Gabby Godwin of Gabby Bows appearing on QVC this month will be featured as one of the kidpreneurs in October. Gaddy began her entrepreneurial journey when she was 5 years old and is widely known for Gabby Bows. With the help and partnership of her mom Rozalynn, this entrepreneur began the business of Gabby Bows with she was a little one.
Not only is she the face of the business and CEO of Gabby Bows, but she also responds to customers by sending handwritten notes. Gabby contributes to the bow designs and she speaks publicly across the nation. She and her mother Rozalynn Goodwin are the creators of the first patented double-face, double-snap barrette known as GaBBY Bows.
Gabby Bows were created out of the need to keep girl’s barrettes in place. The barrettes have a 2 face design with teeth and craters that keep the hair in place so they don’t fall out. The key is to have two faces instead of one. This is a Godsend to parents who are constantly keeping track of barrettes.
Godwin was named 2015 South Carolina Young Entrepreneur of the Year (the youngest to ever receive this award) and the 2018 Black Enterprise Teenpreneur of the Year. She has also interviewed on national television shows such as The Today Show and The Real. This young and talented entrepreneur has also been featured in Jet.com, Madamnoire, The Harry Connick, Jr. Show and the Kiplinger, Washington, and The Magazine. From Meg Brunson.com.
“Everyone talks about how I’m so amazing. I want them to know that they can do similar things as me—and know that anything is possible.” ~ Gabby.

As the mother of a busy teen entrepreneur, Gabby’s mother Rozalynn gives Black Enterprise advice on supporting kids who are in business.
The mother and daughter duo launched the Mommy and Me Entrepreneurship Academy, giving parents and their children the opportunity to work collaboratively towards entrepreneurship through microfranchising the GaBBY Bows business. This business model was designed allowing parents and their children to take part in the business. The academy offers business training, mentorship, and community to those who chose to participate.
The product is packaged in a GaBBY Girls Boss starter kit includes 25 GaBBY Bows, name badges, branded t-shirts, and a letter from Gabby herself explaining the program and all of its perks. With the buy-in price at $99, Girl Bosses can make their investment back relatively fast with the bows selling at $5 a pack or 3 packs for $10. Information obtained from Black Enterprise.
