Sometimes all it takes is a little *magic* and encouragement from those around you to guide you towards your dreams. At least that’s how it happened for one of our favorite makers, Alexis Rose of Elle Brands. Alexis always knew she wanted to have her own business but kept getting stuck on the idea. Like so many entrepreneurs before her, the concept can hold you back until that SPARK happens and things just start to click!
That spark, combined with her inspired designs, is what has propelled Elle Brands forward and helped Alexis realize her passion for jewelry. Read more about Alexis’s journey & how her “huge heart” helps charities each month hit their goals.
Q: Tell us a little about your company & journey to making it happen.
A: I started Elle Brands in 2019 after a prophetess at my church told me that I would have a high-end accessory line. I wanted to start a business prior to that but all of my ideas didn’t seem to click. When she told me what she saw for my future it felt like a lightbulb went off in my head. The first 8 months of my business were extremely slow but after that my business took off!
Q: Why is this mission important to you?
A: I have a passion for people and I want my business to be able to give as much as possible. Every month I give to a local charity or church but I’ve always wanted to do more.
Q: What is your "superpower"?
A: Positivity, I try to speak positivity, be a light in other’s lives, and see the best in every situation.
Q: We're redefining what it means to be a "mama." Some mamas are traditional mothers; others are unbelievable foster & adoptive moms, devoted caregivers, selfless grandmothers, badass sisters, loving wives, or your very best friend. What does "mama" mean to you?
A: Someone you can lean on and someone who loves you unconditionally.
Q: What change do you hope to see in the world through your business/ product/idea?
A: I want women to be able to find unique and affordable accessories all while supporting causes they care about.
Q: If you could be any #superhero, who would it be & why?
A: Wonder Woman; she’s strong, selfless, confident and beautiful.
