About Amber Venz Box
I have always loved personal style. My earliest memories of elementary school are of my mom buying me outfits with coordinating hair bows and shoes and me calling my best friend each night so that we could coordinate our outfits for school the next day.
Growing up, my parents focused our spare time on creative projects and my dad, a business owner, encouraged entrepreneurship. By middle school I had created a vintage denim business, reconstructing old jeans into denim skirts and selling them to my classmates. Throughout my teens and early twenties I designed, created and wore my own dresses. One of those dresses hit cult status when a Bravolebrity, my friend Courtney Kerr, wore it on the season finale of her show; it appeared in People Magazine and I launched a pop-up dress line to sell them en masse to the public.
Professionally, I started my career as a shop girl at a luxury women’s boutique, invested my summers in fashion internships in LA with stylists and NY with designer Thakoon. I launched a jewelry line that was sold in major department stores across the southeast United States and in early 2010, at the age of 22, I launched this site, VENZEDITS.
After a few months of running VENZEDITS, I was addicted to documenting and sharing my outfits, favorite trends and shopping hauls, the only problem was, it took up so much of my time and I was unable to monetize my work. As a young girl, living at home, eating cereal and investing every dime I made into the growth of my jewelry line, I couldn’t afford to spend time on projects that did not pay my bills.
In 2011, my then-boyfriend, now-husband, Baxter Box, and I launched rewardStyle, a monetization platform and turn-key business solution for premium digital style influencers, like myself. You can read plenty about our company elsewhere if you are interested, but the highlights are that we have worked around the clock for five years building the business and what started as a project in our tiny apartment, is now a large, multi-national business with 200 team members across six offices around the world- London, New York, Dallas, San Francisco, Sao Paulo and Shanghai.
Our most recent project is LIKEtoKNOW.it, a service that allows registered users to simply “like” an Instagram to get an email to their inbox with that image and the associated product information- basically a mini-blog post to your inbox with details about the style images you like. (Are you registered yet? Do it! You wont be sorry. Join more than 2 million others and follow our Instagram handles @LIKEtoKNOW.it and @LIKEtoKNOW.it.home!)
We are fiercely proud of our team and of the company that we have built and of the thousands of digital style influencers around the world that have been able to use rewardStyle as their turn-key business solution to earn a healthy living do what they love: sharing beautiful content.
As you can tell, I am a full-time working mom, living in Dallas, Texas with my husband, Baxter, daughter, Birdie, Rottweiler puppies and soon-to-be baby boy, Boyce. In the last year we have spent a lot of time focusing on our Christian faith, investing time on our family and creating a life and a home that we love. I steal moments to create content and you can find my outfits, peeks into my work life, the trends I love and a lot of what I am buying for me and my family across VENZEDITS.com and @VENZEDITS.
