Kerry Croft, Owner of the Vitamin M Box

Any woman who wears a Gold Wedding dress must be quite a goal reacher and a stunner.

Kerry Croft is her name. Kerry is the Owner of Vitamin M Box, which helps customers find minority produced products that they love while promoting and supporting minority entrepreneurship.

Also, every three months, the Vitamin M Box donates 10% of its proceeds to a Charity of choice that helps in building the Black Community.

Kerry has been selected to bring minority produced products beyond your doorstep and into your living rooms via a talk show, the Vitamin M Suite. The show will launch this Spring on Apple TV, Roku and Amazon Fire Stick!

Expect to see Black Entrepreneurs sit and discuss their ideas and businesses as they inspire and uplift others.

Did I mention Kerry is Jamaican and Suga’s cousin?! #ProudJamaican #ProudCuzzo #BlackExcellence

Get your dose of Vitamin M!

Today’s spotlight hails from Kingston, Jamaica! I tease Gabrielle all the time because I seriously don’t know what she can’t do. Read how she’s managed to escape to her creative side while still working in the hardworking medical field.

Growing up, I always wanted to be a Doctor (Obstetrician) and do Art on the side. I eventually realized that even though the income would be great after the initial struggle of paying off a hefty student loan, I would not have the time on my hands that I would desire to be the Free Spirit that I am. I still entered the field of Health Care as a Radiologic Technologist. It’s a skill and I enjoy the field. But it wasn’t enough for me as a young adult who just started working in 2010, that used to be the President of at least 2 service Clubs, while sitting on the committee of others, also engaging in modern dance and other sporting activities. I felt like I also started life 3 years behind my high school peers who did not do a 2nd Degree and who were fortunate enough to have their parents pay their way through tertiary education for them. While I had not one, but two degrees worth of Student Loans.

My walls were empty when I moved out on my own into my apartment and I said, ‘Why buy paintings when I can paint them myself?’. I officially started my company, GW Art with seasonal Collections, that has grown so much since then and still has some way to go.
I started to help a friend train her Boot camp (aerobics) class in 2011 too. She had to leave the country for a year and I did so well administering and training classes that I eventually branched out on my own. I got certified in both Personal Training and Sports Nutrition. After a timid start to do this on my own, I thrived by seeing positive results in my clients and being a part of and changing person’s lives. I am now confident and in demand in the Fitness Industry in Jamaica.

I currently find ways to express my 3 fields along with Hobbies, which include Restaurant Reviews, Sports and more on my Website, http://www.sugalifestyle.com. This continuously inspires me and makes me feel like I can branch out even more! #blackentrepreneurship #blackexcellence
