On April 27th, 2017, we brought together Black Entrepreneurs and Business Resources for HIVE Networking Activity that granted awards to randomly selected participants. Register for the October 26th ResourceFULL event.
Checking in with our April 2017 Awardees:
Mark and Lisa Goldsby, Team PHINE
About Team PHINE
Thee new for-profit brand name to assist in building confidence from within,
where true beauty comes from. Phine encourages people to use positive slogans
to promote themselves, such as; So Phine, Baby Phine, Heavenly Phine, Angel
Phine, Phined Your Dreams, etc. What type of PHINE are you? Phine will never
support any type of negativity but hopes to bring positive sayings that will
encourage, uplift, and inspire you. Phine is a true believer of promoting goodness
and ‘phineness’ throughout the world. Who says it’s not okay to be your own best
friend? Not PHINE! Phine wants to shed light where there is darkness and wants
all people to know you can shine with Phine. Are you ready to join the team?

After speaking with our contacts and receiving some useful feedback,
we are thinking of using it to get our website finished and e-commerce ready
and/or invest in new products, such as shorts, tanks, or sweats. The unbiased
feedback from our contacts has given us several things to think about as we move
forward with the business. We also gained a potential contact for not only web
design but also screenprinting, which is awesome! Thank you so much for putting
this event together.
