Our journey started first with an Ask Valor Masterminds group page on Facebook.  The purpose of the group is to bring business owners together from all industries to talk with each other about topics like Marketing, Online Marketing, SEO,  Social media, Videos, Business Plans, Accounting, Bookkeeping, Cybersecurity, Business Law and other topics they'd want to talk about.

With that our Ask Valor Masterminds podcast was born to bring on guest speakers or guru's on those topics to share their knowledge. We look forward to bringing guest speakers that will share some tips to help you with your business.
