THE OMEGA QUEEN STORY
First and foremost let me introduce myself. My name is Joi, and I am the owner and operator of Omega Queen Boutique. Our online boutique launched on June 15th 2019 and has been steadily growing momentum. This is my 2nd business venture I've launched. My first business is a record label I started with my husband. But the difference is that I wanted Omega Queen to be 100% me. But we will discuss that in another blog. I first got the idea to launch my own online boutique while scrolling through Instagram one night. I came across a post from an account I follow. This woman runs her own successful business and is a certified life and business coach. She posted something about launching your own jewelry and accessory business using her starter kits. It intrigued me because I normally buy all my unique and Afrocentric accessories from her, and people are always asking me "where did you get those earrings?" So i figured I could share my love of unique jewelry and accessories with women who are like me. The only thing was, I had never ran an online store before and did not know where to start! I first got the idea to do this in February 2019. I launched June 2019. So I spent 4 months researching, researching and researching some more. Even though it hasn't been too long since I started, I like to look back and think to myself, "Yes Queen! You did that!" Which brings me to the name. Omega signifies me being the last born child in my family. It also signifies the fact that as a woman, everything is all on us. We are the end of the line for every aspect of life. Just think about it. Think about all the things you have put into motion that would not have been unless you made it happen. Think about all the struggles and adversity that you would not have been able to get through unless you made it possible. Our happiness, joy, triumphs, achievements and milestones would not have been acquired if it had not been up to us to acquire it. What James Brown say? "It's a man's world. But it wouldn't be nothing, without a woman or a girl." We are what makes this world go round and without us, there would be nothing. Queen, well its self explanatory. All women are queens. No matter where you're from, what color you are, who you worship or what job you do. Women are Queens period.  My goal is to build a brand that uplifts women. I want to create a movement with my brand that simply, but boldly states WE ARE QUEENS! I consider myself the Omega Queen of my life and family, and you should too! You are a Queen. Period. Stay blessed :)
