Alright – so today we’ve got the honor of introducing you to Nia Cox. We think you’ll enjoy our conversation, we’ve shared it below.
Nia, thanks for taking the time to share your stories with us today Do you think folks should manage their own social media or hire a professional? What do you do?
Yes, I do manage my own company. It gets hard sometimes but eventually I will hire a team to manage the social media platforms for me. I want my business to grow more before I can hire someone and trust them with managing my platforms!
Awesome – so before we get into the rest of our questions, can you briefly introduce yourself to our readers.
My whole life, I have grown up seeing my mom, aunts, grandmother and cousins making beautiful gifts and decorations. I just knew I wanted to get into this kind of business; first I wanted to be an interior designer but since the summer of 2014 I fell in love making gift baskets, making centerpieces and other things for people. So ever since then, I have pursued my dream. I love everything that I do. My husband is a big part of my dreams with this business.
Camille’s Custom Kreations specialize in Event Planning, Gift Baskets, Candles, Bath Bombs and Massage Body Oils. My business all started from when I made a gift basket for a few people for Valentine’s Day & when I decorated a friend’s baby shower for her. I just loved doing it and I got a lot of compliments from it. Ever since those days I just knew I wanted to turn this into a business.
I’m honestly just proud of myself with my company. I never thought I can do it until I just put my mind into. Everything that I do I loves doing it. You have to love your job and be happy with it. What sets me apart from other companies is my personality, prices and my customer service.
What do you think helped you build your reputation within your market?
I think my loyalty and worked shows and really helped me build a reputation for my business. I also like to work with my customers and I like to get new ideas/challenges from them!
What else should we know about how you took your side hustle and scaled it up into what it is today?
Yes my side hustle turned into my main business. I do have a part time job but my business is everything to me. Yes it has been slow because of COVID but it’s get back on the right track. I love and appreciate all my customers and all the people that have shopped or donated to my business!!!
My plan is to have a storefront with in the next year so I can start selling my products at the store & also give opportunities to other small business owners to have a section in my storefront to sell their products!
