LIZ OTTS RIVERA
Founder of Florida Business Expo

I have been an entrepeneur since age 14. I have managed over 60 employees and sub-contractors on a national level. I have taken my previous company from start-up with $300 in capital to over 1 Million.

I am well versed in all aspects of business but most comfortable in sales, marketing, coaching and development. I love to brainstorm and have an enormous appetite for new ideas. I hold a degree in accounting and minored in contract law. My first loves are faith, family and friends.

"Those of us who are crazy enough to think we can change the world are the ones who do."
