When life is doling out lemons to your bestie 800 miles away, what can you do? Talk and text to the wee hours, yes. Hop on a plane if your budget allows, sure. But what about something tangible, whimsical, and lemonade-producing? Courtney Mamuscia founded Juju Be Gone to provide the remedy to just such a situation.
“We believe in intentional gifting to teach people how to change their path, to welcome in the positivity and look at things differently. And, we wanted to introduce the rituals behind using tools to move, change and use the energy around – which is why we include an elevated smudge kit in each gift,” Courtney explained in a recent interview with VoyageDenver.
Her background in IT marketing has been helpful in Courtney’s new life as an entrepreneur. Still, managing inventory, handling the inevitable ups and downs of a startup, and balancing the all-consuming needs of a new business with the equally pressing needs of a family have been challenges.
Working with two friends has been great, as Courtney has built-in sounding boards and access to skill sets other than her own.
Courtney’s advice to other female founders? “No one can do it all. Prioritize and execute. Be flexible enough to let things go and passionate enough to do your best every day.”
