Time to rethink tools. Think pink. More and more women are picking up tools to get their do-it-yourself projects done. Tomboy Tools set out on a mission to empower women through education, providing tools to meet their needs, and offering a home based business opportunity.

Komen Cure for Breast Cancer, and you have a perfect package for women who are ready to take on life with a hammer.
Tomboy Tools is also unique in other ways. You will not find Tomboy Tools in your local hardware store. Tomboy Tools hosts in-home Tool Party’s.

Tomboy Tools was borne of the do-it -yourself fanaticism of three women. They got together regularly to work on their own DIY concepts and decided other women might want the same kind of support for their projects and ideas. Some women also need a nonthreatening environment in which to learn to use tools correctly.
In 2000, these women launched Tomboy Tools as a way to educate and empower women, provide quality tools, and allow women a unique opportunity to make money from home. Tomboy Tool’s slogan is simple: Learn Today; Teach Tomorrow; Build Forever. Their aim is to teach women today, who will be able to teach women of tomorrow, which will continue to empower women forever.
Tomboy Tools has been featured on HGTV, NBC Nightly News, and will be featured in the October 2007 issue of Better Homes and Gardens. It is a unique and growing home business opportunity for women.
