As many of you know my primary business is based on the Texas based tradition of Homecoming mums. I wanted to take a moment to talk about a brand new organization in the Homecoming industry called Mums Inc. Mums Inc. was founded in 2012 to promote the growth and unity within the Homecoming Mum business. I personally have been making homecoming mums for over 20 years and as a business for the last 13. During this time I encountered a lot of struggles trying to find vendors, supplies and figure my way through the trials of starting a business.
It became important to me as a small business to have and create valuable business relationships with other members of this industry. From this need Mums Inc. was born. In the beginning I started out by looking for any mum maker I could find on the internet. I emailed them, sent them messages on Facebook and low and behold, they responded. Now we have over 125 members on the roster. This includes some of the largest mum makers in Texas.
Together we are becoming a positive force in this industry. We have a very unique and exciting business. Our season runs generally from August to November and then its over. Everyone understands seasonal business but this business is not only seasonal its rooted in lots of long term tradition as well. We spend our time coming together for group purchases, educational events and just good ole fashion support from one another. I am proud to have founded this group and we are very excited about the path that we are on.
So with that said; Are you in the Homecoming Mum business? Are you looking to grow your business or learn new ideas? Please check out our website at http://www.mums-inc.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
