Can you tell us a little about yourself?
My name is Glorie Tiumalu I am a wife, mom, friend, boss lady, and a girl always on a mission! This list can go on and on so I’ll share just a few of my favorite passions with you. I am married to my husband and best friend for 18 years and counting! I get the honor of raising 3 amazing children Ahlaya 19, Marques 17, and Kaiauna 14 turning 15. I am the Women’s Ministry Leader at my local church. I get the privilege of encouraging and empowering women to walk out their purpose, whether it’s to be the best mom, wife, student, or becoming the best leader they can become. I’m very passionate about fighting for a cause bigger than myself. One of the many causes is the fight to end sex trafficking locally and globally. All of which has lead me to be the founder and owner of Beautiful Fight Box.
What exactly is Beautiful Fight?
Beautiful Fight Box is a Monthly faith-based and women’s lifestyle subscription box. It’s a movement of Beautiful Fighters, fighting for a cause bigger than themselves. The Box was created to Inform, Inspire and Give Back. We inform our subscribers about our unique featured products and the story behind who made them and whom they empower. Our intentions are to inspire others to fight for a cause and purchase with a purpose. For every box that is purchased, 10% of the proceeds is donated to a cause of the month.
What inspired you to start Beautiful Fight?
Four years ago, while on a mission trip in Cambodia. I set out to change the world but instead it changed me. My eyes where open to the realization that feeding a child a meal for one day or volunteering at an orphanage wasn’t going to end poverty and sex trafficking overnight. I felt as if my mission work was a temporary fix to massive problem, it’s like putting a band aid over a big gaping wound when it’s definitely going to need more than a band aid. On this trip I also learned about organizations that were alleviating poverty by providing education, tools and sustainable income in safe working conditions. This was a powerful example of the saying, “give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” This is what inspired me to start Beautiful Fight. I was able to hear firsthand stories about women being empowered to support and provide for their families, children able to receive an education and communities that were able to rebuild and become livable again.
How did you come up with the name?
The name came from my own personal battles, struggles, and experiences. Which lead me to understand my purpose, to fight for those who can’t fight for themselves. A fight, to be looked at as being ugly, shameful and messy but God sees them as beautiful. We all have a Beautiful Fight Story that has the power to encourage, strengthen, and build someone’s faith.
What is your favorite part about running Beautiful Fight?
My favorite part about running Beautiful Fight is partnering with other organizations, learning about their story, the people who make the products, who we empower them and knowing the many lives we are able to impact.
What is your least favorite part about running Beautiful Fight?
My least favorite part about running Beautiful Fight is managing and balancing budgets. But knowing that people are being impacted makes it worth it all.
Is there a favorite product in the boxes?
My favorite product would be our Beautiful Fighter mug. It goes very well my coffee obsession.
Do you switch the products every month or every box?
Yes, every month we curate different monthly themes and feature different products. We also have 3 exclusive boxes like our BF Body Box, Home Box, and Teen Box that are sold in our shop. These products are usually switched out every 3 months.
What makes you different from other subscriptions boxes out there?
What makes us different from other subscriptions boxes is the ability to give back to multiple organizations around the world. Each box we sell can create a ripple effect and potentially change the lives of women, child(ren), families, communities and even a country.
You also give back with every purchase, can you tell us about that?
Yes, we give back 10% of our proceeds to faith-based nonprofit organizations each month. It’s another way to support establish nonprofits that aren’t selling products, but running orphanages, rescue homes, shelters, clinics and providing physical, spiritual, and finical support through their missions.
How do you spread the word about your company?
Do you have any advice for fellow entrepreneurs?
My advice for fellow entrepreneurs is don’t be afraid to share your passion with others and surround yourself with people that believe in your vision.
