This is it! For the past 10 weeks, we've featured a Doer of the Week -- a woman who has an inspiring and amazing business, just like Martha. We've mentioned many wonderful women -- from a baker
who whips up square-shaped cupcakes to an interior designer
who transforms women's shelters into places of peace and possibilities.
Starting tomorrow at 9 a.m. ET, you can vote for your favorite Doer of the Week. The poll voting will end on Friday, October 2 at 5 p.m. ET. The victor will win $2,500 for her business. The poll will be featured on the homepage of this site (meaning, the page you're looking at now). People who are not members of the Dreamers into Doers website can vote in the poll too.

The Glitter Girlz.
They throw colorful and crafting parties for young girls in hopes that it will channel a girl's inner creativity and boast confidence!
She handweaves handmade, classy wedding keepsakes such as lace ring bearer pillows and wedding purses.
She created an essential safety product for small pups. The product is very cute, and it could save a dog's life!
Robin Ross Wisotsky aka "Cupcakes Squared."
She owns a bakery that makes fabulous, square-shaped cupcakes.
She designs cute and whimsical jewelry called "Make Pie, Not War."
A decorating do-gooder! She transforms women's shelters into places of peace and possibilities.
She has an eco-friendly line of bath and body-care products. The scents are heavenly!
She founded a fun and engaging nonprofit that educates children about science.
Laura Brooke Allen.
She's a weight-loss guru! Laura lost 70 pounds this year and is helping others lose weight too.
She creates folk-art-style Halloween decorations, ranging from vintage-looking treat baskets to papier-mache sculptures to festive party hats.
Please note that this contest is separate from the official Dreamers into Doers contest, in which two women will receive $10,000 each for her business! The announcement of winners for the official Dreamers into Doers contest will be made during the week of October 5. Think of this "Doer of the Week" poll-voting contest as a fabulous mini-contest!
Lastly, don't be bummed if you were not featured as a Doer of the Week yet! On October 7, we're going to return to our weekly scheduled programming (LOL) and feature a Doer of the Week again! Please note, Doers of the Week featured in October and beyond will not win a monetary prize, but they'll be highlighted in a newsletter and honored on this lovely website. It's pretty cool to say you were featured in a Martha Stewart online newsletter, right?
I hope this all makes sense. If not, write to me in the comments section.
