We had the good fortune of connecting with Sakari Sanders and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sakari, is there a quote or affirmation that’s meaningful to you?
“Never A Failure , Always A Lesson” Life as an entrepreneur will come with many situations that may not turn out how we expected . It could be a simple as hiring the wrong employee to ordering a large amount of inventory from a bad manufacturer. In both instances business owners would typically look it as a failure however I switched my mindset to labeling negative situations as lessons instead of failures. Your journey as a business owner will come with a lot of lessons , it is your responsibility to take from those lessons and apply them to future situations to come out on top. Without this mindset you will loose money , waste time , and honestly in my opinion you will not deserve the title of BOSS.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
ByLeCreme Home is an online home boutique. Our collections are specifically curated to meet the needs of consumers who love to mix eclectic style with modern decor, pop art with glamour, or simply chic paired with the latest trends in the market. Our mission is to inspire and cultivate positive energy through furniture, lighting and decor in the home or workplace. We sell mid and high-end furniture. We provide design services and customized private label soy candles. We are most known for our soy candles which are hand-poured here in Atlanta. Bylecreme Home has been in business since 2013. What sets ByLeCreme Home apart from other furniture stores is that we are boutique style. Although we have access to many selections, our website is not flooded with every option available. We provide an exclusive “shop small” experience. I am most proud of our three ebooks released during the 2020 global pandemic. After being in business for over 6 years I decided to create ebooks to fill the void of mentorship in my profession. Six years as a business owner with no mentor has not been easy. The success has certainly come with several mistakes, but I have immensely learned from all I have experienced. Instead of watching others make these same mistakes, I decided to compile all of those positive lessons to teach entrepreneurs how to successfully open and run a business in both the furniture/design and candle industry. Each ebook provides insight, mentorship and vendor access. I have sold over 1000 ebooks in less than a year, but the biggest reward is helping hundreds of entrepreneurs grow in business.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I am a homebody , but when friends are in town I love to show them a good time! Catch us where ever a good vibe is. I love to visit new restaurants , local art shows, and hookah lounges.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I give my daughter all the credit. She makes me grind harder, think smarter and move faster. All that I do is for her. I work hard so that I can provide her with the resources to accomplish anything her heart desires.
