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

Hi Whitney, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I created The Honey Kiss Collection by Whitney skincare line with myself and everyone who struggles with their skin in mind. I wanted to create an all natural, organic skincare line. I was tired of using over the counter and prescription skincare treatments that didn’t work or carried a lot of toxins that would over time become harmful to my skin. I haven’t had an acne breakout since i started. My skin tone is a lot more even and my dark spots faded. I was one of those women who wore makeup almost EVERYDAY. Since starting my skincare journey and seeing the progress I’ve only wore makeup twice. I knew when i started putting my plan in motion that I wanted my products to always be affordable and accessible no matter your budget. My business has been open since September 2020 and a lot of business owners would say they love seeing new customers of course I love my newbies to, but I love seeing my repeat customers the most, because that lets me know my products actually work and are helping people.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
The Honey Kiss Collection by Whitney, is an all natural skincare line. We pride ourselves on having quality skincare products at an affordable price. Our products contain all natural, vegan and organic ingredients, you can pronounce! Our products are handmade by myself everyday! I am most excited and proud about how my skincare products are literally changing people lives. We have helped customers with severe cases of acne, caused by health issues clear their skin up and find their confidence again. I get excited when I get pictures, emails or messages from customers who tell us our products have worked wonders for them, that’s what its all about.

At The Honey Kiss Collection you are treated like family! We take our customer service very seriously and make sure our customers are satisfied!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I want to dedicate my shoutout to my customers and my family!! I believe I have the best customers any business could have!! Small businesses thrive on word of mouth and i couldn’t have reached as many people in different states if it weren’t for my customers spreading the word to family and friends about my products!! I love and appreciate them all! My customers keep me encouraged and motivated!!

I also would like to dedicate my shoutout to my family. They let me test my products on them, and always give me constructive criticism about my products or business. They are always referring me, sharing my social media posts and encouraging me.

When raising a child people say it takes a village, I believe that to be true in running a small business as well!
