We had the good fortune of connecting with Nicole Omuteku and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Nicole, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
My thought exactly was, “how can I use the knowledge that I have to help other people.” I went into it very unsure. Like most people deciding not to work a traditional job it’s kind of scary. But that fear was not enough to stop me from changing the lives of women, like the ones I had helped in the past.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Launching my styling business was definitely not easy. I had helped countless women in the past discover their body type, dress for their careers their daughter and son‘s wedding. Yet there was still a repeating thought in my mind that this is way too superficial. So I’m thankful daily for the gratitude that my clients have for my services. Getting dressed is something we’ve all struggled with and often times my clients have establish careers and learning working with a professional to learn how to style their body type for any occasion is often in the final piece to create a life of ease.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I live for the aesthetics. I love St. Regis, The Garden Room, and Bread and Butterfly are my favorite. The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
