Karrie Mueller started in web-marketing in Orlando before moving to New York City to pursue a career working with clients like Johnnie Walker, Nintendo and Virgin. While she loved the corporate lifestyle, there was a part of her that wanted to create something of her own. With a little nudge from her future husband, Chris, she moved to Tampa
and opened up her own web marketing company, Webhead Interactive. Webhead offers clients top rankings on search engines, increased social media engagement and website design. It was through Webhead that Karrie discovered that the online cookie-cutter industry was comprised of companies with dated business practices and slow buying processes which offered a unique opportunity. With this information, she and Chris created online cookie-cutter store, Cheap Cookie Cutters, one of the leading cookie-cutter manufacturers in the US boasting over 5000 designs. Several years and two children later, a third opportunity presented itself to Karrie in the form a fairytale. After attending several princess-themed parties with hired characters, Karrie, a former-Disney World princess, saw the need for quality children’s entertainment in Tampa. With her background and a passion for all things Disney, she started Parties with Character, an experiential company that offers theme-park quality singing princesses for parties and events.
Karrie shares “we start these companies to work for ourselves, so that I can be home with my kids and we can travel anytime as a family. And we are always thinking of the next thing! Chris and I bring out the best in each other and it’s fun to start new companies. We’ve been lucky that most of them have been successful. I live by the quote: ‘A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds’ ~Francis Bacon.”
