Ashley Baker, owner and founder of The Good Card, created plantable greeting cards that have a second life, growing wildflower plants.
Baker said as her company grew, she became aware of new opportunities including the Rhyze Ventures program that she found to be a grounding place where she discovered mentors and community. “I gained a sounding board where I could learn from others and share with colleagues,” she said. “Community is so important as a solo entrepreneur.”
During the program, Baker learned to think bigger. “Working with my mentor on my company’s vision for growth, I learned to think bigger than just what I can manage by myself,” she said. “She pushed me to dream bigger.”
