Having been a faithful reader and sometimes contributor to orchid for
years, my family finds itself in need of some assistance.
Scenerio: I’m a public school art teacher and hobbyist jewelry
maker/designer/2D artist working towards a show. Result: very small
nest egg. Much like cavier, perhaps. Single egg, really
However, my wife, who is also an artist, has worked closely with a
successful female artist who’s one of a kind work is now outselling
her bread ‘n’ butter work. This artist wants to sell her steady income
business to my wife to free up her valuable time. An outstanding
opportunity, but finances are tight.
Knowing that a large population of orchid is successful female
business owners, I was hoping that somewhere out there might be some
advice or helpful pointers to grants/low interest loans or whatever
for women to start their own business. My wife, Salli, is an
exceptional artist whose dream is to do this very thing. Any help at
all is greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Terry Swift Vashon Island, WA
