Lice Happens

M.J. Eckert, RN, and Nancy Fields, co-founders of Lice Happens first visited the SBTDC in January 2012 for help with expanding their business of providing professional and certified mobile head-lice removal services. By the end of 2011, M.J., Nancy and a rapidly growing staff had deloused families from North Carolina all the way to Connecticut. Their 2011 sales totaled five times what they had generated the year they started in 2009. They recognized that their professionalism, commitment to quality, and passion had provided them with remarkable momentum, but they wanted more guidance in selecting the best business strategies for growth and with ensuring that they stayed on track as they grew.
