We know how important it is for small business owners to increase their business knowledge. At this year’s annual San Diego Entrepreneur Day, we held a contest where winners received prizes that would be helpful in growing their business. The first place winner of our San Diego Entrepreneur Day contest was Sarah Lynch, the founder of Beta Wolf Marketing. Sarah’s prize consisted of free admission to Ontrapalooza 2013, which is pegged as the ultimate event for business rock stars.
