All Natural Cosmetics by Stephana!
Hi Lovely People!
My name is Stephana. I started this gofundme page for more reasons than the obvious. Not only am I in need of start up capital, but I also need a launching pad for this business I've been working on for the last three years.
As far back as I can remember I have dreamed of owning my own business. I remember my sister and I selling friendship bracelets and lemonade on the street corner as elementary kids! I have tried many businesses after studying entrepreneurship in college and all have been learning experiences that eventually died out. At some point in my many attempts, I became discouraged and gave up on the idea of becoming a successful business owner. But recently, my dream of owning a business has resurfaced. More than ever I want to reach for the things I’ve dreamed of in order to have no regrets in life.
So, here I go....
Today I am excited to present Treasure by Stephana!
I have created a line of all natural products for your skin and hair. Personally, I have sensitive skin and found that most over the counter products dried my skin out or created more acne and scaring. When all natural and organic products came on the market, I found that I was unable to afford them, but they worked well and I got the results I was looking for. To solve the problem I was in, I started researching ingredients and making my own. I found that the products I was making actually worked just as good, if not better and cost way less for me to make.
I have shared some of my products with friends and family and now they cannot live with out them. Others can see so much potential in this venture and won't let me give up on it. At this point there is one thing that is holding me back... money. Recently I have taken on a second job to cover bills and save for the business, but I can't do it alone. With your financial support, I will be able to:
· Register business in Washington state
· Purchase labels and promotional materials
· Launch the website
· Purchase ingredients and jars in bulk
· Start on the makeup line
· Host a product reveal party
One of my favorite quotes is an African Proverb that says this.
If you want to go fast, go alone.
If you want to go far, go together.
With this in mind I know that I can't do this alone. It is the love and support of many that have gotten me to this point so far. However you able to support me is sincerely appreciated.
My thanks to your support!

I am so grateful for the outpour of love and support I have received so far from all of you.
Because of your generous support so far, I have been able to register my business in Washington State and purchase all my ingredients and supplies needed to set up my website!
I have also registered to be a vendor at a local event coming up in April! Each week I can see the progress being made and am confident I will have my website up and running by this summer.
Thanks again for all your support!
