LuAnn Nigara and Shannon Lopez’s Ah-Ha Moments

“It’s so incredibly important. We’re really lucky that we have someone like you that really understands it and has spent the last two and a half years pivoting her business in order to become an expert at this.” – LuAnn Nigara

“This program is as financially impactful, if not more, than the PPP for most business owners. Whatever amount of money you got from the PPP, there’s a good chance that you will get that much, if not more, for this program.” – Shannon Lopez
