Hidden Gems: Meet Raven Williams of Accessorized By Rae

Today we’d like to introduce you to Raven Williams.

Raven, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I started my business on the basis of women’s safety. I noticed that there was a significant increase in crimes or scenarios involving women victims. I jotted little notes that I could do personally that’s not too cheesy or something that they are already aware of. I began completing a ton of research and learned about different statistics to build my brand. So I started Accessorized By Rae. A company where you can get a fashionable accessory statement that also promotes safety.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
The journey that I have faced has not been as easy as some might think. There has been multiple times were I’ve redone things or simply just started over because that was the best choice for me and my business. Which can be tedious and stressful when you put your all into something that you love deeply. My main struggle was for me to open up more to my customers and be that business women that I’ve always dreamed of. The fear of the unknown attached with failure automatically put me in a frightened position. After a while, I was able to express myself differently and be able to show my customers what I’ve wanted to show them for so long.

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
My business is all about women’s safety. I offer self-defense products for women to protect themselves if needed. My vision was for women to have a product that they are glad to walk around with and/or not worry about it messing up with their day to day outfits. Accessorized By Rae offers multiple different colors in self-defensive products for customers to have a diverse amount of choices to choose from. It is literally a “wow” factor when others see your cute self-defensive products.

The key thing that sets me apart from others is my foundation and my personal attachment I have with my customers.

Are there any important lessons you’ve learned that you can share with us?
The most important lesson that I have learned so far is that likes and comments do not value you personally or your business. I had to realize that a lot of people are always watching. The beauty of it all is that you posted about your business to billions of people on the world and there’s a least one person who loves your content.
