We had the good fortune of connecting with Chrisy Gonzalez and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Chrisy, every day, we about how much execution matters, but we think ideas matter as well. How did you come up with the idea for your business?
As a child I always knew I would become a Entrepreneur, although life was difficult for me and did not have clarity of how I will get there. Until one day I read a verse from the Bible Psalms 139:14 Fearfully and Wonderfully made, that day I understood when God created us he made of full of respect, reverence, honor and awe. From that moment I knew that whatever I did, I wanted to EMPOWER people, especially women. That they know that no matter where and what they been through, nothing is impossible for God and this is where my business Made With Wonders came about. That whenever they see this brand they will be reminded how WONDEROUS they are regardless of their past or current situation.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
So how did I step into Entrepreneurship? This all started in 2015 when I gave birth to my firstborn, my son, knowing the thought of going back to work would be difficult, so I moved forward with wanting to have more time with my baby. Using my experience of working in retail since the age of 14 , working myself up to management and really learning the business side I decided to take a HUGE STEP IN faith and launch as a entrepreneur.
I knew there was something special about “Made With Wonders” fast forward to a few years after and I am giving it shot, moving forward with the conviction of GOD. These past years have been invested in being a new mom, entrepreneurship, and educating myself to be where I am at today, with you. Yes it has been a rocky road, learning experience and incredible moments but I wouldn’t want it any other way. My success has been with God, perseverance and patients. Work hard for your dreams, because you are the only one working towards them.
Never forget WONDROUS!
