Two 'mompreneurs' share their secrets of success

Have you ever dreamed of starting your own business?

TODAY chatted with two succesful mompreneurs this morning -- women who found inspiration for their business ventures in motherhood. Cozy Friedman founded the "Cozy's Cuts for Kids" chain of kid-centric hair salons, and she also sells hair care products just for children. Josie Maran, a former model, wanted chic and all-natural makeup when she was pregnant with her daughter but couldn't find it -- so she created it.

The two talk with Kathie Lee and Hoda about how they turned an idea into an actual business, how they did research and how they got the money to launch their dream into reality.

What do you think? Are you inspired to become a mompreneur?
