The Carroll County Chamber of Commerce named Angela Dailey, Owner/Publisher of West Georgia Woman Magazine as the 2019 Start-Up Business of the Year during the Membership Barbecue held Thursday, August 22 at Mill Town Music Hall.
Despite many obstacles, Angela printed her first issue of West Georgia Woman Magazine in November 2015. With only a four-hour tutorial on graphic design, a big dream and a heart filled with determination, Ms. Dailey now publishes an incredibly successful magazine. The company has seen sales increase by a staggering 169% in just three years. Angela has more than doubled her employees and added two additional publications to the lineup.
Angela believes, “community involvement and support are paramount to owning a successful business.” Ms. Dailey is active in our community and supports non-profit and civic organizations including Carroll County CASA, March of Dimes. Circles of West Georgia, Carrollton Dawnbreakers Rotary, Rotary Club of Carrollton, Carroll County Sertoma Club, Carroll County Mental Health Advocates, and many more.
This year marks the third year for this award. The Start-Up of the Year award created to spotlight the importance of small business to the local, regional and national economy. There are approximately 29 million small businesses in the US according to the Small Business Administration (SBA). Georgia ranks number one for the best state for business with 808,285 registered small businesses in 2019 with 97.3% employing fewer than 100 employees. The Carroll Chamber is proud to serve small businesses, with a majority of the members employing fewer than 100 employees.
