Four years after launching a business out of her home basement, Dianne Grossman (center in photo), founder of The Carpet Girl (www.thecarpetgirl.com) in Springfield, was named recipient of the Believe Inspire Grow (B.I.G.) “Driven to Success” Award at a gala at the MetLife Building in New York City.
“I am deeply honored that my peers at B.I.G. selected me for this special award, particularly given the instrumental role this organization has played in building my business,” says Grossman. “In 2012, I started The Carpet Girl in my basement with $1000, a handful of business cards, and the vision to help professional and consumer clients design spaces with high-end flooring at reasonable prices.”
