Interview with Gloria founder of The Mantilla Company

Although running a business can be challenging, I have customers and their trust in my business helps me live my dream.

mantilla44What inspired you to start your business?
I’ve always wanted to start a business to be my own boss, have flexibility with my time and have full creative control over branding. The perfect opportunity arose when I relocated from Florida to Ohio with my husband. Unable to find a job that utilized my design skills, I took a leap of faith and started an online business.

What is the brand’s philosophy?
My online business caters to brides. Getting married is truly one of life’s happiest moments and since it is (generally) a once-in-a-lifetime event, it is my number one goal to make sure every bride is 100% happy with their purchase. I do this by finding the best quality Spanish lace veils at affordable prices and treating every customer as if they were my own friends getting married.

What has been your greatest achievement so far?
I’ve found it so rewarding to have created a business, put it out there and have people respond positively to it! When I first started, I only knew how to make a business “look pretty” through my basic photography skills and graphic design background. I put in hours of sweat equity to learn how to start and run a business, build a website and market it online. Although running a business can be challenging, I have customers and their trust in my business helps me live my dream.
