Even in the
worst of times, I believed in miracles. . . . Why wouldn't
I? My family and business are all tied together in one
neat package as the result of a tiny little miracle named
Jillian. And in the period of 6 years, I have moved in
warp speed from the unemployment line to the president
of my own company--My Miracle Baby.com, Inc. My
"invention" has become the subject of a book
about work-at-home Moms, more than a dozen news clips
as well as a 2-page accolade in Queens Parenting magazine.
The average finished basement has been transformed from
a start up with 50 products to a full service baby superstore.
Having emotionally survived infertility and several miscarriages,
topped by the loss of my job, I found strength and inspiration
in my long-awaited miracle baby, Jillian. Soon,
with a closet full of barely used infant clothes, I began
selling on eBay. Seeing the potentially large market for
affordable baby clothing and accessories, and applying
20 years of corporate marketing experience with my love
for the smell, touch and look of "everything baby"
I began this company on a small time budget of several
week's severance and a 401K from the previous employer.
Now the company is a thriving corporation that allows
me to work from my home most days. We offer more than
2,500 products--including baby basics, baby clothing,
personalized newborn gifts and presents for baby showers
and christenings. To meet the needs of the high end customer
for special occasions and pageants, we offer a baby boutique
that features top of the line fancy party dress and boys
suits and tuxedos. I've created a way to combine
my corporate marketing strategies and the need to be at
home for my daughter, while tackling the bills that just
keep on coming.
I now have created a community, a miracle baby family,
where you can see the most awe inspiring stories of the
tiniest survivors. We give our customers awards: kindest
customer, nicest customer, most polite customer, and their
photos and comments are posted on our favorite customers
page. We also have a baby photo contest where its
nearly impossible to pick the most adorable children.
I consider myself an inventor --or perhaps I've simply
reinvented myself. What I love most about seeing
my business prosper, is that it doesn't matter how busy
the site gets, I still make my own schedule and take my
6 year old to the bus every day. I have one of the most
loyal customer retention rates in the industry and I believe
its because customers know I am not only accessible and
truly care about their shopping experience but I'm not
out to get rich--just make an honest living doing what
I am crazy about.
