We had the good fortune of connecting with Ericka Ajanae’ and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Ericka Ajanae’, can you walk us through the thought process of starting your business?
I’ve always taken care of not only my face but my body and received compliments from people around me which made me want to create a natural skincare line. Women and men want their skin to stay hydrated, soft to feel, aromas that are breathtaking and glowy clear skin and I wanted to contribute to it. I remember staying up late researching and studying about different skin types and products. When I would fall asleep I swore God would show me exactly what I wanted so I knew I had no choice but to dive into my vision. I chose to name my company Embodypearl because who wouldn’t want to embody a pearl they are so delicate and rare especially the natural pearls. I’ve started creating body scrubs and lip scrubs and will soon move forward with body butter and hydrating sprays. I have so many ideas I’m just ready to get them out of my head and into everyone’s hands. I can’t wait for everyone to enjoy a new level of skincare.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’m very excited about the launch of my new skincare brand Embodypearl. Skincare is something I’m very passionate about I’ve been working really hard on creating natural products for face and body. Honestly, it’s taken some time but patience is a virtue, and I’m blessed to have a mentor that has been helping me with the process. I’m not all the way where I want to be yet but, I’m working diligently to get there. I have realized that in order to be successful you have to come to the table with your cup half full in order to get your goals accomplished. There is nothing wrong with saying you need help. Anything I do I’m putting my all into it.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Well, I’m fortunate enough to have my best friend in the same city as me but if he wasn’t were gonna make it a movie lol. When we get together we flow as we go as always. Our downtown has endless outdoor activities, sip and paint bike riding, museums, with a beautiful river that flows through downtown. We would have to make an appearance to the rooftop bar to have a sip with a mini photoshoot attached as always. Which is usually why we end up at a nice winery or brewery. Endless laughter pictures and memories being made forever.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I will forever shout out my lord savior Jesus Christ. All of my family and friends its literally too many people that have played so many parts in my life that have made me the amazing woman I am today.
