Welcome! Please excuse the mess. We are still getting it all together. Literally! We are so pleased that you have taken the time to stop by. We still have some work to do, but we look forward to hearing from you.
Band of Barbies was created by two fabulous gals, who are entrepreneurs, looking to help other entrepreneurs get exposure, more visibility and create lasting partnerships. We feel that in this day and age there is a pride of ownership in owning your own business, and it can be difficult in these harsh economic times competing against big box stores. Being an entrepreneur means you get very little sleep, you eat in the car, running down the hall, or in a corner (if you are lucky!), you multitask like super woman on steroids (or ritalin, which ever works best for you)running payroll, signing checks, deploying a 1000 questions by the new employee, answering the phone, and emails, all while signing the box that the polite brown uniformed man is eagerly shoving in your face to sign for the damn package! Yes it can be challenging, and frustrating particularly when the ungrateful customer walks through your door explaining that your newly arrived package, from the brown uniformed man, is product that can be found at Marshall's! WTF!
We respect and honor your lack of sleep and mad multitasking skills. It takes courage, will power, audacity, and a whole lot of moxie to weed your way to the top of being BOSS. Especially when your friends say, "Oh it must be so nice to come and go as you please, and do what ever you want because your the boss"!! I will remember these remarkable, simpleminded words when Im dealing with the ignorant Marshall's woman and unclogging the toilet while my roof is collapsing in because the idiot next store decided to power wash his dry wall. Its good to be BOSS!
So this ladies is for you, and us. There is something to be said for those of us who can pull our sleeves up and find pleasure and gratification in the all american dream. So have a seat, grab a martini, and join the cause!
Leave us your thoughts and comments. As we build our community we will feature your business's, promote your product, offer advertising, and post about how fabulous as cotton candy you are!
