Q: How did you get started on The Heart Bandits?

I have been an entrepreneur my whole life. Every day I would think of a new business idea and with every situation I experienced in life, I would ask myself, “Could I make this into a business?”

In 2010, my boyfriend Marvin (now husband) proposed to me. My proposal was ok, but it wasn’t what I expected. I asked him why he proposed to me that way and he said that there weren’t really any resources out there to help him come up with a good idea.

A lightbulb went off and I just knew, THIS was the idea I had been waiting for.

I had already planned corporate events for a few years so I felt like I could easily transfer those skills to planning smaller events for 2 people. And I had the hustle. We wrote a business plan and went live with the website about a month later.
