We had the good fortune of connecting with Nancy Martinez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Nancy, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Honestly I never thought I would be where I am if it wasn’t for my kids. I started making hair bows when my daughter started going to school. I had so much material left over I decided to sell it and my business took off from there.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Every item I make is with lots of love, passion and dedication. Before I started my business I loved making personalized items as gifts for special occasions. I feel like something made is way more special and caring than something bought that can be replaced. When a customer receives their purchase from me. I want them to feel the love, passion and dedication with their purchase. From the cute packaging to seeing the item when they open it. What excites me the most is always looking to expand my business with many more new items and many more to come. It definitely took lots of practice, failure and consistency to get to where I am at. I’m proud of my husband and my kids for always helping me and being by my side. I learned to never give up and keep trying. With every special purchase you are making me better at what I do. Thank you everyone who has supported my business and to my future customer.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would take them to see the beautiful places that we have in Houston. My favorite places to go is booth photo creative rooms, walls of art, discovery green, and different stadiums our teams play. We would definitely try the best tacos in Houston.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to thank my husband and my little blessings for all the support they have giving me through out this journey. When I get extremely business no matter what day it is my husband is there willing to help. My kids for understanding sometimes mommy get busy and they help me in any way.
