WHY YOU? WHY GLASSWRAPS? WHY ME?
As a single mother to amazing and active ~very active~ children, maintaining balance and the ability to grow GlassWraps without financial backing has become impossible! Right now…I am paralyzed!
This is where I need you Kickstarter fans! By backing my project, you will be giving me the tools I need to take GlassWraps from a happy accident being sewn by Grandma on her 1974 Elna Sewing machine, to being manufactured in a commercial production process managed by a team of experts. In other words, we would go from being set up to fulfill "onsie twosie" orders for family and friends to be set up to produce hundreds at a time for every bride, event planner, party host and beyond NATIONWIDE!
Right now, we have a few samples hanging around select country clubs near my hometown that are looking pretty, but without the orders pouring in that we had hoped for and need! It is now time to get our first of it's kind ~ BRAND NEW ~ stemware accessory out to the masses for us to take off. We need to go beyond the walls of my home, so that every wedding and event planner will be able to wrap their hands around GlassWraps ~ sure to be the newest and greatest innovative product to hit the industry this year! ...and we need YOU KICKSTARTER FAN'S TO LIGHT THE FUSE TO LAUNCH US UP UP UP AND AWAY!
With funding, GlassWraps would go from my dining room table to a modest office in my hometown. In addition, it would give me the ability to lease or purchase the commercial equipment needed to fulfill current and future orders, the supplies needed to do so (thread, fabric and accessories), a new marketing campaign that shows the endless benefits of GlassWraps (before and after shots ~ naked vs dressed glasses) and the staff to make it all happen with the opportunity to enroll my children in full time quality preschool (insert deep breath here) so I can grow the company as it so deserves and needs!
Your support would serve as the bridge I need to go from my home, out into the community, nationally and beyond! Your contribution, big or small, will help launch us as a staple in the wedding and event industry.
By supporting GlassWraps with our Naked Party Planner, The Corkscrew Collection or any of our Backer Packages, we can create an inventory to reach every end uses needs as follows:
Leave a lasting impression by transforming ordinary place settings into exciting masterpieces. Give your guests their very own, first of it's kind, souvenir GlassWraps with your logo, tagline, colors or themes for them to use and display. Perfect for:
~ Class Reunions
~ Award Ceremonies
~ Sporting Events and Tournaments
~ Company Functions and Holiday Parties
~ Premiers and Productions
~ Fund Raisers and Awareness Events
~ Anniversaries and Milestones
GlassWraps are the ultimate toasting glass guaranteed to get the cameras flashing, glasses clinking and your guests buzzing over their very own keepsake to remember your wedding far beyond your special day.
GlassWraps are removable, easy to apply, washable and reusable. GlassWraps are hand crafted with superb attention to detail in four way stretch quality fabric.
Each GlassWrap comes with an elegant "S" hook to attach the wrap to the rim of the class.
Risks and challenges
The greatest initial challenge would be the transition from being a full time mother to a 3 and 5 year old, while building GlassWraps (2010 ~ current) to fulfill the roles necessary to grow the company!
Here is where I can lean on those who are certain to offer enormous support. For starters, the amazing staff at Mount Calvary Preschool in my hometown who will all help me with this transition! I will find great comfort knowing my young children are in amazing hands (just shy of mom) so I can focus on the daily tasks at hand to ensure all the orders are fulfilled and delivered on time. In addition, I know the community at The Commons of Excelsior, footsteps from my front door, will be there to guide me through the transition process and assist with business needs. (http://www.thecommonswp.com/). With the support and tools I need the possibilities of where we can go are limitless... TAKE OFF!
The other challenge would be if we blow our goal out of the water and the orders pour in, not to sink, but to swim and stay afloat. Making sure we have the man (woman) power to pull it all off. Thankfully, our business consultant, Don Debelak, has already provided a plan "B" of a community of professional sewers minutes from home to fulfill any overflow so we can meet and exceed our delivery dates.
Managing the organization and structure to handle rapid business growth is a huge task for one person ~ me. So, I am pleased to report, I have been blessed with an amazing outpouring of experts in business development who are willing to jump on board, to help me with the process as we sail toward success as a team! GO TEAM GO!
Finally, we "creative types" are not always the best at managing the financial aspect of business growth. Fortunately, the team at Wells Fargo Excelsior has promised to assist with this and I will be appointed a personal financial adviser called a "Wealth Adviser." I certainly like the sounds of that!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
