Backyard sales to Global Brand – Kelley Higney
Listen to the Episode
In this episode
In this episode of the Driven Female Entrepreneurs Podcast, I speak with Bug Bite Thing Founder & CEO, Kelley Higney.
Kelley started her business after her family found themselves continually bitten by mosquitoes when they moved to Florida. After searching different treatment options, Kelley found a simple, natural solution that wasn’t yet available in the States. When she tried it, and it worked instantly, she worked with the producer to bring the product to America and her new business was formed.
While she started her business from her own backyard, the effectiveness of her product, which she named The Bug Bite Thing, and a feature on Shark Tank meant her company grew rapidly. And is continuing to grow.
Listen to this episode to learn more about how to keep up with the growing needs of your business, how and when to structure your expanding business, and the importance of maintaining time for your own needs too.
