Cheyenne Shoe-Maker Refocuses & Expands Hobby into Business 

Alyssa Lenell-White is a born-and-raised Cheyenneite and the owner and artist behind Aly L’s Custom Boots & Shoes’ tailor-made, luxury cowboy boots, shoes, and leather goods.

 

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Lenell-White found herself refocused on her small business, and an acquaintance pushed her toward the free services of the Wyoming Women’s Business Center (WWBC). “I struggled with confidence and whether my business was worth putting the energy into,” she said. “Having somebody come to me and say ‘This is worth it,’ gave me the confidence to take those steps forward.”

"I have gotten so much great guidance as I transitioned into a business owner

from an employee… I would highly recommend [the WWBC] to anyone who is

looking for guidance on navigating the complexities of being an entrepreneur."
