I Am Woman
Tell us about Yourself
I have always been about self-worth and women empowerment as far back as I can remember. My experiences as a makeup artist and teacher have shaped my passion for bringing the best out of people and their situations.
When Life Gives You Lemons
How would you turn a negative situation into something positive?
Turning a negative situation into something positive can be tricky. The best way that works for me is to remember that there is hope and light at the end of every tunnel. With that vision, I know that my faith will bring me through tough times.
What and/or Who inspired you to follow your dream?
It is not one or one thing has inspired my dream. My mom, along with my career as a teacher and make-up artist have instilled real life experiences that have shaped my vision to be an entrepreneur. Even though I am new to the business world, I always knew that my overall mission in life was to inspire and empower the next person. I took it to the next level by expanding on that idea into an actual business to empower women.
Keeping Up With the Bosses
Tell us about Your Business
Lipstick Khroniclez is an urban online boutique that was started to expand on my make-up artistry. It was then that I realized that I not only can talk about the make-up trends to my clients but have a real live and active women empowerment movement. Lipstick Khroniclez was launched as an online boutique that expresses emPOWered dialogue using graphic t-shirts. I am still in the beginning stages, but ultimately want to have a full brick and mortar space where women of all colors can support and inspire each other.
What advice would you give to an upcoming Entrepreneur?
Follow your heart! I live by, "Do what makes you happy". With that in mind, do you. Start with your passion and let it take the lead in planning and developing your business.
TogetHER WE WIN
What's your definition of Women Empowerment?
I am all about Women Empowerment. I use the "POW" in emPOWerment to represent our journey as women of color with our beauty, stories, and strength. It not only means self-empowerment but also empowering the next woman and the next woman. This chain of strength should be constantly moving and growing in numbers with every experience.
Seeds of Sisterhood
What's your ingredients to a long-lasting sisterhood?
Loyalty, Trustworthy & Support. I stand by these values and exhibit this in my day one friends. My circle of sisterhood includes facets of all walks of life but they always support and are down for the cause of empowering each other.
Ready. Set. Goal
What is your Goal in life?
Expanding on Lipstick Khroniclez, I want to open a brick and mortar space where it can spread the word of the power of empowerment!!! Eventually I would like to have a brick and mortar space which will not only feature my women emPOWered graphic teez, but a kollection of LK lipstick poutz! As a unit, women can come in, relax, & express dialogue and enjoy the beauty of being an emPOWered woman.
Keep Encouraging Yourself
What advice can you give yourself?
I constantly encourage myself daily because starting your own business is no easy cookie. I push myself and repeat daily that my passion will come to fruition, soon!
