Welcome to BOB!

Thank you for visiting the Band of Boutiquers brand new blog!  I am so excited to form this group, and am really looking forward to what I think will be an awesome collaboration!  

To give you a little background... I started my business, Much Ado About You, in November of 2007 after four successful years with a Direct Sales company.  In those six+ years I have learned, mostly by trial and error, some really important lessons about running a home-based business.  

This year I decided to really hit the Holiday Boutique circut, and realized that my favorite thing about doing boutiques, and probably the most valuable part, is networking with other business owners.  I love to encourage other women, share ideas, and hopefully spare someone else from making some of the same mistakes I have over the years.  

Thus the idea for this Band of Boutiquers was born!  I would love for us to meet quarterly in order to share business tips, plan events and workshops, and encourage one another.  I also thought it would be great for all of us to get together and talk about which boutiques we found to be very successful, which ones to maybe avoid next year, and perhaps plan a few of our own! 

Please join us for our inaugural meeting, Monday, February 1st at 8:00pm at 81 Wildflower Place in Ladera Ranch.

Any owner or employee of a home-grown business which is not associated with a Direct Sales Company and that produces a tangible, handmade product is invited to attend.  Please bring a dessert to share and samples or pictures of your products.  

I look forward to seeing you all on the 1st!
