She Anna Bella

Name: Barbara Strong

Location: Decatur, GA 

Type of Business:
She Anna Bella Representative

What does your business do?
She Anna Bella is a handbag; scarf and accessories store. We help women find selections in these items to coordinate with their clothing selections for a better lifestyle.

When and why did you start the biz?
I did not start this business but this company has been in business for over 2 years and I am a business owner representing this line of products. I saw this website and I knew I should be apart of it. I would like to open a women 's clothing company, but saw this company and believe that I am still pursuing my dreams because it all relates to each other. The woman needs to have a total look for the different images she play in todays society. She is a professional career woman; a mother; a wife; a grandmother; a mother in law; a provider as a single woman she has many images and although my clothing line is not available yet I believe that I can give the woman who wants a good product to fit into her lifestyle (She Anna Bella).

How Many People are in your Company?

Where's your office?
It is at my kitchen table or sometimes on the sofa. I can work anywhere; sometimes at the library. But, I am station at home all the time working to get people to know about She Anna Bella

What's the toughest part of running your biz?
The toughest part of running my business has been marketing it. I represent She Anna Bella and I am a Business Owner who wants to find individuals who believe like me and want to have a good look for the images or roles they play in life. It is good to find a site that has the products or products you need to fit your lifestyle.

What's the most fun part?
The most fun part is that its exciting for me to be apart of this again. I have always wanted to own my own clothing store and now I can own my own online store that carries handbags; scarfs; and accessories. I love the fact that I am still in the Fashion business and following my dreams.

Anything you would have done differently?
I started been a business owner early in life when I started selling products, such as Avon; Beauty Control Cosmetics I knew that business was for me. I learned lessons that just because I said I wanted to be in business didn't mean I would just get there. I had to look at financing my business; marketing; market; purpose or mission and I had a lot of ideas, but I needed something solid that said go for it you are ready just know these things first; commitment; purpose and investment.

What's next on the horizon for your biz?
What's next for me is to continue with opening my Clothing Store. This store is unique in that it is not like any other retail clothing store. This store teaches lessons on interviews and the proper dress for interviews and jobs. I have found that so many people still do not know how to properly dress on interviews.

What advice do you have for others?
I would say don't give up. That ideas or goal that is still in my mind will not go away until you do it. I have been on this journey a long time trying to get my clothing store up and running and found She Anna Bella. I know I am in the right place and that it will lead me to open my clothing store.

How do you use Idea Cafe to help your biz?
I will use Idea Cafe to get people to know about She Anna Bella. She Anna Bella started with two friends trying to find a way to earn extra income and partnered up. Soon other women wanted to join in making an income and they inspired women all over the country. They empower women to have freedom; confidence to own a fashion accessory company. I am so much apart of this company and if I can show others how to get up off the ground then I want to do so.

School (where, still in school, degree)?
Belhaven University/Memphis, Tn. Associate Business Science Degree in Business Administration

Prior jobs or business?
I had a rented 10x10 space in an upscale flea market in Millington, Tn and sold women's clothing.All merchandise sold and used my own paycheck to support business. I want this business again, but online. I have experience in retail where Belk; Carters; Macy's; Burlington Coat Factory; Dillards are all sources for retail experience I have had over the years. I also was store Assistant Store Manager at Family Dollar; and Bargain Center USA and Department Manager at Gus Meyer

Favorite Food?
Roast Beef

What are your pets' names?

Do any of these pets help with your biz?

Is there any one person or event in your life that led you to go into business for yourself?
I saw how my mother and father had businesses when I was young. I would read magazines on fashion and business and knew that desiring business was the goal I would follow.

Anyone you publicly want to thank?
I like to thank my children for always telling me I can make it and never give up
