What's Your Ideal Mother's Day?
My ideal mother's day would be spending quality, device-free time with the family.
What's Your Favorite Mother's Day Memory?
My favorite memory is receiving homemade cards from the kids. I still have all of them saved through the years.
How many kiddos do you have?
I have 3 kids; Ashton-16, Noah 14 and Kate 10. Kate is the "K" in K&S Soapworks.
Lissy Rawl, Owner/Designer of Little Fish Boateke
Lissy is the creative maker behind Little Fish Boateke, based in beautiful Hilton Head Island, SC.
What inspired you to start Little Fish?
I was inspired by my interior design background. I had a bunch old fabric sample books and kept envisioning a line of jewelry with them some how. Also, I wanted to have a job where I could raise my children and wanted to show them you can do anything you put your mind to.
What is your favorite thing about being a small business owner?
I love that the sky’s the limit. There is no ceiling on how far I can grow or how creative I can get.
What are some of the challenges?
Wearing all of the hats from being a mom, a marketing director, sales rep, packaging expert, accountant, designer, sales rep, web designer, social media all while hand making the actual products we sell. It can get overwhelming. I always try to find the balance between work life and spending time with my family.
