We had the good fortune of connecting with Shawndra Flores and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Shawndra, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking

Risk-taking is a topic every aspiring entrepreneur needs to be comfortable with. Starting a company is a huge risk because no one can be certain if it will be successful. Embrace the risk and find those special opportunities because daring to be different will set you apart from the pack. By willing to take leaps of faith, our business has grown faster and stronger than I could have ever imaged it would be.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
We are a professional grade glitter company that provides all crafters and lovers of glitter, with top quality products. We have a patent pending concept called, Wildflower Glitter Bar. Our customers have the ability to build their own custom glitter blend, and watch us make it on a live feed or in person with a fun and interactive experience. This feature sets us apart because customers now have the ability to stray away from preselected colors and mixes and also enjoy the live entertainment that comes with mixing the products during our shows! We are blessed with the growth of our business. Revealing our struggles and celebrating our milestones has created a bond with our audience and fostered a tight-knit community full of wonderful and creative individuals.

I have learned many lessons. However, the biggest lessons learned has been with my personal growth from this journey of becoming a successful female business owner. I have grown an incredible strength and confidence, which feeds into our business. Being bold and not being afraid of wearing your heart on your sleeve is a huge lesson to learn when growing a business because by doing this, you are establishing a connection with your customers.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Hands down, I would take my best friend to the stockyards! The entire vibe of the stockyards is everything I love about Fort Worth. On the weekends there is live music and good times wherever you go! We have to hit the Love Shack for some tunes, and go to H3 for dinner because their burnt ends are amazing! Another really fun spot is the Shannon Brewery! They have live music, food trucks, and amazing craft beer!
