Thoughts become things: Entrepreneurial sisters in the spotlight for inspiration

In addition to the 160 stores that now carry their products, they have gone wholesale; they go to market nationally twice a year, and they have a booth at the Seaside yard sale twice a year.

Somehow they find time to travel, promoting their bracelets and message, and visit stores that carry them.

"They have done really well," said mom, Kim.

Their mother says her daughters have a bubbly energy and personalities that help in promoting their product.

However, she attributes their mature and outgoing personalities to being exposed to business ownership at such a young age and what it takes to succeed in that arena.

"Owning a business costs money and all its expenses; and being an entrepreneur takes sacrifice, and they are learning that," said Kim. "They are also learning through this that if you have an idea, don't be afraid to take it to the next level. Keep positive and learn lessons along the way. They are willing to double up on their school work to do this and have become role models for their peers."

And if the young entrepreneurs did not have enough to keep them busy, they also baby sit, help stuff backpacks for the Food For Thought project, and last year, Mackenzie taught herself to play guitar and she and her sister occasionally sing and perform at Baytowne as the Sisters of Soul. They also take their performances into the local nursing homes.
