Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
No, it definitely has been a labor of beautiful work. With the market being so saturated with skin wellness, it has taken some time for me to find my way as a small business one of the biggest challenges is not having access to all the resources which larger companies have. I never allowed this to slow my process just looked at it as a growth for my small business. I’ve had products stolen from shows, recipes copied, and last minutes cancellations. I’ve learned to appreciate these moments because it is all in divine timing.
