What an exciting time this is for our family, business, and community!  If you are reading this, you probably helped us get here!  Over the years Breezy Quarters, starting as a hobby, has morphed into something bigger than my self, and my family, and now its even bigger than Abbeville!  A few months ago we entered a contest put on by SCORE, the nation’s largest network of volunteer, expert business mentors. The Championship awarded this title to 102 entrepreneurs for their dedication to the success of their small businesses, awarding them an all-expense-paid trip to a training and networking event, SCORE mentoring and publicity throughout the year, and a chance to win one of three $15,000 grand prizes, made possible with the support of Sam’s Club.

I got to fly ALLLLL the way across the country.  I learned from amazing business people including the uplifting Giselle Chapman who taught us to start in gratitude, and that marathon runners do not win by themselves, and it takes a team to get you there.  Thanks for being on my team! I also got to meet many many many other #bizchampions and these people are a-maz-ing.  They make products, they offer services, they give back to their communities in big and inspiring ways.  The best thing, was that everyone was so nice and open, and talked about their struggles, asked questions, gave advice, talked about family, pets, and passions.  These people are amazing, and that I get to stand among them and learn from them is such an honor.  

So what is next?  The second part of the contest is that we get to work really hard and grow our businesses (what entrepreneur doesn't love that!?) and gain media coverage.  Three of us will win $15,000.  So hang on to your hats!  We are going to be doing awesome things!  

Thanks to YOU this is possible!  Check out my fellow Champions by clicking our picture below.
