I’m excited about the online entrepreneur community. There is so much support out there!

Angelyn Myers is a mom of 6 and substitute teacher that turned an idea into a product!

Where did the idea for your company come from?

My 4th oldest daughter insisted on using 3 towels after every bath! (one on her head, one around her shoulders, and one tied around her waist!) Yet, she would still complain of being to cold! One day, hoping to avoid the 3 towel routine, I had a light bulb moment! My daughter needs a towel with full body coverage! I searched online and couldn’t find anything, so I created my own!

What does your typical day look like and how do you make it productive?

My typical day starts by getting 6 kids up and off to school! Most days I work from my home office, when Im not substitute teaching. I am a list maker! I like to check those to do’s off my list!

How do you bring ideas to life?

Google, and Advice from other entrepreneurs!
