Many entrepreneurs hope for that one in a million business. DeAnna Reposa took it a step further making it to one in 100 entrepreneurs who reached the final stages of Martha Stewart’s Made in America contest.
Reposa’s business, Simple Peace, sells reusable shopping bags that are made in Orange County from recycled, organic or sustainable fabrics, like recyclable cotton or sustainable hemp.
“I think Martha Stewart is amazing… What she has been able to do throughout her life,” is incredible, Reposa said. “Just that she recognized what I’ve done is already a big accomplishment.”
Being a finalist gives Reposa some reassurance that she is on the right track and some encouragement to keep going
