We had the good fortune of connecting with Maxie Mendez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Maxie, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Ever since I could remember, I have always wanted to have my own business and be my own boss. I have always been into fashion and being in the modeling industry, I wanted to start my own clothing line and boutique. I wanted to sell clothes that was a staple for everyone. So I thought to myself, “what is the one thing that every women has in their closets?”… leggings! So I decided to start my own activewear/ athleiuse online boutique! Cute, sporty and comfy over everything.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Maxx Fit Clothing Co is an online boutique that sells active wear, lounge wear and athleisure. I wanted to sell clothes that will give you comfort, style and confidence! Whether you workout at the gym, or just need some comfy and fashionable pieces to run errands in, I wanted to have the perfect pieces for everyone. It was not easy starting my own business but one day I just thought to myself “It’s now or never what am I waiting for” and here we are!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Arizona has so many cool spots that are hidden gems! The perfect vacation in Arizona would be to go to my favorite local coffee shop, Gathered Grounds, take a road trip to Sedona and enjoy the sights and restaurants down there.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Yes, my mom! She has always encouraged me to pursue my goals and dreams. There is no better motivator than my mom. Everything I want to achieve in my life is for her and everything she has done for me.
