At SCULTP’D, one of our missions is to support and lend our services to as many entrepreneurs as possible. To offer support and assist in developing small business owners’ brands is a passion of ours. For this reason, we host Vend ‘N Mix events throughout the year. These events are curated to bring entrepreneurs and their supporters together to network while enjoying music, light bites, raffles, and wine, all while shopping from the featured vendors.
We sat down with one of our featured vendors for our August 26th, 2017 event
, Stacey Atherly, a Paparazzi Jewelry consultant, and owner of Pixy’s Closet. Here is what she had to say about her journey as an entrepreneur:
1. How long have you been in business for yourself?
I joined Paparazzi in May 2017 as an independent Consultant and I love everything it has to offer.
2. Why did you choose to start your own business?
I was tired of working in the professional world especially since I started at young age and was not able to enjoy my younger years how I wanted to. With Pixy’s Closet I am able to have all the freedom I can imagine.
3. What is the most challenging and most rewarding thing about being an entrepreneur?
The most challenging part is getting the people you know close and dear to you to support you and your endeavors. The most rewarding feeling is getting continuous support from people you don’t know. Styling and accessorizing strangers is the most heart-warming and rewarding feeling because they end up being your biggest spenders.
4. What’s one benefit of participating in vending events?
The different types of people who come up and take a look at your product. Even if they don’t buy anything they still had a peek of interest which drew them to your table. A simple conversation can make the difference.
5. What modes of advertising are most relevant to your brand?
Social media presence plays a big part, but self-advertising is the money maker. People will stop you on the street to compliment the smallest aspect on you and that’s where the magic begins.
