Cinnaryn is an online boutique whose owner is a girl boss, like I know many of you are (or want to be)!
The owner ,Melissa Hebbe, is a 25 year old working in marketing and graphic design while juggling her own online business since October 2016. I was able to shoot some of my favorite pieces from the shop, and chat with Melissa about what it’s like to run an online fashion boutique.
What made you decide to take over an online fashion boutique/what drew you to selling clothing?
My first job out of college was a mix of graphic design and e-commerce. I fell in love with both worlds. From there, I started working as a marketing consultant for Cinnaryn, which was started by my cousin, and my position basically grew from there!
What’s the hardest part of running your own business?
Definitely the balance. I love running Cinnaryn so much that sometimes I need to remind myself that it’s ok to take a break and watch some Netflix or go out to dinner.
What’s your favorite part of being a girl boss?
My favorite part is the community. I’ve met so many awesome business owners over the past few years and it’s amazing how much strength and courage each business owner has. I love connecting with other business owners!
Any trends you are excited for this fall?
Yes, fall is my favorite season! I’m looking forward to wearing my chunky sweaters and of course pulling out those autumn colors, especially burgundy.
Do you have any advice for girls thinking of running their own business?
There is never going to be a perfect time to start your own business, so just start. Don’t wait until you nailed your business plan or perfected your website. Those things are going to change over time anyway, so just start your business and keep at it.
