Today we’d like to introduce you to Jaimi Alexander.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Jaimi. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I clearly remember visiting my mom’s house after what I felt at the time were SO many failed attempts at business and just sitting there like, “I officially do not know what to do anymore, I’m at the end of my rope.” I said a prayer of surrender. That I was now stepping my little ambitious butt aside and letting God take the wheel.
Fear of failure had kept me in the seat of control for so long I was exhausted. This was November 2015! I then began on a journey of seeking to understand more about myself and clarity on my purpose on the planet. I was led to a sisterhood in which I served for a year. Using all my talents and skills to help spread a message of healing to every woman who came to any of the programs and retreats that were being held. At one point we started thinking, hmmm it would sure be nice to gift the ladies with things that would help them remember everything about what they just learned and walk with it in everyday life. And that’s when Get Stoned With Us was born. We made our first sales amongst the group December of 2016 and became an official and public business in April of 2017. Since then it has been such a joyful, unique, journey and learning experience. I’ve never owned a product business but I knew that the beauty, power and intention of crystals and gemstones were the perfect by product for what I stand for in this world as a whole. Get Stoned With Us allows for sharing the power of intention, a catalyst for positive conversation and a shift in the mindset all while looking fabulous in our jewelry! Today we maintain good sales and looking to become GREAT in 2018!
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
There have been struggles along the way as in beginning anything new there was a lot I didn’t know and still learning about selling products online. When the business first began we were in partnership with a sales and marketing force that in the early stages realized that they were unable to add our business to their portfolio. So, I had to step up and figure it out. We also received so much wonderful advice from friends in business consulting and marketing and although useful, it was quite overwhelming! I personally attended little classes and seminars and asked as many questions as I could while also listening intuitively as to what would be ‘right’ for my business. We also had a VERY interested investor and took a few meetings which felt so great and then…. radio silence. There have been so many ups and downs! Even at this time I’ve noticed that I’ve been personally so tied up in the day to day that I have not been putting as much of my love and creativity into the business as I originally intended. But the good news is now, the business is very structured because I took that time. The challenges and obstacles will always be there but I am confident that we can continue to navigate them with grace and joy for the lessons they bring that make us better!
Get Stoned With Us – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Get Stoned With Us “an invitation to your higher self” is a subscription box based business created to encourage people to walk with the power of their intention. It goes back to the basic, “thoughts are things” concept and when we get specific about what we intend to create, we will see our desires drawn right to us! Crystals each have their own individual meaning and metaphysical healing properties as well. Our goal is to educate our customers on each stone, so that no matter what they intend to do, such as attract love, wealth, speak up or have more compassion, their jewelry will keep that said intention on their mind. Me? Well I specialize in giving people permission to be who they are. I am a big supporter of people. If God is the creator and we are made in His image then we are creators too. In a world FULL of judgment and people telling you what you should do, how you should look, and how you need to be, I create environments that support who YOU authentically are. My purpose on this planet is to spread light and create a love culture by using my resourceful skill of bringing people together. People need people, support, inspiration and win win opportunities to succeed! I am known for my great energy, my interviews and hosting, Get Stoned With Us and my monthly events.
Again, all designed to give people an environment to shine bright in all that they do while meeting other beautiful souls at the same time. I’m most proud of the fact that this terrified me to do but I’m doing it any way LOL Totally out of my comfort zone here and learning more every day. I feel set apart from others because I’m not just selling you jewelry. This company is infused with an entire ecosystem of support, connection, education, and love, driven by me, a person who God literally placed here to uplift and elevate the masses.
What is “success” or “successful” for you?
Success for me would be to see people transformed. To see people say, “yes I totally saw a change and Get Stoned With Us helped me understand how to elevate my thoughts. It helped me to wear my Rose Quartz and be reminded that I am love, I am Loved and I am attracting love, because once I set my mind to it, that’s exactly what happened!” Mohave stories come in about great conversations people had when someone asked them about their stones, to know that someone walked into their annual review and asked for a salary of their worth and received it, to know that an over thinker now has a more sound mind and clarity of thought…. that to me would be success!!! So, I’m looking out to hear from the people :), Our customers!
