It’s March, and many of us are reflecting about one year ago with all its trials and tribulations. And your business? You made it and overcame a lot this past year. You’re the author of your business’s story.
Now it’s time for your business to continue shining. One huge way to write a new chapter in your business’s story is by going for a $50,000 grant by FedEx. Winning can definitely help your business continue to grow strong. But you have to enter, and the March 9 deadline is upon us.
“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”
