2. What was the inspiration for your business?
I’ve always been very crafty. I collect things that motivate me to get creative. My business started as a hobbie, making earrings and other accessories for friends and family. The demand and positive response that I received from the pieces I created motivated me to develop something more official that would allow me to share my craft with the world. And Uniquelee-Yours was born.
3. How did you get it started?
I started on my dining room table, every night after I put my daughter to sleep, I would stay up till the wee hours of the night thinking of new designs and making earrings until I couldn’t keep my eyes open. I started the website, got my friends to model for me as I photographed, and before you know it, the word of mouth help me spread the Uniquelee-Yours name from Miami to Atlanta and from Washington DC to New Your City.
4. Did you quit your job to start your business?
No, I’m not quite there yet. This is still very new to me and I’m still on a very small scale compared to where I want to be and where I know this can go.
5. If yes, how did you manage financially? If no, how do you manage both?
Its definitely rough at times. I work 7 days a week. I’m always working and my mind is never at rest. I work my 9 to 5 during the week and on the weekends I’m showcasing at arts and craft shows from South Beach to West Palm Beach.
6. What are your top 3 business necessities?
Leather, social media, and my creativity
7. Is this your passion?
I’m not sure if I’m able to pin point one particular passion but I am VERY passionate about Uniquelee-Yours. I don’t think I was designed to have one passion because I love all that is artistic and creative.
8. How can we support your business?
Just getting the word out about Uniquelee-Yours, who we are, what we provide and of course purchasing the product. I feel as if everyone should own something that is “Uniquelee”-theirs.
9. Tell us which product you love the most and why?
Everytime I create a new pair of earrings, I fall in love all over again so it’s hard to pick just one. I would have to say, the entire line of earrings as a whole because those are my babies. That’s what I started designing first.
