Introduce yourself and profession to our readers: I am Curtia Moon, owner of MXK Events and Weddings located in Alexander City, Alabama. I, also own Ladybossprenuer, a online boutique and Women’s Empowerment brand.
What inspired you to pursue this area of interest? With MXK Events I’ve always loved to plan and decorate so when my friends and family have upcoming events they would always ask me to handle it for them so after several events people would ask how much would I charge to assist them so that’s how I started.
Now with Ladybossprenuer it was a mix of never being able to find the type of clothing I love to wear in stores in my town since I live in a small area the nearest mall is over an hour away so I wanted to curate a small collection of signature staple and classic pieces for my community to have access to.
The Ladybossprenuer Women’s Empowerment brand is an extension of the boutique because being in a small area I’m always asked how do you do all you do, stay motivated with a family, what’s the secret so I created a Signature event, A Seat at the Table to discuss it. I wanted to inspire other ladies to get out and achieve those goals and ambitions. Some of us are bosses and entrepreneurs but we are all Ladies so thus, Ladybossprenuer to cover everyone!
What advice would you share with those interested in a similar pursuit? For both businesses I would say connect with someone that does it the way you envision your brand to look and be upfront and honest that is what you are looking to do in the future. Intern with them and allow them to mentor you.
Discuss a professional challenge and how you overcame it: I still work a full time job as well so creating boundaries and systems are becoming my sanity.
What is next for your brand/business in 2018? For 2018 I am currently rebranding MXK Events we are adding more services for the business and with Ladybossprenuer we are taking, A Seat at the Table on the road and expanding the product line as well.
How can readers connect with you online and through social media: Whew this is a lot but bare with me!
