You Say Goodbye and I Say Hello

Cypress, TX ~ Katy, TX ~ It’s always bittersweet to say goodbye to a partner due to life changes, but the upside is we also say hello to a wonderful new partner.

Sign Chick was  founded in late 2012 by Alison C. in Cypress, TX.  In the past four years she has built a successful yard sign rental business. During this time she was also a college professor and owned a second business, The College Scout.  As is often the case with focused women, both businesses became successful. As a result, it became necessary to choose one business on which to concentrate. Offering high school juniors & seniors comprehensive college consulting is where Alison’s heart has been since 2003 and accordingly, she resigned her position as a professor and sold Sign Chick to Lisha Lupher.  We will really miss Ali and wish her all the best in the future.

Lisha is a life-long Houstonian, as well as a wife and proud mother of three, two daughters and a son. Prior to becoming a stay at home mother, Lisha was a human resource manager at a family owned construction company. She held that position for five years. 

Lisha was first introduced to stork rentals a few years ago by a friend.  The idea of owning her own stork rental business was sparked, but it wasn’t until Sign Chick was for sale that the idea became a reality.  Lisha stated that she was able to walk into a thriving small business due to the time and effort that Alison spent building it and she is really enjoying being in business again after a 7-year absence.

Lisha has been at the helm a little more than a month and she is really enjoying feedback from her customers stating how much they enjoyed their storks or birthday signs.  Speaking with excited parents or grandparents on the phone or meeting them when she delivers a sign is the best part of her work day.  Lisha further shared that the joy the signs bring to her clients is contagious!

I asked Lisha what she has planned to continue the growth of Sign Chick.  She is currently advertising at Zapp Hall in Warrention for Antiques Week. She will soon participate in several fundraisers with the donation of a sign rental.  Two of the fundraisers include the North Cypress Hospital Project Pink 2016 and the AK Buddy Brown Classic benefiting Klein ISD.  Her gender neutral stork is currently on display at Freckles Boutique in Cypress to help celebrate their 10 year anniversary.

Lisha  is excited to announce the addition of a flamingo sign to her flock. She will also soon have on hand a line of adorable cupcake signs that can be customized for any occasion. Lisha is looking forward to the growth she will experience in the future and she is excited to continue to bring joy to her customers in the greater Cypress area, including Katy, Tomball, Waller, Hockley, Cy-Fair, Jersey Village, Copperfield.  She is thankful to the Lord for truly blessing her and her family.

If you are in greater Houston and you’d like to celebrate a special occasion in a unique and fun way, please give Lisha a call.  And please visit Sign Chick on facebook icon reduced , pinterest icon reduced and instagramicon to see Lisha’s current rentals.

We have another Stork Stories interview today.  I thought it would be interesting to our new partners to hear from someone who is a relatively new partner and is actively building a busy stork rental business. Alison has been a partner of the Stork Lady for 18 months.  She is the proud owner of Sign Chick in Northwest Houston, TX, including  Katy, Cypress, Tomball, Waller, Hockley, Cy-Fair, Jersey Village and Copperfield

Let’s hear from Alison:

Stork Lady (SL): Tell us a little about yourself and your  family. Does your family help with your business?

Alison:   I’m a wife, mother of two, college professor and “wanna be rock star!”  Sign Chick is truly a family affair;  I make the bundles, my husband Joe does a lot of the delivering, and my two crazy kiddos are always with us approving placement in the yard of each stork.

SL: Where are you located? What areas do you serve?

Alison:  I’m located in Cypress, TX and proudly serve Cypress, Tomball, Houston Heights and NW Houston, Texas.

SL: Why did you decide to start a home based business?

Alison: I wanted to supplement our family income while staying home with our two young kids.  I’m happy to share that stork rentals has brought in extra needed income. I’ve been able to pay some of our bills each month, as well as spend money on extras.  Additionally, it has given my family a new activity to do together.

SL: What made you decide on stork signs as your home business versus other opportunities?

Alison: We received a stork sign in our yard from a group of sweet friends when we brought our daughter, Brooke, home from the hospital. I was THRILLED to see this priceless gift as we rounded the corner and drove into our driveway! The keepsake bundle is still a prized possession, and my daughter loves showing it off to friends and family. The joy a stork brought us, and the limitless possibilities for a stork  business (having babies never goes out of style) convinced me that storks were definitely the best home based business for us.

SL: What advice would you give a new partner who is just starting out with their own stork rental business?

Alison: I would share several things with a new partner.  I’d begin by telling them they need to be patient with the time it takes to build a business. It doesn’t happen overnight, but it does pay off over time. They also need to be disciplined enough to work the business from home, which can sometimes be challenging due to the distractions of family.   However, the great thing about it is you can fit a stork rental business around your family’s schedule.  That’s one of the best things about it. I would also advise a new partner to spend a lot of time and effort on building a great website.  And, lastly, practice and be able to produce good quality bundles, deliver in a timely manner and be prepared and willing to create and deliver storks in a very short period of time. Many orders come the night before a new baby is discharged from the hospital, and new parents love to see that stork in the yard when they arrive home.

SL: Please tell us a little bit about your experience as a Stork Lady partner.

Alison: My experience has been awesome.  Beth has been a supportive & knowledgeable leader, and I’ve also found other Stork Lady partners who are encouraging and willing to share helpful tips and information.

Thanks, Alison!

gift from the stork

We have another fun Stork Stories interview today. Sarah Jones has been a partner of the Stork Lady since July 2011. She is the proud owner of Gift From the Stork in The Woodlands, Texas.  She is married to Cody, who often  helps her deliver and pick up her signs. They have two daughters, Madison (6) and Carley (4).  Sarah also serves Conroe, Montgomery, Spring and Magnolia, TX.

Let’s hear from Sarah:

Stork Lady (SL): Why did you decide to start a home based business?

Sarah:  I wanted to earn income I could specifically use to pay for extras for my daughters.  And I’ve been able to pay for their dance classes, as well as their Spanish lessons.  However, the income from stork rentals has grown to help cover clothing expenses, vacations and the occasional payment of normal household bills.

SL: What made you decide on the rental of stork signs as your home business versus other opportunities?

Sarah: The idea crossed my mind after I rented a stork for my sister in Dallas. I decided I could do this. I began to research it online and the rest is history.  I chose stork rentals for a couple of reasons. First, there is no happier time in your life than welcoming a child into the world. I love having a father call to surprise his wife or a first time grandmother crying while telling me all about the baby.  It feels so special to play a small role in their happiness.  And I also chose stork rentals because it’s a super flexible business that I can work around my family’s schedule.  It doesn’t get in the way of our family life and it’s just perfect for me.

SL: What made you choose Stork Lady signs over the other stork signs that are available?

Sarah: I thought they were the best. I loved the design, but I also loved how well made they are. The quality is excellent. I also liked the fact there are partners nationwide and we have a presence nationally, and all of that works to help my business grow.

SL: What different kinds of marketing have worked for you?

Sarah: My Facebook page has generated a lot of exposure for my business. I highly recommend all partners have a business Facebook page and keep it active and updated. I’ve also had success with Google Adwords and dropping off marketing materials to OBGYN offices.

SL: What advice would you give someone who is just starting a stork rental business?

Sarah: Be patient and keep working your business. Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither will your stork rental business. And on the rare occasion someone is rude to you just kill them with kindness.

What’s your most memorable or rewarding stork rental experience?

Sarah: My most memorable rental is the time both grandmothers of a newborn separately ordered a stork for the mother. They ended up having a good laugh and split the bill.

The most rewarding thing to me is all about putting a smile on the new mom’s face as they drive up from the hospital with their baby and see the stork sign in their yard. I take pleasure in that every single time I set out a stork.

Thanks Sarah!

Stork Stories with Janice Wilke of Front Yard Friends ~ Chesapeake, Virginia ~ Stork Yard Sign Birth Announcements

We’re beginning the New Year with a fun Stork Stories interview.  Janice Wilke is the proud owner of Front Yard Friends in Chesapeake, VA. Janice really knows her stuff and there isn’t anything she hasn’t experienced after 11 years in the lawn greetings business! She and her family have worked very hard to build a busy and successful business. Front Yard Friends serves the greater Tidewater area of Virginia, which includes Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Newport News and Hampton Virginia as well as Moyock, North Carolina.

Let’s hear from Janice:

Stork Lady (SL):  Front Yard Friends has been in operation since 2003 and is truly a family affair. Tell us a little about your family.

Janice: My son & daughter began to work with me in FYF when they were in high school. They’ve since graduated from college and are still active in the business. My son recently married and his wife came on board when they were dating.  My mom also lives with us and has helped in more ways than I can count.

SL: Why did you decide to start a home based business?

Janice: It allowed me the flexibility to be with my children when they needed me, and I truly enjoy working for myself.   

SL: What made you decide on stork signs & other lawn greetings as your home business versus other opportunities?

Janice: My husband rented a stork for me when our babies were born. He later surprised me with a lawn greeting for my birthday. I had been on the receiving end of all the fun and wanted to offer it to others to enjoy.

SL: What do you like most about being in this business? What is most rewarding?

Janice: Making people happy by having a small part in a special day or occasion. I especially love to get phone calls from satisfied customers thanking us for making them feel special.

Being successful in my own business is very satisfying. Providing a service that leaves a positive impact on people is its own reward.  

SL: What made you choose the Stork Lady opportunity over the other stork signs that are available?

Janice: At first we tried designing our own stork. It worked for a while, but we couldn’t seem to capture the professionalism and polish that Stork Lady brings to our business. Before we became a partner we had been admiring the Stork Lady signs from afar. When we decided to up our game, getting our signs from Stork Lady  was an easy decision to make.

SL: What different kinds of marketing have worked for you?

Janice: Twenty years ago there were newspaper ads and yellow page ads. But after a while we realized our best advertising is our displays because having them seen in yards all over the Tidewater area creates great word of mouth advertising. We no longer pay to advertise. However, having a top-ranked website is key to a successful business in today’s world.

SL: How have you used the income generated in your business?  

Janice: It has helped our children’s educations and in general has improved the quality of our lives.  We have been very blessed in this business.

SL: What personal qualities does a person need to be successful in this business?

Janice: A person has to be extremely self-motivated.

SL: What advice would you give someone who is looking for an affordable home business opportunity?

Janice: Do your homework! Any home based business will require time and hard work to become established and successful. And it may sound easier than it will be. Fortunately, in this business there is plenty of help out there from people more than willing to help. That’s not always true in other businesses. Going with the Stork Lady opportunity will help you get started and on the right track.  Front Yard Friends has branched out in many ways in the past 11 years. We provide great deals on Lawn Greeting start up packages to help people trying to break into the business. We offer a lot of variety, as well as many different themes to celebrate all occasions. Please check out our Front Yard Friends website for examples of some of the displays we offer.  However, our website gallery isn’t complete. Be sure to contact us for a complete listing. And be sure to check out the website of our second company,  Sweet-Greetings. The signs we offer through Sweet-Greetings are colorful, fun and popular! The gallery on our Sweet-Greetings website is complete.

Lone Star Storks
Stork Sign Rental Service
Greater Dallas, TX area
214-632-8001

Last week we introduced new partners Matt & Lindsey of the greater Dallas, TX area.  They are Lone Star Storks.   Lindsey shared some exciting news with me today about their business.  I’d like to share it with everyone because I think it’s a perfect example of how great things can happen for your business if you just ask for what you want.

Not long after Matt ordered their sign package he began to look into ways to promote Lone Star Storks.  He picked up the phone and called a local Babies R Us store.  He spoke to a lady in the office and told her he was interested in somehow working with BRUS to promote his new stork rental business.  The lady told him that the local Dallas / Fort Worth Babies R Us would soon be conducting expos in each of their four locations to kick off the new ISIS parenting classes they are starting in Babies R Us stores.  She invited Matt & Linsdey to participate in each of the expos to promote their business.

Lindsey put together a great-looking booth, complete with a banner that matches their website,  a stork sign with a bundle and a sibling sign example.   Two of the expos have already taken place and two more will follow in the next few weeks.  At each expo Lindsey has been able to meet and visit with lots of people to introduce them to her new stork rental service.  When the expo  is over she leaves postcards at the store to be given to customers who are interested.

Lindsey is unsure if the BRUS expos are being held nationwide, but she does believe they are also being held in Atlanta.  She isn’t sure what the outcome of an inquiry would be in any city, but it would be worth asking. She further clarified that she and Matt don’t have a relationship with BRUS in any other capacity and the expos will not be ongoing.  However,  they were able to develop a relationship with the lady who is organizing the local expos and as a result, they’ve received some really terrific exposure for their business.

It worked out wonderfully for their business because Matt wasn’t shy about picking up the phone to ask for what he wanted.  Way to go Matt & Lindsey! It’s going to be fun watching Lone Star Storks grow.
