Jerry R. Mitchell, President, Jerry R. Mitchell and Associates, Naperville, IL writes on LinkedIn:
“I have known Margo for many years. We first met when she presented her company’s’ business plan to an organization that I was president of. She presented herself in a very professional and poised manner. She was able to explain her business plan in a very articulate way and could answer all the constructive criticisms to the panel’s satisfaction. We have remained in contact over the years and I am always impressed by her ability to move into new areas with determination and passion. I have never ever saw her fail at anything she put her mind to.”
