Making high end products reachable to everyone.
What got you into doing what you’re doing?
Reign: In 2018 I lost one of my twin sons during birth and almost died. I had been working in the medical field for over 18 years. Once I saw how brutally painful and insincere that the medical field could be, and so careless and ruthless I lost my passion and decided I no longer wanted to work in that field. I’ve always had a love for fashion, styling and apparel and decided to put my passion to use monetarily.
What do people get from buying from you rather than from a store besides security from covid?
Reign: People get extremely low affordable prices. High quality on a Bougie budget.
How does anyone get in touch with you to purchase a product?
Reign: My business platform is on Instagram as well as a private Facebook shopping group. Both platforms have the same name of my business: XCLUSIVE FINDS & THINGS LLC.
What do you love about what you do?
Reign: Making people feel good. My goal is helping shoppers who feel they can’t have it because they hardly ever do for themselves without feeling guilty or just can’t afford high ticketed items. So their shopping great quality at low prices. I love making people feel like a million dollars without having to pay that high price tag.
Do you just sell in the LA area?
Reign: I sell worldwide. I ship six days a week. As well as deliver locally in the Los Angeles area.
What are the pro’s and con’s of being an independent seller?
Reign: Sometimes I meet some very abrasive customers. They don’t care what time they contact you when they’re on the hunt for an item. Also I find that people at times have no sense of good manners. And many have this expectancy in wanting something for free or beyond a great deal. They want more and more. Then there’s the customers who are so grateful. They are so happy to find exclusive quality at a great price and very fast shipping. I love getting messages on what they’ve received and how satisfied they are with their purchase. I love when my customers feel good and want to shop again.
Where do you see you and your family 5 years from now?
Reign: Five years from now I see myself as a home owner and having a small, profitable storefront boutique in at least three locations.
What advice would you give other women who want to explore bringing in income this way?
Reign: I would advise women who are interested in this line of work to do their research. Thoroughly. Every good deal isn’t a great deal. Never be too trusting. If it sounds too good it usually is. Really study vendors and their products. And try to venture out of your comfort zone but always trust your instincts.
What’s the craziest thing that you have sold?
Reign: I’ve yet to sell anything crazy or outta the box. Now that you’ve presented that question to me I want to find some unorthodox things to add to the XCLUSIVE brand.
The stage is yours…..
Reign: I was always told if you love what you do it’ll never feel like a job. I can honestly say I love staying up
10-18 hours most days doing research on new vendors for new merchandise. I love watching these reality shows to see what’s the latest fashion the rich and famous are wearing so I can get those very same items for a low price to the hardworking mother who wants that $4,000 bag but only has $150 to spend on herself. I find great satisfaction in knowing that all my customers can walk down the street next to a Paris Hilton or Jennifer Lopez and have on the same outfit or shoes or bag and you’d never know that they didn’t spend tens of thousands for that same look. I love knowing that you can be an ordinary Joe, but look like an extraordinary super star. That’s why I love what I do.
Thank you for interviewing me love. I hope you too get that XCLUSIVE shopping experience soon!!
