As a small business owner, nothing means more to me when someone refers others to me, and while my couples' kind words warm my heart each and every day, when a colleague or co-worker refers someone to me, because they can vouch for the work I do, it is wholeheartedly appreciated. I'm a part of this not-so-little movement called the Rising Tide Society (you can read more about that here) but one of their founding principles is that a rising tide floats all boats, and that the more we value community over competition, the more likely we are to succeed as creative entrepreneurs.

You won't find better in the industry than these experts in their crafts.
