We had the good fortune of connecting with Zaneta Owens and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Zaneta, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important factor behind my success is collaboration. Being true to yourself and constantly growing are equally important but my lasting success is from the lasting relationships I am able to build in and across industries.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
My newest venture is a called SaSy Wines. It stands for Strong. And. Sexy. You. What I love about this new business is that our wine variations are called Sexy, Confident, Strong, words of empowerment. Even better you get to consume your words of empowerment:The best of both worlds. My co-founder Melinda Silva is an integral part of developing SaSy Wines and business growth. I have other companies such as Lord Owens online clothing store and Zaneta Owens handbags but this is my first collaboration. A strong collaboration built on our individual strengths and respect for each others ideas. When your a one women show with minimal number of employees you pretty much rely on yourself but being vulnerable is a strength I have developed to further our SaSy vision. My advice for all upcoming entrepreneurs is to align what drives you with your habits. Your habits are a reflection of what you value.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I love road trips! Love heading up the coast to Santa Barbara or Newport Beach. I also love the the beach vibes in San Diego and joining into a fun game of Beach Volleyball. Best eats are in Hilcrest area. We can walk up and down Hilcrest and check out all the newest spots.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
