Everyone always ask me how do I do it but it’s not about how I do it it’s about what I believe I can do walking by faith and keeping an open mind-set while doing it. No dream is to big and if your dream doesn’t scare you then why are you chasing it? I was told many ofttimes I couldn’t open my own salon alone and yet I did it and twice along with a boutique and beauty supply as well.
Growing up I watched one of my favorite aunts Helen Collins open up her enterprise and from then I always had a vision to have my own enterprise some day. Every time I went to the shop id say aunt Helen when your old can you give this to me? I don’t think she realized how serious I was or how much she influenced and motivated my mind. Over the years I sat and would always draw up plans and things I wanted in my salon.
June 1,2012 id finally found a place which seemed to be reasonable and I was told it was going to be getting renovated soon but I still had some renovating to do my self but I still took on the challenge. it took me some time to actually complete tho project at the time I hadn’t fully graduated just yet and was in and out of an unhealthy relationship and was not focusing on my goal over the next few months I slowly got things together and had a grand opening April 2013.
I ran into a few short issues but nothing I couldn’t get past and very quickly around the same time I also purchased a beauty supply store I figured I could be running
as well. Things were going great money was ok and I got hit with some news I was pregnant june 2013 and also single with 4 other boys as well. Due to my pregnancy complications I would be in and out of the shop over the next few months and in september I decided to enroll in the instructors program which also became a hit and miss with me being pregnant was hard to attend on a regular as well.
Id say around late october id ran into an issue with my salon city code had come
out did an inspection and condemn the building which left me with the only option to relocate after all the time and energy and money id invested I was forced to move. That didn’t stop me I was back up and running in a better location in no time I was back up and running but juts didn’t have the passion for it anymore the lack of support and respect around the community just didn’t drive me to continue running the business. Id began researching more into what it was id been saying I wanted to do which was become a Trichologist.
Trichologists are hair and scalp specialists (one type of skin specialist) who diagnose the causes of hair fall, hair breakage, hair thinning, miniaturization of hairs ; diseases of the scalp and treat according to cause. Trichology is the branch of dermatology that deals with the scientific study of the health of hair and scalp.
So yeah pretty cool huh I figured why waste my time with the salon when I can gain more knowledge in my field and help millions and expand my business and brand in the future. So I’ve since closed my salon moved to Atlanta enrolled in the trichology program started my product line and I’m pursuing an even bigger dream. I’m currently working on my product line “P.S. I LOVE YOU REGROWTH SYSTEM” and I’m planning to relaunch this coming fall starting with the candy cream and the sugar drops.

I’ve put all my other ventures on hold to focus on this one product research after research night after night coming up with very ingredient to best fit to grow healthy longer thicker hair. Which will help millions one day soon and be one of the leading regrowth systems in the country sold in stores nationwide. My love for hair won’t stop here ill soon open another business to be able to teach classes possibly a beauty school for the less fortunate that’s been in m y thoughts lately but not plan set just yet.
So being an entrepreneur and mother of five isn’t easy at times can get very overwhelming as well and as most know cosmetologist are some of the most unorganized people I know lol I have yet to meet one who is very organized. When it all comes down to it your success is determined by what you are willing to sacrifice for it and how much you can really learn from your failures. They always say third times a charm so my next move ill bet will and has been my best move yet.
