In 2019, my business grew exponentially. My Etsy shop hit 15,000 sales, my website doubled it's sales numbers from 2018, and we increased our wholesale presence tremendously. I won 1st runner up at the CT Entrepreneur Awards for Most Scalable Business. I taught a class to other fellow entrepreneurs on how to grow and profit their own Etsy shops. LICT hired an intern from WCSU in August and then turned it into a fully paying position in the company in December. I am also the co-founder of a women's networking group located in New Milford CT helping other women run businesses to achieve their successes. I founded the Pop Up Shops at Makery Coworking and we have been providing local artisans a unique place to showcase their goods on a monthly basis for the past 2 years.
