We’re kicking off October by Celebrating Women’s Small Business Month
In 1972, there were a little over 400,000 women-owned businesses in the United States. Until 1988, women needed a male relative to co-sign if they wanted to apply for a business loan. Today, there are over 13 million women-owned businesses and counting.
Team Honeycutt’s fabric has a history steeped in strong women that continues today. When it began, the foundational belief was that success in business can be found in service to the community. Founded in 1990, Betty and Diane Honeycutt set out to build personal relationships with clients and community rooted in service!
Betty used every ounce of her time and energy until her homecoming in 2022 to make an impact – and boy did she! She is remembered as the lady that got it done. Diane was right by her side every step of the way, carving the same path and speaking the same language. Diane’s service on numerous boards and as a County Commissioner has shaped and continues to shape our community and its leaders.
All these years later, that foundational belief continues. Jennifer Parsley Hubbard stepped in as the Vice President of Operations in 2022. As a community citizen and volunteer, she serves the City of Concord as a Councilwoman and on several boards as well. Jennifer continues to take the platform and share messages of hope and being a servant leader.
Together, Diane and Jennifer founded the Cabarrus County Youth Leadership Institute and kicked off the first year in 2022! Raising up the next generation of leaders is a critical part of the fabric and these ladies know our youth are the future.
While the ladies of Team Honeycutt (Margaret, Lora, Kristin, Dakeita, Jessica and Amy) are often seen in their primary role as real estate leaders – they wear many hats! These women are wives, mothers, small business owners, volunteers, board members and the heartbeat of our community. These women have received SO many awards that we have lost count, but you won’t see anything displayed except for their smiling faces and extended hands.
On most any given day you will see these ladies out and about – still applying that foundational principle – service always equals success!
We celebrate the impact women have on our economy, our communities, our families, and our hearts.
