I own a business named Closet Shēk which is an online thrift and modern chic boutique. I take some gently used thrifted items and resell them as well as order bulk items and sell them.
Why did you become an Entrepreneur?
I became an Entrepreneur because I love to thrift and this started as mainly a thrift site. I would always find items that were perfect but too big for me and one day mentioned it to my best friend jokingly that I should buy those items still and resell them. She encouraged me to do it and I did.
Why did you choose your business niche?
I chose it because it is fashion and I love clothes. Why not be able to shop for something you love and share what you love with others. I have received very good feedback and had success with the small online business. I have only improved my site to attract more and more customers and my customer base is spreading dramatically.
Most Exciting Life Experience?
I would definitely say my most exciting life experience was skydiving. I am terrified of heights and conquered that fear by skydiving with one of my close friends. It was such an amazing experience although they almost had to push me out of the plane. As scared as I was that day to take the leap, I would do it again in a heartbeat if given the opportunity.

“The man who stops advertising to save money is like the man who stops the clock to save time”
Why Is It... A man wakes up in the morning after sleeping in an advertised bed, washes with an advertised soap, shaves with an advertised razor, sits down and drinks advertised tea or coffee, drives to work in an advertised car and writes with an advertised pen. Then... He refuses to advertise, saying "Advertising doesn't work". But when his business fails, he finally advertises: "Business for Sale" - Anonymous
