The Fall Into the Season With Year-End Planning Conference is designated for existing and start-up businesses.

As business owners, we understand the value of stewardship and community. We also understand the frustration of trying to get ready to close out the year. As a result of multiple inquiries from our clients, we launched the "Fall Into The Season" conference.

This year the fall conference will be featuring Melissa Valadez-Cummings Assistant City Manager, Jim Hood owner of Jim Hood Company, David Martin owner of Menchies in Cedar Hill, and Abdiel Ruiz President of Ruiz Financial Solutions.

Our goal is to educate and empower the business community. To collaborate in creating solutions and access to resources that will impact and create substantial growth in the business community.
