When Cami Nyquist founded Swedemom.com 22 years ago, she planned to run a global web-based business. She has succeeded; in fact, Swedemom was featured by eBay as one of their 25 sellers reflecting community values in 2020.
She also has found ways to enrich the community in which she grew up by adding a charitable arm, Swedemom Center of Giving, which was named 2020 Workforce Partner of the Year by the McMinnville Economic Development Partnership. She also helped found and grow MacHub.
“To be known by your community makes integrity all the more important,” she said. “Having the support of my community is tremendous, and I realize I couldn’t do any of this without that support.”
Entrepreneurial by nature, she has been an online marketplace platform developer since 1999, and integrating her business and her values has always been crucial.
“I try to live my brand: it’s about simplicity, compassion and caring,” she said. “Wherever I am, I will be encouraging people to come together and help each other out.”
