The SBDC began working with Michele Panek and her husband Shaun in early 2016. Between their first meeting with the SBDC Consultants and the ribbon cutting ceremony on Nov. 1, they had successfully completed a business plan, financial projections report, and a market research report. Since their grand opening, they have continued working with the SBDC staff, most recently by requesting a Web and SEO Review after launching their online store.

What sets your business apart?
The Fluffy Baby Boutique offers high-quality, unique items that you won't find anywhere else in the area. As the mother of two young daughters, I fully understand the glorious mess that is motherhood firsthand. After falling in love with cloth diapering, I felt called to find a way to make these and other fantastic products available to other moms in the Bradford area and to share my own experiences as a mother and my knowledge of parenting with other moms and soon to be moms.

How are you celebrating Small Business Saturday/Global Entrepreneurship week?
Global Entrepreneurship Week will be a week of celebration for me! A chance to share my story with family, friends, and customers, hoping to inspire others to follow their dreams and believe in themselves! Small Business Saturday will then be a fun day of fantastic sales and free gifts with qualifying purchases.
