Thanks to Leah Dossey of Blue Leaf Creative for the awesome new Career Girls logo and banner!
Leah and I met on Twitter and somehow hit it off right away (yes, you can hit it off with someone through 140 character messages). I called her on the phone and knew right away that I wanted her to put my vision for Career Girls into action. I was surprised how easy the process of designing and choosing a logo was. I expected to wait several weeks and go through at least 10 concepts before I picked one out, but that was definitely not the case: we tweaked the first design she sent me and 3 days later we were done.
Leah also introduced me to an awesome organization called Count Me In. This organization provides resources, community and business education for women entrepreneurs seeking to grow micro businesses to million dollar enterprises.
This year, Count Me In is sponsoring a really cool contest called “Make Mine a Million $ Business” and, not surprisingly, Leah is working to put a fabulous team of women together to join the “race.” Leah explained this challenge to me as “’The Bachelor’ meets ‘The Apprentice.’” Details below:
This is the year to grow your business, make money, secure your family and your future. Contrary to the tough economic news, you can visualize, create and grow a more sustainable and successful business. Join thousands of women entrepreneurs growing their enterprises, creating jobs and taking charge in the Make Mine a Million $ Business RACE.
