We had the good fortune of connecting with Mahogany Holyfield and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Mahogany, we’d love to hear more about your end-goal, professionally.
To be truthful, there is no end goal. I want my legacy to go on forever. Even after I am gone from this world.
By the end of my career I want to have multiple businesses. I would hope to have a nail school, a nail product company, and some sort of multi beauty classes. Not only am I nail tech but I also offer teeth whitening & tooth gem services. I would want to incorporate those services into classes for others to take.
What should our readers know about your business?
First, I would like to say that I was blessed to have a mother who was already an entrepreneur. She taught me so many things about business at a very young age which helped me create a path to jumpstart my business without fail.
I started my business at the age of 16. I started out selling lashes and waistbeads at different pop-up shops. I was able to learn different methods of marketing and product startups which help my business skyrocket!
I am proud to say that I never let my business die. Sometimes I would get discouraged, but I never walked away. Because I started out selling products at pop-up shops locally, when I started doing nails I already had an audience/following from my product page.
I want the world to know that social media is always changing. Although I have had my business pages for years, I have saw so many changes be made to the platforms that we use. As a business owner who uses social media to make 70% of my income, always look out for the changes that are being made to the platforms. They can make or break your business quickly!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Atlanta is such a lively, thriving city with so many things to do! When I have friends or family that come into town, this is where I take them.

I would like to recognize a friend of mine who is no longer here on Earth physically but is still here in all of our hearts: Terrance Oliver.
I would also like to recognize my mother Candace Holyfield who put me on the path of success.
Lastly, I would like to shoutout my 3 siblings, Jorden Holyfield, Aiden Parker, and Brooklyn Randle.
