Today continues a favorite series featuring moms who run small businesses here in Katy. Mom-run businesses are growing, and people now, more than ever, are taking chances and following their dreams. I’m excited to feature some of these businesses on my blog each week for the next few weeks.
Today, we’re meeting Renae with PUREhaven Essentials!
1) What is your business/shop name?
My business is called PUREhaven Essentials by Renae!
2) What do you sell/ what service do you provide?
I offer completely natural, safe, and trustworthy personal and home care products for people of all ages!
3) How did you decide to start your business?
I had a party in June of 2016 and fell in love with the message. I had been trying to make healthy food choices for my family, but at my party I learned that what we put on our skin is also so important! Our skin is our largest organ, and what we put on it can get into our bodies. Kids are even more susceptible! After my party I was able to try all of these products, and we loved them! When the idea of my becoming a Consultant was brought up, I thought “Why not!?” I know I can trust that the company uses only pure, natural ingredients – never synthetics or harmful ingredients. PUREhaven also taught me that even the smallest change can add up to make a huge difference.
4) What is your mission statement?
Our Mission is to help people to live a more toxic-free life! I teach people how to read ingredient labels on products such as shampoo just as we have learned to do with food labels. It is equally important to know what you are putting on your body as to what you are putting in your body. When you know better, you do better.
5) What is your most popular product/ what types of clients do you help?
That is such a tough question, because we have over 100 natural products! Our most popular products are our Shampoo and Conditioner, Cleanser, Moisturizer, Dream Cream, Lip Balm and Surface Cleaner. We actually just began offering those exact products in one discounted bundle. It is called the Essentials Bundle No. 8. It helps you to get started without feeling overwhelmed, and saves you money! When you buy the bundle you are actually getting two products for free!
6) What motivates you to grow your business?
I am very fulfilled to know that I am helping other families in my community to make a smart choice for their family. Personally, I am able to stay home with my children, which are the most important thing to me!
7) Any tips for balancing family life with business life?
I actually incorporate my family in the business. They know what Mommy does and they talk about it to people. I am able to work as little or as much as I want. Some seasons of life are more hectic than others. It is nice to have a great team at PUREhaven Essentials to help and a great team at home.
8) Any words of wisdom for moms who are thinking of taking the leap into starting their own business?
Just JUMP! There will never be a perfect time! I never in a million years thought I would be able to sell a product until I found one I believed in.
