My business is … Hug Your Hero Gifts, Inc., which is all about giving thanks and hugs to heroes of all kinds—military, teachers, firefighters, police officers, veterans, and breast cancer survivors—through the signature “Have you hugged a hero today?” shirts and product line.
My dream is … to be a successful entrepreneur, mother, and mentor/leader to those who are in need. We have plans to expand to two nonprofit organizations, one to help those who need any kind of help and the other to assist visually impaired people gain their independence by providing transportation to and from doctor’s appointments, errands, and grocery stores.
I launched because … I wanted to be empowered to be what I have the full potential to be. I wanted the freedom to be able to raise my 6-year-old daughter, work with her class, attend field trips, and work on our long-term family goals on our own time and not someone else’s time schedule.
One day you’ll see me … all across the nation, doing fundraisers, benefits, raising money for those in need, assisting our military and their families and spreading hugs across the nation.
Ladies Who Launch has helped me … understand that I don’t have to do this all by myself. I now have a network of wonderful, talented, and experienced friends to help me down the road to entrepreneurship. Ladies Who Launch has been the best thing in starting my business: I have received a lot of wonderful advice, found great new friends, and business partners. It’s a great family and I love them all.
