What inspired you to start your own business?

It just evolved into what it is.

What were your biggest startup costs and considerations? 

Biggest start up cost was the crystals and gemstones, driftwood is free and Kokodama are relatively quick and inexpensive to make, Macrame is more time costly than expense outlay.
