Received the Rising Star Award through America’s Small Business Development Center

Today was a special day for me in my 7th year in business because I received the #RisingStarAward through America’s Small Business Development Center (SBDC).

In addition, today we celebrated SBDC day! Johnson City Mayor, Jenny Brock presented a recognition from Governor Bill Lee acknowledging the work of the #TSBDC

Special thanks to the folks that stayed after my Instagram 101 – Stories, Hashtags, Engagement for Business Owner workshop to see the ceremony, Aundrea Y. Wilcox, Mark Bays, Teresa for the set-up, and my talented friend/photographer, Laura Beth Davidson for capturing this picture!
