What makes you unique in your industry?
Here at pretty scrubs we are most unique in my eyes because as a medical professional and or any profession that requires scrubs look for quality and comfort . With all shapes and sizes that means are comfort levels are different right ? We fill in that need for comfort.
Please share you top 3 most proud accomplishments to-date:
PSBJS was established 12/7/2020 with not one stitch of uniform finished . 3/2020 we had 100 sets on hand locked in loaded . The goal was to have compression socks added to store by fall winter . as of today we have had compression socks since 7/2021. We're growing more and more and will have more products added .
Any advice to other women in your industry?
My advice would be to not be anxious but TRUST god and be patient and kind with yourself. It doesn’t happen over night but god is the source . Do your research and learn all aspects of your business.
