So as you all know I love to support local! During lock down, we are going to do a whole lot of these to highlight these businesses – many of which are taking HUGE strain during this time – and shed some awareness and love to all!
So I discovered the most beautiful local brand of earrings! Everything is unique and gorgeous. Such stunning pieces, so elegant and so lovely. Please may I introduce you to INDIGO MOON. They literally launched their online store a few days ago and so far as been an absolute success!
I chatted to Meg about their business and she had this to say!
You opened your own business – How does it feel to be a successful business owner that inspires others and loves what they do?
We feel very privileged to be able to run our own business, especially as it is a Mother and Daughter team. Starting this business, it has shown others including family and friends that if you put your mind to something and are passionate about it, you can succeed.
It makes it even more worth while when you love what you do.
What are the top 3 learnings you have had to find out the hard way since starting your own business?
The three most difficult things we’ve had to learn over the past few months of running our own business, is that it is not as easy as some say. It has been very challenging yet rewarding designing and creating our website from scratch without the help of professionals. The final thing would be the administrative functions of the business.
Where do you see your business in 5 years? Once we have gotten over the effects of the lock down.
We are very excited for what the future holds for Indigo Moon Designs as we are looking to expand the Indigo Moon brand into new and different forms of retail. We are hoping for a successful and prosperous future as we are passionate about our business.
What is your advice to individuals out there wanting to start their own businesses but are too scared?
We feel the best advice for individuals who are wanting to start their own business but are hesitant, would be to plan and do extensive research before spending any money. We feel that it has to be something you are passionate about otherwise you’ll give up too easily.
Tell us 2 things that are the BEST part about owning your own business and make it all worth while?
The two things that are the best part about owning our own business is spending quality time together whilst doing something creative and being able to be have a say in every aspect of the business. It does make it all worth while as we are the decision makers from start to finish on our designs, our social media platforms and marketing.
How has lock down affected you and your team?
Initially if affected us as we weren’t able to purchase our packaging nor were we able to deliver. Now that couriers are open and our packaging company is open, we are back to normal. We are lucky to be an online company and it has allowed us to focus on new designs and the launch of our website.
Indigo Moon is a brand new little business, destined for great things. Don’t forget you found out about them here first! Check out their Instagram account and see all the gorgeous photos of all their designs. You won’t be sorry. Don’t forget to support local. Always!
