About

Beyond My Dreams

I think the economy forced me to really dig deep and examine what I could do to try and make a living. It's really rough for a degreed person to find meaningful work. And when I say degreed, I don't mean advanced degreed. I have a Marketing degree from Howard University (undergrad). I've always been a great salesperson. I mean the type of salesperson who was born with it. So, I've always sought marketing & sales related jobs. But they are sparse in St. Louis. I lived on the East Coast for 25 years and returned home to be closer to family and to raise my 2 sons. I have survived with the help of friends & family and for the most part my children's father.

Earlier this year, one of my son's teachers suggested I start a jewelry business. Which I had to really think about. I had never been creative in that way. Well, she gave me a 20 minute lesson on how to make earrings and everything took off from there. I started selling at a green market on Saturdays and started selling to my friends. I became inspired by other jewelry makers and other DIYers. I became very attracted to natural body care. I took a soap making class this summer and then started to have a growing fondness for soaps and body butters. But, I'm one of those people who has to research everything before jumping in. I probably online/window shopped for a couple of months. Searching for the best prices, the best vendors, the best products. the best this, the best that....i'm sure you can understand. It took me awhile to jump in. I found a very simple recipe for body butters online, and after gathering supplies bit by bit. I was ready to try it. I made the first couple of batches and had to replace 2 stick blenders. But the finished product came out almost where I wanted it to be. Once I discovered the hand mixer, I guess you can say the rest is history. I took the body butters to a couple of markets and they sold out. I love working face to face with customers. I'm not the type that will sit back and fold my arms and expect sales. I speak to every potential customer (like an old friend), I sample the product on site, and more times than not close the sale!

I'm so grateful to create a great product that is catching on. My entire household uses the body butter faithfully.

For growth, I plan to expand my product line to include soaps & scrubs. I also plan to partner with a couple of retailers on the East Coast because I have a lot of dear friends out there. I will still work with my jewelry line IndiasWorldDesigns. I will just do simple jewelry and custom orders. I am really in love with creating body products and think I've found my calling.

Thanks for reading my story!
