Tell me your name and your business name
Brea and Halle Holmes, Designers of Sweet Dream Girlz is a head to toe brand of products designed by girls for girls
What does your business do?
We design, manufacture and sell our natural skincare, fun sneakers, sweet apparel and accessories via our webstore and to specialty stores nationwide. Our direct selling business, Spa Diva helps girls become entrepreneurs like us by using our program.
How did you get the original idea?
We wanted to have a spa themed sleep over and went to the store to find natural skincare products in fragrances that we liked. After that frustrating trip, we decided to manufacture our own. Then, we started to realize that the market was lacking in apparel, shoe and accessories that were sweet for girls.
We asked our friends if they had the same issues finding natural, scent appropriate products and got a resounding YES! Then our parents decided to invest in our idea.
Its our business and we actually get to design what girls like us really want.
Any disadvantages that you’ve faced?
Sure, large retailers are not readily open to trying a new brand. Since our product line crosses many different product categories, they often do know how to merchandise us in their stores.
When we started SPA DIVA, we stepped out of our comfort zone. We kept getting request from girls wanting to know how they could start a business like us. Then, we decided to put together a simple plan that provides them with a resource CD of things that we have learned, creating spa themed events using our natural skincare line.
Do your research on the market, vendors and marketing.
Even when it seems tough, do not give up.
