Updated: Jun 22, 2018
It’s Friday and time for another Stork Stories post. Our Stork Stories feature is a fun series of interviews with our Partners who share why they’ve chosen this work from home business opportunity, the methods they use for success and how the extra income earned has benefited their life and their family. I always look so forward to hearing what our partners have to say. It’s great to be able to learn from each other.
Today we’re hearing from Teri Crane of Storks By The Yard in Norcross, GA. Teri is a single mom of two children who are 21-years-old and 15-years-old. She has been a Stork Lady Partner for 13 years and provides stork sign rentals in the Northeast Atlanta area, including Gwinnett County. Teri aims to please, and is willing to drive as far as 55 miles one way to help her customers celebrate the birth of a baby. At distances greater than 30 miles a delivery charge is incurred, but she doesn’t want to disappoint anyone who wants rent a stork sign.
Stork Lady (SL): Teri, why did you decide to start a home based business?
Teri: I wanted some extra spending money, and I didn’t want to have to ask my husband for it.
SL: What made you decide on stork signs as your home business?
Teri: I saw a feature story in our newspaper about a lady on the other side of Atlanta who was renting the Stork Lady signs. I thought it would be a fun business and contacted her to ask about how she got started.
SL: What different kinds of marketing have worked for you?
Teri: My website and the internet are the best marketing tools I have. Leaving a sign with my company name, phone number and website near each stork I set up in a yard is a close second.
SL: How has being in this business affected your life?
Teri: It has had a very positive effect on my life. It’s such a boost to my self- esteem knowing I can run this business, especially for this long!

SL: What personal qualities does someone need to be successful in this business?
Teri: I think you should have a happy personality to enjoy this business and do well in it.
SL: How have you used the extra income earned in your business?
Teri: I’ve used the income made in this business to cover payments on two cars and for personal spending.
SL: What advice do you have for someone just starting out?
Teri: I would advise a new Partner to have a good website and list your service with as many online directories as you can.
SL: How many hours a week do you put into your business?
Teri: I spend about 16-20 hours per week. It depends on the number of calls. One thing I do enjoy about the stork sign business is it’s flexible and I can work it around my life.
SL: What is your most memorable Stork rental experience?
Teri: The funniest rentals have been when another stork business is called out to the same house. It doesn’t happen often, but once I was called out for twins and another company had been called out as well. The new parents had four storks in their yard!
