What does a curvy woman in a new state do in order to make a living and create something she's proud of? The answer, she starts an online boutique and consignment store and names it Urban Thick.
Hi everyone, I'm Dina, your curvy executive officer and I wanted to share my "courageous" story and hopefully you will share yours.
In 2005 I moved to Georgia from California to start a new chapter in my life. At the time I was married and the goal was to live our dreams and start a family. Six months later I was getting a divorce and starting over in a new state as a single woman. #Courageous- The first "courageous" thing was passing the Real Estate Sales Person state exam, then after 20-years of working corporate jobs, I stepped into a job that was commission only. Wow....how different is it to work a job that only pays commission versus getting a paycheck every two-weeks.
In 2007 the economy took a dive and my Real Estate career was over. Life became really scary, I had to find a way to earn a living. So from 2007 until 2013 I took odd jobs while getting my business off the ground. In 2013 the creation of Urban Thick was born and the rest is history. That's my courageous story, what's yours? Please share your story and send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Urban Thick overall business concept isn't really new. At the core, we are a clothing boutique and consignment store. However, we have several unique features that helps us stand out from the rest and getting our sellers paid within the first 30-days is at the top of the list. We also specialize in plus size clothing while utilizing numerous online platforms to make rapid sales.
Most of our sellers send us clothing every three months. They are more than excited to about being paid every two-weeks. These are our V.I.P Sellers and they never have to worry about shipping fees. In addition their items have priority over other Sellers. We also offer free shipping to our first-time sellers. This way they get a chance to try us out without any out of pocket cost.
Although we are still considered to be in the beginning stages of growing into a huge brand. We are excited with our position thus far. Currently reaching over 2100 Facebook friends and just over 1600 Instagram followers. We have a long way to go but with each happy customer, seller, and successful modeling shoot we are destined to get there! You can help us and have a chance at winning some great gifts by joining us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. To shop for cute curvy quality clothes visit UrbanThick.com today!

For the past 11-years, I've been building multiple streams of income and obtaining wealth through ownership. I've spoken with several groups of women about pursuing their passion and streaming their dreams. Some listened, started and stopped, others made excuses and turned a blind eye, while just a few stuck it out and are now on track to earning passive streams of income for themselves.
Now, I'm back on my weekly podcast talking about how to start the process of creating passive income and the importance of doing it now rather than later. We've entered into a new industry and most people are not even aware of it. E-commerce is here to stay and changing the way we live our daily lives. We're going to discuss this world and how you can benefit from it using simple technology and the many platforms out there.
Women around the world can listen to our podcast by streaming or phoning into our live show. We'll engage the audience by chatting in the chat room and taking their questions on air. Don't worry, if you've missed it, we'll have it as an archive file on the main show page.
Learn how you can to take positive steps towards a brighter financial future!
If you take care of the things you have, you'll never go without the things you need.
I received an email from a customer asking how to take care of a sweater she purchased from our store. I offered her this advice. Place the item inside a light weight laundry bag, choose the gentle wash cycle in cold water, and lay flat until dry. She was grateful for the advice and hopefully she's still enjoying her light blue twist style Ralph Lauren sweater today.
Buying and selling clothes from a consignment store is a smart way to shop. Many people think that pre-owned clothes are dirty,stained, or smelly but that's far from the truth. Most of our Sellers have their items professionally cleaned before shipping them to us. These and other misconceptions cause people to miss out of huge savings and awesome buys.
At Urban Thick we promise our customers that they are buying a quality item. In order to keep our promise we take every item we get in through a vigorous process. Only after several inspections, taking measurements, photographing, and writing a detailed description do we post our items for sale. You can read some of our customers' feedback experiences here. So the next time you're looking for something unique and cute to wear, take a look at our consignment shop, you'll be pleasantly surprised!
When I met our lead model last year, I had no idea how things were going to work out. Ask anyone who knows me and they'll tell you that I have a "no nonsense" personality when it comes to business. So when Scheronda and I started working together I was pleasantly surprised at how professional she was.
Sheronda has several beauty pageant titles, she's a stylist, and model. She also has an honorable full-time job she loves. But what's really impressive is her sense of style, inner beauty, and confidence. She is Urban Thick!
Urban Thick is not a place, color, or thing. It's a felling of Confidence! All women should have this feeling while doing the important things they do in the world. What we wear as curvy women is a reflection of who we are and how we're perceived. Our sense of fashion and style comes from within. When a woman is wearing the right clothes for her body type she looks well put together and comes across as being strong, empowered and of course confident.
So when the models wear our beautiful clothes, they are helping us exemplify the beauty of plus size women in all shapes and sizes. We can showcase them wearing a fitted formal dress or rocking a pair of jeans. At Urban Thick our customers buy confidence and in return, we make sure they get the clothes they deserve to fit their curves!

P.S. We are always looking for aspiring plus size models/consignment sellers and new customers!
