Today we’d like to introduce you to Mayra Duron.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
My family and I were grieving through a very difficult season. I wanted to teach them how to use creativity as an avenue to mourn forward. We started weaving and posted our first Macrame project. My daughter and I woke up to six orders from the project we posted and the orders have not stopped since!
Has it been a smooth road?
Absolutely not! I say this with a big smile on face simply because looking back it was just unfamiliar territory. Embracing the unknown will always be difficult, but so worth it. So I hope it encourages others to still move forward. You’ll find muscles you never knew you had. You have to be willing to learn and constantly expect change. That’s the only thing we can expect is “change.”
We’d love to hear more about Solace Macrame.
I specialize in wedding backdrops. My pieces are unique because I weave each couple’s story into the pattern. There have been couples who go hiking and find their own piece of driftwood for me to build on so each one always has its own special meaning.
We’re interested to hear your thoughts on female leadership – in particular, what do you feel are the biggest barriers or obstacles?
I started my business when I was 32 with five children and I know they are my drive and motivation. Society looks at children as a hindrance, but we can’t accept that. Children are like arrows in the hand of a warrior. They ignite visions that one day they can inherit as their own. And to pass something down to the next generation is woman’s most powerful notion. We are lionesses.
