[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”Meet Barbara Solivais” use_theme_fonts=”yes” el_class=”ev_head”][vc_column_text]Barbara “Barb” Solivais is a successful restaurant and bar owner. She started her career as an entrepreneur with her first restaurant/bar in 2008. As we all know this was possibly one of the worst times in history to start up a new business. After surviving the downturn of the economy for several years she knew she could survive anything and opened Lit’l Bit Bar and Grill in 2013.

Barb has won several awards while running her business and building “Community”. The awards include the:

  • Jack Meakins award
  • Michele Jones Award
  • Certificate of excellence from the Restaurant Guru
  • Alignable Evans Person of the Year
  • Envision Award for most contributions by a local business
  • Best of Greeley Awards for Best Bar, Best Happy Hour, Best Burger, Best Bartender, Best Wings, and Best Sports Bar.

Barb is going to talk to Northern Colorado Women in Business all about something we are all aware of, but we really don’t want to talk about. She is going to share a secret with you that will help you survive with your business. No matter what kind of business you have you can use this strategy to create a better business
