What I need help with

My background as an entrepreneur

My current challenges

I would like a mentor that has knowledge on the beauty industry, and/or how to sell products in general that targets consumers online and in store. I have difficulty getting customers, so I need a mentor that has a great deal of knowledge on attracting customers (whether online or in person), finding your nitch group, and keeping current customers (re-orders). Also any assistance on small scale manufacturing and package labeling would be great too. I do my own research daily, and google has been a great asset, but now I need someone that has been through this before, and succeeded.


About my venture

Started 2014

I have always had a fascination with great skin and hair since I started modeling when I was 13 years old. I grew into the beauty industry as a creative writer for a fashion magazine, a promotional manager for a start-up beauty company, and my last role as a pharmacy beauty manager. I have learned that the multi-billion dollar business thrives on looking good and feeling better. I narrowed down my interest to skincare and hair care for problematic concerns such as eczema, dry skin, acne-prone skin, hair loss, alopecia, and stunt hair growth. The products I currently sell are all hand-crafted by me, and it took years of research to narrow down the natural ingredients I use today. I love my business because many people have seen great results, as well as, feel so much better inside and out due to my products. I hope to one day have my products in stores all over the world, but first I wish to focus on NYC and the eastern region.
