Merley Greenidge, Owner of Celebrate Sweetly, Sponsors January 20th Synergy Meeting

Merley Greenidge, Owner of Celebrate Sweetly, Sponsors January 20th Synergy Meeting

We are pleased to feature Merley Greenidge, owner of Celebrate Sweetly, as our January 20th Spotlight Sponsor! As we head into the new year, Celebrate Sweetly has a few new and exciting things on the horizon. Greenidge reflects, “The pandemic provided an opportunity for us to take stock and essentially rebrand our gift presentations.  We will be launching a new line of subscription boxes and launching our World Unboxed this month. We’re also introducing our exclusive and very limited 3-tiered gifting concierge membership service that will elevate our clients gifting experiences!”
  
Merely is most proud of their commitment to supporting small businesses by shopping local and working with small-batch vendors primarily in California.  Additionally, Celebrate Sweetly makes a commitment to sustainability by making a concerted effort to using earth-friendly packaging, reusable boxes and containers for gifts.  Giving back to the community is a big part of her business ethos so she takes pride in every opportunity to do just that. Celebrate Sweetly is a local, 100% black woman owned business. Over 90% of their products are from local sources and they work closely with other small woman owned businesses. As sustainability is such a major part of the business, they are doing their part for the environment using all natural eco-friendly wood curls that are biodegradable for packaging.

Who is Celebrate Sweetly’s ideal client?  

The individual or company that understands that showing appreciation is a natural and important part of building business relationships.  The client who wants to give thoughtful and meaningful gifts that let the recipient know that the relationship is truly valued.
  
What is Celebrate Sweetly’s origin story?

“The idea was very organic and a natural fit to my hospitality background. I’ve always been the ‘gift whisperer’ in the family. I knew all the birthdays and made sure to send cards and gifts at the appropriate time. I meticulously planned and coordinated our daughter’s birthday parties and always put together gifts for friends, teachers, etc. The act of appreciation combined with a thoughtful gift can create a lasting impact and it’s something I absolutely love and enjoy. By word-of-mouth people started requesting my services for their celebrations. The turning point was when my husband received a holiday gift from a client, and it was from one of the big box store gifts. I knew I could curate gifts with a personal touch that would let the recipient know that there was some thoughtfulness behind the gift.  Since 2012, I have built a base of small local and mid-size businesses and we focus on helping them speak the language of appreciation with carefully curated custom gifts.”
 
So, what’s next for Celebrate Sweetly? They are excited to launch their podcast in the New Year. Sharing gifting tips and delving into the concept of gift marketing and why it is a necessary component of running your business.  They currently have a studio space in Westlake Village. With the Super Bowl coming to Los Angeles, Merley is looking to partner with companies to offer locally curated welcome gifts for out of town guests!

Celebrate Sweetly is proud to have been nominated as a Candidate for the 2022 Leukemia and Lymphoma Society MWOY (Man & Woman of the Year) campaign. This campaign is looking for partnerships to raise awareness and funds for their continued research to eradicate blood cancers. As philanthropy is such a big part of Greenidge’s business ethos, she makes time to do her part to support organizations such as the Conejo Compassion Coalition that she’s been involved with for over thirteen years and Harbor House which works to provide meals to the homeless in our community.

We’re proud to have Merley as our Spotlight Sponsor! Join us for our January 20th meeting online at 10 AM!

Some messages from our group...

What makes Synergy Business Connections a special group?

Synergy Business Connections has been such a great addition to my business. I have met not only prospects but business owners who have become powerful centers of influence for me. Getting to know the members has put me in a position to be a resource to all everyone I meet, whether I can help them or not. What really sets Synergy apart though is the positive energy and friendships I have made. We truly work together to attain our common goal which is success!
