Angelic Things is a women's boutique clothing store owned by Angel Bradley. After determination, hard work, and prayers Bradley grew her business from the trunk of her car, to 2 tables, to a kiosk, and now a new store inside of Marketplace Mall. As a former bus driver, Bradley took a leap of faith and gave her two weeks notice. "Now I am opening my own store," says Bradley.
“I wanted to make extra money, and I always wanted to work for myself. So, I started selling stuff on Facebook, making lip-gloss and meeting people to sell them clothes. After working full-time for one week with my business I realized that I could make more selling my products than I made at my job. My husband was very supportive and kept motivating me to keep growing. He told me to just trust in God and take a chance.
Then, I went to an event in the mall about starting a business, so I took what I learned and networked with other business owners in the mall, and prepared myself to open my own store in the Marketplace Mall.
I give all Glory to God, I prayed a lot. Without him, nothing would be possible.
What would you tell a child to motivate them?
“If you want to do something, DO IT. Go for anything that you want to do. I made the mistake of seeing other people doing things that I had thought of, and getting discouraged and would not do it. Please, don’t make that mistake, you do it too! Keep working at it and pray.” says, Bradley.
