Small Business Spotlight of the Week: Fearless Women Entrepreneur Network Laura | September 12th, 2010
Fearless Women Entrepreneur Network (or FWEN for short) posted a logo project on crowdSPRING and they need our community’s help. FWEN is a network started in San Francisco, CA to help teach, train, and coach women to become better entrepreneurs. Along with awesome classes and workshop events, FWEN even offers scholarships! So if you’re in the San Francisco area check them out! Friend them on Facebook, and while you’re at it friend us too!
I got a chance to talk with Laura Guy, the co-founder and Director of Organization and Execution at FWEN, and here’s what she has to share with all of you!
1. How did you get things designed before crowdSPRING?
Before Crowdspring, we didn’t have a reliable, robust resource for designers, which is why dragged our feet on branding. There’s nothing like being able to review designs in advance of choosing a designer to work with to ensure that we will be happy with the results.
2. Why in the world did you decide to use crowdSPRING?!
We decided to use CrowdSpring based on a friend’s recommendation. She had a great experience on the site so it was an easy decision.
3. What’s the single best small biz resource that you’ve found (magazine, website, blog, etc.)?
The single best small resource we have found is social media. The price (free!) is unbeatable and it’s a great way to stay in touch with our network regarind events and services, in addition to allowing our organization to stay up-to-date with what’s happening in their world.
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?
The one piece of advice I’d give to a friend looking to start a business is “Go for it!” There’s nothing like entrepreneurship to create power possibilites and realities in one’s own life.
