Alisa Kraemer O’Banion is the owner of Texas Microfiber, (http://www.texasmicrofiber.com) a manufacture of textiles for medical, automotive and janitorial use. Alisa launched a new online store hoping it would increase her sales, and wasn’t quite sure which direction she should take her marketing efforts. She came to us, and we paired her with advisor Steven Spector from Xerox, as part of an effort to develop a strategy to ramp up her sales and refine her branding. Those strategies have now put Texas Microfiber on the verge of exponential growth. Steven’s support also helped Alisa make better business decisions. Another successful match for the BusinessAdvising.org team!

We couldn't agree more! An inclusive economy looks like a living wage for all workers. An inclusive economy looks like a boardroom and management team with the same demographics as the company’s factory floor.
