What is unique about your business?
My products work for everyone! Individuals of any ethnicity/race, hair types/hair textures. Which is AWESOME!

What are your most valuable skills and how do they help you gain success with your business?
I believe my most valuable skills are self motivation and networking. Both are important to starting a business. Its one thing to want to start a business and another to get behind it each day and to see it unfold.
Networking today is essential, there’s no way around it. The more people you meet, talk to, and collaborate with the better.
How do you balance your life while having a growing business?
Balancing life while having a growing business has been pretty easy for me. Currently, I’m single, don’t have kids, and I’m finishing school online. Because of this, I felt this was the perfect time to start my own business.
Which was more rewarding: making your startup a success, or being able to continue keeping it successful? Why?
Being able to continue keeping it successful is more rewarding to me. First, you need to find what success is to ones self. Mine is longevity, I want to be in this business changing lives, educating others, and continue making my passion my career. It was so rewarding to hear my first customer say. “Thank you, I love your products and I love my hair.” That’s success to me! I want feel that feeling forever!
