Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
My business is a unique experience where people can create their own signature scent from a variety of fragrance oils, then name it and take it home the same day. The business found me through my mother who is also a designer. We call ourselves “fusionistas.”
How are you involved with both the community and your customer?
I like to participate in events that support the local community. Recently I took part in First Fridays at The Fountains, Downtown Tuesday Nights in Roseville, and also a charity fundraiser to help a nursing home in Chico.
Why is your staff the best in the business?
We are the best because we are unique and can cater to anyone’s needs – whether it is a girls’ night in, birthday party, bridal shower or even a charity event.
Who is your role model in business or in life, and why?
My mom. She is a strong, caring, nurturing and extremely smart person; she managed to raise three children while working full-time.
What’s your hidden talent?
I am great at anything creative. Give me a glue gun and paint and look out, because you never know what you will get! I think that’s why I am a good teacher, because I can make something from nothing and make any moment or lesson more interesting with creativity.
Where do you and your family go locally to have fun?
We like to visit the local parks, especially ones with water so that my daughter can play. We also tour the mall a lot.
And finally, customer service is…?
Providing a quality product that speaks for itself and backing up that product with a high standard of customer service; also, having a passion for and belief in the product that you are selling.
