This month’s #WCW is Jonae Nicole of B.E. Shirts. I met Jonae through a mutual friend a few months ago. She was a vendor at my First Annual Goal Diggers Sip and Shop. She was also a vendor at my Second Annual Goal Diggers Brunch. Jonae exudes nothing but positive and supportive energy. We have only known each other for a few months, but she has stepped up and has supported me through various amounts of things, in such a short period of time. I love being around people like her because of what she brings to the today as far as being positive, supportive, and loving. She is extremely sweet and she inspires me to be GREAT. Her Women’s Empowerment T-Shirt line represents her so well. You all have to check it out! I wanted to showcase Jonae because she is the epitome of Women’s empowerment, women’s empowerment is about the support and love you give to others and yourself. Someone who is willing to put themselves first before others. She has been in business for less than a year, but I believe her brand is unique, and she has set the bar high! I am truly inspired by Jonae and wanted to acknowledge her, and of course, show off her brand! B.E. Shirts is a brand you want to remember now because soon everyone will be rocking one! All shirts Jonae has on in each picture are apart of her B.E. shirts line. Check out her website at www.BEshirts.co
Now let me introduce you all to Jonae Nicole of B.E. Shirts
So Jonae, may you give me a few details about yourself?
Tell me about your company B.E. Shirts and what it means to you.
B.E. Shirts is a women’s graphic tee line that exalts and promotes women’s empowerment. Our slogan is “Be Elevated. Be Empowered. Be Everything.” This a company that wants to let women know there is nothing we cannot be and there is nothing we cannot do. We can do so much if we stand united and empowered together.
I am a one-woman show right now so I do everything! Marketing, packing, shipping, drop-offs, all the above. I just made my 9-month mark since my official launch so everything is still new and budding, but I am excited about the direction everything is going.
Where did the idea of B.E. shirts come from?
Jonae has a “Brunch & PositiviTea” event coming up on Sunday, June 23rd. Click here to get your tickets, they are only $18!
So, your event Brunch and Positivitea is coming up soon, give us a little “tea” on your event.
Brunch & PositiviTea is an event that will be comprised of networking, female fellowship, and an open forum “Queen Talk” (my play on “girl talk”) discussion. It was my own craving for positive feminine energy and daintiness that inspired me to coordinate & execute this event. I don’t think there are enough opportunities for us to be fancy, prissy, & beautiful. What better way to do all of those things than to have a tea party?! This event will be everything a girl wants: an opportunity to be Instagram-ably gorgeous & girly, receive/give empowerment, eat deliciously crafted brunch, & mimosas! Did I mention they are bottomless?! I want every beautiful woman that attends this event to leave empowered, uplifted, motivated, full of positive perspective, & hopefully sober enough to drive home! Lol, it’s going to be a great time!
The main theme of your event seems to empowerment. We all have experienced things in our life and it is always good to have people around to supporting and uplifting you. Did you face any adversities growing up, or even in your adulthood? If so, tell us about them and how you overcame them?
What are your short term and long term goals?
Short term goals: I want to become a better mother and wife everyday. I want to continue to build B.E. Shirts. Pursue and tackle any new positive opportunities that come my way. I plan to finish my first book soon. I also desire to execute my first women’s empowerment event in early 2019.
Long term goals: I desire to become a real estate investor, author, motivational speaker, mentor, serial entrepreneur, and mom-ventor.
Being an entrepreneur has its ups and downs, do you prefer a “9-5,” Entrepreneur life, or Both?
