I am excited to share our Featured Friday business owner this week, Sonya McLeod of Face ‘N’ Earth. I have wanted to feature her business for awhile and can’t wait to share it with you. With Christmas approaching, I can highly recommend her skin care products for gifts. These are natural products are perfect for co-workers, friends and family. I have Rosacea which makes my skin very sensitive and can’t use many products on my face. Face ‘N’ Earth is one of the very few that I can use and love.
Let’s meet Sonya!
What is the one thing that you would not be able to function without?
Electricity for my business.
If you won a $10,000 gift certificate to any store, which one would you choose?
That is a hard question, I am very frugal and would use it at many stores for all purposes of life.
If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would you go?
Why did you decide to start Face ‘N’ Earth?
I decided to make my own skin care, as I was unsure of all the products out there and the ingredients that they use. Our nation is becoming more aware of the produce and products that we eat and use, including me. I ordered a batch of ingredients to make my mother some moisturizer for Christmas and I had plenty of ingredients left over. So I made all my friends Christmas presents. They loved my products and basically were begging for more, stating that they would pay this time. After the 3rd batch and 95% of them asking for more and encouraging me to go into business, I decided to follow their advice.
So I quit my job and took quite a few months out on further education and research. After many long hard months I ordered my first large batch of ingredients, made my products and created an Etsy Shop, Ebay and Amazon stores. I even do parties and vendor events. I am amazed at the reviews my customers are leaving and personally informing me. I love it when my products make people happy and they are surprised and now hooked on my products.
What lessons have you learned about being in business?
I have only been a business owner for a short period of time, I don’t think I have learned a lesson as of yet. I have always been a hard worker and put 110% in all of the time. I guess balancing is a lesson when thinking about it. I need to not forget my family, as I tend to get so wrapped up in work. I have learned to stop and spend time with my family.
What are your favorite hobbies and activities?
I love to read good wholesome inspirational books, and have balanced that too. I just finished a great book and to my surprise my business did not suffer.
Where is your favorite place to eat out at?
Cheesecake Factory and Texas Roadhouse.
What is your favorite color?
What is something unique or interesting about you?
Well, I asked my children that question and they said I talk funny LOL (English Accent).
I guess I have been told by many that I am a strong person and I never give up!!! Well, I have learned how to survive and cook without electricity….
