Cynthia Drasler:  I would use Rick Shepherd again in a minute. I believe that
because of that business plan, I won the Athena Powerlink Award from the
Phoenix Chamber of Commerce and Ariz State Univ School of Business. This
award gives me a panel of 8 experts in different areas of business to advise me
for 1 year for free to help me grow my small company into a large company.
The Athena Board members were very impressed with my business plan
during the interview process, and I believe gave me the edge to win.
