Business Story

Why this business was started

Being in and out of China, I noticed there were amazing beauty tools and accessories that just weren’t making it to the States. Most companies want to buy low and sell high but forget the value of investing in a high-quality product. That's how the Limelight Selfie Ring Light came about!

The reason of selling this business

I've built this brand for 3 years and it is now growing exponentially. I am confident that our tanning product is the BEST on the market. My goal was to get the product into a major retail chain and I've done that with Macy's. I am ready to focus on my product development business and offer GITL to a buyer who has the time to continue growing the brand. I only have about 5 hours per week to spend on it.

What's involved in running this business

I've primarily been selling product via Instagram so a big part of the business is finding and working with influencers to post about the product and then fulfilling the orders. I still fill the orders out of my home!

This business was founded: over 3 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 5 hours per week

    How to grow this business
