Issue 5 – April 9th, 2020
Hey lovelies! How’s it going? We’re back with another edition in our monthly boss babes series. Today we’re hanging out with MaryAnna from Stover & Co.. Her brand specializes in liquid acrylic jewelry. Each piece of jewelry she makes is a salute to all you strong women who have hearts of gold. Let’s get into this interview.
We started our business a little over a year ago.
I was in light depression and loneliness after a recent move, my husband’s tough job and pregnancy with my third child. I had pursued many of my dreams before such as being a seamstress and event planner; both of which I was good at but they just didn’t fit into my family life well. The liquid acrylic art and later jewelry was something that my three year old daughter enjoyed doing with me and fit better into our family. I also was wanting to learn how to run a business on a small endeavor before running a family ranch in the future a living.
Besides what I already mentioned. As I became happier and healthier, enjoying my children and my life I wanted to pass on the things I learned and encourage and uplift other women and especially other mothers. Helping us all grow in whole person wellness and making our world a happier heather place.
Our business has been self supporting all except the initial investment. But building a business from scratch is not fast. Business has been pretty slow as we lay a solid foundation. Craft shows have been pretty good for our business but not for the family so we switched to being exclusively online and branching out into wholesale. So far we have three stores. But we need to keep growing to stay in business. Overcoming this is a daily keep moving onto the next step. Keep working. Just keep swimming.
I love that it has opened up my world to new learning and creativity. Having a project that I’m working on makes me feel like my life isn’t just a hamster wheel of duties.
I love to listen to encouraging and uplifting music all day long! And to remember to dress up a little everyday!
Ever since I was a little girl I always wanted to go to Italy and Japan. I have no idea why lol!
Even when I was little I loved parties. After I got married I threw an amazing party every month. I have planned weddings and banquets. After my children are all grown I would like to become a full time event planner.
