How old were you when you started and where did your idea come from?
I was 9 years old when I started my business. I've always loved making and playing with slime. I also enjoy watching slime videos. During my quarantine summer I had more time to play with slime and thought it would be cool to have a slime business.
What are your future plans for the business?
I have recently started to explore in person events and pop-ups. They have been great because I really enjoy meeting new people. I would love to do more in person events in the future for different organizations (i.e. businesses, churches, schools, camps, etc.). These types of events would give me an opportunity to teach more people about the science the slime and how playing with slime can be both a fun and relaxing experience.
Any advice for other girls starting a business?
1 ) START 2) ASK FOR HELP 3) DON'T GIVE UP
I would also encourage other girls to be S.L.I.M.E. - Savvy, Loving, Innovative, Mindful, and Empowered. You should be creative and pursue your passion in a way that will encourage other girls to also start a business of their own.
