Mind Your Business CEO, Karen Caruso, has been selected as the 2011 North Carolina Small Business Person of the Year by the US Small Business Association (SBA). The award will be presented at National Small Business Week in Washington D.C., May 18-20. The congratulatory letter states “Your hard work, innovative ideas, and dedication to your community have helped you succeed. The SBA is pleased to recognize your achievements and your role in driving our nation’s economic growth”. Having been previously recognized as an elite business in Western North Carolina, this step up is emphatic of the success that MYB has experienced throughout the economic downturn. MYB stands out to most businesses due to it’s simple and personable philosophy. The desire to help people was what founded MYB and is the reason they continue to exist. For Karen, while “fiscal gains are inevitable for a successful company, they are certainly not a pre-requisite for us”. With values based on altruism, customer-service and client appreciation, MYB stands out as an organization that can compete against the best on a business level, while also offering the best to their customers. In a post on this blog last year regarding SBA awards and the recognition that MYB had received, there was no doubt of the implication that 2011 would be a bigger and better year. Such an accolade as the Small Business Person of the Year certainly takes Karen and MYB to the next level, and it is all the more exciting to see what the future holds. We will be posting more information regarding National Small Business Week and the ceremony nearer to the time, but for now please join me in passing on your congratulations to Karen!]]>
