It’s another glorious Friday! And it’s time for us to highlight more amazing black entrepreneurs! In Where You Should Be Spending Your Money, we showcase the various businesses available in our community that we can support to inspire you to cycle your very important and all-powerful dollar amongst people that look like you and have YOU in mind. Today’s feature is SHE by Schericka!
IHTG: Tell us a little about yourself (hometown, family life, etc.).
My name is Schericka Gee and I’m the brand owner of S.H.E. by Schericka, an empowerment brand. I’m from a small town called Bennettsville, SC and I’m a mom to a gorgeous and ambitious 7-year-old daughter named Landyn Kardia. I’m a true lover of fashion and philanthropy. My ultimate objective is simply to be a vessel used to encourage others.
IHTG: What motivated you to start this business?
I was motivated to start SHE because I wanted a business where it was more a catalyst used to unite us as women and encourage us to be greater in all aspects of our lives.
IHTG: Tell us about your business (what product or service do you offer, your typical customer, etc.).
The brand offers: tees, totes, earrings, candles, nail polish, bracelets, pillows, scented wax melts, coffee mugs, sweathoodies, dresses, hats, and leggings. I hope I didn’t forget anything. Lol. I also have other divisions called #SHEbrands and #SHEspeaks. One for branding assistance to other businesses, the other for motivational speaking.
IHTG: How does your business give back to the community?
I love working with local community philanthropists holding giveaways and charity givebacks.
IHTG: What advice would you give to someone considering starting a business?
The best advice I’d love to offer to any aspiring entrepreneur would be to always be authentically you in your business and always run your business in your truth.
IHTG: What is the best advice you’ve received since starting your business?
The best advice I’ve ever been given is to remain consistent and to always remain humble.
