A lot has gone on since I last posted. Maybe you already know this, and it could be what brought you here, but the story about my business went viral and was featured in Black Enterprise
, then picked up by Ebony Magazine
, Because of Them We Can
and countless others. You can click the names above to read the full articles. I've also done several interviews with more to come. One of those interviews can be seen on my homepage where NowThisMedia flew from New York to Houston where I live to get my story. It has been a chain reaction not only in the United States, but in several other countries as well. People have reached out from Trinidad and Tobago, the UK, Canada, Ethiopia, New Zealand, Haiti, Ghana, Jamaica, and many other countries. I never would have expected this, but I'm so grateful.
Very early on, I was able to hit my 100th order and it felt so good. I can still remember my 1st order and how that felt. I'm well beyond that point now, but I will never forget the entire process of this journey. It has opened my eyes to so much. Now, I'm reaching for much bigger goals and I can't believe all of the great things that are happening and still to come. This month I attended my 1st real business meeting. I met with a huge retail chain about my brand being placed in their stores. This is so surreal! I've got work to do and I'm already working in that direction. I felt like a legit business woman during that meeting. Well, I guess I am...Lol. My brain is still adjusting, I guess it takes some getting used to.
I want to thank everyone that has supported me and my business (especially my mother)! As I have shared, being a teen-entrepreneur is not easy, but so rewarding. At times I wanted to give up because there is a lot to learn, but I realized that will be the case with anything I do in life. My business is like a training ground. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to learn all that I am at the age of 16. Mom says its a marathon not a sprint; so I'm happy to learn at my own pace. I wholeheartedly thank those who have supported me because it pushes me to make something great out of this business and my life. Without so much love and support, it wouldn't be possible.
Sometimes words are not enough to express gratitude so I decided to give a discount that can be used until June 30th. For the next 10 days use Discount Code: THANKFUL19 to take 25% off your entire order! I hope you understand how much your support means to me. We are working on international shipping, which will be available very soon. Please hang in there. So many of you have asked and I promise it is coming. Thank you so much for your patience.
