Thank you to those who supported me in this exciting journey. For me, the competition ended as a semi-finalist. The finalists were a talented group, and I was happy to see that three of the four were women! The winner will be announced on May 13th and I will post an update here.

I learned so much about myself, my business and my goals by entering the competition. I am especially grateful to my husband, Mario for all that he did to support me.

Help me win $25,000 to grow my business and receive a two page article in Make Magazine!

Voting continues through May 5th!
