We had the good fortune of connecting with Denecia Stokley and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Denecia, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
My thought process behind my business is to make women feel sexy especially mothers. As a mother, we can sometimes lose sight of ourselves and what makes us feel sexy again after a baby. I want women to know that those stretch marks, that extra hanging skin in the stomach area, and that extra weight is still sexy so tap into it.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
House of Sleeping Beauty allows women to awaken their inner beauty with our lingerie, loungewear, & beauty/bedtime products. House of Sleeping Beauty is set apart from others because our pieces and products introduce a dash of spice, classy, and seductive look all without sacrificing sensuality. We do not want women to be naive and blissful of their beauty but instead awaken their inner & outer beauty with our lingerie, loungewear, & beauty/bedtime products.
Creating House of Sleeping Beauty LLC has made me proud to know that women do feel good with the quality lingerie, loungewear, bed/body products we provide. It gives me great pleasure to know that Victoria Secret started this small and that with hard work and dedication, House of Sleeping Beauty will be as big of a business soon.
My daughter is how I got where I am business-wise. I want to build generational wealth, have different streams of income, and work for myself. It is not easy because I am still facing challenges today with being consistent but I do not give up and I will not give up. I say some affirmations and continue to manifest because my time is coming.
A lesson I learned along the way is do what works for you and not what everyone else is doing. Additionally, I learned every idea I have, I can execute as long as I have a plan. Also, it is okay to fail sometimes but it doesn’t mean you have to give up. Go back to the drawing board and try a different route.
I want the world to know I started House of Sleeping Beauty LLC as a single mom during a pandemic while completing my bachelors in Healthcare Administration a year early. Anything is possible especially for the mothers. Do not ever feel like because you have a kid, your life has to be on hold. LIVE ! What I want the world to know about me is that I will break generation curses and if you don’t see it now, you will feel it later.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I give these shoutouts to my sisters Shacoria Carten & Kierra Mebane for always pushing me to my fullest potential , supporting my every endeavor, and listening to all my ideas even if they are off the wall.
