2007 Sisters in Business

 “Heart & Soul” Award

"I'm truly blessed to receive the Sisters In Business Network's "2007 Sister In Business Heart & Soul Award".  I was taught by my mother when I began my career in the work force at the age of 17 to always do the best job I can no matter what the job may be and that one statement  became a vital part of every aspect of all that I do.  I am still learning from the veteran entrepreneurs who have paved the way and Sisters In Business is an excellent avenue to get your business exposed, not only in Chattanooga, but via internet--across the world.  Thank you for this honor."  -- Virginia Yarbrough
