Reflecting on my journey as a female small business owner, I’m so appreciative of receiving this nomination and the opportunity to sit among a long list of very accomplished women.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 13, 2013
Today, Kara Jensen, creative principal of Bop Design, represented the company at the 20th Annual Women Who Mean Business Awards hosted by the "San Diego Business Journal." The nominees include a list of more than 50 female business professionals, ranging from small business entrepreneurs to national brand executives.
“Reflecting on my journey as a female small business owner, I’m so appreciative of receiving this nomination and the opportunity to sit among a long list of very accomplished women,” says Jensen.
Jensen’s transition from Graphic Designer at LPL Financial to owning her own marketing business came after years of strategic planning. Jensen says, “Starting Bop Design with my husband in 2008 was not an overnight process. It took 80-hour work weeks and balancing two full time jobs while we raised the capital.”
Jensen encourages other female entrepreneurs to make the jump, but cautions that the process is at times stressful and unstable. Investing in trusted advisors, inspiring employees, and, most importantly, yourself are some of the key tips Jensen gives to aspiring business owners.
“I applaud 'San Diego Business Journal' for continuing this award, now in its 20th year, as a way to celebrate local female leaders and role models,” says Jensen.
The Women Who Mean Business Awards took place at the Town and Country Resort & Convention Center in San Diego and gave Awards of Distinction to Danah Fayman (Lifetime Achievement Award), Dr. Karen Haynes (Darlene Marcos Shiley Educational Leadership Award), and Joyce Glazer (Exemplary Service Award).
