We had the good fortune of connecting with Litaa Allen and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Litaa, how do you think about risk?
I could honestly write a book. I think about risk in segments. I have anxiety so i try not to do anything that would potentially trigger me or stress me out to be completely honest. With that being said, i am a risk taker. HairTherapyVI was a risk. Becoming a life coach was also a risk, but they were risks i was willing to take. Risks that i don’t regret taking. I am a firm believer in doing the things you love & not things you feel you have to do. I grew up watching people work at the same company, in the same position for years, with the goal of collecting a check once they retired. I get it, but i don’t want that. I rather take risks. God is definitely in control of my life & he has an almost annoying sense of humor sometimes. Waking up & deciding to be an entrepreneur is a risk i take every day, but i love it here!
Please tell us more about your career. We’d love to hear what sets you apart from others, what you are most proud of or excited about. How did you get to where you are today professionally. Was it easy? If not, how did you overcome the challenges? What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way. What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story?
Well, idk what sets me apart from others because I try to focus on myself. I do know what I have to offer and that’s talent and personality. Through trial and error, tough situations and unexpected challenges, I’m in a space in my life where I’m accomplishing so much. No it was not easy to get here and I’m still working hard to keep improving. We never stop learning, never stop growing. I just want the world to know that HairTherapyVI is a lifestyle, not just a brand. I want people to get used to taking care of both their physical and mental, and being comfortable doing so.
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?
My favorite spot in Huntsville is Monte Sano. I’m an island baby who grew up camping, hiking and everything in between. I LOVE being up on the mountain, hiking a trail in the fresh air. Puts everything into perspective when you can appreciate nature around you.
Other than that, all I do is eat. The rest of the trip would consist of hitting up different food spots for sure. Covid safe of course! Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Definitely want to dedicate this shootout to my husband David. Without him, I would not be able to do what I do.
