There are difficult situations in life that feel like a test because they subject people and leave them with a lesson. After overcoming them, usually the people find another approach to life and so the difficulty ends up being an opportunity.
“My business started as a result of a difficult episode I had to live, when my third son was interned in a hospital when he was just 15 months old after being diagnosed with a very lethal cancer. My husband and I stayed with him through eight months of treatment, giving up other jobs to dedicate our time to his battle. One month in, I realized I was pregnant for a fourth time. After three boys, this time it was going to be a girl, which was a dream come true for me. But I was very sad because of my son’s illness and I could barely celebrate the news.” Lyrian shares.
Lyrian spent her entire pregnancy in the hospital accompanying her son. She recounts that the only moments she had time for her pregnancy were those in which she sat down and created headbands for her daughter-to-be.
“My only moments to dedicate to my pregnancy happened when I sat down to create headbands for my daughter who was about to be born. I would create bracelets and hair accessories and that is how Heaven Bloom was born, a clothing brand for modern girls.” She explains.
Now that Lyrian’s son was able to overcome his illness, her family was able to surpass their biggest challenge and she has her four children healthy. She is living her success every day while growing and expanding Heaven Bloom.
“Success for me is being with my family, with the financial freedom to travel wherever we want and live wherever we want.” Lyrian adds.
But besides the difficult situation Lyrian was dealing with while launching Heaven Bloom, she also faced other business obstacles such as being able to find the key to making her clothing accessories distinct from all others.
“I believe that mindset is very important when starting a business. To have a business you must always have a positive mindset and not give up with the first difficulty.” Lyrian says, and advises, “My advice to people trying to start their own business or brand is: go for it, do not think about it too much and don’t let time go by.”
Today, Heaven Bloom offers a variety of girl clothing products including dresses, rompers, crop tops and more. Moreover, Lyrian is constantly updating her collection to provide more diverse products frequently.
Lyrian’s future projects include expanding Heaven Bloom to better position it in the industry and be able to distribute at the level she desires. Learn more here.
