Meet Carolyn Le Founder of Simply Southern Baubles is a handstamped and handmade jewelry line made with love in North Carolina.
1 | Tell me about your company… What does your company do?
Simply Southern Baubles is a jewelry company that specializes in custom made, personalized, dainty pieces. Perfect for any minimalist!
2 | How long have you been in business or developing your brand?
I’ve been in business and developing my brand since June of this year and I hope to see my brand grow for many more years to come!
3 | What are some challenges you have faced being an entrepreneur?
The biggest challenge I have faced as an entrepreneur is patience. I tend to get discouraged but starting a business is no easy task. I found that practicing patience will increase my ability to reach success. I have to remind myself to remain calm during the big and small twists and turns that come with owning my own business. When we’re impatient, we’re unable to work toward our business goals in a dedicated fashion which then leads to quitting and NOBODY likes a quitter!!
4 | How much has social media impacted your business?
Social media is a great way to market your brand and plays a huge part in business. Majority of my traffic comes from Instagram and Facebook so social media has impacted my business tremendously.
5 | What motivated you to take the leap and launch your jewelry brand?
I’ve always love making jewelry and through encouragement and support from my husband, I left my cushy corporate job and took the leap to launch Simply Southern Baubles. I also have amazing friends and family who continuously encourage me day in and day out.
6 | What advice can you give to your fellow millennial entrepreneurs?
Stay dream driven! Dreams inspire people to set goals and to strive. Whatever your dream may be, use it as motivation to change it from a “dream” to reality!! & yes, staying motivated wanes over time because maybe you’re not seeing progress but that is why staying focused is not only important, it’s crucial. Create milestones that will help you move towards reaching your dreams without losing your focus. For example, set a monthly goal or even a weekly goal. It’ll help you stay on track as you continue to reach for that long-term goal. Hold tight to your dreams, and once you reach them share your vision to inspire others!
7 | What is your favorite piece from your line? Why?
I honestly don’t have a favorite piece because I love every product that I create. I put so much work & heart into my pieces that not one bauble means more to me than the other. This is also the number one reason why I create pieces that can be layered and be worn together! (No baubles left behind!!)
8 | Who is your biggest influencer or inspiration?
I have met and worked with many amazing people so it’s hard to pick just one. I’m a big fan of Lauryn Evarts of The Skinny Confidential and if it weren’t for her private readers group I would not have met and worked with these amazing people!!
9 | Do you have any promos that Bossfidence Babes can use to get your jewelry this holidays season?
I am having on a flash sale sometime in the next few weeks but I will also be holding a KILLER sale for Black Friday and Cyber Monday! Make sure to follow our social handles to stay in the loop!!
