We’re super excited to announce that our very own Trevor Mauch has been (deservedly) recognized as one of the nation’s top entrepreneurs under 35.
What’s most meaningful to us isn’t really the award, although it is super cool… it’s what it means for rural entrepreneurs, especially in Oregon.
You don’t need to be in a big city to be a global company.
Heck, you don’t even have to be in a major town.
All it takes is passion and a whole lot of dedication and hard work… and anything is possible.
Thanks to all of our dedicated members for helping us grow our little business.
We totally appreciate your support and encouragement.
Here’s the full press release:
