I am proud and honored to announce that Babies at the Barre has been chosen as an American Small Business Champion by SCORE and Sam’s Club!
The American Small Business Championship (championship.score.org) awarded this title to 102 small businesses, two in every state and the District of Columbia, for their dedication to the success of their businesses. Each state winner will be awarded a $1,000 Sam’s Club gift card, an all-expense-paid trip to a training and networking event in Dallas, TX, SCORE mentoring and publicity throughout the year. Each Champion is also eligible for one of three $25,000 grand prizes.
I am so honored to have been chosen for this award! When I began this business almost two years ago in 2015, I just wanted to be able to teach barre and pilates style classes without having to leave my 4 month old with a sitter. My dream began to grow as interest began to grow in classes in my area. Soon I wanted to be able to offer safe and effective exercise for new moms done while baby is worn in a carrier and moms get a chance to connect with other new moms. I hoped to serve the community by providing the best new mom postpartum class and experience around.
Again, this dream grew as interest was not only local, but national. I developed the Babies at the Barre™ Comprehensive Instructor Manual and began training other moms so they could re-create this great class for moms in their communities. I have been amazed that what I started locally has expanded to include instructors in 5 states and countless numbers of moms who have taken classes and learned about safe ways to exercise postpartum.
The prizes, training, publicity and SCORE mentoring Babies at the Barre, LLC have been awarded will help take this business to the next level, and better serve you, our instructors, clients, fellow moms, and friends. We look forward to attending the training event in Dallas, TX next month!
Thank you for your support! I can't wait to bring you more from Babies at the Barre™!
