Today’s entrepreneur is Kelli Girsch of BuyBabyDeals.com.
When and why did you start your business?
Mompreneur of three over here started our daily deal website for mommies, babies and kids August 2012! Moms have a hard enough time juggling work, sports, husbands and the kids to worry about scoring deals on baby gear. I created this site so moms alike can save up to 75% on all the must have baby, toddler and kid gear every day!
A new deal every day is featured at 9AM PST, MAMMAS can look forward to direct deals emailed to them in their inbox every day. Best part, I am mom! everything we sell is a product I have tried and tested on my own kiddos!
Describe your business in 20 words or less.
We offer a positively unique item every day at prices up to 80% off retail. Starting at 9AM PST daily.
What is your biggest success or accomplishment you’re most proud of in your business?
Although, I haven’t been in business that long, I will never forget the day I made my first sale! I will never forget her name and see her pop up on reorders to this day.
Instead of me reaching out to vendors to let me PLEASE buy some of their items to feature on my deal of the day site, the vendors actually started calling “me” to be featured on “my” site! WOW what a feeling
Style Magazine recently agreed to publish an article about buybabydeals.com and had their photographer come out to our house to do a photo shoot with me, speechless, what a great feeling!
What advice would you give other entrepreneurs when they are first starting out?
You will never regret the things you DID do, only the ones you DID NOT do. I remind myself of this daily and it is what drives me to succeed. If you have an invention, business plan thought or idea:
1. Write it down
2. Create a dream board, what are your goals?
3. Network, network, network!
4. Jump! Take the dive and make your dreams a reality! If this mamma of three can do it, so can you!
Where do you see your company in three years?
We would LOVE to branch off to :
But more importantly, I run the race every day like most moms, my goal in achieving buybabydeals.com’s success is to be home with my kids more while making my dreams come true as well as the lives of other crafty moms! We have recently started featuring Crafty Etsy moms with great mommy inspired inventions.
