Meet Anah Turner-Vega of Agev

Today we’d like to introduce you to Anah Turner-Vega.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Agev Co got started because I was looking for some other assistance for my wife as she suffers from Lupus.

While I knew crystals, vibrations, energy isn’t necessarily a “cure-all” I knew it would help alongside her daily medicine regime. I stumbled across bloodstone and started wrapping her jewelry to wear or put loose crystals in her pockets. She received such a good reaction from peers, strangers, etc. about my wire wrapped jewelry.

Since I have always been empathic, into energy, vibration, healing, etc. so it all just felt right, and where I needed to be, so Agev Co was born,

Great, 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?
Crystals properties, vibrations, energies, chakra healing, etc. isn’t the easiest for most people to gravitate to and /or understand.

The beginning was difficult in terms of reaching an audience that still was “unsure” of what we were about and what we had to offer as well as the financial instability that new small business deal with.

My wife and I renovated our shop, manifested what we wanted and stayed true to ourselves, our values, and our goal to impact someone’s life positively every day.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Agev Co – what should we know?
Agev Co, which is our last name backwards (Vega) and an acronym for Amiable, Grounded, Empowered, Vibrant. Which is a storefront that specializes in raw crystals, art (both realistic portraits, and abstract paintings), handmade jewelry, and healing!

We are most proud of the pure growth of our store as well as the neighborhood that we’re in. So much growth, acceptance, and art has blossomed immensely in these last couple of years. Every day we are in the shop we remind ourselves, our regular customers, and even our newcomers to “Always Do Everything With Love.”

We set ourselves apart with both of our art we have displayed, or collaborated pieces, and the simple knowledge we pass to every person who comes in. We do not press the issue of “needing to buy something” and manifest that our shop is a safe space where you can come, chill, talk, and simply just be, everything else will come as it should.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
I’d say persistence, honesty, positive vibes, and genuineness. Without those words we’d be just another crystal shop thats pushing a “new trend” instead of two young black women really trying to impact peoples lives with various energies properties, a higher sense of self, and a place to be reminded that we all need a little assistance through life whether its in a form of a loose crystal, a piece of art, a handmade home decor item, or simply a listening ear.
