GC4W Marketplace Spotlight – Linda Bogdanvov, Founder of Tayvada
GC4W is so excited to announce that we are carrying Tayvada on our newly launched GC4W Marketplace. We started a new campaign this month to encourage our community to #shopsmall and support female entrepreneurs when doing your holiday shopping this season.
Founded by Linda Bogdanvov, Tayvada is a POC, female-owned, small business. They are a lifestyle brand that focuses on improving self-care – mind, body, and spirit. (tayvada.com)
At Tayvada, they believe that self-care and selflessness go hand-in-hand, and empower people to reduce their collective impact on the environment; they believe in caring for the world around us and that small but meaningful steps can drive true change. (tayvada.com)
We sat down with Linda Bogdanvov about her products, her entrepreneurship advice, her motivations, and more!
1. What inspired you to start your business?
I am a self-care junkie and wanted to create products that helped facilitate more, eco-conscious self-care practices
2. What can you share about the products you create and/or sell?
Our first product is reusable bamboo face pads. They are a great, eco-conscious replacement to cotton pads. They can be washed in the mesh washing bag that is included and used over and over. Not only are they better for the environment, they feel softer and don’t have harsh chemicals and since they can be reused, they are much better for your wallet.
3. What do you love most about working with customers?
Creating products that make them feel good about themselves. They are a lifestyle brand that focuses on improving self-care – mind, body, and spirit.
4. What motivated you to sell on the GC4W marketplace?
I love the mission of GC4W. I love that the organization supports women and their entrepreneurial journey.
5. What advice do you have for an aspiring entrepreneur or small business owner?
Believe in yourself and go for it, whether it is a slow process or diving right into the deep end – progress is progress no matter how big or small.
