    #Nomadness #FaceYourBrand Profile #14: Kristal Nic

    1. Name : Kristal Nicholson

    2. Company name: CoveredMom.com

    3. Location (City, State): Phoenix, AZ

    4. Year Company Was Started: 2013

    5. Website Address/Social Media Handles for Twitter And/Or Instagram: www.coveredmom.com

    6. In 2 sentences what does your company do/brand represent? 

    CoveredMom.com produces quality covers for nursing mothers, to make feeding times with baby private and luxurious. The company was founded as a way to give back to breast cancer research by donating a portion of each sale to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and to encourage new mothers to breast feed.

    7. Pro of being the face of your own brand?

    I have really enjoyed the opportunity to create something unique, to watch it grow, and to be associated with quality products, and a cause that I am truly passionate about. 

    8. Con of being face of own brand?

    It seems like I am always busy, and there are a million small details that only I can set in motion. I have found that most of my friends are extremely supportive, but I feel like I am alone because there are no clear cut instructions on how to proceed, and I am only person that can make the important decisions, and initiate all company actions. 

    9. Mental Mentors (up to 3, Who inspires you?) 

    1. Amelia Earhart, not just for her courage to get out into the world, and attempt great feats, but for her courage to do it alone. 

    2. Barak Obama, for his pride, intellect, candor, and his ability to calm the masses with a single sentence.

    10. Inspirational quote that speaks to your business acumen:

    My great uncle used to say "No bees, no honey. No work, no money!"  

    “Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.”  -Martin Luther King

    11. How does the mission of Nomadness (living a life without boundaries, both literally and figuratively) fall in line with steps you have taken building your brand? 

    The only boundaries that surround me are the ones I create for myself in my head. I sat on this idea for 5 years before seizing the opportunity to create this business. Being the face of my brand means that I own all responsibilities that have an influence on my own success. If I stop when I come to a difficult task then I become trapped and cannot move forward. Now that I have begun, I cannot stop. Once I made the decision to move forward, I broke through the mental boundary that held me back for 5 years. My daily goals are to continue moving forward. To continue creating. To continue growing. To continue improving. To find inspiration, and get faster and better at what I do, so that I can complete all tasks, and break through all boundaries. For me, there is no limit. not even the sky, & with God's grace, I can fly.

    6. In two sentences what does your company do/brand represent?

    Diosas al Natural  is the vessel of the Natural Hair Movement in Puerto Rico.  Using photography as our creative medium, we’ve started the conversation in Spanish about culture, beauty, and community amongst women with Naturally Curly/Coily hair on the island and throughout Latin America.

    7. Pro of being the face of your own brand?

    When people hear your name, they visualize the space/brand that you have created.  That is powerful and proof of your purpose!

    8. Con of being face of own brand?

    You always have to be ON. While you are human, your actions can taint or boost your image, for better or for worse.

    9. Mental Mentors (up to 3, Who inspires you?)

    Issa RaeDebbie Allen Mark Cuban.  Those are the 3 that come to mind.  I may say 3 different names tomorrow!  I’m breaking the rules, but I will add Alice Smith to that line-up as well.

    10. Inspirational quote that speaks to your business acumen 

    These 2 quotes, both my Mark Cuban

    Sweat equity is the most valuable equity there is. Know your business and industry better than anyone else in the world. Love what you do or don't do it.

    One thing we can all control is effort. Put in the time to become an expert in whatever you’re doing. It will give you an advantage because most people don’t do this.

    11. How does the mission of Nomadness (living a life without boundaries, both literally and figuratively) fall in line with steps you have taken building your brand? 

    Bringing along new ideas and challenging the status quo will be met with both praise and venom.  After grasping that idea and accepting it, I (along with my partner) am able to imagine and put into action events & projects that I visualize as appropriate for my brand and those who I do this for.  Anyone who isn’t contributing in a productive manner to the vision doesn’t phase me and won’t stop the grind!
