Meet Marilyn Giselle of MG in Duarte

Today we’d like to introduce you to Marilyn Giselle.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Marilyn. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Fashion has always been my passion and I’m extremely creative. I found my purpose at the age of nine. It wasn’t until my junior year of high school that I began to take both serious. When you know you’re purpose, your vision becomes clear. Business has always come natural to me. I always knew I wanted to own multiple businesses, which has lead me to having multiple business ventures.

Owning my own retail store has always been my ultimate dream in which I’m still expanding. Beauty is my second interest and health is my overall. It’s important for me to only put my name on what I truly believe in. I’m still building, a solid foundation is what’s important to me.

Has it been a smooth road?
Business definitely isn’t easy. When we think of our “dreams” we tend to only focus on the outcome without realizing how much work needs to be invested. I always tell people that it’s stressful but it’s the good kind of stress when you’re passionate about what you do. My only blueprint was my calling and my faith in God. Many times I had to put off my “dream” and take care of my other businesses because that’s what was supporting me financially. Life gets hard but we must always go harder. I didn’t have any guides. I took many loses but it gave me wisdom and experience that I’m now able to share with other entrepreneurs so that their road is a little less bumpy than mine. I truly believe in empowerment. United we stand and divided we fall. When you’re really secure about who and what you are you don’t see a competitor you see a teammate that can help you along the way. Of course, not everyone is to be trusted, but when your soul knows it knows who is worthy and who isn’t.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with MG – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I own a retail store called “MG”. It stands for my name “Marilyn Giselle”, it describes me best, who I am and what I stand for and my taste in fashion most definitely. I love anything fashion. I have an eye for styling. I love designing pieces from clothing to shoes and accessories so that’s something to look for in the near future. I’m also in the beauty and health industry. I believe in the phrase “when you look good you feel good”. It all starts within. I keep it real all the time. You gain respect of rawness and Integrity. I just am me. I love to Interact with my supporters. I open up to them always. Life gets hard and they need to know the real. I inspire many and it falls back on who I am as a person. I’ve come a long way and I don’t give up. I’m probably the first person to pop in their head when they hear the word “hustler”. I just believe in doing what you love and always making your visions a reality. So if I can inspire the next person to follow their dreams and really find themselves then that’s one of my many accomplishments in life and I know I’m doing something good.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I’m from Duarte, CA. I love my city! I’m just trying to continue to put it on the map. I love the whole LA area. The vibes are incredible. So free spirited and definitely highlights health. Everything a creative person aspires in a workplace for sure. There are so many things to get inspired by especially the real influencers from LA who spread real knowledge. Traffic is something we probably shouldn’t even complain about anymore because it hasn’t cleared up and probably won’t being that LA is that city!
