We had the good fortune of connecting with Arianna Baker and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Arianna, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
Gloss Babes is a business based out of Grand Rapids Michigan, by a mother Arianna Baker setting her daughters up for success. Co owners Avah & Arabella, started at the ages of two & five year old entrepreneurs. We started off just selling vegan homemade kid luxury lip gloss & added clothes & accessories to our inventory. Our goal is to offer fashionable products to all of our young customers at affordable prices.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I am most excited about watching my girls grow with their business, their ideas and love for their brand at a young age encourages me and motivates me as a parent and in everyday life. I look forward looking back and seeing how far they came from the very beginning. Today we grew a lot from where we started, trial & error made us to where we are, we will continue to strive for the very best in our brand. I learned that being a business owner isn’t easy and you have to keep on going to reach your goals, some days are harder than others, trying to maintain and grow and keeping the girls focused on what I know they will be very proud of as they grow into young adults.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If we are in Grand Rapids, MI. I’d likely take my best friend to the Chophouse a very elegant steak house, walk downtown on the historic blue bridge over the water. JW Marriott also has one of the best spa’s, can’t go wrong with a spa day.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I dedicate my shoutout to my two daughters Avah & Arabella, I wanted to start them up at a young age for success with a business of their own to grow as they get older and eventually take over their selves. Without their love, effort & support, this business would of never been thought of.
