Welcome to Ana Marie Boutique! My name is Madeline Bohlman. I am seventeen years old and from Texas. You may be wondering, "How does a seventeen-year-old have her own business?" It all started when I was sixteen as a challenge from my parents for my sister and I to pursue our own entrepreneurial dreams. My mom has owned a decorating business for many years and my dad owns a consulting firm, both entrepreneurs themselves. I decided to open Ana Marie Boutique and my sister created Spark Candles.
My mom helps me run this website and has taught me how to buy merchandise, price and market, and my dad is helping me learn how to manage the business end. This boutique was named after my little sister, Ana Kate and my great grandmother, Marie.
It brings me joy to get to do what I am doing through this website, and I wouldn't be able to do it without God, my family, and my friends.
I have based my business off of two Bible verses:
Psalms 45:5, "God is within her, she will not fall: God will help her at the break of day.", and
Proverbs 31:25, "She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future."
Thank you for visiting my store and shopping with us.
