Kori Isabella-Ross had a shop-til-you-drop attitude toward shopping until she lost her job. She found herself in a tight spot with no money and three very active boys. So, Kori put that shopping attitude to work. She created a business, Miss Bella’s Boutique, that not only helped eliminate her need for work but helps put moms within her own community to work by selling their handmade goods, reports The Record Searchlight.
Since my real passion is in fashion and all things related, opening a boutique of my own would allow me to do what I love. From there, I began thinking of ways to help others who were in my predicament and had three ideas: shop, share and save. We offer new and used quality baby products at a great price, and support our local moms who sell their handmade products in our store.
What is your educational and career background? My parents have always owned their own business. I grew up learning to work hard for what you want. I opened my own preschool in 1998 till 2005 when I moved to Redding. I have some college, but mostly my work ethic comes from my parents.
