At EATABLE, we're passionate about shedding light on notable businesses: Ones that are dedicated, unique, and set on promoting self-care! It’s only natural that we would turn to one of our retail partners, the Lavish Box, to give you a taste of a luxurious gifting experience that will make this milestone memorable!
The Lavish Box puts together wedding-themed gift boxes full of natural self-care products, making it easy for the bride and groom to give back something easy and meaningful at the same time. We sat down with the founder, Jamila Smith, to learn more about her company and everything it stands for!
Can you tell us a bit about yourself, and what inspired you to start your business?
My name is Jamila, I am a mother of 5 beautiful children from ages 11 to 9 months! What inspired me to start my business was my own wedding - I was stuck trying to figure out what to give my bridal party as a token of my appreciation for their help and efforts. What better way to create something for brides that don’t want the headache?
What advice would you offer entrepreneurs starting out today?
I would advise them to go for it!
Get your plan in order. Think things through. Take your time, and go for it.
In moments of adversity or self-doubt, how do you stay on track and motivated?
In moments of self-doubt, I often remind myself why I am doing this, and why I started. I remind myself that I am making at least one person happy, and if I can create something that touches that one person, then my job is done!
How do you celebrate your wins, professional or otherwise?
I celebrate my wins by simply looking over my work through pictures or reviews from customers. Looking at what I created gives me satisfaction!
Where can we find you?
If you are part of the Eatable connoisseur club, then you’ll want to check out the Lavish Box not just to find out how to treat YOUR wedding entourage to a box of wholesome self-care goodness, but to learn more about this awe-inspiring boss lady business!
