California based small business owner, Leann Pignone, is the Owner and Creator of Simply Charmed. A company that creates magnetic charms for wine glasses, or any beverage for that matter-- with dozens of themes. Wine charms from Simply Charmed "make get-togethers more fun!" says Leann.
Here is her story:
What inspired you to start this business? After moving to CA we developed a huge appreciation for wine. We spent many evenings at different wine events, or at home with friends trying wines and "doing research". When we discovered these crazy cool magnets, we knew exactly what to do with them!
What’s the best business advice you’ve ever received? I had no experience in starting a business, at times I didn't know what to do next. Someone told me, rather than hesitate because you are afraid of making a mistake, just keep moving forward-and you WILL make some mistakes but at least you are moving forward.
What is your most popular product? I would say it is our wine themed sets.
If there was one thing you could have people say about your company, what would it be? "I love it! That's really cool!" I'm fortunate that I get to hear this a lot, it's what keeps me going when the work seems larger than the rewards!
What product of yours are YOU most fond of and why? I still love the elegance and grace of the Swarovski Crystal sets. They work for any time or occasion.
Anything else you would like to add? We will be introducing our new website by the end of March--give us a "like" on Facebook (facebook.com/wineswithcharm) to find out about the promotions that will be going on along with launch of the new site!
