Katrina says, “I motivate people to get up and achieve their goals, start that new business, go after that promotion. I’ve been there. By giving local authors and businesses a chance to promote themselves, this is one way to give people the chance to lift themselves up and by supporting great local non-profit organizations we can do even more to help our community.”
