Since starting up PosePrints, I have become increasingly interested in how different businesses get started. It’s actually become a tiny obsession of mine…I can hardly walk by a storefront or browse a website without daydreaming about how it all started. (“HOW on Earth did they get that domain name?!” “Why did they chose pink for their logo?” “I know that font!”….and on and on and ON.)
I have a few smartypants friends who started up really unique businesses, and I’ve been dying to share them on our blog! Drumroll…
* Mateveza – Mateveza is an organic beer (cerveza) brewed with yerba mate (mate). Cerveza + Mate = Mateveza. Love it! My friend Jim came up with this ingenious idea a few years back, and now Mateveza can be found in stores and bars across the Western US. If you’re anyone resembling a beer-drinker, you must find it so you can taste it — it’s so good, and it has a kick of caffeine (NEED IT), too!
* Luxaby Baby: Momtrepreneur Molly Vernon just launched LuxabyBaby.com last month! It’s is an adorable online boutique that offers only the sweetest and finest of baby and children’s clothes and accessories. It’s a must-go-to spot for classic gifts. And she’s a pro when it comes to babies’ and children’s fashion, as she has two (very well dressed) girls of her own. They seriously dress better than I ever will.
* Starter Stylist: Adrienne, another dear friend, launched Starter Stylist this year. After studying interior design in New York and San Francisco, she realized that there is a definite niche for low-budget (but still-fabulous!) home design. She offers personalized consultations, tips and advice to renters, first-time home buyers, or anyone who wants to add style to their living space without spending a fortune. She has the best taste — not even kidding.
* FragranceUp.com: FragranceUp was started by a few “fragrance guys” who saw a need for a reputable online fragrance shop. A few years back, they started up the site, which offers discount (and genuine) perfume and colognes at some of the best prices on the internet. Bookmark it NOW if you ever buy or wear fragrance! Oh, and you get those cute little samples in every order, too. I love anything miniature.
We will definitely be back with more Entrepreneur write-ups. Til then, check these sites out! They’re PosePrints-approved.
