MESSAGE FROM THE FOUNDER AND CEO:
“Small to midsize businesses are the foundation of our US economy. The entrepreneurs are the visionaries that lead progress because they are willing to challenge the old, accepted and antiquated ways of doing things. Progress is constantly changing form. BABM is an independently owned and operated media company that refuses to be stunted by the traditional publishing model. Every marketing package includes both online and print exposure and in some cases radio. We strive to serve our hard working business leaders with up to date information and a healthy dose of inspiration.”
