It is so encouraging to witness, serve and support individuals who come to our country legally, abide by our laws and make a contribution for our collective benefit.
One of my SCORE clients fits that bill to a T!
Here, we have an example of a self-starting woman from Canada, the wife of a veteran and mother of a young boy. She had the guts to quit her full-time career in micro-biology to launch her own business making handmade jewelry out of her home. And, upon doing so, has gained the attention of Vogue, Seventeen, Glamour and Redbook magazines, as well as celebrity endorsements. She now has employees and is looking to continue her expansion.
Instead of my recounting her story, you can learn more by clicking here. Doing so will take you to the page of the SCORE contest “What Makes Your Business Unique.” And, while there, please consider casting a vote for her to win “up to” $25k to support the continued expansion of her business and the creation of more jobs for the citizens of our country!
Interestingly enough, the contest allows the casting of up to 10 votes per hour (from each unique device) until February 20!
So, please take a moment to review her inspiring story and cast your 10 votes (only takes a few seconds).
Also know, you too can be an entrepreneur: in business for yourself and the creator of jobs!
If you have an idea for a service or product that will solve a problem, make life easier, more enjoyable or otherwise improve the human condition, please don’t cast it off as whimsical. Develop your idea, seek counsel from someone who has gone before you and see if you can give it a go.
Seeking a mentor (at SCORE) for example, is an extremely simple (and 100% free / no-cost) process.
To do so, visit SCORE.org, click on “Find A Mentor” provide your zip-code and fill out the form to share a few details about you. From there you will promptly be connected to a local SCORE chapter as the first step to receiving the guidance you seek.
In the words of my client…
There’s nothing like the freedom and possibilities of entrepreneurship!
