I am so super proud of one of my favorite Etsy shops (who happens to be one of my favorite friends) for being selected for the FedEX Small Business Grant contest!! Not only does she make amazing and truly unique jewelry, she’s also a gracious and kind person. Need proof? Check out her answer on the contest page:
Q: How would you use the FedEx SMB Grant money to make a significant impact on your business and/or on others?
A: My hope is that I can hire women who need to learn a trade and teach them to become skilled crafts-people — whether it be immigrants, mothers re-entering the workforce or women with special needs. I would like the FedEx Small Business Grant money to help pay these women to make jewelry under my supervision. I would also utilize the money to increase and improve my marketing, branding, web presence and to build an e-commerce site.
