Stay-at-home moms and dads - or anyone who wants to start up their own business - may be inspired by Alli Webb.
She started The Drybar, a place where people can get their hair blown out. It's not a hair salon because customers don't get a haircut or a color. They just get a shampoo and their hair blow dried and styled.
It all started a few years ago when former hair stylist, Alli Webb, a stay-at-home mom, had a great idea - provide blow outs to women who need a little pick-me-up.
"So I started a little mobile blow dry business where I was basically going around to all my friends and mommy friends and doing blow outs at their homes. But my little business got very busy, very fast," said Webb.
So she went to her brother, who is now her business partner, and told him she wanted to open up a place where women could come to get blow outs.
It took a while, but after he came on board, he lent her the money to open their first store.
Now, three years later, there are 26 Drybars across the country.
Webb has advice for anyone who wants to start their own business. Start with a great idea.
"If there's something that you want that doesn't exist and you feel passionate about, go for it," said Webb.
Next piece of advice, don't do it alone.
"I think surrounding yourself with people who are good at what you're not and figuring that out early. As sure as I'm sitting here, we wouldn't have the success we're having if it wasn't for all of us and everybody contributing," said Webb.
