Believe in Miracles
by Donna Bliss
Even in the worst of times, I believed in miracles. . . . Why wouldn't I? My family and business are all tied together in one package as the result of a tiny little miracle named Jillian Nicole. And in the period of less than two years, I have moved from the unemployment line to a warp speed full-time business owner of My Miracle Baby.com Inc. The web site 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
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 acting as the catalyst, I began selling baby clothes on eBay with amazing success. Seeing the potentially large market for affordable baby clothing and accessories, and applying 20 years of 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 from my previous employer.
Now the company is a thriving business that allows me to work from my home most days. We offer more than 2,500 products--most of which I purchase as closeouts, overruns or from liquidators -- and sell at about 1/2 of the usual retail cost. That's because we are not out to make a fortune--just a living--doing what we love to do. And having one of the most loyal customer retention rates in the industry makes it all worthwhile!
