Tell us about your business: I design and create modest clothing for Tween Girls
What inspired you to start your business? Trying to find clothing, especially swimwear, for my daughter.
What has been the biggest challenge in your business and how have you dealt with it? There have been many challanges: from computer issues, financial dificulties, and modifying/creating patterns to marketing online, but probably the most perplexing one is other moms. They agree with me in theory that their daughters should be dressing more modestly, but then I see them wearing very immodest clothing. This is just in the 8-12 year old age range.
What would you say has contributed to your business success? Perseverence.
What advice would you like to offer to other women/moms who are thinking about starting a business? Be prepared to be in it for the long haul. Most likely, finding youself in the black will take a few years.
What is your favorite tool/resources you use for your business and why? Probably the internet. (I am old enough to remember life before it).You can find information, supplies, support, whatever you need in a matter of seconds.
Share one business goal you have for your business: I want to be able to quit my job and stay at home with my daughter. We homeschool and it has been hard these last few years with me having to work.
