Hi! Welcome to my blog!
I am Monica Dennis, a small business owner, with over 10 years invested in the creation and building of my company, Village Works Enterprises LLC. Village Works brings culture and community together in their product – greeting card jigsaw puzzles, children’s puzzles and customized puzzles. My business partner and I started with no previous business – or jigsaw puzzle manufacturing – experience to guide us.
In addition to the business, I am also a wife of nearly nine years and mother of 2 children whose existence helped to release and energize my entrepreneurial spirit.
Other stuff about me:
- I am a member of Iota Phi Lambda Sorority Inc., a group of business and professional women with the common goal of promoting excellence in business and serving the community.
- In college I was also a member of Alpha Phi Omega, national service fraternity, so I guess it's fitting that I eventally...
- ...served in AmeriCorps (the National Peace Corps started by former President Bill Clinton) working at a social service agency for a year and helping people whose lives were disrupted due to financial crisis.
- I spent that same year working as a chaplain intern, learning how to help individuals and their loved ones during times of stress and confusion.
- I have worked as a copy editor for a newspaper.
- I have worked first as a sales clerk, then I was asked to be assistant manager at a Dress Barn, all while I had a full-time job, thus my eventually deciding I needed to give up the part-time job.
- I get bored easily and need to keep busy.
