HERcultivation: 5 Questions With SHEpreneur Melanie Marie
Melanie Marie is a serial entrepreneur, mother, mentor and all around business woman, currently living out her dreams. We are always intrigued by the women who are in pursuit of their goals and allow themselves to be driven by passion. So therefore we reached out to Melanie Marie, the self made and successful entrepreneur to give us a glimpse of how she dared to quit her 9to5 and work for herself. But don’t jump so fast, listen to the advice she gives to the new entrepreneurs on her blog indrewsshoes.com.
I AM DEDICATED TO HELP PEOPLE TAKE THE LEAP INTO ENTREPRENEURSHIP. I SEE THE VALUE IN OWNING YOUR OWN BUSINESS; WHETHER IT IS SOMETHING YOU DO FULL TIME OR PART TIME. IT TRULY IS REWARDING TO SEE YOUR VISIONS COME TO LIFE. I LOVE THE FEELING I GET WHEN SEEING SOMEONE WIN. I BELIEVE THERE IS ROOM FOR ALL OF US TO WIN!
We are excited to jump right into it! Explain to us your definition of a serial entrepreneur?
I define a serial entrepreneur as someone that launches and runs multiple businesses vs an entrepreneur that launches one business and runs just that one.
Is the brand Melanie Marie your passion project?
Yes, it is. I love Accessories and it was so much fun launching and growing this business.
What was your first piece of jewelry? walk us through that process and feeling.
I actually started making handbags before jewelry. My first handbag was a bag named “Showstopper”. I was so super duper excited after I drew out the design, then received the sample, then the finished product. It was such a surreal feeling and I will never forget it.
Do you see yourself expanding your brand, beyond the gems and jewelry line?
I do. I would love to create shoes. I love shoes (as do all Women) and I think they would be a great addition to the brand.
What advice would you give to the next aspiring entrepreneurs?
I always tell aspiring entrepreneurs to never quit, never look at a failure as the end but a learning lesson, and to never let anyone tear you away from your dreams!
