Wife, mother, bad ass: Missy Livingston, the entrepreneurial genius behind kitchen lifestyle brand, Twisted Ware

Since she's based in Dallas, TX and we're in Los Angeles, we don't get to see Missy often enough. She's hilarious, she's smart, and, even though her company is just 5 years old, she's become one of our go-to friends for solid business advice.

In 2012, Missy started out selling cheeky dish towels on Etsy, and now her brand, Twisted Wares, is carried internationally at indie boutiques and big box stores...and they make a lot more than just dish towels. This woman is fearless (and funny! Did we mention that already?) and never hesitates to ask questions, making her a great role model for anyone, entrepreneur or not.

Gumball Poodle is thrilled to be pairing our silly socks and Twisted Wares' saucy kitchen goods in a mega contest for this month's #GirlBossGiveaway! The contest is happening now through June 30 on our Facebook page and while we encourage you to enter it ASAP, we also hope you'll take a minute to read our Five Fast Questions with Missy, founder and CEO of Twisted Wares!: 

  1. If you were a Gumball Poodle sock, which one would you be? The Bomb - of course!
  2. What’s at the top of your work playlist right now? Podcasts! A few of my favorites are: "How I Built This" and "My Favorite Murder."
  3. Any advice for future boss ladies and gentlemen? Never be afraid to ask questions. I could not be where I am today if I was afraid to ask.
  4. Who is another Boss Lady who influences and inspires you? I have a family friend, Nikki that built a successful business, eventually sold it, and is now retired and very active in some local foundations. Why? She always inspires me to think bigger!  
  5. Overrated/Underrated:
  • Legwarmers Overrated
  • Ring Pops  Underrated - I love me a ringpop!
  • Dragons  Overrated
