What started out as a personal journey for these two women has today turned into a multi-million dollar, nationwide, life altering company for families all across America. In 2005 these dynamic sisters quickly found themselves at the common crossroads of work and family. Shortly after the birth of their first children, they knew that their professional journey was about to take an exciting and unknown detour. Armed with a strong entrepreneurial background of creating their own path, this was an exciting time for both sisters.
Setting down their briefcases and picking up a burp cloth was the first step. Literally, starting something from nothing was the second. As new mothers, they found themselves wanting to be there for their families, but still having a desire to find something that would stir their souls creativity, fill their well socially and allow them to contribute to their homes financially. With numerous conversations, brainstorming sessions and prayer…they found it. Beginning hundreds of miles apart (in Georgia and Texas) both Britney and Ivy each found a niche in their communities for personalized products and gifts that celebrated the individual. Jumping into this new endeavor with one simple embroidery machine each and an incredible drive to create success on their own terms, these sisters started their personal home based businesses. A few months, and many extremely excited women later, Initials, Inc. was founded.
Launched officially as a Direct Selling Association party plan company in early 2005, Initials, Inc. is now represented by thousands of Independent Creative Partners throughout the United States. The Georgia based Initials, Inc. is a premier personalized handbag and accessories company in the Direct Selling Industry and is consistently experiencing phenomenal growth in both sales and recruiting. The core company message of ‘There’s only one you!’ is celebrated through amazing personalized products, top in category career path and an abundance of opportunity for all that seek more for themselves and their families!
Initials, Inc sent me my own personalized Resort Tote to review. I decided on the Black Diamond Resort Tote with the traditional monogram in Candy Green color (what can I say--I love green!) I didn't really study the dimensions on this bag closely before it was sent to me and I was honestly surprised at how big it was when I pulled it out of its shipping box! The dimensions are 24"W x 18"H x 10"D. I can fit SO much in this bag! This bag is going to be perfect for trips to the pool, park, or beach this summer. I'm sure I could fit at least 4 beach towels, plus snacks, drinks and more into this bag! I've also found that I can use it to hold my laptop, purse, diaper bag, with room for lots more when I plan on being gone all day. The bag is also very durable and I'm sure will last me for years! It's wonderful!
The only drawback to the bag is that it is spot-clean only. With kids, it seems like everything gets dirty in this house and I'm worried about how I'll keep this bag looking new. To be honest with you, if the bag gets dirty enough, I will probably try to wash it in the bathtub and hang it up to dry--I'll update you on how that goes when the time comes!
There are all kinds of great products you can get from Initials, Inc like blankets, bins, flip flops, and of course all kinds of bags that you can personalize to make uniquely your own!
