Headband company Hart's & Pearls was created to inspire
"I was 28 years-old and got pregnant out of wedlock," Remembers Desiree Burgess. "Through a chain of events, I finally decided that I would step out on faith and have the baby and just trust that everything was going to be ok."
"I just started making headbands for her, then I started to notice that when we went out of the house people would ask where did you get that headband? The first few times I thought it was kind of humorous because I didn't think it was that great."
But Burgess started making more headbands on her sister's kitchen table. A few years later, Burgess's one-time headband hobby has turned into a booming business called, Harts and Pearls.
She now has 10 people working for her company. The headbands have become so popular she's having a hard time wrapping her own head around her success.
Her life may not have taken the turns she anticipated, but Desiree Burgess can't imagine a better destination. “It got me to this place where I was like wow, I can start dreaming big."
