The Covid shutdown started almost a year ago.

For some parents, that means a full year of figuring out how to work while their children's schools are closed.

Tiffany Dangerfield quit her job at FedEx to stay at home with her three children, while her husband, James, kept his job working overnights at an assembly plant near their home in Huntsville, Alabama.

To make the most of her time at home, Dangerfield decided to focus on replacing her income with a side hustle.

Dangerfield's company, We Made It Soap Co, sells products primarily on the e-commerce website Etsy.

Check out this video to learn how Dangerfield was able to grow her brand.
