"We are learning new things every day but we have fun. We are strong believers in the importance of surrounding yourself with people who support your dreams and missions in life. " - MARALYT & ELIZABETH, Owners, Sweet Endings
Maralyt & Elizabeth met through church. Maralyt was working for broker @ Keller Williams Heritage & Elizabeth was working at a children's daycare. Maralyt was doing client care & Elizabeth was making lotion bars for her friends. The two attended the course Quantum Leap (whose mission is to “To provide learning experiences for our youth that inspire big thinking, model wealth-building, and instill a passion for generous giving”) and after the course the two decided it was time to live a purposeful life and really go after there dreams. Maralyt & Elizabeth partnered & fused there ideas together to create Sweet Endings.
There have been many difficulties, from time managment (both full time college students), finding the perfect items for our gifts, & creating a company we both LOVED. We are learning new things every day but we have fun. We are strong believers in the importance of surrounding yourself with people who support your dreams and missions in life. From the beginning, it was always important that our company (no matter what the size) would impact the lives of others, and for that reason we decided that 10% of each sale would go to helping others. We chose Donors Choose, which aids classrooms across the nation gain access to a greater education.
