"Starting and running a small business on your own gets lonely, confusing, and difficult at times. Also, not everyone is fortunate enough to start a business with a $100,000 loan. I wanted to create a safe and affordable community where small business owners can help one another, never feel like any question is a silly question, and can feel that they are not alone! We are in this together and I am here to help you get to the top. As long as you have a phone, internet, and a social media account in 2021, you can be a millionaire without even leaving your house."- Liv Portio
