What is your business?

It’s the coolest thing going.

You go to the website and use a password to access more than 7,500 greeting cards.

You pick out the perfect card and the exact words you want — you can even add a photo — then you click the mouse to send the order to a printing company.

The company prints your custom greeting card and sends it out through Canada Post, and it costs about $1 plus the stamp.

How did you get started?

A friend heard about this business, which is a U.S. company and the fifth-largest greeting-card group in North America.

She thought it was a great idea.

What do you like best about this business?

I like the flexibility of fitting it in around the things I want to do with my family.

What is your biggest challenge?

Keeping up with all of the opportunities and getting the word out about the service.

It’s so much better than sending an e-card, and you don’t have to go to card shops any more.

Expansion plans?

My business can expand wherever the company expands, and it’s already in Australia, England and Ireland.

I am only limited by my ability to think. The problem is, I have a hard time sleeping because I have so many ideas.
