WOW, I can hardly believe it! It's crazy how time flies and how your direction in life 'changes' over time.. As some of you may know, I am pretty much obsessed with all things beauty. It started out with my hair 'obsession' several years ago, which ultimately & eventually turned into an online hair extension business.
It wasnt long before my creative side and my passion for beauty started flourishing and blossoming into other areas. I soon developed the urge to create better & healthier skincare products for myself. Soon after that I began to sell my products in the hair extension stores and started adding mineral makeup as well. At the time I didnt realize my passion to CREATE the makeup. I started out selling some basic mineral makeup that I private labeled or purchased from bulk distributors. But soon enough my creative side again reared its head and before I knew it I was creating my own makeup products. Although, it wasnt getting the exposure that I wanted on the hair sites and before long MBA was born. (Quite appropriately named, I do believe.) The MBA website was a great start but still didnt generate the type of traffic I needed to get my products out there. It was very slow starting. Then one day I stumbled across etsy and thought…what the heck, its worth a shot! Etsy has been a great experience!
Its been very hard work, but its also been very rewarding and I love what I do! I have also made plenty of mistakes along the way. Lord knows, I look back at my earlier days and think OMG I cant believe I sold that, or I cant believe I thought THAT was a good picture. Ive learned alot along the way and still learn new things each and every day. I constantly strive to improve. I have came along way, but still have a long way to go!
Its hard to tell what direction my creativity will take me next. I constantly get the urge to do more things & different things. But I do know that MBA is IN MY BLOOD and will be around for a long time to come! Its been such a rewarding experience and I couldnt imagine NOT creating makeup, beauty & skincare products. I am so thankful to my customers and to everyone who believed in me, my products & MBA! Thank you so much!
