Ag Chicks | S4 Episode 16: Shelby Lovelace
My name is Shelby Lovelace, I am the owner of @thegoodbabesco & @shopbbtlabel I started out of college with just $2,000 and a dream of delivering affordable yet quality pieces, that give women confidence. I originally started with home decor, painting canvas’s and bull skulls to pay rent in college, I saved up my extra money and slowly started buying into clothes. — I worked in corporate for Dell Computers for 4 years but quickly realized but quickly realized that was not the industry for me and I needed to find something I was passionate about, to not only make a difference in my life, but others also. — My ultimate goal is to give others confidence through clothes, at an affordable price. — The name The Good Babes Co spoke to my heart, with a true meaning; in this time more than ever, we feel the need to spread kindness and positivity at every opportunity that presents itself. Instead of praising celebrities, let’s praise non-profits, telling a random stranger that you LOVE their outfit, skipping Starbucks to donate money to those who are in need, or even just giving a helping hand to someone at the grocery store. I am beyond thankful, first off if you’ve read this far second, for being apart of the Good Babes Club. Let’s all strive to be Good Babes XOXO - Shelby Follow Shelby @thegoodbabesco & @shopbbtlabel Thank you to Ag Chicks Sponsors: Strayhorn: Use code AGCHICKS at checkout ⁠https://www.strayhorn.com⁠ ------------------------------------------------ Merch: ⁠⁠⁠https://www.agchicks.net/shop⁠⁠ ⁠ ------------------------------------------------ Find Ally: Website: ⁠⁠⁠https://agchicks.net⁠⁠⁠ Instagram: ⁠⁠⁠https://instagram.com/agchicks⁠⁠ ⁠ Facebook: ⁠⁠⁠https://facebook.com/agchicks⁠⁠ ⁠ YouTube: ⁠⁠⁠⁠ @AGCHICKS --- Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/agchicks/support
