Out of Proportion Studios in Lodi, NJ Wins a $25,000 Intuit Hiring Grant

Shawndra Cox from Out of Proportion Studios is January’s winner of a $25,000 Intuit Hiring Grant, sponsored by Intuit Online Payroll.  She is now also one of three finalists in the running to have her grant doubled to $50,000. 

Shawndra’s winning nomination was the one that she submitted for her own business!  Here’s what she had to say about her business: “One of my favorite things to do as a graphic designer is create new ideas, and designs. As a business owner, I take that love for creating to help others start up or improve their own new businesses. What could be better?!”

As a one-woman shop, Shawndra is thrilled that she’s now going to be able to use the grant money to hire some additional employees with different skills to round out her business’ services.  Shawndra has some specific people in mind who she would like to hire.  According to Shawndra, those potential employees are “very skilled and very hard-working”. 

It’s not too late for you to be featured in our next winner’s announcement.  A new Intuit Hiring Grant competition started on February 1! Vote for your business on LoveALocalBusiness.com today.

There are not too many people I can think of who deserve this more. Such a hard worker, and one who lives up to her motto of "making something out of nothing".I've had the extreme privilege of seeing her in action and have been the recipient of her help with my new "brand".She's helped so many people with her ideas and encouragement, and begrudges no one she's helped, their success while she struggles to make a living on her own.She's my hero, she's who I strive to be more like, she's who I want to be when I grow up. She's my wonderful daughter!Congratulations my love, goodness knows you worked hard enough. I wish you much more success and hope you win the next round.
