Bohemian Biz Spotlight

It's that time again!!! Our featured BBS today is Tomingo a.k.a. Mingz of Eclectic Creations. She's an amazing designer of bold and lively accessories that you will get noticed wearing, and I get the impression that Mingz' personality is quite bold and lively as well ;) Get to know more about this talented designer below and see just how refreshingly confident she is. Enjoy!

1. I won't ask your age, but what was your favorite t.v. show to watch growing up? Mr. Belvedere

2. What gave you the AUDACITY to start a business? I was tired of working for someone else. To be frank, and I love creating beauty.

3. Out of all the creative businesses you could have chosen to start, why did you choose Eclectic Creations? I choice Eclectic Creations because of my love for creations…Even though, I started designing jewelry there is so much more I plan to offer in the near future…

4. Lots of people want to be their own boss, however they don't understand that it really Is harder then it seems. What's your typical work day like? A typical work day?? WOW!
The easiest way to explain it is I work all day in my sleep and running errands.
I know in the beginning, I spent as much as 18 hours working on different projects for weeks.
I had to force myself on a work schedule, so now I am working from 7-10 p m (yeah! Right).

5. How do you find the strength to persevere when the challenges seem to outweigh the rewards? I believe in my talents and I think every challenge is some sort of reward, good or bad it is up to me to figure out the two.

6. What inspires you? Everything, I am inspired by the many of the fellow INDIES ladies. We love to travel and I have been across country twice, from South Carolina to Las Vegas and Mohave Desert
…so I find inspiration in others and through my travels as well.

7. What's your go to wine when it's time to unwind? :) My soft bed!

8. When it comes to the following words, what advice would you give?

Work: 24/7 all day everyday…
Self: (Open) To be open to new ideas is very important.
Life: Enjoy it…
Love: PEACE & Olive oil
Friends: Are for life…

9. I define a Bohemian Spirit as someone who is free, unique, and unafraid to make her own stamp on the world. Why are you a Bohemian Spirit?  For many of the same reasons, the universe has offered me infinite possibilities, the hardest thing for me to do is decided which star I am going to write my name on!
