Brandi and I worked together briefly before I moved to Dallas. We didn't know each other very well but I remember that she was always very sweet, positive and was a devoted mother to her adorable twin boys. She did not use being a busy mother of two as an excuse not to start her business, Bee Kisses, which is a line of all natural lip balms and lip scrubs.
Brandi worked on the launch of her product line for a little over a year before it officially opened for business a couple of months ago. That in and of itself is impressive. When deciding to start a business offering any kind of product, it is extremely important to take the necessary time to research and test the product. Brandi did just that before selling the products of her lip care line. She credits her obsession for cosmetics, specifically lipsticks, scrubs, balms and glosses, as the inspiration for starting Bee Kisses. "Why not create my own?" She thought.
Bee Kisses products are currently hand made and delivered by Brandi but she plans to implement manufacturing and expand her product offering in the near future. "My products will have your lips soft and moisturized with a little shine. They also smell and taste great," Brandi says of her lip balms and scrubs.
Brandi also plans to have her products sold in stores and boutiques nationwide. Bee Kisses lip products are currently available in herbal mint flavor. She is in the process of adding additional flavors that include cherry, vanilla, and peppermint. "The herbal mint lip balm is my top seller but most people buy the scrub as well. I recommend both for the best result," Brandi says of her most popular products.
With 75 orders under her belt in just 60 days, it is obvious that Brandi is on to something with Bee Kisses. Brandi is just getting started with her business but feels that she has already learned many valuable lessons. "It takes time so I have had to be patient because the process is never ending." Brandi says. She offered words of wisdom to others who are interested in starting a business as well. "Whatever you put in is what you will get out and always be true to your own vision."
