Never underestimate the power of social media in the age of e-commerce.

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, many entrepreneurs have had to shift their businesses from brick-and-mortar to a digital storefront in order to stay afloat amid the public health crisis. Despite the economic hardships that have come as a result of the virus, digital entrepreneurs have still found ways to flourish amid the pandemic.

Mariee Revere is the CEO and founder of MoonXCosmetics, a handmade vegan skincare line catering to all skin types with an assortment of products ranging from natural hydrating oils, cleansers, body conditioners, and face masks. This week the 20-year old entrepreneur celebrated a huge milestone on Twitter announcing she had made $1 million in 8 minutes off of what she said would be a “million-dollar restock.”
