What is Benita’s Passion?

What better time to celebrate a woman with such an inspirational passion, than now, around Women's History Month? Often, we think of Women's History Month in terms of honoring accomplishments, but it can also be about empowering an entire sisterhood through self-love. Benita has been mentoring and encouraging women in her community and daily life through coaching, training, and unique philosophies that she has developed over the past 30 years. It is her heart’s desire to see every woman win.

Benita’s Personal Life

Benita walks by faith and not by sight, for she believes that God will always be able to show her the way even in the darkest of moments. As a wife of 22 years, she has gone through many challenges and changes in terms of love and relationships. She has grown and learned from these relationships and weaves their lessons into her business. She has one amazing son and three amazing bonus children and grandchildren that bring her continuous joy.

Benita’s Brand

She is the owner and creator of A Unique Heart, a company that is the cultivation of all the passion and effort that she has put together to build a company with the environment of not just female empowerment, but self-love and realization. “If we can will it then we can do it” is the motto of her brand.

One of the key products of her line is called “Love in A Box” and it was developed during a time of realization. Benita realized that our society is lacking time put aside for self-love and reflection. She realized without time for oneself, our daily society is lacking. Without self-love and reflection, there is a lack of growth. “Love in a Box” allows you to Reset, Rediscover, and Reconnect with who you are in your present season of life. “Love in a Box” is a self-care package developed for each person to build their individual value. It is your “me time, one of a kind” love box. It is an inspirational gift that is perfect for a busy world and has all of the right resources and tools inside to help you escape away a day to yourself, a staycation, or simply some alone time at home to reconnect with you.

This is the perfect gift to buy for yourself (cause we all deserve a treat) or to gift to a friend or partner. In just 18 months, Benita has taken her company from an idea to being a household name throughout the city of Houston and expanding to 77 cities, 21 states and 3 countries. She is now known as a well-respected businesswoman and a shining member of her community. She was featured in Voyage Magazine in November, 2019.
