Mommy Makes Money With Baby Blankets

It’s the dream of so many moms to start a home business and get rich! A Texas woman is on her way thanks to one of those ideas that makes you say, “Why didn’t I think of that?”

It all started when Amy Long realized she didn’t have enough hands. “I was actually walking through a parking lot with a child on either side and my baby in a sling and my blanket fell off,” said Long.

So she solved the problem by creating a blanket with clips on each corner. One trip to the store and she knew she was on to something.

“I was stopped by four separate people at one time who said, ‘Where did you get that?’ ‘I made it.’ ‘Will you make one for me?’” Long said.

After a lot of experimenting, the Secure2Me baby blanket was born.

“We went through a lot of different shapes and sizes,” said Long.

Mothers from as far away as Australia and England started snapping them up off Long’s web site.

Long folds, packs, and ships the blankets from her kitchen counter. She said anyone can be a successful inventor, but you have to have passion to go with your great idea. “It has to keep you up at night. It has to drive you. It has to be the thing that you believe in,” she said.

Now, what started as one mother’s simple solution has believers of all ages around the world. (More women enterpreneurs - DressMeNow.Com Success Story)
