Welcome to Makin’ it w/Malene B!
I always start off the new year with a theme and this year's theme is “Embracing Sankofa”, looking at our past in order to propel ourselves forward. I started my business 8 years ago with a simple idea to make beautiful carpets. I didn't take a loan or seek investors, I used my own money to build and grow my business, and continue to do so. At a young age, my mother, like most Caribbean parents, taught my sisters and I how to be resourceful. This lesson has proven to be valuable throughout my life and I want to inspire you to do the same. I think back to the days when I was the queen of DIY and realize how much that has shaped who I am today. I’ve chosen to make it my own way and you can do the same; be successful in your life, business and/or career in your own way. In my new series “Makin it w/Malene B”, I will share design ideas, healthy recipes, places to visit, DIY projects and more in an effort to inspire you to be resourceful and make it your own way.
