In September of 2008, I started my business by accident (yes thank you Michele DeKinder-Smith for helping me discover my inner Accidental Jane).
Five years later, thanks to many of you, we have beaten the odds that say that 97% of women owned business fail within the first year. We have many of you to thank for helping us not only sustain us when we started out small, but especially since I took the business full time in 2012 and surpassed our goals for the year. I am now a Go Jane Go trying to now focus my priorities and trying to find the customers that match my values and enjoy the fun and commitment that marketing can bring to the table.
We are not alone in our quest. According to a study done by American Express Open in March of 2012, Nationally, the number of women-owned firms increased by 54% over the past 15 years. The states with the fastest growth in the number of womenowned firms during that period are: Georgia (95%), Nevada (92%), North Carolina (83%), Mississippi (75%) and Texas (75%).
Marketing to Go Has set our intentions for a healthy, happy, prosperous New Year.
