Meet Chantel Anderson

Today we’d like to introduce you to Chantel Anderson.

Chantel, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
Well, it started back in 2016 making Valentines Baskets and Valentines Bows just for the Holidays, just a little hobby I did for myself. I really enjoy the colors, it gets me into another dimension. A lot of people were telling me I should make it into a business. Never really thought to but I believed in 2017, I did make it into ChanteLL The Brand. ChanteLL is not how you spell my name. It’s actually with 1 L. I added the other L to make it Double LL for LoveLoyalty. Exactly what the Brand is. Anywho I started making accessories as far as simple but flashy. I’ve made the Sunflowers Studs and the star Bright Studs for the spring/summer (or everyday use), I also make Customized Slides and Sandals, Home Decor etc. When Halloween come and Christmas I go all out. I make bows Earrings super neat; I love it!!! I did meet my Bestfriend! (literally) I met a really, really amazing Man the ending of 2017. We talked everyday to the point we created the Apparel line for CTB name LoveHomie (2018). So we got LoveHomie Trademarked and been making Our Brand together. We have Children, Women’s and Men apparel. We actually are coming out with the next new gear, which are the unisex Jogger set (Stay Down Stay Committed) that will be Navy Blue and Black in the middle of January. Pretty excited about that.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Through the years since I had my Brand, it has been fairly smooth. When the Apparel Side came, I have a lil bumbs and curves as far as doing the ordering bulk, which company am I gonna use etc… but it’s going. Thanks to my strong Partner being by my side to keep my head up and keep going. Literally, we Stay Down Stay Committed to our relationship and our Brand.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
Wow… well, ever since I could work, I was working non-stop. So that being said, when I was 17, I got pregnant and started working till my nine-month. I loved working and loved being pregnant! Anywho during that time me being pregnant, I bought my first car and graduated than had my daughter Tayella. I worked at these small jobs in Hospitality which I love dealing with people… At age 19, I believe I had got into being an entertainer. Yes, I said it, Entertainer… I did stop at one point for alil and started different jobs here and there… than, I started at Vinito Restaurante (Prime Outlets). Love love that job. I started as a hostess and tried to work my way up. As I was hosting for them for years, I had created CTB and Thought of my Patent idea during that time as well. Sooo Vinito has a lot to do with the Brand and having my mind WORK!

Anyways I worked my way up from Hosting to Bussing, Bussing to Expo and Expo to SERVING BABY!! So I’ve been at Vinito’s off and on for like 7-8 years, proud to say!! So right now, I have a lot I’m doing. I have my Brand and I have The Warehouse (Club) and serve on weekends. I keep myself very busy. I am most proud of myself for having such a strong mind and go-getter personality. Through the years, I did have my up and downs but I’ve always learned for my situations. I’ve been thrown and what I’ve seen threw the years etc. I feel what sets me apart from others is my mind. I got to where I am now from just opening my eyes and learning from others and telling myself. I want more and to share what I made from my inside my heart and soul.

Can you talk to us a bit about happiness and what makes you happy?
Crazy to say but the small things make me happy. When I say small things like being outside watching a butterfly or seeing an Eagle. When, I was a host that’s all I really did was observe. Observe the trees, the plants (that’s all my manager had around the front of the restaurant was his plants) The Bees and hornets going to the Crown of Thorn (Huge cactus Plant) sucking the nectar etc. Also, I would see all the families from different countries from around the world. I would think to myself, wow, I want a big family and to be happy and not worry. So I got my mind thinking. So I should say the small things and seeing Happy things and colors get me Happy.
