This week, I had the opportunity to be featured in a piece by Model D Media. They're doing a series on Build Institute, a nonprofit supporting small businesses in Detroit. I talked about my experience working with them during my Kiva loan crowdfunding campaign. Accessing capital can be a big challenge for small businesses, so getting a loan with 0% interest and manageable monthly payments has been incredibly helpful in taking my business to the next level. I'm grateful to live in a city that offers great resources like TechTown, Build Institute, and BasBlue, and where customers genuinely want small businesses to succeed! The article also features some lovely photos of my studio and my creative process, captured by photographer Nick Hagen.
