This month we sat down with an amazing brand taking over the internet . O!cessories’ clients are gems, women and men that are confident about themselves and their look; those alike who enjoy embellishments and unique fashion accessories for their wrist. While we also cater to men, female traffic dominates the brand. The projects I enjoy most is creating bracelets for the pop-up shops. I get to be creative and use charms that I don’t have to ensure there’s plenty of, which makes them even more exciting to sell. take a look at our exclusive interview with the rising brand below
How does the brand make a difference in the world?
This mission for the brand is to become the “go to” accessory choice for wrist wear because of its precise design, colors and quality.
Tell us about a time when you showed determination to continue as an entrepreneur.
Back in 2013, I decided to take the leap of faith to pursue entrepreneurship. At the time I was teaching, which is another passion of mine, but the determination to take O!cessories to the next level weighed heavy on my decision to leave; and so, I did. While my heart was full of determination my plan was not. It was then I learned the seriousness of having a plan as well as timing; for that leap of faith neither was in position. In short, I learned the hard way, but the lesson was worth it. The O!cessories following continues to grow even when I prioritized other things before it. I now have a new appreciation and determination for being an entrepreneur.
Give me three best qualities of your brand.
Unique – creative, one of a kind
Brilliant – How they look, mix of colors
Timely – meaning clients receive their purchases in a timely manner.
Being an entrepreneur is a 24/7 job…
Pacing is key and significant to getting things done, especially when all things move through one person.
What three qualities you feel an entrepreneur …
Entrepreneur should be:
Friendly and approachable
Where do you see your business in ten years? How do you plan to get there?
Well O!cessories has been a brand for close to ten years now. I see O!cessories in malls at a kiosk stand, beginning on the east coast. The plan is work on getting the first to establish the brand in order to expand.
