Once a month, I attend a small business owners’ breakfast in town. There is always a nice buffet breakfast, a good keynote speaker and time before and after the speaker to make some great business contacts both in and outside of my field. At the last meeting, while filling my coffee cup before the keynote speaker, I overheard a conversation about small business xo. Intrigued, I wrote down the company name and looked for the people I overheard talking after the keynote speaker. Fortunately I was able to catch one of them before he went out the door and was able to ask him about his experience. Not a technical person, I have relied for years on my current providers to lead me in the right direction. After the morning’s conversation, it sounds like I need to do some research on my own! I always assumed because I was using a large provider they were giving me the most up to datetechnology. Little did I know that there are other options available and maybe even at a lower cost.
