“The 2011 ranking reveals that home business and small business is a serious business‐ more relevant than ever. It’s a natural response to loss of job opportunities, the need for supplemental income and the sheer passion for managing your own business. It is imperative to support small businesses and seek out opportunities that benefit and support their growth. Our company focus is geared to helping small businesses build their product lines, boost their brand, and really get their names out there,” remarked Brandy Runyan, CEO and Founder of Pish Posh Applesauce, LLC and Black Diamond Celebrity Gifting Division. “Black Diamond is focused on creating avenues of opportunity for that work‐at-home‐ mom who is knitting at night after the babies have been put to bed. Our operation is passionate about creating pathways to financial stability while catering to the small business budget in today’s economy. We seek to provide invaluable exposure through high‐profile marketing and creative advertising.”
Black Diamond’s Celebrity Gifting Event for Beyonce & Blue Ivy was a selective event to celebrate the 1st birthday of Beyonce’s daughter, Blue Ivy. Laurels Originals created two creative hand-painted canvas totes for the event. One is a dedicated diaper bag while the other serves as a weekend bag.
