Sole 2 Sole, LLC in Galva, was a winner of The American Small Business Championship, a program providing expert training, resources and networking opportunities to small business owners from coast to coast made possible by a 700-thousand dollar grant award from Sam’s Club.
Sole 2 Sole was one of the 102 small business winners across the country that was awarded a one-thousand dollar Sam’s Club gift card, an all-expenses-paid trip to a training event, SCORE mentoring for one year, and promotion throughout the year to showcase each Champion’s story.
Anne Johnson owner of Sole 2 Sole was selected by a judging panel comprised of small business experts based on the sacrifices made to help their business succeed. In 2011, Johnson purchased a century-old bank building on Galva’s Main Street… creating the Sole 2 Sole fitness center and The Meeting Place, a space for public meetings and events.
Johnson says she will use the one-thousand dollars to purchase a LCD projector, AV cart, and other computer technology items from Sam’s Club that can be used for group fitness classes and small business meetings.
