From the time I was very young I was always filled with creativity and had always wanted to create my own business. From the time I was nine years old, I was making perfumes from flowers and water and selling them to family and neighbors. At the age of 11, I created a Carnival Event in my Apartments with my childhood friends that turned out to be a great success.
However, in College I was told to give up on my dreams of becoming a Entrepreneur and creating my own Business. I was told that I would not succeed and to just give up. Unfortunately, I listened to others and did not believe in myself. As Oprah Winfrey states in her book, The Path Made Clear, I betrayed myself by not listening to myself and what was in my heart.Today I am listening to what is in my heart and what I am and have always been passionate about all along.
There are several reasons why my business will benefit more than just myself. I want my business to be a inspiration to other Women and Entrepreneurs who may have went thru past struggles in life whether it may have been domestic abuse, sexual abuse, addiction, unfair treatment from others, poverty, having a disability, and so forth, that they can get through anything despite adversity and achieve their dreams and that they are worth it. My Business will serve the Community and My Boutique will give me the Platform to Raise Awareness To Women related issues. I also plan to donate proceeds from my Boutique to Non Profit Charities such as WEAVE (Women Escaping a Violent Enviornment).
It has been a journey to rediscovering my path and my childhood dream. The highs and lows of financial backing has been a challenge. With your funding you can help turn those dreams into a reality. The "creative little girl" in me still has big dreams and the “rediscovered adult me” is determined to make those dreams come true. With your help you are not only saying “yes” only to me but you are saying yes to Women has risen and will rise through adversity.
I really need to raise $30,000.00, but I am setting my goal at $7,000.00. With $7,000.000 I can purchase the vehicle, pay for painting supplies and work on remodeling the interior and purchase some inventory.
