Thank you to all of the WBEs that shared their 2021 personal and business goals.

Here are just a few of the WBE responses:

‘…Get Recertified, get a purchase order from Amazon and Ford Motor Company.’

‘Our goals for 2021 are to integrate a booking system into our website. We also want to create and implement a virtual employee training module, and finally, we want to expand our Mobile operations to Arizona, Texas, and Florida!’

‘My goal for 2021 is to triple both revenue and profit for the third year in a row.’

Our women are persistent, resilient, and driven, and we know you all will TRIUMPH!

WBE, and Owner of Amarra Naturals, Tiffany Cartwright, was recently invited to Target’s Black-Owned Business Fair
