We had the good fortune of connecting with Edith Vasquez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Edith, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
To be very honest I thought that my business was going to be so different. I chose my business name thinking that I would start by selling crystals and then offer my healing abilities, however that is not how it worked out. I still remember the first day that I hosted my first event via Zoom which I now host on a monthly basis called my “Sister Circle” and I thought that day maybe I can do these here and there, but I left that event feeling so empowered. I used to plan to start my business with 10K, yet I bought crystals for the first time with only $150 dollars. I am beyond glad that many things did not work out how i thought that they should. For me the biggest lesson was to surrender and trust in the divine plan.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I cant believe that I can now actually say and own that this is my business and Full time job. When I made the decision to leave my corporate 9-5 job it was beyond scary because that all I knew and I had got into a very well known corporation that I used to dream about retiring at. I am beyond blessed to say that I wake up and go to sleep doing something that I truly love and believe in. My business has allowed me to bring my magic to others my being a vessel for Spirit. I started my business Full time during the pandemic last year in 2020 and I took all my savings to give a deposit to a home that at first I didn’t really know how it would pay, but it sure did.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Me and my Best Friend love to eat and just relax. I would definitely take him to my local restaurants because I love to support local shops and restaurants. I love to eat and drink coffee from one of my favorite restaurants Antigua Breakfast in Highland Park, CA, then we would eat ice cream at Afters Ice cream and I would take him to the beach in Malibu to enjoy the day out. I do not enjoy crowds, so I would go to a quite place for Dinner. We actually love a chicken place in Alhambra,CA. I love to have more time to talk and just be truly in the moment,so a even to take out would be amazing.
