Thank you , -Norma Harris for sharing your journey , in hopes of inspiring others into never giving up ❤️
We as mothers often place our needs, wants and dreams aside for our children’s. Why? Because were hard-wired to do so. Now, don’t get me wrong, that still stands true. But at some point we have to do what makes us individually happy, right? Like they say, if mom’s not happy then no one is.
After having twins and becoming a mother of four. I began toying around with the idea of starting my own businesses. In 2018, I ventured into my first business of customizing gift boxes intended for Brides and Bridal parties. During that venture, I actually loved full-filling the needs of the many brides and bridesmaids I met along the way. Their interactions would cause me to reflect on the happy moments I felt during my own wedding day and the excitement that went along with it. However, gift boxing just wasn’t for me. I was spending a ton of money with no real return insight. That market was overly saturated making it really difficult to find a niche. Sadly, just after one year I made a tough decision to close the gift boxing business. I kept reminding myself to not get discouraged or give up no matter how I was feeling that day. I quickly gathered my thoughts and had another Idea for my second business called Botanica Naturale.
Botanica Naturale is a bath, body and skincare line that specializes in clean, non-toxic beauty products that are self made.
Success for me is truly in the eye of its beholder, keep your passions alive even if you’re a mother and wife. Never ever give up on your dreams, despite your past set backs. I encourage everyone to try something new and take the risk.
While my business is just starting I look forward to my journey ahead …. -Norma Harris. http://www.botanicanaturale.com
