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.
Reposaâ€™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.
â€œI think Martha Stewart is amazingâ€¦ What she has been able to do throughout her life,â€ is incredible, Reposa said. â€œJust that she recognized what Iâ€™ve done is already a big accomplishment.â€
Being a finalist gives Reposa some reassurance that she is on the right track and some encouragement to keep going
