Who is excited about the MBA Orlando Pride in Business gala coming up on April 25? It’s hosted by WFTV news anchor Jorge Estevez, who is someone I’ve wanted to meet for a long time now! Many wonderful businesses and businesspeople have been nominated for awards, including Hotspots!

Hotspots was nominated for two awards: Best Small Business and the publisher Peter Clark was nominated for Businessman of the Year. Whoever wins, one thing is for certain: the winners definitely make Central Florida a better place by devoting their work to the community here. Hmm…I hope I get to attend! I guess I’ll find out that answer very soon! Lots of love to you all!
