Elevator Pitch:

Two dynamic authors combine their passions to inspire others to read. "The End" is the first title in their adventure series for girls.

Tell us about your business, what inspired you to get into it, what you sell/service you offer, what makes your business stand out and how it impacts you, your community or the environment.

2 chicks (aka Karen & Beth) began their journey together in 2016. An unlikely pairing to most, Beth, a librarian, and Karen, a coach and entrepreneur, discovered their common goal of inspiring all young girls to see the best in themselves and each other. They developed a unique writing partnership, starting the Ren & Friends series at "The End," of all places. The series follows a group of sporty, sassy, science-loving girls through life's ups and downs. We impact the community through reading.

How would you use the FedEx Small Business Grant money to make a significant impact on your business?

Literacy for all is integral to our business mission. The money would be spent to impact local communities, allowing us to print and distribute more books and put them into the hands of young readers who cannot afford them. Funds would allow us to travel and share our message directly through workshops, story times, and author visits. The grant would also allow us to expand our business into providing opportunities for young people to write and share their own stories through our publishing arm.
