Our community is comprised of some absolutely brilliant entrepreneurs and so we asked a few of them to tell us the story of how they came up with the ideas for their business.
Mollie Larsen | Content Creator & Entrepreneur
Each of my businesses came from the idea of me trying to solve the problems I had where I couldn’t find solutions elsewhere. For example, From Plants Beauty (fromplantsbeauty.com), came from an idea when I was pregnant and trying to find safe skincare products to use during that time. I couldn’t find 100% organic, plant-derived skincare products to use, so I created one myself. I knew other moms-to-be out there would have the same concerns, and if I could share my creations with them that could help them a lot during their pregnancy. For my brand new business “Mollie et Moi” Style subscription box, mollieetmoi.com, the idea came from spending less money on fashion and online shopping while not sacrificing your style. So, I created a box with five to seven chic and timeless style items offered at a lower price than shopping the pieces individually. All items included in the package are meant to last for all seasons, you can wear them today or five years later. It also releases each season, not every month so the customer can save money and ensure that all the items will be worth their spend. Read more>>

I felt so grateful for such an amazing support system and knew in my heart I wanted to do something to make the journey easier for other mothers diagnosed with cancer. Read more>>
