Nea Mari, Owner

Instinct Style Boutique was established in 2013 by founder and owner Nea Mari (IG: @neamari). At the age of 22 I graduated from BGSU with my Bachelors of Science in Technology and set out to pursue a job in that field, but was unable to secure employment in that area. Over the next 3 years I worked several jobs, from call centers, retail, finance, and even working the midnight shift processing paperwork for the Canadian border. No job ever fulfilled what I was looking for in my life. So from the departmental changes, firings, and layoffs, the rat race to success continued for me.

My last 9 to 5 position in Michigan was as an Underwriter for business loans, and it opened up a whole new world that I was drawn to; Entrepreneurship. Everyday I sat in front of a computer screen going over bank statements and researching businesses and backgrounds of business owners. People who had made their own dream come true. I got the behind the scenes look at businesses from start to finish and I made up in my mind, that's what I want to do. Be an entrepreneur. Then on a Friday in mid April of 2012, I was called into the HR office and was told, "Due to company restructuring we can't find a place for you, and today is your last day." I was angry but in a way relieved all at the same time. That was my turning point, and I told myself that I will no longer put my financial future in the hands of anyone else. If corporate America can just take away your job and pay for no legitimate reason, I no longer wanted to be involved.

Then Instinct Style Boutique was born. In 2013 I moved from my beloved Detroit, to Atlanta for a fresh start. Began a new 9 to 5 with only the intention of investing in myself and my dream. Since I've been here I've worked for a few different companies with various titles, but the intention is still the same.

And here I am, at 31 in 2018, slowly but surely making it happen. I encourage all my women to pursue your hearts desire and to take every setback as a push to a new beginning.

And this story is still being written...
