This week’s show is filled with inspiring home-based success stories.
In this episode of StartupNation Radio, host Rich Sloan interviews winners from the 2007 Home-Based 100 competition. First stop is the kitchen (and world headquarters) of Sarika Singh, founder of Mattise & Jacks, and winner of the StartupNation Home-Based 100 Yummiest category. She’s positioned herself as “the Betty Crocker of a new generation,” and explains how she got her start. Singh provides tips for any entrepreneur with a great recipe and a desire to start it up. She now wholesales to Whole Foods among others.
Next StartupNation Radio pays a visit to Debra Cohen, founder of Home Remedies, which connects people to the best home fix-it service providers in local markets around the country. She has over 400 people who’ve bought her kit and replicated her business concept. That’s what earned her a Top Ten position in the Home-Based 100 Best Financial Performer category. She is thriving in her role as home-based mom, wife and business tycoon.
Rod Call is the last feature in this week’s show. He’s winner of the Home-Based 100 Most Slacker-Friendly category. He created a brand for clothing and gear called, Snoloha, which brings together images of snow and sun and promotes the easy-going lifestyle. Yes, he worships Jimmy Buffet. But his respect for the Caribbean entrepreneur goes beyond his slacker-friendly hit songs and into the businessman behind the mega success that’s made Buffet a household name.
