Y’all, I wouldn’t have believed it if I didn’t see it happening with my own eyes in real time. Yes ma’am, famed founder and CEO of The Crayon Case Cosmetics, affectionally known as SupaCent, cleared 1 million dollars with her Cyber Monday sale.
Okay, so I didn’t actually see it, but I watched the sales come in on the ‘gram and nearly passed out from the sheer excitement of it.
So why is this so exciting? Well, for one, Supacent is a self-made regular degular woman from New Orleans who has seemingly overnight, turned her passion into profit. Cha-ching.
In a February 2018 interview with RollingOut, Supacent revealed that her success came from simply being herself. She began by going live on Instagram and things just took off from there.
“I am just a normal girl from New Orleans who has a public sense of humor. Which got me to where I am today…When I started doing videos, they were so raw and unapologetic — people related to it! I didn’t care how people reacted to them! I just was venting, and they felt where I was coming from.”
In less than two years, Supacent has built a million dollar business from the ground up, and she hasn’t changed one iota since launching her brand. She is still very active on social media, engages with her followers, and keeps it 100 all day, every day. Her fans even contact her for personal advice!
