Today we’d like to introduce you to Brittney Seay.
Brittney, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I started Brittney and Pals for two main reasons: I saw the need for a balanced learning experience with children and also a need to emphasize moral character development as well. In today’s uber-connected society, everything is so fast-paced and technology-based, so I wanted to create a program where children can simply be a kid while learning in a unique way! I had a pen pal when I was an adolescent and I remembered how beneficial that was for me, so I decided to create that same experience in a more modern way! I believe that my program is really making a difference in the lives of children, one subscription at a time!
Has it been a smooth road?
I would say whenever you’re trying to do something different, the road is never smooth. Some struggles were probably getting people, particularly parents to truly understand why a balanced learning experience is important without offending anyone. No parent wants to feel like they aren’t doing a “good job” at parenting, so I have to tread lightly when explaining that technology has really taken over and that is why some children struggle with learning because they are so dependent upon technology. It is all worth it though because I genuinely believe in the process!
For other young women just starting their journey, just remember that as long as you believe in your products/brand, then everything else becomes irrelevant. You may get some “no’s”, but that is ok because it only takes one yes to change your life and push your brand to the forefront. Keep pushing, even on days, you feel like no one gets it.
We’d love to hear more about Brittney and Pals.
I specialize in subscription packages for children ages 2-12 & subscription boxes for teen girls, ages 13-18. I also conduct teen workshops for girls (Girl Chat) & storytime for young adolescents!
I am most proud of the impact that my business has had on children and teens. I remember being at an event with my teen subscription boxes and one of the young girls was looking at my sample boxes saying how cool these they were and she looked at me and said: “It’s like you know me through these boxes”. It was then that I realized that I was walking in my purpose! I am automatically set apart from others, because no one does subscription boxes and packages with letters that discuss moral character, that alone is a game-changer.
So much of the media coverage is focused on the challenges facing women today, but what about the opportunities? Do you feel there are any opportunities that women are particularly well-positioned for?
Yes, I always try to keep a positive mindset and think about positivity more than negativity. Opportunity is what you make it. You have to position yourself for opportunity by being around the right people who believe in what you have going and also you have to be the right person. I am big on moral character first. If your heart is good and in the right place, opportunities will always find you!
