Today we sat down with Paparazzi Consultant Sheree Smiling. She opens up about how she’s dominating the bling world.
What made you decide to get started in a business that seems like it’s heavily saturated with consultants?
I started this business initially when it was fairly newly beginning back in 2017.
I decided to take a leap of faith because I was tired of the excuses I continued to make as to why I couldn't start a business. My biggest reason was to be able to provide a life for my girls that would allow us to do what we wanted, when we wanted.
Paparazzi Accessories was established in 2011 when I became a Fashion Consultant there were less than 100K in the business. There were so many people who didn't even know about the $5 Bling in 2017. I was confident that I could definitely get it out there and be known for doing it the best !!
How did you know you had the right idea?
Funny thing is I didn't know and I wasn't afraid of taking the risk. I knew failure wasn't an option. I also knew that what I was doing before wasn't taking me to the places I really wanted to go in life.
Being a mother, how do you balance parenting and entrepreneurship?
The balance was a huge struggle at first, but I decided to make sure I stayed on a schedule with business while they were at school or sleeping.
How do you plan on growing your business?
I plan to grow my business by consistently learning, meeting new people and utilizing all platforms of social media. My business can be worked anywhere and that's what I love about it!
When you first began your journey, were there some mistakes that you wished you could’ve avoided?
When I first began, I made a huge mistake. I was not sharing the opportunity with everyone. I wish I knew that connections were more important than sales. If you connect with the right people that support, you will see nothing but success.
What advice would you give to anyone wanting to start a business that you wished someone
would have given you?
One thing that I wish was told, is to not be ashamed of your hustle and stay ready at all times.
