Small Business Spotlight of the Week: Zing! Laura | July 9th, 2010

Good day crowdSPRING blog readers, today I’m going to let you in on the next big thing sure to hit a conference near you and it’s called Zing!

You’re probably wondering what in the world…? But it’s great! Zing! is an interactive singing fitness show featuring sing-alongs to pop and Broadway hits, paired with dance moves sure to get the blood pumping. In addition to conferences, you’ll find Zing! at fitness and dance centers, offered as a group class targeting strength, endurance, flexibility and balance.

I connected with Pam Peterson, the creator of Zing! and the buyer who posted the Zing! project on the site looking for a logo design. Pam is a professional singer/actress and a personal fitness trainer so she’s highly qualified to pump you into shape at your next conference.

I got a chance to ask her a few questions and this what she has to share with you…

1.  How did you get things designed before crowdSPRING?

When I needed graphic designs in the past, I turned to colleagues of colleagues… with mixed results.

2.  Why in the world did you decide to use crowdSPRING?!

A fellow NAWBO Chicago member had posted a listserve request for a logo designer.  I liked the laid-back, conversational email response from CrowdSpring, and decided to check out your website.  Wow!  Let’s face it, the concept is phenomenal.  Where else could I name my price and attract a global talent pool from which to choose my design?

3.  What’s the single best small biz resource that you’ve found (magazine, website, blog, etc.)?

I’m a big fan of two Chicago women’s business organizations:  National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) and Women’s Business Development Center (WBDC).

4.  If your best friend told you they were going to start a business, what’s the ONE piece of advice you’d give them?

Clear your calendar for the next decade.

Need something designed? Name your price. Pick from 110+ entries. Love it or your money back.
