|Description:||Even in personal conversations, it’s clear that no one is more surprised about the entrepreneurial journey called Sassy Tails, than Kim Madden. With a background in not-for-profit and corporate leadership, Kim was enjoying the demands of a career and her young family. The corporate experience had offered Kim the opportunity to interact closely with the leadership of Fortune 500 companies like Dell, Kodak, BMW, and Target. But in the autumn of 2003, all of that changed.|
When faced with the personal challenge of what to do with her daughter’s hair, Kim and Heather, her daughter, launched a business quite by accident. Kim knew instinctively that she and Heather needed a solution they could BOTH agree on and it had to help them actually make it to school and work on time! Out of this quandary arose first the product and then the company known as Sassy Tails.
Today, Kim affectionately refers to plowing a long row with many challenges during her two-year journey—so much so she has awarded herself a master’s degree from the “University of Hard Knocks”. Having been included in national publications and as a Featured Lady on websites like Ladies Who Launch, Kim’s faith and passion for helping women and girls launch their own companies is the driving force behind her efforts.
Today Sassy Tails enjoys sales in more than 33 states and is branching out beyond the borders of the US. Kim energetically heads Sassy Tails while dedicating much effort and enthusiasm to helping other women launch their dreams into realistic business organizations. Her staff, including 9 year old Vice President, Heather Madden, consistently remark about the speed at which Kim moves but they just as faithfully share the enthusiasm that she has instilled in them.
