Small Business Spotlight with Mariah EL-Amin

Tell me about yourself…My name is Mariah EL-Amin. I am a mother and entrepreneur. I am the co-owner of Accessory Site Boutique located in Saginaw, MI. Accessory Site Boutique is a traveling boutique. I love what I do! I love styling and accessorizing. I love introducing people to something they never thought they would wear, never seen or thought they could afford. Even though I love what I do, I’m always on the lookout for new opportunities. I am a woman who has jumped back into finding who I am, what I want and learning what I need to do to get to where I want to be. I am learning more and more each day to trust God and his timing rather than my own. Mariah is learning to leave the past behind, not dwell in downfalls and love the new positive journey she’s on.
What motivates you to keep going? My children motivate me first. Telling myself that failure is not an option. My support system motivates me and pushes me. Knowing that God has my back no matter what. Being able to literally visualize the things I want and knowing that one day I won’t have to visualize anymore is what totally motivates me!
Do you feel your life is balanced between your personal and professional life?
I feel the balance between my personal and professional life can use some strengthening. The balance is getting better each day.
What advice would you give to an aspiring entrepreneur? My advice to aspiring entrepreneurs is first figure out what your passion is, what you love doing and think of a way to make that passion also become your income. Research and plan. Once you start do not stop. Don’t let what others may say or do discourage you from doing what you feel is right for you. If you don’t know how, learn to listen to God and let him guide you and you will notice that ideas, plans, goals, visions and so much more will just start to pour out of you where it will literally keep you up at night. If one plan derails, then come up with a new one. And finally, as hard as it may be, be selective of who you tell your dreams and goals with.
What’s your favorite social media platform? At this moment I have two, Facebook and Instagram. With Facebook, you are able to communicate with customers and/or fans more. With Instahram, you can share images more and create a large fan base.
What book are you currently reading or would recommend to fellow entrepreneurs?
I just started to read Act Like a Success Think Like a Success. I love it so far! You can sign up for the training that gives you assignments. And that’s awesome for me because it makes me sit down, think and do.
What’s your favorite app? RetailMeNot is my favorite app! I’m so happy I have it!
What’s your favorite Podcast account name? Honestly, I don’t have one. I have not started using Podcasts yet.
What’s your favorite Entrepreneur website/blog to visit? I don’t have a favorite blog or website. I’m still in the process of researching and seeing what’s out there to benefit me and our business. I will say that I have come to like www.entrepreneur.com. I have come across a couple others as well.
What’s your favorite quote? “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” – Phillipians 4:13

Tasheena showed up to my workshop and breezed through like a breath of fresh air! Wow she put the cherry on top of an already awesome morning.

She kept our attention every minute she was there and left us with knowledge and motivation. We were in GO mode when she left. Exciting, informative, awesome!
I would have her back again and again. Peace and Blessings.
