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, Tonya, who is a consultant with the adult novelty company, Pure Romance. Here is what she had to say:
1. How long have you been in business for yourself?
I have been in business for myself for one year.
2. Why did you choose to start your own business?
I wanted to start my own business because I love freedom, and the opportunity to be creative with my own ideas. I am a strong, independent woman.
3. What is the most challenging and most rewarding thing about being an entrepreneur?
My personal challenge in business is budgeting and doing it well. The rewarding part, however, is having new opportunities arise from selling my products. For instance, venturing into the lingerie industry, directing my own fashion show, and booking gigs as a stylist.
4. What do you think about the Vend ‘N Mix events?
It’s great opportunity to meet and greet other entrepreneurs and professionals.
5. What’s one benefit of participating in vending events?
It’s really all about meeting guest! Some of the people you meet turn into life long friendships. You also get to network with people who are willing support you and your friends in business.
Our next event will be on August 26th, 2017 at Rustik Tavern in Brooklyn, NY. To apply to be a vendor, click here!
