It goes without saying that 2020 was a challenging year for small business owners. My staff did an amazing job adapting to the ever changing policies and procedures we implemented, allowing us to remain open throughout the pandemic, but it has been stressful to say the least. When we received word that we had been nominated for Best of Long Island 2021, it was a huge morale boost for the staff. It gave us something to look forward to, that perhaps 2021 would be our year. And it was! We were absolutely elated to win the title of Best Physical Therapist in 2021! What we weren’t expecting was how excited it would make our patients. The fact that so many of our current and former patients took the time to vote and help us claim the title of Best Physical Therapist on Long Island 2021 and 2022 shows that our patients value the services we provide to them. Our patients become like family to us, so this is their win too! Thanks Bethpage Best of LI!

As I am opening back up in Phase 2, I truly know how important winning Bethpage Best of Long Island Bridal Hair Stylist/Makeup Artist has been for me and my business. I just saw a new client today who told her friend she was getting her hair done with me. This friend said to her “how did you get an appointment with her so quickly?! She’s BOLI and voted Number 1!?” I couldn’t believe someone would speak so highly of me and noted my winnings with you guys! It truly solidified my passion for my business and how much I truly care about each and every client and bride I service. This made me want to work even harder to make my new client happy and she texted after she left how excited and happy she was with her new hair!! Having this title has truly meant the world to me and I am so grateful to have won and for the exposure it gets me. Thank you guys for doing this for us small businesses!

There’s a ton of awards right, there’s awards for everything now. But this is an award that is so cool for so many different reasons because people in our community vote for it. Who doesn’t want that? So, I would throw away all the other awards for this one because people who you live with, people who you respect, and people who are within your community think that you are good enough to win. So give yourselves a round of applause for that.
