MYLE was founded by a couple – Violeta & Sharas who had a passion for organization and decluttering their own home. It`s still family operated business to this day.
We realized that while traveling around the world, we didn`t have the opportunity to have a lot of things and needed an easy solution for storage. We did our market research and found out that there was a lack of home organization products that served the purpose and at the same time were aesthetically pleasing. That`s how we decided to create our first “Bedside caddy” product, which was a huge success. Gradually we started designing and adding new products to the store.
We also enjoyed the lifestyle that comes with owning a business and being your own boss motivated us to take the leap and start MYLE.
The challenges the business
The home organizing business is a fast-paced industry, with many competitors trying to gain market share. One of the challenges we faced were standing out in a crowded marketplace and making its products and brand known to potential customers. Another challenge were other brands stealing MYLE’s content and product designs. Additionally, during Covid19 long shipment times from the manufacturer were delayed which made us be out of stock for w little while and ultimately it impacted customer satisfaction.
The opportunities the business
There are several opportunities available as a store that sells home organizers. One such opportunity is the growing trend of minimalism and decluttering, which has become increasingly popular in recent years. This trend presents a chance for us to showcase products and services to potential customers. Another opportunity could be the expansion of the business to offer professional organization services. This can create an additional revenue stream and offer a more personalized service to customers.
