Today we’d like to introduce you to Gina Sachs.
Gina, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
The thought for tinyacts.co started about four years ago, during a time in my life that I felt my identity had been completely lost to wife and motherhood. A close friend had asked me what lit me up inside. I really loved doing kind things for others. She said great now think of a way to monetize it. So, it became something that I would escape my days thinking about and then after everyone else had fallen asleep I’d stay up late fiddling around with it online. It wasn’t until the Covid shutdown that I realized I could no longer live my life in a dream world and I needed to make it a reality.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I think my biggest challenge has been getting over myself. I questioned if I could really be the face of kindness when I also have such a loud, filthy mouth. Then I realized that that’s not something I should let hold me back. Imagine if everyone who was fluent in cusswords thought that because of that they couldn’t really be kind. I realized that there are more people like me than not and we could all use a kick in the butt and a reminder to be really f*cking kind.
We’ve been impressed with tinyacts.co, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
After the years of daydreaming and finally getting over myself, I finally created tinyacts.co. and my Tiny Acts of Kindness card decks. To say I am proud is an understatement. I feel like I was able to capture the true essences of acts of kindness and turn it into something tangible. Often times we will encounter someone kind or witness a kind act but we only walk away with a feeling and that feeling can fade away so quickly. My cards allow people to walk away with an IOU to the Universe as a reminder that when the opportunity presents itself, they too should pass on that card and act of kindness.
If you had to, what characteristic of yours would you give the most credit to?
I feel like that big, loudmouth that I was so worried about getting me in trouble and making me less than qualified to talk about kindness has turned into my greatest asset. I love talking, sharing, and connecting with others. I have a wonderful friend base online and in-person who love and care about me. They have been my biggest supporters in making the first several months of my business so successful and I couldn’t have done it without them.
