Last October I was conversing with my mother in regards of my new idea at the time, an interactive business online page. She in return gave me the idea of starting my on blog. A few days later I did research and created !Tinico Talks! Six months later I still have the same passion and enthusiasm for the blog as I did when it began. Who knows what is in store for the next six months or years even but I know as long as I continue to give my all to this the sky is the limit. Many blessings to all of you for supporting and I look forward to being apart of your future business success!!!
