Tell us a little about your business.
My business helps women, men and children embrace their natural curly hair with expert cutting, coloring and product recommendations based on their hair type and curl pattern.
What services have you utilized at SOURCE RW and how have you benefitted?
I have taken the Business Owners Series. This class really helped me understand marketing, cash flow, and cash projections.
What made you interested in being a business owner?
I got laid off from my job of 6 years in 2016 and wanted to put my destiny in my own hands by becoming an entrepreneur.
What have you enjoyed most about being a business owner?
I have enjoyed learning about being a business owner and running a business. I didn’t realize that there are intricate things businesses owners are doing. I also enjoy the self-development that has taken place in my life because of this lifestyle change.
What have you enjoyed least about being a business owner?
I think the part I like the least is the hours you must put in. Even in my free time, my mind is constantly thinking about things I can be doing to improve my business. The agony is well worth it!!
Was there ever a point when you wanted to quit?
No way! Either I will work hard for myself growing my own company or work for someone else, growing their company!
Was there ever a point where you realized you had “made it”?
I think I will feel like I have “made it” when I am paying employees and when Kurlykoils is not renting a space.
If you could tell aspiring business owners just one thing before their journey – that you wish you had known prior to starting your journey – what would it be?
There will be some good days and some bad days. Most business owners don’t survive their first couple of years in business. Keep pushing! The satisfaction of being your own boss will be your driving force through the tough times!
