We had the good fortune of connecting with JaQuetta Webber and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi JaQuetta, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I started with a $100 and a dream. Dreamed of doing something fun with kids. I love kids but never had any of my own but still in my field of event planning. I just had surgery and had illness and had to quit my full time job because of my health couldn’t sit long periods of time and back and forth to the doctor. I had a $100 and idea of putting a Tutu on bassinet wanted to gift my sister in love and new niece with a bassinet and something cute for her decorating for my nieces baby shower as well. My Dad (God rest his soul) 2013 before he passed encouraged me to go full time everyday he called me said “You started that business yet? What you waiting on?” He called everyday until I finally told him Dad I did it! Lol he shortly passed days after that and It pushed me even harder to still keep going because it’s what he saw i loved and wanted to do! I researched went to school planning friends and family crafting different things. I then went into mode of names and I needed it to fit my personality DAZZLE I love glitter glitz glam and LYNN is family name my moms middle name and Niece/God daughter MauriLynn name as well. I wanted to create magical moments special moments people would always remember from baby to adults. I got some of my first clients were friends and family and for that I’m forever grateful! Success to me is not money, being well known or fame. Success to me is having love and support from friends and family!
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?
Jaquetta R. Webber, 34 Event Planning and Custom Designer 8 years. I orginally sought after a career in Business Administration but quickly realized that Event Planning & Custom Designs was my calling. At a very young age I enjoyed crafting making key chains, painting, decorating, and more. I wanted to combine my passions together. Crafting, creating, and working with the community. In 2013 my loved ones finally pushed me to turn my crafting into a business. I decided to incorporate my family into my business name. I absolutely love glitter DAZZLE shiny things and in combination with my Moms Middle name, Lynn and 1st niece MauriLynn inspired the name, DazzleLynn Moments. I have 8 years of experience in Event Planning & Custom Designs. I have flourished and throughly enjoyed this industry with all of its facets. This industry comes with allot of work, dedication, passion and sacrifice. I love what I do and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I was born in Houston. Being raised in both Houston & Atlanta. I am the middle child of 3 to my deceased Omega Psi Phi father and retired mother. I currently reside in Katy, TX and service Greater Houston & All Surrounding Areas. Obstacles challenge I’ve learned over the years, this business is not easy. It takes allot of long sleepless nights and financial sacrifices. I started my business with only $100. At that time I would only charge clients the cost of supplies and made no profit. With the trends continuously changing, being abreast on them all is a full time job in itself. About DazzleLynn Moments is a family oriented business. We provide hand made custom items. We aim to please and service any need, occasion or custom product.
