It’s Launch Day!
Well… I’m either crazy or a genius. I have decided to take on the challenge of starting my own company – a new subscription box! I have always known I would start my own business at some point, I just wasn’t sure exactly what it would be or when the time would be right. How did I come up with this business idea? Well I really love the concept of subscription boxes – easy, fun, and the good ones are a great value. When I eagerly searched the interwebs to find the perfect box to sign up for myself, I was disappointed that I didn’t really find one that was a good fit for me. I didn’t want the same type of product over and over collecting in my cabinets (sorry, Birch Box) or a box that offered a generic style because they are trying to appeal to everyone, and consequently appeal to no one (or at least not to me). I saw an opportunity to capitalize on the current popularity of this model with a new twist.
Each Happy Rebel Box is sent once per quarter, and subscribers receive 4-6 different fashion, beauty, and lifestyle pieces with each delivery. Each box is a themed collection (a little insider info – the first box is “Girls Night Out”!) with the items included contributing to the theme of the collection, and reflecting the Happy Rebel aesthetic – classic but edgy. Think tasteful touches of animal print, a lot of neutrals and metallics, and of course a skull here and there. Anyone who wants to add a few carefully chosen and unexpected pieces to their life a few times a year will love this box.
In addition, 10% of all profits will go to carefully chosen non-profit organizations that focus on helping women in the United States and around the world by providing health and wellness services, access to education, and support for those affected by trafficking, domestic abuse and extreme poverty. I was flipping channels one day a couple of years ago when I came across the Show of Force documentary “Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide”. I was shocked and humbled to learn about the challenges some people face on a daily basis simply as a result of the way their culture finds it acceptable to treat them because they are female. The motivation to help in some way has truly become the inspiration behind launching this business. “Impacting lives one person at a time” is a philosophy my Dad demonstrated in his life, and it has inspired me to do the same. Whenever I became discouraged throughout the process of starting this company, I continued to remind myself that even if just one person’s life is positively affected as a result of any awareness or donations raised by this company, it will all be worth it. I tear up now as I type knowing God’s hand is a part of this effort and will multiply the resulting blessings beyond anything I could accomplish alone.
So here is where you come in! I really need your help to get this going. Please like my page on Facebook (“Happy Rebel Box”)and Instagram (@HappyRebelBox) and share my posts with your friends. I have a video post pinned to the top of the Facebook page right now that is perfect for sharing. Every share, comment, and like helps make my posts more visible in people’s news feeds in-between the millions of other posts. Even if the Happy Rebel style isn’t your thing, maybe someone in your life would be a perfect fit for my new subscription box and love to support a small business that gives back.
If you have read this far, thank you! I am looking forward to connecting with you more on here.
