Critics say, “women can’t have it all” – a family, thriving business, luxurious lifestyle and girl power – but Mary Seats, aka Mz. Skittlez, has been proving them wrong since 2011 when she started her streetwear brand, Cupcake Mafia, with a mere $300. Despite launching with only a few hundred bucks, Skittlez showcased her unstoppable determination by turning Cupcake Mafia into a multimillion-dollar brand.
In five short years, the company hit $2.4 million in sales with inventory sold in over 1,900 stores and 49 countries, rightfully securing its place as one of the largest pop culture fashion brands worldwide.
Today, she has built a prominent reputation as the Kris Jenner X Olivia Pope of Marketing. With an innate talent for turning small businesses into multimillion-dollar brands, she is a highly sought-after brand strategist connected to some of the hottest celebrities including Kandi Burress, Missy Elliot, B. Simone, Theresa Roamer and many others.
As a mom, wife, mentor, speaker, CEO and founder of several multimillion-dollar brands, including The Icing Agency, Gurl Mobb and, of course, the Cupcake Mafia, Skittlez is showing the world that she hasn’t merely “found” a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow … she’s filling it with gold for herself and other girl bosses.
