    Making it in America: Mompreneurs

    Hand made hair bows made for a princess, fit for a queen!

     
    I'm a housewife, mother of four, and also a sole proprietor business owner.

    I handcraft girls boutique hair accessories, cheer bows, personalized necklaces, and survival bracelets (can't forget about the boys)!

    My home-based business was born from the need of hair accessories for my oldest daughter when she started pre-school. It was fun for me to make hair bows to match her outfits, and gave me something to do to feel productive from home. It's challenging for stay home moms to feel like their "contributing" when all the other adults around us are out in the work-force while we're at home doing our house hold duties, taking care of little ones, and all of the other jobs a home-bound mommie takes on!

    A short while later, I decided to try and take my bows public. I set up an Etsy shop, visited a local boutique with my bows, and started using social media to promote my business venture.

    Currently, my bows can be found online on Etsy.com, at a boutique named Klassy Kids of Jesup, Ga, and in the Peaches n' Cream store of Burlington, N.C.

    I absolutely love my work! I wake up every day excited to get orders out, promote my online shop, and make new things for my customers, friends, and family.

    Being a mompreneur, means I get to have the best of both worlds - working mom, and stay at home mom/wife, and enjoying all that goes along with both.
