age: 31 | Small Business Owner | Fizz Bizz LLC
Working with her hands has always been something Chalissa Russell enjoys. And owning her own small business, Fizz Bizz, lets her do just that while making bath bombs.
Chalissa enjoys being the face of her business and seeing the joy her customers get from using products she has created. “We design our products to help as a way to relax and escape from the stress of our everyday lives,” she explained. “And we couldn’t be happier with our results.”
Chalissa also works on Sunday mornings at Williams Memorial United Methodist Church, serving coffee for the church members. She and her boys also enjoy delivering bath bombs to local businesses in town who are nominated to receive them as part of challenges she hosts on Fizz Bizz LLC’s Facebook page. She donates $1 of every item sold back at any local charity event Fizz Bizz participates in.
Best advice you’ve ever received:
“REMEMBER TO CHOOSE YOUR BAT- TLES WISELY, BUT MOSTLY, REMEM- BER TO KEEP YOUR BOYS LITTLE AS LONG AS YOU CAN!” — LACY MCMILLEN, REGARDING MOTHERHOOD
Moving her business into a building of its own is a priority for Chalissa. She works hard to get her brand noticed and looks forward to being able to say she owns a nationally-recognized bath bomb company in the future.
Spending time with her husband, Garreth, and sons, Garren and Stryder, is Chalissa’s favorite pastime – especially on a Carnival cruise ship. Being a mother is her greatest personal accomplishment, and Chalissa cherishes every moment spent with them. “I try to live my best, remembering that my boys are only this little today,” she said. “Tomorrow they will be older and bigger!”
Name something about you that very few people know:
“Fizz Bizz LLC started as a Bunco gift cop-out and an itch to try something new. We never knew it would go as far as it has! Garreth and I are truly blessed.”
