International Women's Day in Dunedin, FL

The She Believed Mural is located at Cueni Brewing Company! Take a photo with it and tag @KayCoastalDesigns to celebrate International Women's Day every day!

For those who have never experienced the small-town connections of Dunedin firsthand, I can personally attest to this city's ability to network! Especially when it comes to the women. Never have I seen a more welcoming, and outgoing group of business women, looking not only to promote their own businesses, but also to promote others! This was clearly apparent at our International Women's Day event at Cueni Brewing Company on Sunday, March 7th!

What makes all these women business-owners so amazing, is that they believe in the town, they believe in it's people, and most of all, they believe in themselves!

As the saying goes: She Believed She Could So She Did!

Let's take a look at some of the inspiring women-owned businesses in this town! Feel free to check out their links and follow their pages!
