A recent Global State of Small Business Report from Meta shows that 92% of women-owned businesses in Florida are operational — performing significantly better than most other states.
Janna Lewkow, founder of Tallahassee-based Sweet Southern Boutique knows the challenges small business owners have faced — from decreased sales at the height of the pandemic to supply chain challenges.
Social media has been crucial for Lewkow to overcome challenges and grow her business. The Facebook Shops feature connects a national audience of 1,400+ followers who can directly purchase her products and her Facebook group has helped her build customer relationships that go beyond sales.
