Years in Tampa Bay
I'm the creator for Raise Your Souls Vibe.
What do you do?
I make handmade spiritual swag
Why do you do it?
I love creating magical art. It feeds my soul and makes me extremely happy.
What was your Catalyst? (How did you get started?)
I had been buying a lot of crystals and I needed to do something with them. I also had my dried wedding flowers and wanted to do something unique and meaningful with them. I was browsing on Instagram and I came across a beautiful dreamcatcher and thought, "I'm going to make this, but I'm going to do it bigger and better." So I did, and that's how my business got started.
What’s a common misconception or unknown aspect of what you do?
Everything I do is done with intention. I am completely focused on what I am making. and I never know how it will turn out. I tried drawing out my ideas in advance, but I found myself trying to match them exactly and that wasn’t me. It wasn’t authentic. I never want two pieces to be the same.
What’s the most challenging part of your Hustle?
Being found by customers through social media posts and learning which hashtags to use. I am a private person so talking about myself on camera is challenging.
What’s the most valuable piece of business advice/insight that’s helped you?
Never give up. Keep going. Be you. Be real. Be authentic.
