Getting an idea for a micro business is as simple as finding a need and creating a solution. This is exactly what Rachel Coker’s sister, Hannah, did!
A year and a half ago, Rachel and Hannah signed up for ball room dancing. The only problem was there was a dress code for the ball room dance class. The dress code required that all the girl dancers must wear a skirt that comes down to their knees. This was difficult because neither of them were able to find skirts that matched the dress code.
But one day Hannah came down from her room for church and was wearing a beautiful blue skirt. Rachel took notice and asked her where she bought it. Hannah told her that she made it on her sewing machine. Of course Rachel asked Hannah if she could make one her one in a different fabric and she did!
Watch the video of Rachel Coker below as she explains how this blossomed into a micro business for Hannah:
