Owner, Jodi's Gifts
"Our goal is to inspire customers to celebrate all of life's moments - the big and the small!"
Why did you start your business?
When I graduated college, I was in retail then moved into fashion. I was bored with my career and as a hobby I started making personal gifts for my friends. After taking booths at street fairs to sell my products, I turned my hobby into a legitimate business.
Today, I provide people with a seamless, personal experience when it comes to stationary, gifts, events and party details. My mission is to help others send beautiful handwritten notes, give personalized, thoughtful gifts, and plan amazing, stress-free events (I love to entertain!).
Biggest Achievement so far.....
Through my business I’ve donated a lot of money for charity givebacks. It’s not something I publicize, but I’m proud to be able to do it.
Greatest Lesson Learned....
It’s okay to make mistakes! Learn from them and move on. It’s also okay to change the direction of your business if that’s what you need to do to succeed.
Person, Place or Thing that inspires you
My late mother inspires me a great deal. So many things I do and decisions I make are as a result of her wisdom and guidance.
Words to Foster others....
Decide on a direction for your business early on. Write down your goals and revert back to them periodically as a reminder.
