Meet Elizabeth Montes of Goldn Mau

Today we’d like to introduce you to Elizabeth Montes.

Hi Elizabeth, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Being a boutique owner has always been a goal of mine. As a teen and young adult, it was difficult to find quality accessories at a price that I could afford. Before I started working in the fashion industry, I never realized how much retailers would mark up their products.

I wanted to create a brand that offered affordable quality accessories for everyone and finally got the courage to launch my business on July of 2021. It started as a passion project; I struggled with mental health issues and used Goldn Mau as an outlet to give me a creative boost and as a way to channel my energy into something positive. Goldn Mau is not just a business to me, I include positive affirmations stickers on every purchase as a small gesture with the hope of making someone’s day better.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Although I love every single minute invested on my business, but it has not always been a smooth road. One of the biggest challenges has been mastering time management to and creating balance while juggling my 9-5, Goldn Mau and my personal life.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
Goldn Mau was created with the belief that style is an expression that should not be limited by your budget. We specialize in curating and sourcing quality unisex gold plated accessories to elevate your unique style.

What sort of changes are you expecting over the next 5-10 years?
My future goal is to branch out to wholesale and help new entrepreneurs by offering quality jewelry items for their customers at the best price. I would also like to incorporate apparel.
