About the Winner

2009-11-06-blue-wonderBlue Wonder Cloth has sold environmentally friendly cleaning products for over 15 years – before it was “in” to be green! Wendy has been selling products through her website for nine of those years and is one of’s first customers. She did so well that she bought out the business’ original owner almost five years ago and hasn’t looked back since.

Wendy’s advice to aspiring entrepreneurs:

“Find a really good product. It must be something you really believe in, and it should fit the parameters of success – for example, is it easy to ship? Is it breakable? Whether you’re selling a service or a physical product, with the competition out there, you have to feel it’s going to be #1.”

Thank you to everyone that entered the contest – you have some fantastic stories and we can’t wait to learn more!
