Business Story

Why this business was started

In early October 2018, I woke up one morning and decided IT WAS TIME to turn a 2 year long dream into reality. I spent countless hours researching, building, and creating from scratch the logo name, design, content, and modern boutique site that launched just one month later on CYBER MONDAY! The main reason I wanted to do this is because I have always loved clothing, and shopping, but with my busy schedule, and living in the middle of nowhere, it's always difficult to get away for a full day and go shopping. I know many of us struggle with this. I love the uniqueness of boutiques, have admired many over the years, knew what I liked and disliked about my online experiences and I turned this into a place I would love to shop. Little did I know that what I wanted to do only part time would result in an average of $10K in sales each month with unlimited potential... if only I had more time.

The reason of selling this business

It grew too fast and I cannot keep up with the demand (a great problem to have). Even at only part time, I am seeing around $10K in sales per month. I do not want to let my loyal customers down and am looking for the right buyer to pickup where I will leave off. I am a Mom, Wife, Banker of 23 years, and direct sales top leader. It's time to focus on my family and the career I have poured 23 years into. If I could clone myself, I would be doing this full time. I am a dreamer and a doer. When I am passionate about something, I set my mind to it and I make it happen. This time, I set my mind to something and it went too well and rather than let my customers down, I want to find the right person to take over. It has not be an easy decision by any means because I know the potential.

What's involved in running this business

Excellent customer service. Social media interaction. Ask your customers what they want via social media, let them vote and bring it to life. Fulfill orders. Order from suppliers. Create trust with your customers, treat them well and they will return.
