What Attendees have to say about Fusion!
"Attending the Flourish Fusion conference is exactly what my husband and I needed to really give attention to what our goals for our business were and what we wanted them to be. Having curated class topics to choose from, experts on hand, and getting to know other business owners was AMAZING! We left feeling encouraged, excited, but most of all focused on growing our business." - Tiffany Howard: CEO & Founder of Glamfetti glamfetti.co
