In 2014, my first business was launched. SPIES Clothing was a brand dedicated to raising mental health awareness. SPIES stood for Support People In Every Situation and that was exactly what the company did.
Continuously setting up at local events and concerts with a small merch table in the back of the venue, SPIES became known as more than a clothing line.
Strangers would come over to our little folding table covered in shirts with positive messages. They'd smile, say they liked the design, and that's when the story began.
The SPIES team all struggled with depression, anxiety, or some form of mental illness. When we would share this information with a stranger who casually stumbled over to our merch table, they would become transfixed and inspired by our stories, but more so about the fact that we were sharing our stories with them. Being so candid and open about our own experiences allowed people to feel like they could do the same.
The number of stories, tears, and praise we received during these exchanges was overwhelming. To amplify the impact SPIES could make, I brought the company online and transitioned from a clothing line to a digital platform where people could share their experiences with mental illness online in a non-judgemental space.
The company thrived and I began to wonder why there weren't more people out there talking about mental health. I began coaching others who wanted to turn their wounds into wisdom by sharing their experiences with mental illness and recovery with the world.
It was a wild ride and I loved every second of it. I loved the company so much that I let it consume me. The company I was leading preached the importance of mental health, meanwhile my own mental health was faltering.
I hit pause on my first business to reclaim my mental health. During this time I researched and learned how to implement marketing strategies, automation techniques, and other time-saving solutions into my business.
The result: learning how to run a small business without sacrificing my mental health throughout the journey.
From the experience of building a brand from the ground up, watching it crumble as my mental health declined, and ultimately learning how to rebuild both my mind and my business - I am committed to helping you stay mentally healthy throughout your entrepreneurial journey.
Success truly amounts to nothing if you can't make it through the day without breaking down.
I understand how difficult it is to maintain your mental health while you build your business, especially if you struggle with depression or anxiety.
By providing digital marketing strategies and easy to implement actions, I hope to relieve you of some of the stress you may be under trying to get your business off the ground.
You don't have to go through this journey alone. I'm here to support you, every step of the way.
