I just want to say thank you for helping to create a huge opportunity for small business people like me. The Governor’s Conference was a truly amazing event that put me in touch with exactly who I want to work with… in a snap! I am in the process of becoming an active bidder for graphic design services for several different agencies, and I couldn’t be happier about it!

I learned so much yesterday from so many different people, I am feeling really lucky to have attended and demystified the process of working with government agencies. Another big plus: meeting with Lou Panetta really lit a fire under me, and I am ready to go after some of the many opportunities that SBDC had helped create.

Again, with much appreciation, I thank you for helping my company on its journey. If there is anything I can do to help you, professionally OR personally, please contact me. You have a big supporter in Bean Creek Studio!

Sincerely, Jennifer Isola
