I’m guessing that even if you do not live in Orange County,
California you’ve heard of Cookie Lee. Say the name and many women in the room
will nod, smile, and say, “Great jewelry.” While not for everyone, since some
people are not fond of the costume jeweled look (I’m not included in that group, since I love anything that sparkles!), Cookie Lee has definitely turned a small home based business into
a multi-million dollar empire.
This week, the Orange County Register ran an article about this
mother of two and I had no idea just how big she really is. I thought
she was a Southern California name, a way for some of the moms around here to make money on the side, but this woman has consultants around the country,
with women bringing in bonuses of $25,000 per month!
According to the article, Cookie began her business because her parents spent so much time working, leaving Cookie alone for hours on end. Not wanting to do this to her own children, Cookie began her business venture, and now has annual sales totaling over $125. This is phenomenal considering that
just six years ago her annual sales were $5 million.
