An event like Small Business Festival doesn’t come together without someone at the helm who knows all the players and can bring them all together. Momentum made the process so simple, knew exactly who to reach out to, and seamlessly made the first SBF Buffalo a huge success. What an AMAZING EXPERIENCE!

SANBORN, NY (June 18) – Momentum – The Business Growth Agency president Craig W.

We’ve all been there. Sitting through a chamber of commerce event featuring your competitor speaking on a topic that you’re the expert on. You justify your presence there are gathering “intelligence,” but realistically you just sit there seething, noting all the mistakes they’re making and plotting your revenge. Hopefully, you’re not in so deep that you’re making comments to anyone about how you’d do things differently. But you want to!
When’s the last time you went out of your way to show value to your chamber of commerce or business association?
Are you saying that after I’ve sent my check in to my chamber of commerce, that I should then be helping them on top of it?
