Great business ideas can come from anyone – even a nine-year-old. Moziah Bridges came up with his business idea at that age. Fond of wearing bow ties, he was not happy with what was out in the market for kids his age. Taking the sewing skills he got from his grandmother, he began to make his own bow ties. People started taking notice and soon a business was born.
Bridges founded Mo’s Bows in 2011 and created more bow ties to sell using scrap fabric. He started selling the ties on Facebook and later on opened his own store on the website Etsy. Today, his creations are also available for sale on the Mo’s Bows website and in boutiques in Tennessee, Texas, and South Carolina.
Bridges has also made an appearance in the television show Shark Tank where he pitched his idea to a panel of “sharks” to get them to invest in his idea.
