The inspired work of Caroline Simas from Multiple Blessings

On this episode of Smart Creative Women you get to meet the lovely and talented, Caroline Simas from Multiple Blessings. What a sweetheart! What a hard workin’ smart cookie! I so enjoyed getting to know her and learning about her journey. There is so much to tell you in fact, that I made a short list of the take aways from this interview besides the main take away, loving Caroline!

1) She has a genuine relationship with her clients and manufacturers. She wants what is best for them and in turn they are loyal and supportive to her.

2) She develops product ideas, not just the art for products. (I keep saying how effective this is but I am not sure anyone is listening…)

2.5)…..AND she has completely embraced her niche.

3) She gives back and in a really BIG way. You are going to love hearing about this!

4) Bonus takeaway…listen to how Bridgewater Candle Company partners with their sales teams and their retailers and with Caroline. Relationship marketing at it’s best!

As you listen in, you might have a get a few ideas of how you can better work with your clients or audience and give back at the same time.  My mind was reeling with ideas!

    I do not remember how I stumbled across your blog…but I LOVE it!  So inspirational.  I love, love, love all of the insider interviews you do.  I think your interviews are great.  You ask a lot of pointed questions, very specific.  I am going to keep coming back!

  • I was tackling my “to-do” list as I listened this morning and I was so inspired by how caroline has approached her creative business. She stays true to herself and finds partners that share her vision.  Thank you both!  Off to the studio!

    Caroline, it was wonderful to meet you last summer in Atlanta and now hear of all the new ways God is blessing you as you create art to bless and give back to others. What a beautiful thing.

  • Kathy Weller says:

    Caroline, you are so inspiring and you are a treasure. What a great example you set! I love your story and  I am so impressed but not at all surprised by all of your hard work, accomplishments and experience. Keep up what you’re doing because it is wonderful!!

    • Caroline Simas says:

      So very kind of you Kathy! I think the same of you and your work! Aren’t we so blessed to do what we love! Will you be in Atlanta? Would love to say hello!

    Caroline and Monica, what a wonderful interview. I feel very inspired this morning: “If you believe, it will happen!”  I also find it so encouraged and refreshing that Courtney Davis recruited you, Caroline, BECAUSE of the faith and scripture you share in your art. Thank you for sharing your heart!

    Thank  you so much for this wonderful interview. Monica, you are such a great interviewer and Caroline thank you for your inspirational input and honesty. Gerda

    a great interview Monica! Caroline I thought it was really interesting that when you made the swap from manufacturer to licensor that you didn’t use your own name but your established business name, which makes sense but do you ever have a situation where someone licenses, for example a single design for a card or gift wrap and ask to print your name rather than Multiple Blessings? Just wonder if you’ve ever come across this problem or do you only deal in MB collections with people?

  • Sherri Ohler says:

    Another great interview!  Wish I would’ve watched this BEFORE meeting Caroline in Atlanta Lol.  What an inspiration she is! 🙂
    Blessings and keep up the good work Monica!
