Today we’d like to introduce you to Veronica Casero.
Hi Veronica, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
It all started last year during the pandemic when I was working from home during the quarantine. I was tired of my job of ten years and I had always dreamt of owning my own boutique, a place where any woman can escape from reality and enjoy a slight bit of luxury. As fate would have it, while I was in my planning phase, in a blink of an eye, my life changed forever. I had suffered a stroke hemorrhage due to a brain tumor located in my brain stem, the part of your brain that controls breathing, motor skills and speech. I had full left-sided paralysis before I made it to the ER. 2 days later, I was having brain surgery to remove my brain tumor.
Fast forward six months later, after having to learn how to talk, write and walk again, I decided that I was done working for someone else’s dream and started to pursue mine. I wanted to build something that was inclusive to all women, bringing different trendy styles, ranging from boho chiq to your everyday basics with pizzazz. My ultimate goal is to own a storefront and make a lasting impact for women of all backgrounds. A place where self-love is truly valued and where one can always walk away feeling empowered and ready to conquer the day!
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
No it hasn’t. It was much harder than what I expected it to be, especially when I wear ten different hats to run my business. There is still a learning curve that I face daily along with the physical struggles that I am also attempting to conquer.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
We are an inclusive online boutique providing a boho chic feel ranging from basics to luxury. We have centered our boutique around self-love because we want every women to feel beautiful, confident and empowered. What makes us different is that our customer service is impeccable. We care about our clients, and if you shop with us, you’ll be part of our growing brand. We know you have so many options to choose from but you’ll never regret a purchase with us.
Before we let you go, we’ve got to ask if you have any advice for those who are just starting out?
Take things day by day, don’t expect traffic right away because that part is very hard. Focus on building a brand first and foremost. Remember, people will forget what you did for them but they will never forget how you made them feel. My mantra, and I’ll let you borrow it, is faith over fear. Have faith in your dream and believe in what you’re building even when the going gets rough because it will be rough at times. Best of luck and I believe in you!
