Social eCommerce has opened up the door to many new thoughts and businesses. People who might not have imagined they would reach success have. One of those people is Doe Deere. Doe Deere immigrated to the United States from Russia. She had the kind of American spirit that shined through at all times.
She went to school, graduated, and got a job. Deere held jobs everywhere, but for the most part concentrated on administrative jobs. But there was something about the job sector that simply did not satisfy her. Deere wanted to do more with her life. She wanted to have a job that would allow her to be herself. Deere has always had a bombastic personality, and it shows through some of her style choices. But style was something that was stifled in her line of work before. It was clear to her that she did not fit in the jobs that she was taken and was ready for a change.
Sewing was something that she did in her spare time, and they were always interesting pieces with lively colors. She gathered up a reasonable following. Deere was surprised that so many people were connecting to her particular tastes. But she felt that something was missing in her clothes line, which was makeup. Deere just could not find makeup that matched her overall look. Every color lipstick that she found was dull and without real personality. In short, Deere felt that the makeup world was lacking something and was sort of dated.
The makeup would be natural, cruelty-free, and completely outside of the box. Deere started to model her own makeup and lipstick along with some of her clothes. The response that she got was beyond what she expected. There was an explosion of demand, and Lime Crime became a household name. Deere was finally able to let go of mediocre jobs that simply did not satisfy her inner-self and concentrate on something that made her happy.
If there is anything that Deere would pass on to her fans and to anyone who wants to start up a new business is that trying to do something that makes you happy is the right way to go.
