It has been a winning year for Odelia Deazle, a young entrepreneur and owner of “Barbuda Emblem” a sustainable accessories company.
One year after winning the 20 LIKKLE GIFT IDEAS contest, launched by SamuelFields Consulting Group (SFCG), she was also recognized as the “JCI Entrepreneur of the Year.”
Returning as a guest on SFCG’s LIKKLE BYTE IDEASdigital show this week, Deazle gave a virtual tour of her newly opened boutique and showcased her new line of products.
She expressed profound gratitude to the SFCG team and encouraged other entrepreneurs to pursue their dreams.
“We all have dreams of owning our own business.
Some of us decide to become full-time entrepreneurs, while others see part-time entrepreneurship as a way to subsidize our income, help pay bills, build wealth, or follow a passion.
Whatever your intentions, you will need a plan and the right tools to be successful.
I am extremely grateful to SFCG for giving me the exposure and the guidance to turn my passion to profits.”
Deazle was featured in December 2021, with 19 other businesses as part of the 20 LIKKLE GIFT IDEAS digital campaign.
It highlighted small and micro businesses that create thoughtful, innovative, sustainable gift options.
The initiative was designed to help entrepreneurs reboot their businesses during the pandemic, while assisting shoppers in finding unique, locally crafted Christmas gifts in the marketplace.
Describing her “Barbuda Emblem” product line as “taking a piece of Barbuda with you,” Odelia specializes in handmade jewelry and wearable souvenirs, crafted from found objects.
These include the famous pink sand, sea shells, sea glass and other natural elements.
She recently expanded her offerings to include printed bags and T-shirts.
As first place winner in the 20 LIKKLE GIFT IDEAS contest, Deazle received a cash stipend of $1000 that was donated by West Indies Oil Company.
She has also received significant national and regional exposure for her accomplishments, via television, print and social media and has been invited to participate in several conferences.
SFCG will relaunch the 20 LIKKLE GIFT IDEAS catalog next week to encourage shoppers to patronize Odelia and other local entrepreneurs.
The products and services are broken down into five main categories: Art & Home Decor, Bags & Accessories, Event Planning, Food and Beverage and Health, Fitness and Beauty.
The Gift of Knowledge is also critically important and three self-help/motivational books by local authors are also featured on the list.
