Melody Johnson, Owner of Divine Covering, LLC, creates keepsake bridal bouquets; ‘grinders on the go’, which are ‘bedazzeled’ water bottles; and desk dazzle, which are ‘blinged out’ office supplies.

Melody worked with a CEDA Specialist receiving business plan assistance and business operation advice.  She took third place in Onondaga SBDC’s 2018 “Cayuga Pitch” competition, held at our offices at 2 State Street.  “The Pitch” is an annual, four-week educational series for entrepreneurs concluding with a “pitch” to local business owners and professional service providers.  Top participants are awarded cash prizes to further grow their businesses.

“The process of becoming a successful business owner is arduous, but having [CEDA’s] support has been very helpful.” ~Melody Johnson
