I stumbled upon the info regarding this program through the Massachusetts Department of Revenue site when I was trying to sort through some sales tax info. Massachusetts is historically big on taxes so my theory is if I'm paying for these programs I might as well check them out and see how they might serve me and my business.

(I was dreading that there wasn't a "meet and greet" portion of the workshop - all of a sudden it seemed so comical to be offering my services to the State of Massachusetts sitting there amongst 30 or so plumbers, transportation providers, laborers, IT Specialists, etc.) Who knows - maybe there's a gift bag out there that needs to be filled during one of the conventions housed in our brand new Convention Center and I can see Boston Baked Beads fitting in quite nicely. It's a long shot but what the heck...a girl's gotta dream!
