Small is BIG: Great Teams - Great Results
Small business is BIG in Garland, Texas and in celebration of National Small Business Week, the Garland Chamber of Commerce is honored to recognize a few outstanding local small businesses making a difference in our community.
According to the U.S. Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy, small businesses represent 99.7 percent of U.S. employer firms. We recognize that small businesses have long been the backbone of the local economy as well. The more than 9,000 small businesses in Garland are doing BIG things to impact success and sustainability for our community as a whole, and we think that's certainly worthy of celebration.

What motivates you to go to work each day?
I love what I do! I love that each of our delivery methods – speaking, training, coaching, and consulting – requires different skills and expertise, and each can positively impact individuals and organizations to grow them from “OK” to “Awesome.” Based on comments from clients, I know that I’m directly helping people to have great days on and off the job.
