"The first several months of the pandemic were challenging for ourselves and our clients," says Mark Schmidt, Founder. "However, as we all learned how to navigate and push through the difficulties, the work ramped up. In addition to existing client work picking back up, we brought many new clients on board. Expanding our team over these last several months has allowed BizStream to take on a lot of exciting new projects. I think we are all just really happy that it feels like we are back to the fun, work hard, play hard, BizStream we used to be."
