1) What inspired you to begin building and creating your business?
I was certified in energy work about 17 years ago. I experienced a powerful moment of truth which led to the creation of a pretty progressive holistic product. I didn’t have much money for marketing or to build a nice website. I tried to list the product on some of the popular platforms at the time (Ebay, Etsy, Storenvy, Amazon etc.). Nobody was searching for what I had to offer. I was a misfit. I had an aha moment and decided to build the platform that would serve other “misfits” who might be under-capitalized and could use some business acumen. I want to efficiently serve those who make the world a better place!
2) How do you feel it serves the community and your consumers?
Mindful Market is a community-driven platform. We take no commission on sales. Our algorithms drive awesome conscious consumers (our community) to local stores in their neighborhood. Our community can share the love, write reviews and rate all the shops on the platform. We will be launching live real soon, so stay tuned! We plan on donating a portion of sales to local and global initiatives every month. We want to help small conscious based businesses grow and succeed any way we can. Our consumers can now shop by over 180 values that feel dear to their heart (organic, eco-friendly, empowers women, vegan etc.).
3) How do you see your business as an integral part of a larger healing revolution both locally and globally?
Mindful Market will have a massive impact (sans the ego) and help expedite a larger healing revolution. We not only promote awesome products that enrich well-being, but can’t wait to increase exposure for alternative medicine practitioners (Reiki, Acupuncture, Cranial Sacral, Ayurveda etc). At launch, practitioners from the USA and Canada can set up a shop. We plan to expand more globally as quickly as the universe intends
