What do you consider your greatest achievement so far in life?
My greatest achievement I will say is being a mother to two lovely children and ability to run and grow the Bee Daisy brand consistently and successfully for over 6 years
How did your journey into being an entrepreneur start?
Started off from an ADDICTION, I was so addicted to hair.
How was the idea to set up Bee Daisy conceived?
I used to get a lot of compliments regarding my hair and I realized I was doing a lot of free hair consultations for family and friends. I also started purchasing a lot of hairs for family and friends at no cost (no profit added). The volume increased everyday and I thought why not profit from my passion and BOOM Bee Daisy Hair was born.
What motivates you to get out of bed in the morning?
The fact that I can’t be anything else but SUCCESSFUL.
What is the most important life lesson you’ve learned so far?
One thing I have learned so far is that no matter who you are, no matter where you are coming from, whatever it is you have set out to do or become in life, once you do it well (diligently) and you are so passionate about it, it’s only a matter of time the world will hear about you. The world will discover you, the world will look for you!
What is your favourite Quote?
“People don’t grow by accident, they grow by design. Design yourself. Design your future. Success never just happens.
What are you passionate about?
I am so passionate about what I do. Seeing ladies transform with our weaves/wig units, looking all excited and beautiful means everything to me!
What is your take on “women supporting women”?
It is a great concept. Some of us, (Women) tend to be very weak, it is a great feeling to know your fellow women got your back amidst the tribulations some of us (women) encounter.
Do you have any mentors and how have they positively aided your journey towards becoming a successful entrepreneur?
Yes I do. My mentor is Mo Abudu. She has had a positive influence on my life, my journey as an entrepreneur in so many ways and she doesn’t even know it. I look up to her a lot, she has been a constant source of inspiration for me. Her life/journey fuels me with the energy needed to keep pushing.
Her life has taught me to have a positive attitude, to stay focused, to be consistent, to be best at anything I do, to keep the energy level on a 100 at all times, to never give up on my dreams, to give it all it takes at all times. The list is endless!
Looking back at your life so far…. is there anything you would have done differently?
I am deeply thankful to God for how far he has brought me, but if anything, I wish I started even earlier. I wish I took charge earlier. There is still so much to be done.
What would you like to be remembered for?
I would like to be remembered as a successful entrepreneur who is able to fill a lot gaps, meet people’s needs and solve problems with my entrepreneurial skills.
