How it started...When quarantine hit, I was bored just like everyone else. I ended up getting a job about 2 months into quarantine & I quickly started saving my money up to invest it into something greater. During this time, I didn't know what I wanted to do I just knew I wanted to start my own business. While trying to figure things out, I came across another phone case business on TikTok & at that moment I knew I wanted to learn more about making phone cases. From there I started my research, saved up a ton of money & invested it into Mariposa Customs. Let me just tell you, it was the best decision ever & I have no idea where I would be if I didn't open TikTok on August 11, 2020. This is because not long after, on October 20, 2020, Mariposa Customs was born!The picture above was taken right before I took some of my very first orders to the post office in October 2020.
How it's going...
I started Mariposa Customs with 2 main goals, saving for college and helping out my mom financially. Since I opened up my business I have been helping my single mom pay bills while setting aside money for college. My main goal was to attend Texas A&M University starting Fall of 2021. I can now say that I have achieved that goal & I am now the Loudest and the Proudest member of the Fightin' Texas Aggies Class of 2025! I am extremely blessed and thankful for everyone who has supported my journey. Mariposa Customs has come a very long way, we have shipped over 1,000 orders and have reached each of the 50 states in the US. I strive to continue to grow my small business with the help of my supporters, I can proudly say I have the best group of customers & supporters. With all that said, I would like to thank every single one of you! Whether you have purchased or not, you play a huge factor in the success of my small business and I am forever grateful.
