Business Entrepreneur Feature: Initials Inc

I recently attended the Initials, Inc West Coast tour launch.  Initials, Inc was founded by two moms, Britney Vickery and Ivy Hall,  who wanted to be there for their families, but also wanted to have successful careers.   They created a handbags, personalized products and home organization company that has rapidly grown into a multi-million dollar company within 8 years.  Their passion for entrepreneurship launched a nation-wide company that is slated to be a 400 million dollar company!

After their success in the midwest and south, the company made a decision to bring the product line and business opportunity to other women and launched a direct selling business.  The company grew so fast they decided to bring the products to the West Coast.

As a Social Entrepreneur I can definitely relate to their story of a passion to connect others and building  a successful  entrepreneurial dream.  After finding out about their story, I decided to create the “Business Entrepreneur Feature” on the blog to feature other women and men who are doing remarkable things to build businesses.

It was great to meet Pat Sheehan - National Field Development Director at Initials, Inc

Initials Inc Product line

The products at Initials Inc are durable and trendy.  I especially love their Initials, Inc Signature bags and scarfs.   I am also in love with the quality of the materials the products are made of as well as the affordable prices.  There were many women from Southern California present to learn about the business and how they could start a home-based business as well.

Absolutely loved this scarf!

 

Since the business is in its early stages in the West Coast, women who join now will have the opportunity to grow their business rapidly.  This year Initials Inc celebrated it’s 8 year anniversary.
