Default Mom makes it big with bow business

I saw this story on the news tonight and I hunted down the video to share with you guys. I taped it and will watch it when I need some inspiration to keep going with my business. I apologize in advance, because this is probably in the wrong spot, but I REALLY wanted you to see it. It's very encouraging. Notice that the mom is using crystals in her bows and flower clips. I guess she didn't get the CPSIA memo. Her items are pretty pricey, especially for clips, but she is doing well and people are buying her stuff. Be sure you listen to hear how much the mom that makes jewelry makes in a month. I was like, "Say what!?"

anything is possible!!! you have to market yourself and push for sales and fight to be different and better than the next. I make about 800.00/wk on avg now and couldnt be more proud of myself. It has taken 7 years and a brick/mortar, several biz name changes and tons of different attempts with product. But when you hit your niche and what works you will know.

Whoa---This is awesome!!!!!!!!!

Now you know it can be done. If your items are unique and you've handmade them, it is NOT overpriced!!!!!!!!

Thanx for the inspiration

The gals in Swank Mommy live here in Pleasanton where I live. My daughter went to high school with them. The picture of them with their kids was taken at the park by my house.

Default Re: Mom makes it big with bow business

I too am more like the bow mommy than the jewelery mommy. My website even states :Custom orders are welcome and appreciated BUT please remember this is a very busy home-based business and I am a Mom first. I only work when my children's schedule allow.

I have had a very good response and people understand completely. Like this week... we all got H1N1 and I got pneumonia with in 3 days. Not alot of bow making going on here!
