How did you get involved with Photo Bake Shop?
In 2005 I went through a divorce. The working world was new to me, because like many woman, I chose to be a stay-at-home mom for 10 years. I realized when I was forced to earn money, that my confidence was extremely low. Maybe I’d been outside of the work world for too long … so I had to push myself.
The first thing I did was make a list of everything I wanted in a career. My “wish list” seemed like a pipe dream while writing it, but to my surprise, it became a reality within 1 year.
#1 – I wanted a flexible schedule.
#2 – I wanted to work from home, so I could be available for my kids during the day.
#3 – I was used to a nice lifestyle when I was married, so I was committed to earning at least $5,000 a month.
One month later, I ran into a friend who was retiring from her cookie business. She taught me the introductory lessons of personalized cookie printing. I thought I would give it a try it. The next thing I knew, I was operating Photo Bake Shop® where I initially worked from my home kitchen and then added onto my home where the business was developed over the next 10 years.
