Cordelia Blake started Oh Goody! Party Favors in 2013 after years of frustration trying to find party favors to hand out at her own kids parties that were not "junky." Like many entrepreneurs she wanted to start a business that was product focused, rather than service oriented, so that she could have more flexibility to spend time with her children while providing a better opportunity for growth. Hearing the frustration of other parents she came up with the idea of an online store where parents can buy high-quality toys to give out as party favors-no more bags of junk. Cordelia was no stranger to the web as she owned her own Web Design company for 4 years and worked in marketing and sales at AchooAllergy.com. We'll talk with Cordelia about how she got started, the lessons learned in starting your own online storefront, and how she is managing the daily operation while working to balance growth with her goal of family time.
