Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in jewelry but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Jack Chen, Founder of Avail Jewelry, located in San Bernadino. ON, Canada.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
We are an affordable unisex jewelry brand that aims to be a budget-friendly alternative to all the expensive name brands. We believe everyone should be able to wear high-quality jewelry and experience luxury at any cost.
Tell us about yourself
I was always fascinated by fashion accessories from a young age, but due to not having grown up with a lot of wealth, I always wished there was a brand that could not only provide the affordability I was looking for but also still provide great quality products. That is what inspired me to start Avail Jewelry.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
I believe my biggest accomplishment so far is creating this small community of people that believes in Avail as a brand; it's comforting to know that there are people who believe your vision out there.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
I think for any business, the hardest thing is the beginning; it's always going to be a slow burn to build up that customer relation and get our name out there.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
I think the first tip is just to start; no matter how thought out or good the idea is, over the course of doing, you will naturally figure out the proper next steps. Tip two would be to be proactive; what is something you can do every day to elevate your business? Even if it's minuscule, it should be done daily. The last time would be to be in good faith, sometimes, we do all that we can, and we just have the patience to let it all play out.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
I want everyone out there to believe in their dreams and passions and put action behind it all.
