Most of you know that I’ve been working on building a brand for the last two years and although it may not seem like much on the surface (yet), there’s a lot that goes into being a christian black woman who is working to become her own boss. So much so that I decided to document and share my behind the scenes experiences with all of you on YouTube! (Please watch the video above!)
Virtuous by Veronica is the vision of a brand God gave me in 2018—A blog/magazine & boutique dedicated to keeping God at the center while helping to build a community of virtuous women. Ever since 2018 things have been slowly but surely been coming together. Very SLOWLY, but surely.
It took a while for me to get in the habit of working and focusing on VBV consistently. For a long time it was put on the back burner because of my primary work schedule and lack of funds to invest the way I wanted to. In 2019 I became more financially stable but my mental health suffered and I was working 16 hour days to make ends meet. That left me with little time for anything else. I’m not going to say I’m thankful for the current pandemic because reportedly people are dying from it, however, I’m thankful for the time it has given me to gather my mental health and focus on what I want to do with my life. Prior to the pandemic I was running on empty most of the time. Now, in quarantine, I have time to rejuvenate my mind and plan my next moves.
I can definitely see a change within Virtuous by Veronica. Subscriptions and boutique purchases are increasing and there are more products and blogs available now than ever before on our web-page. More people are becoming aware of the virtuous lifestyle through Virtuous by Veronica. It’s starting to look more and more like the vision God gave me but there is still a long journey ahead of me.
I’m nervous but excited about sharing this you, but I hope you’ll enjoy the ride! Please be sure to subscribe to my YouTube to catch all of the behind-the-scenes footage of building the Virtuous by Veronica brand. Episode 1 is now available. If God can do it for Fashion Nova and Lilly Lashes, he can do it for me!!
