About W & Co

Running a small business can be demanding — the hours, the thinking, the problem-solving, it can all be fairly overwhelming at times.

As small business owners ourselves we understand how demanding lifestyle can be and over time it can really take a toll. It is important to recognize in ourselves when it is time for a sea change, but it isn’t always easy to recognize what that change might be.

When we got to this point ourselves, decided to look to our peers and small business owners for help. We were blown away by how many amazing individuals were willing to share their stories, challenges, and resources to help us on our way. The entire process opened our mind to fresh perspectives and a new way of doing business. 

It was these conversations that helped us find clarity, push our business forward, feel more inspired, and connected than ever before.

It was these conversations that inspired the development of Wonderment & Co (W&Co. A place where small business owners come together to learn from each other and expand ideas.

Wonderment & Co is produced and funded by Notebox.
