We share entrepreneurial stories to inspire great ideas...

Crystal Leochko

I love life and try to enjoy each moment! Yes, we are still on our fertility journey, but we have a fabulous life with my step-daughter Mia, and our two dog’s, Harley and Daffidill. We live in Waterdown, close to hiking trails, so most weekends, you will catch us on a family hike. I am extremely competitive, so playing, or watching sports is a must. Board games are my absolute favourite way to hang out with friends. I have always loved entertaining, so pre-covid, we always had a dinner party or wine and cheese nights going on.  Connecct with Crystal at: www.FertilityBlooms.com

Tell us a little something about your business...

Like most of us, we come to where we are, because of bumps and turns on our road of life. I have been an entrepreneur as long as, I can remember, and I cannot image a life where I was not building or running a business. My passion is marketing, but while struggling with infertility, I took one of those turns on the road, which led me to where I am now. My mission is now to help women remove harmful toxins from their daily beauty routines with a line of products, I created called Bloomiss.

I used to be the girl, that would be lathered on body butters and sprays. Loving everything that smelled delicious, I would buy any and every type of beauty product out there.

While battling infertility, I became aware of the harmful effects that ingredients in these products were doing to my health, mainly my fertility. I made a promise to myself to try and help as many women as possible, have access to clean natural products, that worked! That was the key, they still needed so smell good, feel good, and actually do the job they were intended to do.

Bloomiss is a line of clean natural beauty, skincare, and aromatherapy. All the products are formulated to feed your skin, so you look and feel your absolute best, while giving you the pampering luxury feeling of products you deserve.

While on the path to educate women about the danger’s, that toxins and chemicals in everyday products can do, I seen an even bigger need in helping guide women on their fertility journey. I became a certified fertility coach, to help provide the tools and support, while on the road of infertility.

Tying together, Bloomiss and my fertility coaching, Bloomiss donates one dollar from its products to Blooming Hopes, a non-profit helping women with infertility.

When was your lightbulb moment?

I had a big Oprah Ah ha moment!
Having a type A personality means; Go Go Go and never being able to shut off my mind, always thinking, moving, doing. While struggling with infertility, I was constantly told to relax, calm down, don’t stress, try to meditate, the list goes on. These things are not so easy for the type A’s of the world.
One day my friend was making bath bombs in my kitchen, she was on the phone and it was getting late, so I thought, how hard can this be. I started mixing something and before I knew it, I wasn’t thinking about anything, not even my infertility. I was just doing! It was my Ah ha moment! I found my form of meditation and that was the beginning of Bloomiss.

What are your three words of advice?

One – There are books on this, and it’s changed my life. I have my huge goal, and from there, I have broken it down so many times, that I know the one tiny thing, I need to do each and every day, that if I do that, it will get me to my big goal.
Action – Take action and always keep moving forward. I see so many people, waiting for the right time, or for everything to be perfect. Imperfect action will get you to where you want to go.
Focus – Get laser focused on what you want, and don’t get caught up with all the shiny objects. (I know, easier said that done)

Three words of advice...

Keep moving forward on your path, ignore all the noise, and stay focused on what you want.
