Lisa Kipps-Brown started Glerin Business Resources in 1996 in Jacksonville, Florida. She was a CPA who was bored with accounting, and intrigued with the idea of being able to use her business experience in a more creative way. Web development was the perfect fit and she ditched accounting to concentrate on helping entrepreneurs use the web to create their dream business. Yay! So much more fun.
Use our 21+ years in business to help you dominate your niche, your way, and enjoy doing it.
Let us introduce ourselves:
