Tell us a little bit about yourself and your entrepreneurial journey.
I live in Dallas, Texas with my husband JB and my three children Eli 11, Katja 13, and Alex 19. I do what most busy moms do; balance a busy work life with busy kid schedules. After a successful 20 year career in corporate direct sales, I decided to make a bold move and launch my own company. Needless to say, this was not an easy decision; it took a lot of prayer and a lot of courage to answer a call I felt I had within me. I longed for a way to be independent and not reliant on someone else for my future. I was also ready to find a way where I would stop sacrificing time with my family.
My journey started as a vision to empower women as entrepreneurs and to bring to life an exclusive product line. The concept was that both the business opportunity and the products had to offer up something more, something different. I wanted to create a boutique of products that made the connection between beauty and health inside and out. Imagining it was easy! Creating, testing, molding and launching were the difficult task. Mía Mariu opened the virtual doors for business in May of 2008.
