In the spirit of leaving no stone unturned, I’ve entered Elemental Design/Build in a vote-online small business contest and could really use your help with the online voting. If I’m selected as one of the 15 winners, my “wish” for $5,000 toward a contractor’s license and new tools would be granted! How cool would that be!
Did you know women-owned businesses make up just 28% of Oregon’s businesses? I don’t think that’s because we’re 28% as smart, or 28% as capable. I think this has a lot to do with access to capital, and many womens’ relative discomfort with demanding their share of the financial pie. I’d really like to make Elemental a shining example of a woman-owned business for other women to be inspired by. And I’d also love to see a green, progressive business highlighted as one of the 15 winners in this contest.
