Congratulations to Janet LeBerge of Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap and Good Deeds, recently named 2013 Entrepreneur of the Year by Business Owners Idea Café! Each year readers nominate business leaders who have made an impact over the last year, and Janet earned the most online votes (4191). Of the many great things that voters and nominators had to say about Janet, an example reads: “[She] does so much for the community. Dirty Deeds helps people deal with difficult transitions with ease. And the proceeds from her Good Deeds shop help a different charity each month by giving them a very substantial check. Her staff is amazing — they always make you feel welcome.” Read more about Janet and her award here.
