Because WHY NOT?
Founded in 2015 in Athens, Ga. I created Cinder + SMOKE because someone very important to me told me I would make a horrible nurse.
I have always cared for the earth. I’m most certainly what one might call Crunchy! I wanted to be apart of GreenPeace and save all the animals. Although this was a huge part of who I was it wasn’t the best way for me to make a living. I had a dear friend of mine die and I was about to take a nursing exam that could have cared less about and rememebered my friends voice saying, “You know you’ll be a shit nurse right?”
It’s scary to be who you're meant to be. It doesn't feel easy because it's not. But I was made for this.
Entrepreneurship is never a smooth road, sorry to burst anyone's bubble. But even with all its challenges I knew this is what I had to do. Whether it was lucrative or not, it was just something I needed to do.
I want to show you what I see and make you feel the way you were always meant to.
