What advice would you give someone who seeks to become an entrepreneur?
The advice I would give someone who seeks to become an entrepreneur is to never give up on yourself or your dreams, even in the times when it seems like you're the only one who believes in them! Surround yourself with like minded people so it'll keep you focused and enhance your drive. Get a mentor in the field you're looking to go into so you can learn from their experiences in business (the mistakes they made and most importantly the keys to success in the industry). Remember health is wealth. More than anything, embrace the journey and live in every moment, because they will all be part of your testimony and legacy.
What inspired you to become an entrepreneur?
Prior to the march of 2020 (the pandemic), I spent almost five years bartending in the Atlanta club and nightlife scene. Two years into me bartending, I began to notice the aesthetic effects alcohol was having on my body. The toxins were stored in my thighs behind fat pockets, creating more noticeable cellulite and making the skin on my stomach lose. Being that I worked in many of the clubs that required uniforms that showcased our bodies, I was determined to find a natural solution to fix the problem because for me surgical procedures were just not an option.
Let’s rewind back to 2013 after having my daughter I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease and decided I want to heal in a holistic way, so I went on a naturopathic journey for two years. In that period I obsessed over wellness and learned a lot about natural herbs and their detoxifying properties. Now fast forward to 2017 me bartending in the club and needing to find a solution for my body. I tried several different body wraps and non-invasive treatments for skin tightening and inch loss and saw some difference, but because of my previous learnings I knew I needed something that could penetrate down to the cellular level in the body. So that’s when the light bulb came on and I became the herbalist in the lab crafting a formula to give a solution to the problem like myself that most women have.
