Contestant's Case to Win
This is based on the number of votes received.
Moms turned entrepreneurs, Michele Sommer and Yvette Yelardy, have created a thoroughly modern line of handbags and totes featuring exclusive luxury oilcloth textiles of their own design.
Founded in 2006, their MY (M for Michele, Y for Yvette) collection was rapidly embraced by women across the nation. Their line is now sold in 100 plus boutiques across the country, Australia and Canada as well as online at MYoilcloth.com . Their bags are stylish, functional and indestructible just like the busy moms who wear them.
Michele and Yvette encourage other mom-entrepreneurs by sharing their experiences through consultations and mentorships. They reach out to the entrepreneurial community by speaking at universities and participating in panel discussions geared to promoting start up businesses.
With five kids under 12 between their two families they are managing to balance home and a successful burgeoning business. Theyâ€™re already winners.
