    The meetup was very empowering to be with a terrific group of smart successful women. It was great to hear more about Yelp and the best way to work with them instead of being part of the group that doesn't like or understand them. Abby's presentation was very informative and appreciated!
    I researched their company on Wikipedia and found an article that came out in the LA TIMES the day before the event .,_Inc.

    Yelp's tactics feel 'nefarious' and 'fishy,' even if they're legal,0,2211923.column?page=2&utm_content=buffer8c6e7&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=buffer&

      Hi Brenda! Thank you for sharing the links - great articles - very interesting. :) As with anything, It's up to the consumer to to do their research and ask other business owners who use Yelp before making an investment in Yelp's services.
