I come from a long line of savvy business men and women. Entrepreneurship, those that came before me defined it. It’s in my blood. Negotiating, sales, marketing, understanding the customer, knowing the power of a dollar, how to stand in a room filled with decision makers; my parents and older siblings wrote the book on it. This is the stock from whence I came. It’s also the burden I carry entitled, “YOU BETTER MEASURE UP TO THE REST”.
So here I am 30 years old with a steady safe career but feeling like I was depriving myself of life and living. I needed and need to pursue my dreams of creating a service, producing a product, building a brand, establishing a business! I decided 2013 was going to be the year of change for me. In 2013 the world was going to experience a nudge in my attitude, a change in my appearance, a shift in my motivations, sharply defined intentions, relentless will power, deep seeded passion, fearlessness, a more famine Amy, an unapologetic sassy and savvy take charge women, a humble personality with a grateful soul.
Introducing me, Amy 2.0 if you will. I have arrived and I can’t go back, I don’t want to go back to desiring life and pursuit of happiness. I am tired of running from what I could be. I am tired of feeling ashamed of wanting to be great. Most of all I’m tired of fearing my own potential and the light that I possess. I only have 1 life to live and I want to live it without pause.
When I first started this blog I mentioned to you that I wanted to figure out my God given purpose. I have always been haunted by the feeling that I am supposed to do something Great with my life. We can define “great” a thousand different ways. Funny thing is, I haven’t defined it for myself YET… but I have the feeling I’ll know it when I get there. Enough rambling. I started my business because I felt like my life and future depended on it. It was something inside of me that needed to get out. Starting an all natural body and bath line just made perfect sense. I am my own customer. I’ve lived cover up my body in the hot Florida weather because of eczema, not having clear skin, having a reaction to lotions, perfumes and soaps. I’ve created something that works for me and I want as many people as possible to experience what I’m experiencing. This is my accomplishments in the making.
Without further ado I would like to present to you my labor of love, my company, my legacy /ˈBÄDĒ/BOX.
