You have been an entrepreneur for over 10 years, how has the hair care/beauty business changed since you first started? The biggest change I’ve noticed in the beauty business is the increased confidence and education of consumers. The ingredients list of a product is a top concern for them in addition to the product price and the promised effects. Another change I’ve seen is a lot of people sharing their experiences and offering help. I really enjoy this sense of community especially in the natural hair space.

What’s your biggest accomplishment? My biggest accomplishment is building a community where I can highlight my favorite small businesses. To have a small business owner call me up excited about how many sales they received and how many hits they got after one of my blog post lets me know I’m doing my job for both my readers and the businesses that support me.
When I first started writing this month’s review, I truly was at a loss for words. So much has happen in a month’s time. Last month, I wrote that business was an uphill battle. This month, things started flowing with ease again. In May, I knew before the month started that it was going to be a battle, but going into June I knew things would do a 180, which it has been. I experienced so much at the end of May and start of June but it made me stronger. Furthermore, I debated sharing what Lisa and I discussed in our mentor call, but I settled on the fact that her advice should be shared.
