We had the good fortune of connecting with Morgan Kelly and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Morgan, what do you want people to remember about you?
I have been thinking about this question since I first started my business. My legacy is something that is really important to me because of my children, I want them to know that their little tiny mom worked hard for them to not have to work in the future. I want my legacy to be very impactful. I would like people to look back at me and remember that they can create their dreams and have the life they want no matter how hard life gets. Olivia’s Nectar will definitely leave a mark on the world that will empower women and men to feel confident and beautiful in their natural state . The most important thing I would like people to remember about me is that I built this this business while having no job, struggling through a pandemic and I still was able to make things happen. I never take no for a answer, and no matter how bad things seem externally I kept a positive mind frame through it all, and was able to make my dreams come true, and that’s really what I would like people to not only remember about me, but about themselves as well!
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.
As I have been journeying more into the Natural Hair Care Business, I have added Hair Loss Services for people who are suffering from hair loss and thinning hair. It has been so amazing I love creating custom formulas for my clients because one size does not fit all when it comes to hair loss. I think what really sets me apart from others, is the fact that I really take the time out to get to know my customers as well as my clients, and I love being involved in their life celebrations. If they have a birthday or baby, etc I like to show Support back because I love pouring into other people. Love is contagious. I have gotten to where I am today in my professional career by really sticking to my principles, and not taking any short cuts when it comes to my business. When I first started, I did think it would be easy, but this is hands down the most hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life, Just when I think I have something on track life strikes, but I overcome it by knowing that it is all a Test, and it will soon pass. I also love listening to motivational speakers in the morning or through out the day when I need some extra inspiration. I have keep a vision board, and when things get too overwhelming I make sure to incorporate meditaion to bring my mind back to center and remember who I am doing all of this for. The most important lesson I have learned through this journey is to show gratitude with each accomplishment. No one owes my anything, so if I get 1 order or 100 I am always so happy and grateful. I would like the world to know that Olivia’s Nectar prides itself on always having their best interest at heart, and that we love to take extra time on choosing our scents for each product collection so that every-time they open a bottle of Conditioner or Hair Oil up, I want them to smile!
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.
Atlanta has some of the best spots, so if my best friend wanted me to take them out, I would definitely want them to see downtown and to experience all the best food and drink spots. For a week trip- Monday we would view the Georgia Aquarium because animals are life! Tuesday we would view the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, and dress up really fancy and after have dinner at Soul Vegetarian. Wednesday we would visit the Botanical Gardens, and then later have a picnic at the Piedmont Park. We would have cheese and wine. Thursday we would experience the night life, and Friday go to the fox theater! Through it all, I would just would want to make sure we are outside hearing the Music and experiencing the different cultures and talking to different people.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to shoutout all of the people who have supported Olivia’s Nectar in any way shape or form, and most importantly I would like to shoutout my Creator! Without them I would have nothing.
