Darn Good Yarn and Nicole Snow: Summer Catch-up!

July 29, 2014

Darn Good Yarn and Nicole have been up to some big things this summer…here’s a re-cap in case you missed anything!

*As a 2013 FedEx Small Business Grant Contest Winner, Nicole attended the US Chamber of Commerce’s America’s Small Business Summit.  Not only did she hear an inspiring speech by Colin Powell, but she was part of the teaching as well and  helped lead a breakout session on Small Business Insider Tips with the other winners from the FedEx Small Business Grant Contest, Danny Catullo of Catullo Prime Meats and Ari Hoffman of Gobie H2O.

*Nicole also attended the IRCE, the Internet Retailer Conference Exhibition, in Chicago and gave an insightful interview with Daniel Burstein of MarketingSherpa Media Center about starting a small e-commerce business.  She gives her best advice and tells how she grew Darn Good Yarn by 2900% on a totally self-funded budget.


 

*Another great interview with Nicole happened on The Shut Up Show with Berni Xiong.  Nicole chats with Berni and shares the story of Darn Good Yarn, how she finds courage in the face of fear, and how to build purpose and connection in your business.  If you haven’t watched yet, you are missing out!


 

*And just a teaser here…Nicole took a trip to Toronto to get the ball rolling on something huge!  I can’t wait to tell you what she is up to!
