Qwner

Following Orders LLC
– Present (2 years 6 months)

As a new business owner, I am seeking out sources of information to help me grow my business in a wise and structured manner. In doing so, I am learning a tremendous amount from the people I have come into contact with. Finding the resources to build my company has lead me to find some extraordinary people and programs, from SCORE, WEB, MSBA, to EBV-F and V-WISE for military family members.
I am working with a US manufacturer for my bead designs and have created ten unique designs so far. Working with a reputable company has taught me many things about the jewelry industry, quality and integrity do count.
I am building this company with honor and integrity and I am amazed at the resources that are out there to help me do this.
