Meet Angela Lewis and Dean Holliday of Life Notes in Cobb County

Today we’d like to introduce you to Angela Lewis and Dean Holliday.


So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Life Notes was started about three years ago in 2016 with the goal to create a company that promoted messages to empower women through positive words and phrases on products that are worn and seen daily. Our core product offering is bling t-shirts and hats. We knew in launching our company that we had to quickly differentiate ourselves from other t-shirt companies. Those distinctions are:

  1. Partnership – Maximizing business relationships with local small businesses & organizations while building trust
  2. Community focus – Annual support of nonprofit organizations nationwide (i.e. Relay for Life, Dashing through the Square, and The Pink Auction)
  3. Providing unique and timeless rhinestone designs

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
The road for entrepreneurs is definitely not an easy road. Initially, the creation of a consistent customization model to bring customer visions to life was extremely challenging. We spent a lot of time, resources & money to come up with the right pricing structure for custom orders. Once we were able to get a handle on the pricing, we began to have issues with keeping up with demand! Our goal is to deliver great products at great prices, in a timely matter.

More recent opportunities that we’ve seen would be determining seasonal changes in the business, being able to find the right vendors that can deliver what they promise, and being viewed as an important partner.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Life Notes – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
We are best known for our quality customized rhinestone t-shirt designs inspired by culture, faith, fashion or our customers own words. Our designs are trendy, yet unique…fun, expressive and inspiring.

We are very proud of our 46% annual growth, development of key industry partnerships and our ability to support charity while growing the business.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
It’s been said that, “The company you start today is not necessarily the company you will be in the future.” We are scaling our business for larger corporate partnerships, expanding our product line and introducing product bundles. In the very near future we’ll be providing custom and stock rhinestone templates. It’s an exciting time for us and we are looking forward to the continued growth of our business.
