We had the good fortune of connecting with Brenda Jones and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Brenda, we’d love to start by asking you about lessons learned. Is there a lesson you can share with us?
The most important lesson I’ve learn throughout my career and starting a business, you have to keep positive people around, be diligent, work hard and stay focused on the path you want for your business

What should our readers know about your business?
Miss Beez Natural Essentials is an organic hair care product line. My products focus on hydration and moisture, providing and maintaining it. Being a cosmetologist and hair artist mainly working with African American natural hair I wanted to have a line with all products that is formulated to focus on a system that help with and maintain moisture before any styling to the hair .Transitioning from doing hair to create your own hair products out of pocket has definitely been challenging in all areas, but with hard work, being diligent, staying focused and keeping positive people around me it is rewarding. Lessons I’ve learned are to have patients, stay focused on your path, being knowledgeable and understanding your business. I want people to know my brand is about hair care for the African American families and it will have a storefront in the future giving job opportunities and growth within our community.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Well in New Orleans it’s so hard to pick we have so many great places to go eat, but here goes Barrow’s because i love seafood and they catfish is to die for and Willie Mae’s for soul food one of best in our city. For drinks and to hang out definitely Caesars for happy hour and for fun we can go on frenchman for live music.
