A shout-out is appropriate for Winter Park entrepreneurs Anna and Nathan Bond for not only successfully operating their startup business over these past 10 years, but also for thriving selling paper-based products like planners and thank-you cards at a time in which communication has shifted to digital. This past week’s spread in the Wall Street Journal notes that the company has grown to 150 employees without debt or external investment even though it competes against far larger companies. Rifle Paper provides a playbook for would-be entrepreneurs on how focus on creativity and value for customers, and a dose of common sense, pays off. Well done, Anna and Nathan.
