WHAT OUR MEMBERS ARE DOING

Candace Monaghan, the woman behind Beaver Dam Farm Sunflowers in Buchanan and the annual sunflower festival comments about The Gauntlet experience, "I knew it would be intense, but I had no idea it would be as intense as what it was. There is homework every week. You get out of it what you put into it." From The Roanoker, "The most beneficial piece of advice she gleaned from her time in the program was to network and connect with as many business professionals and community members as possible."
