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

Hi Brittany, how do you think about risk?
I am a big risk taker! I mean am I scared to take risks? Yes, but I feel it’s better to know the outcome than to wonder what if. Starting this business was definitely a risk because, I am fresh out of the military and I was so used to guaranteed money. Being my own boss is very different. The amount of money I make depends solely on me. All in all it’s still one of the best choices I have made in my life so far!

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Well, I’ve barely touched the tip of the iceberg. What sets me apart are my ideas that I cannot expose but the ideas that I have in store for my business I have not seen any other nail tech execute.

I am most proud of taking the leap of faith that I did for myself and overall for my family. I am excited for the future of my business, I will definitely be a name to remember for the beauty industry.

I am still overcoming my challenges but what I’ve learned so far is; change is necessary.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I love being outside so, some of my favorite things and places are sweet water creek In Douglassville, Piedmont park, and of course downtown. I love riding downtown at night to look at the lights.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My husband! He has been so patient with my dreams and goals. I am so grateful to have him to lean on when it comes to EVERYTHING really. He’s my #1 supporter. He pushed me to start when I was hesitant. Also, our sun. He has definitely pulled out a part in us both to take risks for the better. Just to give him as care free of a life as possible as a kid and young adult is one of our main goals.
