Today we’d like to introduce you to Natalie Choi.
Hi Natalie, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I always liked playing with slime and other sensory things like fidget gadgets. I begged my parents to start a slime business. They told me that I had to do research about how much the materials will cost, what website I should use, and how much time to make the products. They agreed to help me earn money by doing chores and saving up my birthday/holiday money. I also started my Slime business Instagram so I can follow other slimers. I also divided the tasks I needed help with. My brother in law who is a graphic designer, did the logo, my mom and sisters help me run social media, and also things that I could not do because I was only 11 when I started it.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
I didn’t know that slime melted a lot in the summer so some of the slimes I sold during the summer melted and was more liquid than it should be. Also, I have to wait for my mom to drive me to the post office to mail my orders. Sometimes supplies take a long time to come.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I make small batch slimes. I am proud of the fact that I have been able to donate some of my net profits for certain restocks to charities. I usually pick local children’s charities and I’m very proud that my donation is from my work. What sets me apart from others is that I always make a charitable donation, even if it is a small amount with the profits I make.
Can you tell us more about what you were like growing up?
I’m only 12 now, but I am funny but serious. I love art and anything creative. I like spending time with my three dogs and two cats!!!
