Wonderful news from France -- Liz Forkin Bohannon is a finalist in Cartier's Women's Initiative Awards! Liz was my first interview for Pursuit of Spark, here's her delightful and inspiring story again.
I met Liz Forkin Bohannon in 2010 at Seth Godin's fantastic workshop for women entrepreneurs. Her ebullience and humor are what I noticed first, and then I began to understand the determination and imagination that have allowed her to develop a successful company from scratch. With the money she'd saved from babysitting jobs and a sewing machine her parents gave her for her birthday, Liz beganSseko Sandals, which employs young women in Uganda so they can earn the money they need to go to university. This week Liz talks about how she got Sseko off the ground.
