Hi Bryana, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
I started my business back in June. The 3rd, the be exact! Literally in the middle of the Pandemic. When cases were soooo high! I was out of work and home, still thinking about my future! So I decided to take that leap of faith and Invest into myself and do what I LOVE! I always loved Swimsuits, Trendy Clothing, Taking Pictures and just looking and feeling sexy! Us, as women, love to get dressed up and look pretty! Retail therapy is really a thing! This lead me to launch “Adore Me Collection” to make every women feel their sexiest and confident in my pieces!
Since the day I’ve launched, I have Received so much support from not only friends and family but from people, I don’t even know!! Not Only People Local But ALL Over The US!! I honestly thank god every day that people are supporting me and my dreams! I was so nervous at first! They all tell me how great they feel when they are wearing my items & send me tons of pictures! Ugh, I love it so much! it makes me so happy to make others happy! That’s really my goal! To make others happy and feel their BEST!
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Honestly, I wouldn’t say it has been a smooth road. We all know in entrepreneurship and in the business world, everything is not always going to go our way or as planned! But it’s all about how you adapt to the situation and still pull through! Like For Example, back in June, I was taking Pre-orders for some swimsuits. Usually, my shipment takes 4-7 business to reach to me but this time, the shipment was DELAYED!!! It took an extra three Business days to arrive to me! These People that already paid for their items and were expecting it at a certain time because they either had Vacations or an event to be at! Unfortunately, it wouldn’t be here by the time they needed it. So I had to accommodate and offer them something else in the meantime for this inconvenience! I also offered them a discount off there next order! They still shop with me to this day!
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
My Brand is overall a One-Stop-Shop for women! I have a variety of swimsuits from the famous Fendi, Dior, and Gucci kinis! To the sexiest one-pieces & two-piece swimsuits!! I have the trendiest clothing. Not only are my pieces cute, the quality makes it fit so well on all body types! My pieces are best quality, they will hug your curves! What sets me apart from others the most is that I have Quality pieces for UNBEATABLE prices!! That’s why my customers always come back!! I would say that’s what I’m mainly known for! My response time is under 10 minutes Via Email, Text, Or Dm!! I offer pickups and delivery to customers local within a 20-mile radius of Miramar! On my website, you can choose if you want your item picked up, Shipped, or delivered to you! I make everything super convenient for customers!
Do you have any advice for those looking to network or find a mentor?
Honestly, I never looked into mentors. I talk to God on a daily basis so I would Say he is my mentor! My boyfriend is also a big help. He motivates me everyday and keeps me going! Being surrounded by positivity and positive people is VERY IMPORTANT when building a brand!!!!! I network with a lot of people when I go out! I hand out business cards to girls I could potentially see wearing my pieces! I never stop trying to grow!
