Can you actually build a company based on a recommendation from Oprah Winfrey? Well, yes you can!
On The Small Business Radio Show this week, Gloria L. Williams at Footnanny reveals how her brand exploded after a tweet from Oprah. She has been her pedicurist for many years and has since appeared on Oprah’s favorite things for 7 years in a row.
Her mother was from Montgomery, Alabama, and always helped sick people by giving them a good old fashioned “Rub Down! Southern Hospitality Style”. Gloria says she paid close attention to mother who would take her along to help sick neighbors. She mimicked her technique; “My mother believed that certain foods, oils, and teas played a crucial role in the overall recovery of a person’s ailments. Mom would mix luxurious creams, ointments and oils, which we would then use to do the “Old Fashioned Rub Down” on those in need of a loving touch.”
