I’ve spent years in a thriving sales career building a legacy through various business channels. Being left with an overwhelming need to try my hand at something that is more fulfilling and purposeful, I decided to breathe life into my ultimate passion project with the creation of AnnaBae Bakery; an online licensed bakery named after my mother. My mother has been baking since 1963 using recipes that were passed down to her through three generations of amazingly soulful and passionate women. My family has a long-standing tradition of baking and as a child, I excitedly ate cake for every special occasion. My favorite recipe was my mother's version of her grandmother's red velvet cake. Baking has become a tradition that I have been inspired to carry-on and share with my children and community. I believe that women have the power to impact the world by nurturing and developing businesses that operate with intention and purpose. I would like to invite you to donate capital to help build a legacy of lifting up female entrepreneurs and breaking ground with a brick-and-mortar for AnnaBae bakery. I kindly request that you start by donating here with my GoFundMe campaign. I have set a minimum goal of $5000 to $500,000 plus uncapped. Your generous donation will afford me the opportunity to maintain the state-of-the-art baking equipment and supplies for my operation also allow me to effectively bake on a larger scale without compromising the integrity of our homemade baking process. With your donation I will continue to invest in marketing strategies to increase company exposure. I will expand from an online bakery to a brick-and-mortar becoming a staple at many more life-changing events, special days, and unforgettable milestones. Together we will secure a brick-and-mortar giving more people a sweet taste of their childhoods—one delectable bake at a time.
