Things you may not know about me...

Jennifer Tuton

When I was 25 I quit my job.

When I was 25 I started my first business called, "Jenniclips."

I never said “I can’t” or “I don’t have money to start a business.” I just did it.  I’d come across books about business that had harsh points of views about “most small businesses fail in the first 3 years,” and “you have to have a business plan in order to start a business.”  Bah.  I never let that sway me.  I just chose.  And I just started where I was.  I didn’t borrow money -- I just went to the art supplies store and bought little model paints.  I’d mix the colors in combinations I didn’t know was possible.  I painted on those bendy aluminum Goody clips.  The base coats were solid and I’d apply the design using toothpicks: hearts, stars, rainbows, leopard spots, Pucci, stripes, glitter!  Patience came to be my savior - to allow the paint to dry for a bit before diving into the design.

I began cold-calling my way into stores - guess being criticized as pushy lil kid turned out to work in my favor.   I also got a NYC rep, and began my journey of how-many-different-things-can-you-do-to-a-hairclip?  Headbands, ponytail holders, and of course bobby pins. 

What evolved next?  Stay tuned...
