All Pho­tos by Miki & Son­ja Photography

We love being part of this fan­tas­tic group of ven­dors who meets once a month to dis­cuss how to grow our busi­ness­es and be the best we can be in our indus­try. So hap­py to share what we learn togeth­er to ven­dor peers in our 5th annu­al spring edu­ca­tion­al event at Ter­ranea Resort. Here’s a high­light of this year’s brunch and pre­sen­ta­tion we held on May 8, 2018 at the award-win­ning and won­der­ful sea­side venue.
