Brief Description of your Business: Laynie Bug’s Bows (named after my daughter) originally started with hair accessories, head bands, bows and some clothing.

1. What is the best advice anyone has ever given you about business? Marketing is key. You need to put something into your business if you want to get something out of it. You want to stand out, be unique and have an original look for your business to be recognized.

2. How do you collaborate with other local businesses? I have my product located in a few stores in the area. They promote me by offering my product to their customers, I promote them back by sharing their page and telling others about them. I also do events on occasion and try to involve other local businesses so we can cross promote.

3. Give us a fun or unique fact about your business: When our daughter was born we called her “Laynie Bug”. When she started growing hair I thought I’d try out some fun things in her hair. So needless to say these things were called “Laynie Bug’s Bows”. Because they’re hers:)
