NOT THROWING AWAY THEIR SHOT
Bows before bros! With skilled marketing, impressive social media (nearly 100k on Instagram!) and skyrocketing sales, Baby Bling moved into a 10,000-square-foot space and is already growing out of it. Its headbands are manufactured locally by more than 90 mothers and they are sold at over 850 brick-and-mortar boutiques, at large department stores like Nordstrom and Bloomingdales, and on its own retail website.
JUST YOU WAIT — GOALS
1. Invest more in the look and feel of the office.
2. Develop new product lines that will be available to a broader range of retailers.

“We like to use the phrase ‘your mom …’ as a comeback. As in, ‘Your mom is a fun fact!’” Harris says. “We also have a community of pink crocs. They are so ugly, but at least once a week, someone can’t take their cute (i.e. uncomfortable) shoes a minute longer.”
“Take your time. Scale properly.”
