My personal collection has been growing thanks to Shawna Brown owner of the online bathing suit boutique Beach Bottom Girls. I had the pleasure of interviewing Shawna about the company.

Beach Bottom Girls owner Shawna Brown

 

Shanny: You are a Real Estate Agent & Party Promoter & I know this is not your first entrepreneurial venture; With all the Bathing Suit companies in Jamaica, why did you chose bathing suits as your new entrepreneurial venture?

Shawna: I choose and do what I love, we are always at the beach, my friends and I go there a lot so Beach Bottom Girls was really created for my circle to get the best priced swimwear.

Shanny: When did you decide to make Beach Bottom Girls a reality?

Shawna: After I purchased my last over priced “stay bad” swimwear I decided its time I fill the gap; after research and seeing that the stores charge a lot, I decided to bring my own and then create a lifestyle aspect of it where you share your beach, pool, hotel etc. experience back with us, so indirectly each customer is part of a movement.

Shanny: Why the name Beach Bottom Girls?

Shawna: Was looking for something catchy and current something that we cherish on our bodies for me as well as almost half of Jamaican females “The Bottom.”

Shanny:  Who is a Beach Bottom Girl?

Shawna: We are just fun loving, adventurous people.  I can’t speak for everyone but for most of my customers they are always out at the beach if not at work that’s were we bond.

Shanny: I know that this is like asking a parent who is your favourite child but if you were being treated to a Bora Bora vacation & could only take one Beach Bottom Girl piece, which would you take?

Shawna: Any high waist until I get my body in shape lol.

Shanny: How do you balance Beach Bottom Girls with all your other ventures?

Shawna: Well Beach Bottom girls has an Accounts department and that is pretty much the hub. She tells me when to spend and when money hits my account so I do the purchasing, deliveries I plan a meet up with each person. It’s good to keep Accounts separate to track the sales.

Shanny: Beach Bottom Girls is currently an online store, are there any plans to set up a physical location?

Shawna: What I find with the physical is that it attracts a rent and overheads then I would have to raise the prices & I want to remain at a good price range for Jamaica. Online is the new Home and Store.

Shanny: What is the one thing you wish you knew before starting Beach Bottom Girls specifically and before you became an Entrepreneur?

Shawna:I wish I knew more courier services …But now I do !
