14th Annual LATINA Style Business Series Conference in Los Angeles- April 12, 2012 – Hilton Los Angeles/Universal City:
I am grateful for the opportunity afforded to me by LBA. I found the networking and resources made available by the event to be priceless. As an aspiring entrepreneur, I felt very lost about where to go for help. I walked out of the event with important new contacts, and invaluable sources of mentorship including LBA and T.E.A.M. It is amazing to see Latinos and Latinas helping one another in the business arena, which often can seem so lonely. I feel empowered and inspired to pursue my entrepreneurship dreams. I look forward to seeing you and your team soon.”
