Community Highlights: Meet Anasiah Clark of Glossy By Autumn

Today we’d like to introduce you to Anasiah Clark.

Hi Anasiah, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
Last year of April 2021, my seven years old daughter (Autumn) and I decided to start something that we keep us occupied and something fun. We decided to start making and selling lip gloss from home. When we first started this, we had some many local customers from our town that shopped with us, we continued for a few months. This was always something that we were doing to raise more money so that I could take Autumn to Disney World for her birthday within the next upcoming months (which we made happen). After the birthday trip in October of 2021, we stopped. January 2022 something told me to get back into it, that it would be a great idea, I also felt it in my soul so I decided to go with it. We started back selling lip glosses, with increased sales. As the months went on, we started expanding, adding more products and shipping. In April of 2022 I decided to quit my full-time job to become a full-time entrepreneur, this is how I got where I am today, with faith and positivity.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
For the most part, I can say that it has been a smooth road. As an entrepreneur, we all have major or minor bumps in the road that comes along with it. At first, when I started shipping out products I was very nervous and it took me some time to get used too, but now I am starting to get better and better with it.

As you know, we’re big fans of Glossy By Autumn. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about the brand?
The name of our business at first was just Glossy Lips By Autumn, but once we started adding more products, we decided to change the name. Not only do we sell lip gloss, but we also sell lip scrubs, body scrubs, and body butters for both men and women. We plan to add more items in the future and expand more. The products are made with all-natural ingredients, we like to focus on lip care along with skin care as well.

Do you have any advice for those just starting out?
For others that are just starting out just remember to remain positive and encouraged, most importantly if you want something be sure to stay focused. Everything will not be easy as pie, you have to put in work and have dedication, and never let someone tell you that you cannot do it, if so prove them different. When I was starting out I wish I would’ve known that it wasn’t going to be as easy, but with motivation and faith it makes it much easier now
