Meet Laura Jorden-Krolczyk of Monogram Markets in Northwest

Today we’d like to introduce you to Laura Jorden-Krolczyk.

Laura, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I decided to start my own business after helping others succeed with their own companies. This was this best decision I ever made. The hours are long, but well worth the dream and hard work it takes to be successful. I get to not only run my own business, but love what I do every day.

Has it been a smooth road?
It’s scary taking the first step to start your own company, but so worth it! My parents owned their own business and the struggles were real growing up. My Dad has given me great advice and stood behind me always telling me you can do anything you put your mind to.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Monogram Markets story. Tell us more about the business.
My company is Monogram Markets and I specialize in custom embroidery, monogramming, digitizing, logos, and design. I have a large business clientele helping with logo embroidery and design. I also offer monogramming on all types of items. My customers can also provide their own items for monogramming.

I love to bring vintage items back to life by adding embroidery or a custom design.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
I started my business in 2012 and each year it keeps growing. I feel extremely blessed and thank my customers every day for giving me a chance.
