Denim & Daisy
Hello! My name is Andra and this is my family! Meet Alex, my best friend and husband, and our four kids Rueger, Hawken, Sedgley, and Bristlen. YES, we ALL have naturally curly hair! I started Denim & Daisy to help get our family out of a financial crisis. It all started back in 2018. My husband and I had just started our second company called OTMO. Alex and one of his co-workers came up with an idea that would revolutionize the automotive warranty industry. Car warranties suck, and with 15 years’ experience in the automotive industry, Alex decided that it was time for a change. So, Alex and I took our life savings and started OTMO - the better alternative to car warranties. It was a cost sharing plan, similar to cost sharing health care plans, only for your car! Long story short, the Insurance Department of the State of Utah made us close our doors very abruptly and prematurely due to unfortunate miscommunication and left us with $250,000 of debt that we took on ourselves. Alex and I could have taken the easy way out and filed for bankruptcy, but that plan didn’t feel right to either of us. So, we got to work! We sold all 4 of our rental properties, our first business, and started two new businesses. Alex started renting out camping trailers and ATVs and I got out my sewing machine and started sewing and selling scrunchies! We currently own Utah Side-by-Side Rental, Denim & Daisy, and OTMO in addition to Alex’s full time job as a mechanic and both of us being full time parents! Life is crazy, but it’s been quite the adventure. Don’t worry, OTMO is back up and running! For more information visit Otmo.com for what happened and the latest info!
