Being an entrepreneur can be a lonely business and the network provides opportunities to share experiences, learn from others and network.

“The Network is a great idea for people in business to discuss with other small business owners common issues and allow us to see what other people are doing. The Network has assisted me personally to be excited about my business again and remind me of the reasons why we went in to business to begin with,” commented one network member, Cora Barnes of 3Q Catering.
