After losing her full-time job in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Joan found the WWBC resources, drew inspiration and expression from her life, and launched the eCommerce website Cottage Garden Studio needed to succeed.

 

Her online stationery shop features three different collections of painted notecards inspired by the green mountains of Vermont, where Batchelder picked up a paintbrush for the first time in decades, and continued to Wyoming where she has her business based in Jackson.

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