The story of Empowered, by Finda Kpakiwa
I moved to New Jersey from central Pennsylvania in November of 2008, what was considered the hight of the economic recession. With only $330 dollars to my name, I agreed to stay with a cousin and sleep on his old, broken leather couch.
Despite the tough living conditions, I was still happy in my heart. I knew that making this move would put me one step closer to my ultimate goal. I took on three jobs to support myself and my journey. During my various trips to my jobs via public transport, I briefly had a thought of a perfume line that would exude everything I believed a strong, independent woman should be in the form of a scent. It was not until I went through a number of trials with my business that this single thought came to life.
After suffering what I considered a major failure, I decided to take one day to fast and allow myself a cleanse to ease my soul. It was then that my mind was flooded with the idea of my fragrance once more, and this time with a simple name, Empowered. I knew in my heart that now was the time to go forth and bring this scent from the depths of my mind into reality!
My partner and I researched low cost manufacturers that would provide the service of creating the fragrance itself and bottling it. We found one in Florida and began the process of selecting a base fragrance and going through various formulations to find the one that sat in my mind for so long. Once that was completed, the first 500 unit run of purse sprayers were filled and shipped. It was one of the happiest days of my life!
I immediately went to work attending fashion meet ups, visiting independent boutiques and growing my network to spread the word of Empowered and its mission. We will soon enough have full sized offerings and a dedicated web store page to begin our next phase of production.
My advice to rising entrepreneurs is to forge and maintain a high level of confidence within your own abilities. You must first improve yourself before you can improve your immediate surroundings. By building this confidence and resistance to defeat, you will no doubt succeed in any endeavor you take on.
