Three women speak on starting their small businesses

Three women speak on starting their small businesses

‘I didn’t have any idea how I’d get from A to B’
Katie Burford, owner of Cream Bean Berry in Durango, spoke alongside Stephanie Carton, owner and designer of The Eli Monster, and Jenny Newcomer, founder and chief goal officer of Commit 30, at the 10th annual Women’s Small Business Conference at Sky Ute Casino about how she successfully opened a business while raising children.
Katie Burford said she was reluctant to start a small business most of her life after watching the challenges her parents endured in running their own.
Stephanie Carton, founder, designer and owner of The Eli Monster, says one key for new small businesses is to push through the lows. Small businesses, she says, are a series of highs and lows, and perseverance at low points is a key to survival.
Katie Burford said having the courage to make mistakes and learn from them counts for a lot when it comes to starting a successful business.
