Reason for starting
I felt as though there was a need that needed to be met in the beauty industry. Clients needed to be more appreciated and professionals should not have to feel like they are living hand to mouth.

How do you define success?
Success to me is having the ability to not only help yourself but, help others around you achieving their dreams without money being a hindrance.

Biggest Success
My biggest success was ceasing to think my business was just a good idea and taking the steps to make my idea a reality.

What is your top challenge and how have you addressed it?
My top challenge in the business is building rapport with people and promoting my company. I’ve given people the ability to trust my company by allowing them to know that their needs are first, allowing them to know they are truly valued and appreciated. I’ve found new ways to promote my company by researching what others have done already!

Who is your most important role model?
My most important role model is my mother because she has always had an entrepreneurial spirit and has always encouraged me to be great in everything that I do.
