Winning the 1st annual Shannon Passero Women in Business grant became a tipping point for my business. It gave me the capital contribution I needed to further invest in crucial resources.
The grant enabled me to hire key people that I am able to rely on. As a team, we are able to pursue so much more than I was able to do on my own. It also gave me the opportunity to build up the infrastructure of my business. I was able to invest in 2 crucial pieces of equipment as well as hire experts to help with branding and marketing to take my business to the next level. And last, but most importantly, the grant has given me the confidence to pursue my goals and to reach higher than I thought possible.
All of these things contribute to our sales being 74% higher than last year!
