Bliss No. 10
Owner: Ann Everett
'Inspired By: I have always loved nail polish, and I was a nail tech for several years. Also, my oldest daughter loves watching DIY videos and asked me one day if she could make some fingernail polish. It was cute - not very good - but very cute, and I began to wonder how I can make good quality fingernail polish. One thing led to another and the rest is history.
Products Offered: I make fingernail polish. I personally craft each color. It is long-lasting and quick drying, and does not contain many of the harsh chemicals that the name brands have.
Advice to Aspiring Entrepreneurs: A friend told me something that echoes in my mind everytime I get flustered. "You absolutely can do it. Just keep moving." Even when you get distracted or lose momentum, take the next step. Even if it's just one step. Keep moving forward.

Norma’s Bath and Body
Owner: Norma McElroy
Inspired By: I had a car accident that put me out of work. While at home, I became bored. To deal with that boredom, I started spending time crafting. In 2004, I began making soaps.
Products Offered: I make a variety of homemade products, including bath soaps and lotions. I design beautiful gift baskets containing my homemade products.
Advice to Aspiring Entrepreneurs: Be very much prepared to work hard and nothing less. There will be long hours and be sure to do lots of research. Be persistent, no matter what. The hard work will be worth it if you continue on the journey.
