The Rise of Pink Lemon
How did Pink Lemon come to be?
I have always been a DIY’er, loved design and making things pretty and it goes back about 15 years when I bought my first home, had a tiny budget, and made most of the things inside decor wise. I always made things for people I knew and eventually I was being asked to make things for those I didn’t know! Pink Lemon was given an official identity in 2016 where is was a side hustle. I stepped away from my corporate job after a decade to be a stay at home Mom however dived into Pink Lemon right away! It is a FULL time job now.
How did you initially fund Pink Lemon – and how long was it your side hustle?
Initially, I used some of my savings and anytime there was profit it went directly back into the business. It was my side hustle for about 2 years before it became full time.
