Trevor Yager, founder of ad and public relations agency TrendyMinds, has been invited to President Obama's State of the Union address Jan. 27. The agency, which has experienced record growth, will be
highlighted for their achievements as a small business and their mission of giving back to the community. In 2009, the 15-year-old agency grew by more than 200%, doubled the number of employees,
gained 15 new accounts and underwent a renovation to accommodate the massive growth. In 2010, the agency will give away $150,000 of in-kind work to 12 nonprofits. The business is also a model of
achievement by minority groups and a National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce-certified gay-owned business.
