Amy Gonzalez, ACS - Owner & Certified Sex Educator
While enrolled at University of Texas in San Antonio (UTSA), and working full-time, I decided to start a part-time in-home lingerie party business. Instantaneously, I knew this was my life’s calling. Yes, it is a fun industry to work in, but what really kept me motivated was helping women. Of course, having access to gorgeous lingerie is plus. After years of hosting in-home parties and at my customers’ requests, I knew it was time to open my own boutique. Opening the doors to Love Shack Boutique was no easy feat. In addition to juggling school, work and my in-home parties, I spent years educating myself in all aspects of the business. Learning about different consumer products and the various types of fabric used to make lingerie, was definitely the fun part. Then there are other facets of the business requiring much more attention, such as the business and marketing plan, financing, location, inventory, employees, competitors & everything else that comes with opening a retail boutique. Needless to say, it takes hard work, dedication, self-motivation and relentless determination to have your own business and to keep doing what you love.
Today, I am happy to say that all this hard work has paid off. Love Shack Boutique has won numerous awards: Winning both The San Antonio Express-News & The SA Flavor Best Fiesta Medal for 2015 and 2016. We were also honored by The University of Texas San Antonio (UTSA) Business Development Center, as a Small Business Leader in the areas of job creation and business development. The most exciting award we have received is being voted as the # 1 Adult Store by The San Antonio Current’s Best of San Antonio, for the past four years in a row. This high honor is thrilling and humbling, because it was made possible by my great employees, and especially, our fantastic and supportive customers. Without our customers our company would NOT exist.
My hope is that you will visit Love Shack Boutique, experience the difference, and see why our customers have made us # 1.
