Navigating a New Product Based Business with Mindy Keegan
Today we are talking to Mindy Keegan from Made for Mama Shop, who is running a pretty new product-based business and she’s doing one heck of a job! Mindy went from a corporate job to running a network marketing business with a part-time job to launching her own business in just a few short months!
Mindy Keegan is the owner of Made for Mama Shop-an online product shop, made up of hand-lettered goods she designs to bring more happiness into the hearts and homes of her customers. She left her cozy corporate job two years to stay home with her two spunky little boys, and little did she know she'd be starting an online shop with no experience in retail. She launched the shop in November of 2019 by making Christmas mugs with her dusty Cricut machine and is now branching out through sourcing, wholesale and other opportunities. She believes the sky's the limit and you are the maker of your destiny!
