Episode 2: Step Up to The Table… Supporting Local with the Founder of ClearPath Solutions, Helen Lao

BDO’s Dana Zukofsky joins us in today’s conversation as she interviews Helen Lao, Founder & President of ClearPath Solutions. Helen is known for her social media hashtag #helenonthemove and has been a huge advocate in the restaurant space. Everyone in this industry has been affected by the stay-at-home orders and Helen knew that if we sat idling by, some of our favorite places would be going under. Inspired by the ice bucket challenge to raise money, Helen created Step Up To The Table to help local restaurants stay afloat during these challenging times. Find out more about how you can support your local favs in this week’s episode!
