Forbes Interview: Drawing on Personal Experience, Women in Small Business Have Big Ambition
In November 2016, I was very lucky to have the support of American Express behind myself and my Hops and Shop Events with their Small Business Saturday campaign. In addition, Amy Marino, the Vice President and Head of Small Business Saturday at American Express wrote a nice piece on women in small business for Forbes featuring myself!
Here's an excerpt:
Among those is Kevan Christine, owner/curator of Made in California, an eco-friendly, small-batch body and home goods brand based in San Diego. Kevan’s company was built with insights from her own journey to treat and maintain her health with natural products and remedies, and has since evolved into a bustling business.
Christine grows her own ingredients, sews her own products and is fervent about sharing the love with other businesses by sourcing her materials from local entrepreneurs. For Small Business Saturday, she’s organizing a pop-up event for San Diego small vendors across industries to bring together the best of what the city has to offer.
