I got a phone call, around noon, from an unknown phone number so immediately my head goes to "You've won a free cruise to the Bahamas!!!" and I got annoyed. I answered anyway. Turns out I DIDN'T win a free cruise, but Chris Cain, the executive director for Staunton Community Creative Fund, wanted to chat about me being a B Corp.
(See Staunton's website here: http://stauntoncreativecommunityfund.tumblr.com)
She proceeded to tell me all about who she is and what she does. Staunton is a non-profit company that assists small businesses (like myself). They are a micro lending organization dedicated to helping small business start and grow in the Shenandoah Valley area in Virginia. They are also a HUGE supporter of B Corporations. As we chatted, she mentioned she was writing a blog to be published today and she wanted to feature *yours truly*. Being a sole proprietor, I do not fit the 'typical' mold of a B Corporation. Big B Corps are Patagonia, Ben and Jerry's, New Belgium Brewing Company.
And then there is me....Megan James. But guess what? It doesn't take a multi-million dollar company to make an impact. It takes one person with dreams and drive. I may not be the CEO of Patagonia, but I am someone who has more drive than I ever knew I was capable of having.
OH. And here's the blog she wrote.
