How'd It All Start?!
I've always loved fashion. I love finding deals. Most importantly, I love wearing weird, unique clothing that I didn't really care if other people didn't approve of. I had this thought in the back of my mind that one day, I would own my own boutique.
I've been in the medical field my entire life. From pain management, to chiropractic assisting to aiding children. Don't get me wrong, I loved every minute of every job I've ever had, but there was always something missing. The thought of that fantasy boutique always sat in my mind.
Let's backtrack. The name Ruboo? My husband (boyfriend at the time) gave me that nickname. We meshed a bunch of different names together and I told myself if I ever had my own business then that's what I'd name it. Also, my husband joined the Marine Corps back in 2013. He served his 4 years, and when he got out, we moved back home to Michigan. I started a job at a dental office and again, something was missing. I sat at my mother in laws house on my computer playing around with the idea of starting up an online boutique. She convinced me that I most definitely needed a storefront and that she had a space for me if I was interested. Needless to say, we drove to the spot at that exact moment, and within an hour I had my entire business plan ready.
I was SO ready for this. I quit my job, and immediately focused all my attention to this. This is what I wanted to do. This was my DREAM! I bought all my furniture, decor and inventory within a week and waited patiently for my business license. The rest is history.
