Are you a bootstrapper or did you seek seed-funding? Was that the right decision in retrospect? by Cathy Nesbitt

We were definitely bootstrappers. We have never applied for government or other grants nor received any financial support. We did not want to report to anyone nor be responsible to execute someone else’s vision for our business. My husband and I have created a wonderful life doing work that we love that serves to create a more sustainable world. We are still thriving after 22 years. Our sustainable enterprise has impacted thousands. This was the correct choice for us at the time. Financial assistance for a start up may be necessary and beneficial in today’s crowded marketplace.
