Customer Highlight: Leah Yard Designs

Some may say that running your own business is similar to riding a roller coaster – a lot of ups and downs and full of surprises. One surprise for me is that Borboleta would connect me to so many wonderful, like-minded entrepreneurs all over the world. Some became my friends.
