Today we’d like to introduce you to Chanté Gernertt.
Chanté, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Sure! So, I launched my brand last March 2017! I randomly had the thought of doing it and just sort of went for it. I started with only about $200 that I put into my brand. I ordered packaging, supplies, built a website on my own during downtime at work, had a friend help me with graphic design and launched two weeks later! Today, it’s held in over 30 stores, in 10 different states and basically, how I did that was just creating a good social media presence, being bold and reaching out to retailers and also asking my followers if they wanted to see us in many locations! Social media is huge and I feel like it has done so much for me and my business!
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Oh, of course not, is any road smooth? Because point me in that direction! Some of the struggles, I would say have definitely been trying to stay motivated. It’s hard for sure when some days you just want to binge watch on Netflix or don’t really know what you’re even doing. It’ all been a learning process for sure but I wouldn’t want to change anything, there isn’t anything that I wish I would have known!
Please tell us about Roses N Rosé.
So, we are a small business based out of San Diego specializing in skin and body care! We are known for our three most popular items, our Rosewater Face Mist, our Rosie Cheeks coffee-based body scrub and our Smooches, cinnamon lip plumping lip scrub as seen by RHOBH Teddi Mellencamp! Something I am most proud of my brand is… how far it has come, it has allowed me to leave my job and focus on what I love doing.
If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
Honestly, nothing. I would have maybe pushed a little more at the beginning with influencer marketing, but for the most part nothing really. I love everything that I have learned, if I knew this all when I started, I don’t think I would be here, it’s all about learning!
