BBS Radar Launch

Greetings and welcome to the weekly blog for Beyond Business Solutions. My name is Tashana Thomas and I am a co-owner and CEO here at BBS. In short BBS is an eight year old, creative and strategic marketing firm specializing in graphic and web design. Now that I have gotten the formalities out of the way I want to set the stage for what you can expect from this blog that has been a year in the making. Since we are a marketing company, you can expect tips, tricks and the latest trends in the marketing and design world. However, and perhaps even more importantly you can also expect a very candid perspective on what it is like to be a small business owner. I will take you with me as I come here to share and vent in my weekly post. In short this arena will become my therapy and hopefully yours too. It is our sincere hope that you will be able to share and identify as we dive into the challenges and victories that we all face as business owners.
