My name is Antonina Kuznetsov, the woman behind the brand Antonina Naturals. I'm so excited to invite all of you friends to my blog! This will be a place where I share my journey and challenges of being a young entrepreneur. It will be a place where I share tips on how to live a simple yet authentic lifestyle. A happy place where I hope to bring some joy, inspiration, and fun ideas. I know it will change as I change and follow along with the seasons of life I am going through. So get cozy in a fuzzy blanket, make a warm latte (caramel please!) relax, read, and enjoy.
At a young age, I found a deep passion for the natural beauty world and my inner entrepreneurial spirit. Every since I was twelve years old, I was creating beauty products in my mom's kitchen mixing up different ingredients and testing out different products. Once I created a product I loved, I would sell it at the local farmer's market or bring it to the local boutiques. People loved my products and I did too because I put the time and love into researching the ingredient list and formulating quality products.
Being a young entrepreneur has taught me so many life lessons and has brought much joy and many tears. It's a constant journey and I'm happy to be learning along the way. It's so exciting to see new orders rolling in and shop owners carrying your product line in stores. When you support small business you truly are supporting a dream!
Although starting my business came pretty natural to me I always knew that I wanted to do something different. I wanted to be my own boss and not live like most people. I didn't want the whole "go to college and get a good paying job" that didn't sound satisfying to me. I wanted to create, serve, and inspire. I'm passionate about making a difference whether it's providing you with a great body butter or giving back to the world! We see all the current events that are happening in our daily news feed, there sure is a lot of sadness and hate. There is also good and there is also love. We need to share more of the good and love every single day. I think that the smallest acts of kindness can make the biggest difference. Whether it's praying for something that's on your heart, making someone you love feel special, or volunteering to charitable causes.
Thank you for reading and welcome to my blog! I'd love to become friends and stay in touch. Follow me on social media and feel free to message me with any questions. I'm always here to help.
