Show Notes

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.

When launching something innovative, it's important to not only educate the market, but to address scepticism by proving your product works and giving a guarantee that removes any perceived risks. - Kelley Higney


In this value-packed episode you'll learn:

  • The importance of educating your market when launching an innovative product.
  • How to minimise the risk for new clients.
  • The biggest communication challenge linked to innovation.
  • The one word that will keep you from becoming overwhelmed.
  • The benefit of networking with people in a similar business to you.
  • How the energy around us can impact our daily lives in different ways.

...and so much more!

When you truly own who you are, what you do and what you want to achieve in your life, and share this openly, the support and opportunities comes to you. - Kelley Higney
