Ana Lewis of Native or Not | WBC, VBOC, StreetShares
In this episode, I talk with Ana Lewis of Native or Not. Ana and I have something in common; at the time of this recording, our husbands were both stationed at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama. Because of that commonality, we do talk about a lot of resources that are specific to the Huntsville area, but you can definitely use those ideas as a foundation for finding similar resources in your own duty location. We also discuss how Ana’s search for funding led her to the StreetShares grant program, her participation in the pitch presentation, and how that process was such a boost for growing her fledgling business.
