Q: What inspired your project, Naked Scrubs?
A: I originally started making body products for myself because I have ultra dry skin, especially in the winter. That morphed into making them for my family, and I started selling them to friends of the family soon after. That seed blossomed into Naked Scrubs.
Q: Who or what are your biggest influences?
A: My mom. She always says, “You have to take care of yourself, or no one else will.” I take that to heart when I’m searching for new products to make and try to make things that I know will relax, soothe and pamper my customers.
Q: What would be your favorite Naked Scrubs experience, whether it was an event or fan feedback?
A: One of the first fairs I was a vendor at was in New York City. And here I was, a newbie to business, an armature to salesmanship in a room filled with people who had clearly been selling (and selling well) for a while. I set up my table, had some samples and demonstrations. And I sold out of EVERYTHING. People loved the idea of a small business product line, made from natural ingredients, without synthetics and completely made by hand. I was flabbergasted!
Q: What motivates you to keep going?
A: I enjoy what I’m doing. I wouldn’t do if I didn’t. Whenever I get a positive repost or tweet I smile because I know someone has used my products, liked them, and in some small way I’ve helped make their day less stressful. That makes me happy.
Q: What are you energized about now?
A: I’m energized to make new products. I have all these ideas in my head and can’t wait to launch them.
Q: How would you use Energems to stay on track?
A: I work on the Naked Scrubs line after my full-time job, and I need that boost to get me on my way and power through the night.
