excited to be part of a round table at the upcoming CRAVE symposium. Organizers of events like this have been getting in touch becuase of my role in Grassroots Business Assocation and I am really enjoying getting to meet other small business owners as well as feeling that I am coming into my own as a business owner. I am realizing that I do have valuable advise for folks just starting off. Meeting other people and hearing how they succeed pushes me to do more, get more creative with Bluebottle. I think this event is going to be amazing in the skills and resources people will gain but also the contacts people will be able to meet.

Below are the details from their site:
