"A Good Problem To Have"
"A Good Problem To Have"
Founder & CEO-Sisters In Business, Publisher
You may have
heard of the expression "...that's a good problem to have."
Well, we would like to use this phrase to spin our editorial
article for this week.
As is the case
for many small businesses, Sisters In Business is a
woman-owned operation performing with a very skeletal crew
(one person, if you don't include my husband who was
recently drafted to proofread my newsletters).
Many new businesses are not in a position to hire employees,
and have staff for each functional area of business like that of a
larger business or corporation. However, the functions
of these areas are often times still very much needed.
you will find the owner and his or her faithful few partners
wearing several hats to accomplish all of the needed
This brings me to the
point of this article. Due to business growth, Sisters
In Business is experiencing an increase in work volume,
which translates into increased production schedules,
project management time, and customer service. We
definitely see this growth in business as a good thing...and
it is "a good problem to have". Nevertheless, one
that warrants attention.
We are contemplating whether to publish the
Sisters In Business eNewsletter on a biweekly basis.
Therefore, we thought we'd poll you for your thoughts about the
matter. Would you prefer
to receive the newsletter “weekly”, biweekly, or
Is one time better than the other? Or does it matter?
Let us hear from you.
Your feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Please feel free

Business is a "sisterly" networking firm that connects
both established and emerging women
in business and their communities, world-wide. The
Sisters In Business eNewsletter is
distributed to thousands of readers locally, nationally,
and globally. Thank you for your interest in this
Evelyn Bakers' Elegant Handkerchiefs
Evelyn Baker of Elegant Handkerchiefs is a native of
Chattanooga, TN. She is the oldest of three
siblings, and daughter
of G.W. Willis and the late Evelyn P.
Willis. While growing up Evelyn watched her mother
sew, and not knowing that she would
take on where her mother left off, Evelyn discovered
her talent of sewing.
While developing her talent over 10 years, she would
discover how older ladies carried handkerchiefs
embroidered with lace while going to church. She
would ask them from whom and where did they get their
handkerchiefs. Some responded that they had friends
who made them, or that they had purchased them at
One particular lady Evelyn consulted was Mrs. Gay
Crutcher. After seeing her beautiful handkerchiefs,
Evelyn began her search for fabric and lace to begin
her dream of making elegant handkerchiefs.
Evelyn started making all of her handkerchiefs by
hand. Later, purchasing a machine to speed up her
work, she changed from a plain satin fabric with 2
inches of lace to a polyester/jacquard fabric with 2 to
5 inches of designer lace. She achieved a look of
elegance for her customers' greater satisfaction.

prone to wander? Come and explore the answers to these
