How I Got Here

I started this business in February 2020 at the age of seventeen. I had created this lipgloss business to provide my family with extra income due to my father's numerous health concerns such as breathing difficulties, needing foot surgery, chronic back pain, and acute intermittent porphyria. My goal for my business has changed within the past year because it is now time to take care of myself. My family is going to be moving to another state leaving me to pay for tuition, rent, groceries, transportation, and other necessary living expenses. I am currently working at one job part-time and I am looking to work at another job as well. I will also be a sophomore in college this upcoming fall. It will be challenging to handle nursing classes, two jobs, and a business on the side but I need to make it work in order to stay afloat. I am doing my best to provide good quality products for my supporters. Thank you all so much for your support and love!
