Daily Inspiration: Meet Alexis Hill

Today we’d like to introduce you to Alexis Hill.

Hi Alexis, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
I started making waistbeads and jewelry four years ago while I was in college. Once others got wind of it, they started to reach out about getting pieces made!

I originally started out as “Accentuate You”, when the main focus was waistbeads and jewelry, then my interests and skills grew into candles, etc. I realized that the name “Accentuate You” kept me in a box, and that’s how Zealous Sun was born!

Zealous Sun is all about shining your light, radiating vibrantly, and embracing your true self, all while taking care of yourself. I’ve had so much more success since changing the name and I know it’s just the beginning!

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The road has been pretty smooth. Aside from the typical small business issues. I’m just excited that the Zealous Sun community is growing.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
Waistbeads are my biggest sellers overall! I believe it’s because they make you feel good about yourself. It’s just something about wearing waistbeads that makes you feel sexy & confident!

Our jewelry sells well too. Our community loves the fact that most of the pieces created are all unique, so no two pieces are the same.

Our candles do well once the seasons change to fall/winter! There is nothing like being snuggled up with a nice smelling space!

Outside of Zealous Sun, I work within the Public School System. I love the fact that either way, I’m making an impact on the people who come across me. Be it the adults who are drawn to Zealous Sun or the kids in the classroom!

What makes you happy?
What makes me happy is knowing that my light and smile makes an impression on someone everyday!

Being a creative in general makes me happy.
