It’s our first blog post, and to celebrate our launch, we want to help you get to know us better! We did a little Q & A with Jamie, our Ameena founder and president, to give you a better picture not only of our brand, but also of the people behind it.
Q: What inspired you to start Ameena?
A: I’ve been in the mattress industry for 14 years, and I saw this as a great way to provide people with an excellent product that was easier to understand than your typical mattress. I wanted to provide people with a service that clarifies and simplifies mattress shopping.
Everything about the Ameena shopping process is easier for customers — from ordering the mattress to receiving it — and we’re just going to keep streamlining things as we move forward.
Q: What’s been the most exciting part about the process of getting the company up and running?
A: It’s been absolutely exhilarating to see how Ameena started as an idea and has transformed into this tangible product. There’s been so much planning and product development, and now we have a true, working mattress that meets all of our expectations and hopes. Now I’m looking forward to seeing how consumers respond to Ameena, and working forward from there.
Q: What keeps you motivated?
A: Personal development is really motivating for me, and I get really pumped about tasks and goals too. Whenever I think about the end results of a plan, like Ameena, I always feel a renewed push to keep doing what I’m doing so that I can achieve these goals.
Q: What helps you relax?
A: To relax I like to do a few things. I love to curl up with a book or a movie, but I also love spending time with my family and friends. Also, I have a fantastic craft room, and I really enjoy spending a few hours scrapbooking in there to unwind.
Q: Describe your lifestyle in five words. Why did you choose these words?
A: Jokingly, because I’m pregnant, my lifestyle consists right now of being hungry, restricted, tired, stressed, and feeling lots of anticipation. There’s so much to look forward to with the new baby coming!
All jokes aside though, I’d have to say that my lifestyle is busy, memorable, organized, enjoyable, and health-conscious. These are probably the most accurate adjectives to describe my lifestyle and personality. I always try to look on the bright side of any situation, and I’m always trying to keep things moving forward, which contributes to the organized and busy part.
And there you have it, folks! That’s our president! Keep an eye out for more posts from us, and keep living your life. #OneMattress
