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

Hi Katelyn, how do you define success?
Success is a complex and vague term for most individuals. Success is mainly identified as wealth, in reality success is what you make it, yes, it may sound cliche but it’s in fact true. Ask yourself what is success? Is it rolling in money or is it as simple as having a productive day? Success in my opinion is what you do on a everyday basis that contributes to you and others around you. Having a successful is merely a stream of income that serves you a great purpose of not having to clock in. Are you blessing others with the blessing that the universe bestowed upon you or are you hiding in the weeds of selfishness and greed. Granted, we do work hard for what we do obtain whether that be materialistic or in revenue but does $20 bucks to someone in need is? I personally love giving to anyone that’s in need to some that may make me in fool but to me it means I am impacting my brother’s and sister’s. Everyday we wake up to another is a pure and utter blessing, you have purpose when you can walk freely in a grocery store or out on the town. We are here for the pursuit of happiness but let’s not forget to look back at those that doesn’t have that same chance.

Success, is a mindset of perseverance, persistence, determination, and resilience, I would say humbleness but it’s ok to loud about and proud about yourself ! Humbleness is the key attribute to have, it’s very grounding , I myself am humble, you also have to know when speak up and be heard. The way you measure success is the way you measure your morals, values and beliefs, make sure your standing on a strong foundation of great characteristic traits and you can never fail even if you lose at some point, trust me you will rise higher than you were before. We are successful every day we aim for the stars and are able to open our front door! Be grateful, thankful, and cheerful to say I’m living a successful life even when life throws’ you a curveball , are you going to move out the way? Or chase it and make a home run! Remember to live, love, and laugh!

What should our readers know about your business?
I am the founder and C.E.O of my company Katelyn Michelle, and I am a connoisseur for quality extensions and fashion. When starting “Phenom Femme”’ I had three things: faith, passion and courage. My eagerness to explore this lucrative business of extensions and fashion engulfed me until I took the first step.

My brand name is not merely the simplicity of an ordinary business name , Phenom is an abbreviation for “Phenomenal” and “Femme” is French for woman, going back to my French roots. I have fostered this name for several years, and on October 13th of 2020 I finally thought of a brand name that mirrors the reason for my company’s operations. What is a Phenomenal Woman to you? Here at “Phenom Femme” I believe Phenomenal Women are love, we are intelligent, we are assertive, we are black, we are brown, and olive, we come in many different shapes and sizes. My company represents the pure essence of women along with the beauty of being imperfect and impeccable works of art.

I have a testimony that speaks volume to what determination and persistence is. My company is open to all who appreciate true quality. Here at “Phenom Femme” my top priority is YOU, I will go above and beyond to meet your expectations! I have done extensive research for a long duration of time to present top quality products and retail for our customers. It is imperative for “Phenom Femme” to provide you with a Quality you can’t deny.

Phenom Femme started as a manifestation and today we celebrate a Phenomenal Successful Woman! Thanks to you, the poised, phenomenal, and strong woman that knows what “Quality over Quantity” is all about. Enjoy !

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would take my friend to a nice get away, maybe the virgin islands or Puerto Rico. We would go shopping, have a spa day, maybe hit a good laid back lounge, of course we would visit the beach, we would go on a boat ride and etc. My type of fun is day drinking on a warm sunny day laughing and enjoying every aspect of a good time. I am a planner, anytime I’m planning a trip trust me we’re going to be outside most of the time and to end the night we may indulge in some good red wine or chardonnay and chill out !
