Business Start-up

Every business with product should consider consignment

Every business with product should consider consignment

Sure there are some challenges that come along with consignment, but those challenges can be well worth it if managed properly. Sales, increased awareness, and great strategic partnerships are all possible through consignment. Last summer, we reached out to a few local independent stores as a means to sell our chocolate (hot temperatures make shipping chocolate more expensive). Now, it’s a y... »

Smart Women Grant from Zions Bank

Smart Women Grant from Zions Bank

Back in June when we applied for a Smart Women Grant from Zions Bank, I remember thinking that it was worth the effort to apply, even if we didn’t get the grant. Outside of our time, the postage, and the basic office supplies it would require (a binder, tabs, etc.) there was no risk. It was a “no brainer” with the upside being the potential to win a grant for $3000. Now, I know that there is... »

Grand Opening–with Appreciation

Grand Opening–with Appreciation

For those of you who made it out to our Grand Opening, I want to express my sincerest gratitude.  For those who were with us in spirit (or following along via social media), your support means the world to us, too. It’s really touching how much support rosieMADE has received since we launched online last November. With your ongoing sales (that’s what a business needs in order to stay in busi... »

Making a living at making goods

We love to hear stories about women whose craft or skill changed their lives. We are currently collecting stories, to share with a national audience, from women who have turned a hobby into a business either by hand making or manufacturing goods. Tell us about the positive economic impact on you (or your family)–whether it has allowed you to be a stay-at-home mom, provided a steady second in... »

How To for Small Business: Implement a Private Label Program

How To for Small Business: Implement a Private Label Program

Major retailers have been using private label to their advantage for years. A private label product is one that is manufactured or provided by a supplier and labeled with another name or brand. For a retailer, it gives them the opportunity to have product created according to their specifications, create differentiation from its competitors, and reduce costs, among other things. There is no reason... »

Excited to be featured in The Angelos of Kappa Delta!

Excited to be featured in The Angelos of Kappa Delta!

For those of you who were involved in the Greek System in college, hopefully you had a similar experience to mine–a great adventure and experience. I pledged Kappa Delta my freshman year of college, and had the unique experience of being a founding member of our chapter at the University of Idaho. It was an experience filled with chaos, excitement, fun, friendship, and sisterly love–an... »

Networking rosieSTYLE

By now we’ve all heard the standard networking tips: Dress for success. Set goals. Practice your elevator speech, but don’t talk about yourself too much. Ask about the other person first and leave questions open-ended. Don’t expect to make a sale.   These are solid tips, but we are taking it a step farther and sharing our rosieSTYLE networking tips. Being a “rosie” means you... »

‘Lean in’ to this world?

A friend and fellow business woman just sent me a link to this video featuring Paul Tudor Jones, a billionaire trader and the founder of Tudor Investment Corporation and is valued at USD 3.3 billion by Forbes Magazine and ranked as the 107th richest American and 336th richest in the world (source: Wikipedia). While I am sure trading is a difficult job and it requires an intense level of dedicat... »

Use Meaningful Gifts to Create Lasting Business Relationships

  Nothing expresses gratitude for those who make our businesses possible like an unexpected token of appreciation. Here are some occasions and inspiration for gift giving in the business world. Employee Recognition Money doesn’t make everyone’s world go ‘round. Employers cannot incentivize all employees the same way. Some people won’t be impressed by a $50 bonus, but pampering product... »
