How old were you when you started and where did your idea come from?
I started when I was 5 years old, and my dad had just returned after undergoing stem cell transplants. He had instructions to eat healthy, and made overnight oats frequently. But I decided to make it more interesting & yummy!
What was the biggest mistake you made and what did you learn from it?
We bought our supplies from a store that was very high in quality, but we later realized that it was so expensive that we didn't make a profit! Next time, we HAVE to take the cost into account - I realize math really is important!
What are your future plans for the business?
I plan to furnish my website, and as it is on Facebook currently, I hope to move it to its own site. I also want to turn an extra room in our garage into a space where people within driving distance can pick up the overnight oats advertised on the website. I plan to make and sell more varieties of overnight oats, with creative and fun names like Berry Blast, Oh Honey, and Choco Extreme! Eventually, I want to expand the business so we can ship it to customers all over the country!
Any advice for other girls starting a business?
Do your research and find a business that sells items that other people want. And, make sure you to select product(s) that you are excited about yourself.
