Meet Diana Goodwin | President & Founder, AquaMobile
Every small business begins with a dream, but where do those dreams come from? In many cases, entrepreneurs have a moment of need, in which they realize there is no available service to solve a problem for them. This moment is what sparks something within ourselves that inspires a startup. Business owners are problem solvers, above all, and most look to serve a need that exists within their community, as well as expanding into communities outside. Each year, The Small Business Challenge Contest looks to highlight small businesses that are innovative, well thought out, and which could use a little boost to achieve success. At the Women in Biz Network, we were lucky enough to have a chance to interview this years winner, Diana Goodwin, the president and founder of AquaMobile.AquaMobile offers the incredible service of at-home swimming lessons. With the knowledge that 60% of childhood drownings occur in home pools, Diana saw a need, as well as a way to serve her community. Not only did Diana enter the contest with the hope of winning, she entered with a clear vision of what the prize money would do for her company and outreach. With $100,000, Diana plans to hire two new employees and expand her marketing effort.Originally posted October 15th, 2016 on Women In Biz Network.
