Today we’d like to introduce you to Lisa Harrison.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
In 2019 myself and my son decided to make a drink for a birthday party called the “birthday bowl”. This bowl was made for the guest of honor and specific to their taste in drinks (light, dark, sweet, strong, etc). It was such a huge hit we made it a tradition to make them for family and friends on their birthday. With no worries, if you were not a drinker, we also do nonalcoholic versions and even CBD versions for people with therapeutic and medicinal needs. People started requesting the drinks and we would tell them we don’t sell the drinks just give them as a birthday gift, everyone would say “I would pay for that”. We then made a few cases and let everyone know we had them for sale. We were completely sold out in less than an hour with multiple requests still coming in. At that time, we know we were on to something special. In 2020 as the pandemic hit, we were then asked to do a pop-up shop and this opened up a new world to us. We began to get calls for all kinds of events (baby showers, weddings, cookouts, birthday parties, dinners, etc.) At this time, we expanded our products and added cake jars, gummies, and brownies. In 2021 we fully branded ourselves and started hosting pop-up shops and helping new up-and-coming entrepreneurs showcase their products and expand their business. PS, we make each and every product one by one and by hand, we absolutely love what we do.
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?
The road was most definitely not a smooth one. As others have tried to imitate our products, even tried to take our name. The trial and error with jars, labels, and lids alone had us literally pulling our hair out lol. With covid, everyone was trying to make a quick buck so the market became overwhelming and definitely oversaturated. It became stressful but stopping or slowing down was never an option.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I am an advocate!!! I advocate for people with developmental disabilities and traumatic brain injuries. I’m also an advocate for people who have been trafficked. I am known for speaking up especially for someone who can’t physically speak for themselves. I specialize in life after trauma care. I’m most proud that in 2022 It will make 20 years of service in my field. The thing that set me apart from others is that what I do is my passion and I will always speak up.
What quality or characteristic do you feel is most important to your success?
I’m compassionate, very truthful, I love to help others, I’m a hard worker and a great listener. I love to learn something new every day.
