Hidden Gems: Meet Alejia Maxwell and Aniaya Jamerson of Minks N Kisses Luxuries

Today we’d like to introduce you to Alejia Maxwell and Aniaya Jamerson.

Hi Alejia and Aniaya, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
Minks N Kisses Luxuries was launched September 19, 2020. We had been planning it since the beginning of January, gaining knowledge on how to own a business and becoming young entrepreneurs and soon expanded.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Some obstacles we faced was slow clientele. There had been times where we went weeks without receiving orders. Another obstacle was school and time. It was difficult trying to figure out how to manage a business with school and other outside activities.

We’ve been impressed with Minks N Kisses Luxuries, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
A lot of people find it surprising that is owned by two 16-year-olds. Especially since we specialize in making skin care products such as body scrub, body butter, body oil, lipgloss, lip scrub, and we also sale lashes. Something that sets us apart from others is how professional and honest we are. We care about our customers and business wouldn’t want anything bad going on anyone’s body or being lied to about what’s in our products/getting put on your body.

We are most proud of how far we have come. We are typically the ones reaching out for opportunities and now we have all these opportunities reaching out to us! We would want readers to know that our products are far beyond better than chemicals that are in regular lotions, scrubs & lipgloss and we add a lot of love and dedication to what we do. I would also want to let them know our motto “Never to young to start an empire. Never to young to chase a dream.”

What has been the most important lesson you’ve learned along your journey?
The most important lesson I learned is to be patient. I say this because we were so anxious to get our name out there and have our products and business well known when in reality, it takes some time & a little more hard work. And your time will come.
