We had the good fortune of connecting with Emily Paxton and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Emily, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factor in starting my business would be my family’s support. They have helped financially here and there as well as physically and emotionally. Starting a. business has been a lot of up and downs so it’s good to have a support system behind you to push you through the bad days. My mom and sister have come with me to events when I need an extra hand and out up with me wanting it to all be perfect, so scant thank them enough for that. I don’t think I would have kept pushing my business or brand with out there help and support.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I think what sets me apart from others is I have a passion for creativity and DIY. I like to make sure everyone has something more personalized. Big or small, I think any touch of personalization makes people feel like you actually care. I try to make my parties look different in any way I can. I Custom make a lot of my stuff vs just buying generic items from amazon. Every day is an opportunity to learn and grow. I am always researching and learning how to make my business better. I have learned a lot in a short amount of time so I can’t wait to see where I am in another year or two. On the hard days its good to reflect and look back at where you started and see your growth. That gives me the push to keep going when I face an obstacle.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Arizona has a little bit of everything, from beautiful hikes to a crazy night life. If my friend came to visit I would take them to Sedona for a day or two. We would hike the many amazing trails, drink wine and do a jeep tour or off roading. Here in scottsdale I would show them the night life and yummy restaurants. They are all in walking distance of each other so I would do a drink and eat tour for the day so she could get a little taste of it all. My favorite resort to spend a day at would be the Phoenician. They have a huge spa and amazing pool area. I would take her there to relax after a long trip.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My family and boyfriend deserve a shout out. They have been here since the beginning to help and support me. My boyfriend has let me turn our apartment into thepopupbubblybaraz headquarters. My family support has helped me grow my business. They let me use there cars when I need a larger suv, build things with me, come to events with me and try to help when ever they can.
