During our 6th Annual 2016 International Pretty Brown Girl Day on February 25, 2017, we seek to encourage girls to think of their futures by seeing GIRLprenuers in their communities who look like them. This is the perfect day to highlight women and girls of color who are leaving a footprint for other pretty brown girls to walk in. We would like to feature mother-daughter GIRLpreneurs, Gabrielle & Rozalynn Goodwin, Founders of GaBBY Bows!
About GaBBY Bows
9-year-old, Gabrielle Goodwin, was just five-years-old when she started asking her mom Rozalynn, to make a barrette that really worked. The mother-daughter duo worked on their idea for two years and eventually developed GaBBY Bows, a double-sided barrette that doesn't slip out of the hair, no matter the type or the length. They started the company when Gabrielle was seven-years-old.
Gabrielle is the self-proclaimed President and CEO, handling inventory, serving as the lead saleswoman at trade shows, speaking to community groups and schools, writing thank you cards to customers who order online, and helping with sales taxes. She also hosts GaBBY Play Dates to teach girls in children's shelters about entrepreneurship.
GaBBY Bows comes in array of bright colors and shapes. Through hard work and diligence, GaBBY Bows is now sold in 43 States and 7 countries. We congratulate this mother-daughter duo on their tremendous success! For more information on GaBBY Bows, click here!
