Not that we need a reason to celebrate women, but March is Women's History Month, so I'm featuring six badass business women whose backstories are as inspiring as their products.
Abigail created Lemonade Pursuits with the mission to positively harness the mental energy that causes anxiety and to help others take care of their mental health. Lemonade Pursuits puzzles are designed to help you ease your mind and unwind. Every puzzle features artwork created by women all over the world. The puzzles are made in the USA from recycled materials and 10 percent of every dollar made supports female artists. $29.99, available on lemonadepuzzles.com.
Chelsey Brown’s Rental Style
As a NYC resident, Chelsey Brown started the popular blog City Chic Decor when she realized how little information there was on decorating and designing rented spaces. Her book, Rental Style, has pages of ideas on how to decorate and organize your home on a budget. If you're thinking about starting home decorating projects, check out her awesome inspiration and cute ideas in Rental Style. $19.39, available on Amazon, at Barnes & Noble and Target in both HardCover and Kindle versions.
Founders and sisters Linda and Susan started DryZzz when Linda’s daughter needed an idea for a school project that solves everyday problems. As Linda was going to bed after a shower, she had the idea to create a dual-sided towel and pillowcase. Alas, DryZzz was born. The towel side absorbs moisture so you can sleep with wet hair. Not only is this an incredibly comfy product, but a portion of the proceeds go to Sofia’s Hope to fund research for childhood cancer. Starting at $21.95, available on DryZzz.com and Amazon.
Founder Natalie created DoggieLawn as an indoor doggy potty solution to living in an apartment with dogs. It’s a natural place for your pet to relax or use the bathroom, especially now with colder temps and crazy storms. DoggieLawn is an environmentally-friendly subscription (or one-time purchase) that delivers a never-ending supply of fresh grass to your door. Great for indoors, small balconies, backyards and more. Starting at $26; available on DoggieLawn.com & Amazon.
Claire, founder, wanted a product to keep her family and home healthy and safe by fighting illnesses. That's when UVCare USA was born! UV Care USA’s UV-C is a pocket sanitizer that conveniently helps you stay germ-free. Just flip open the unit, press the “ON'' button for 5 seconds, and then it will quickly eliminate harmful germs, bacteria, viruses, and more! Starting at $42.99, available on theuvcare.com.
