Happy International Women’s day everyone! As a female small business owner, I wanted to reach out to all of you and say, thank you so much for supporting my small business and giving me the opportunity to live out my dreams.
While I was growing up I never really had an example of a solely woman owned and operated business and I am so proud to say that the women before me have carved a path where I can look around and see so many of my favorite small businesses that are not defined by our gender but by the quality of our products.
I of course have to give credit to my mother and grandparents as well as teachers and other loved ones for allowing me to become whoever I wanted to be and to try things that they never had the opportunity to try. The strong women that came before me educated, encouraged, and empowered me to reach as high as I could and I will not stop here.
My goal is to encourage the next generation to lift each other up, work together, and realize that if one of us succeeds, we all succeed. Helping each other does not create competition, it creates opportunity. Opportunity for social and economic growth, opportunity to create a society of love and strength, and opportunity for all individuals to experience and embrace equality without fear.
Thank you again for all of your support.
“Here’s to strong women.
May we know them.
May we be them.
May we raise them.”
