Default Re: have you quit your day job

I have thought about it, but to be honest I love what I'm doing right now too much. I get the best of both worlds. I run a licensed home daycare. I get to be home with my own children, spend time with other children and when they are napping and in the evening is when I make my bows.

Prior to opening my daycare I was a psych nurse in a 109 bed facility. Some days I feel like throwing in the towel and just working on bows but most times I'm pretty happy.

I sell in a few stores and just brought my product in and asked to speak to the owner or manager. I sell bulk orders at a wholesale price to a few stores and others are on a consignment basis.

I also get quite a few customers by word of mouth. I donate bows and hats to our local children's hospital. My oldest daugher (5) has a metabolic condition and has spent a considerable amount of time there. I attach a business card to the ones I donate and often get calls that way.
