SUCCESS STORIES

I joined the board of SmartSpider in 2019 after several years of being a member of this fine organization.  During my time as a member I participated in Ask a Pro panels and the mixers after the Ask a Pro, which were wonderful events.  I met so many people with passion and excitement about their businesses.   Of course all this was pre Covid-19, and now we need to be innovative to keep the juices flowing.  As a board member, this is one or our challenges, how do we continue the life line of passion and excitement, while still maintaining social distance and other Covid-19 protocol.  Please consider joining us on this journey, because without you there is a huge void.  
For more information, call any board member or turn to our inspiration, Jane Bradley, she will infect you, not with Coronavirus, but with passion and excitement that is needed for any successful and fulfilling business experience.
