Yesterday, Brother and StartupNation announced the winners of their 2012 Small Business Grant Program, a $25,000 award to be divided evenly among five small businesses who “submit the most original and creative business plan.”
And Sugared Beauty is one of the recipients!
I’m thrilled and honored to have been chosen among the five businesses, and believe you me, I’m excited to put the money to good use! I plan to invest in a new website complete with a bright, shiny (and secure!) shopping cart and upgrade my product packaging. These are two big-ticket items that I’ve wanted to do for a long time, and I’m so grateful to be able to do them now.
In the meantime, please continue to shop for your favorite Sugared Beauty goodies at my Etsy shop . I’ll be sure to keep it active until every last bit of code is written and live on the new site. And you know you can always find me here!
Many (many!) thanks to Brother and StartupNation for this generous program. Look forward to some exciting upgrades to Sugared Beauty in the next few months!
