Vanessa Bisorca loves her life as a mother of two teenage children.
She also loves fashion.
In 2015, the lifelong bargain hunter decided to sell some clothes from her closet to pocket extra cash and make room for new items.
Bisorca, 38, downloaded the Poshmark fashion e-commerce app and listed some clothing items. It made its first sale the same day.
A few months later, Bisorca was hit by a large medical bill that made her hopeless. Then she decided to turn her hobby into a real source of income.
Her husband, Cris Bisorca, 43, helped her apply for a business license, and they spent $ 500 expanding inventory beyond what was in her closet.
Now the fashion boutique Moda Me Couture makes more than six-digit numbers a year and is run exclusively by Bisorca and her family.
In this video you will learn more about Bisorca’s journey and the strategy she used to make her fashion label a reliable source of income.
