Tell us about your business.

As with many things in life, a confluence of events occurred In 2009: I got married, bought a house and started Damn Good Doormats. When the new hubby & I went looking for our first doormat, he quipped that I should just make my own & so I did! He now works with me 2 days a week as we grow. I am expanding into wholesale markets & building my online fans.

What makes your business stand out?

I am the only place to go for designing a doormat! Customers have ideas that I can take & design WITH them.

What's the best business advice you've received?

Don't be shy!
