Why a Stylish Pillbox?

Inspired by Dawn started with a simple idea - Bringing Style to Life. My vision for the brand is to offer women practical products infused with a healthy dose of style. From this basic principle came the idea to make the Style Rx my launch product. After all it fit the bill - the pill box case offers women the rare combination of function and style, and hopefully reflects some of the elements of your personal brand.

We hear it everyday – 40 is the new 30, 50 is the new 40, etc. – but regardless of the substance behind these statements, the truth is none of us want to feel older than we are. We all want to look like the best version of ourselves at any age. Each of us is our own brand, and we want everything about us to build and support the substance behind that brand. That includes first and foremost our personality, our actions and values. But it even extends to our superficial, everyday items – smartphone covers, sunglasses, shoes, pill cases, etc. All of these things together reflect to the world who we are, what is important to us and even our zest for life.

That’s why for me something as helpful, yet clinical as a pill box mattered. Tens of millions of people rely on a range of supplements and medications to help them maintain their health everyday but that tool had not evolved to reflect the vibrant, joy-filled women that I meet everyday. I felt there was a void and I’ve jumped into fill it.

However, rest assured the Inspired by Dawn will be about more than Style Rx. There are more products that I think could use a little signature style, and I’m prepared to have them stand appropriately under the Inspired by Dawn umbrella. An umbrella / brand that will always remain committed to Bringing Style to Life and helping you hone your personal brand.

How did I get here?!?

Last week I finally launched the Inspired by Dawn brand. It has been a long journey to develop my launch product, Style Rx, and bring this brand to life. Four short years ago I had my beautiful daughter, and with much trepidation left my marketing and branding career to take a much needed reboot and indulge in the opportunity to finally be a mom. However, as much as I looked forward to this one-of-a-kind time I knew that I would always resume my career.

As my newborn daughter quickly became an active and independent toddler, our family made a cross-country move, and before I knew it my little girl was leaving me several times a week for preschool. While all this was happening it was becoming increasingly clear that I needed to figure out what I was going to do to put my marketing experience back to work. Fortunately, in the midst of this transition, I went through a period of inspiration – probably because I had a moment to think since leaving the confines of an office building! The original idea for the Style Rx line of pill box cases started evolving in my mind, along with other ways to make to make life simpler, yet more attractive for busy women at all stages of life.

I felt the time was right to see if I could take this idea and figure out how to bring it to the market – all while building a unique brand along the way. The branding part is what I’ve done throughout my career. It’s what I love. That part made sense to me and excited me most. But the designing, sourcing, quality control, intellectual property (patents, trademarks, copyrights, oh my!), contracts, etc., etc. – that was all new to me. I’ve learned more than I ever wanted to know about some of these areas but they were all little pieces in my journey and I’ve stretched myself in new ways. I’ve become a more well-rounded professional along the way, and hopefully a more inspired wife and mother. (Tips for Starting Your Own Business)

Now I’m starting the next phase of my journey – getting Style Rx into people’s hands. I’m sure this part will have it’s own twists and turns and learning curves. I’d love to have you join me. Check back here as I detail the growth of Inspired by Dawn and Bring Style to Life along the way!
