We spoke to Seals about what inspired her entrepreneurial journey and her plans.
How did you get your idea or concept for your business?
My granny passed in 2010 and I was devastated, furthermore, severely depressed. She was a staple client at local boutiques, and I loved shopping with her! She influenced the fashion culture, always receiving invitations to upscale events. Everyone was anxious to see what Ida Mae was wearing and to know the designer of her outfits.
At the age of 12, I was selected to be a member of the Goldsmith’s Teen Board in my hometown. I modeled the latest fashion on the runway during our monthly fashion shows and, styled the mannequins inside the store. I always had a passion for fashion and, when she passed, I wanted to carry on that legacy.
How do you advertise your business?
I advertise my business via hosting events, social media, sponsoring events, influencers, etc.
To what do you attribute your success?
I attribute my success to seeing a successful entrepreneur in action daily, my grandfather. He takes care of his family and endures the daily ins and outs of entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship has its ups and downs; Sometimes you laugh, scream, cry and enjoy the ride.

You wear many hats, so which role is the most stressful?
Human resources can be the most stressful hat to wear. Unfortunately, others do not have a work ethic that matches mine and, understand that a team must be in sync to meet the outlined goals. I am a stern but a fair leader that believes in accountability and dealing with problems head-on. Most of my team has been with me for five years and counting, so this is an amazing time for the company.
