FEMALE MAKER MARKET
MEET THE FOUNDER
Meet Ronnie M
I am so proud to be able to share who I am with all of you! My name is Ronnie, and many in my CommUNITY know me as Ronnie M because of my Jewelry line, which I have curated and designed for 12 years now. I am so passionate about having you here in a setting where our main pillar is, CommUNITY. I emphasize UNITY because that is truly the nectar of who we are, and what we represent.
We united and our CommUNITY was born, on Small Business Saturday, 2020 in the midst of a Pandemic and shutdown that affected collectively, over 99.9% of all US Small Businesses, and adversely, 4.4 million small businesses were born in 2020. Identifying this as a Small Business Owner myself, I created the vision to have a platform, in a Marketplace setting, for small business owners and curators to UNITE.
Over the course of time, since 2020, our collective and commUNITY has blossomed. Together, we have over 500 small businesses registered with us and have either applied or been accepted as Merchants to a series of Pop-Up Markets we have hosted since 2020. The goal and anticipation I have for this commUNITY is to provide, Female Entrepreneurs the opportunity to bloom with us here.
I focus greatly on the optimization of cultivating commUNITY through Curated "Pop-Up" Markets throughout So Cal as well as Pop-Up Socials and Developmental workshops for women in business to come and learn from experts, more about running a succinct business. The vision is clear for me as the Founder, and that is, we are just beginning here as one. By the end of 2022, my goal is to become a Non-Profit that promotes Entrepreneurship opportunities with Grants and Scholarships to small business owners in our commUNITY.
As a Latina, I take pride in the essence of cultural diversity, and I honor all women in business to take a place on our platform to grow and co-create a sanctuary of success for all.
I am a proud mother of two, I have been married to my College Love since 2008, I believe in the power of Alignment, Manifestation, Intention and I identify myself as a Conscious Entrepreneur. The Aries that I am, I am also a small business owner and have run profitable brick and mortars since 2018. A graduate in Marketing, with a bachelor's from Cal State San Bernardino, collectively over 10 years in Leadership and ready, to lead this commUNITY here!
I create opportunities for other women to rise into their power and passion here at the Female Maker Market, and I am happy to share who I am with all of you today. I hope you stay a while, and most of all, I hope you join us too as a Merchant or as a Supporter, we welcome you! We are, the Female Maker Market.
