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

Hi Rachel, what makes you happy? Why?
There are several things that make me happy, but honestly my number one choice would have to be making others happy. When I started my Mobile Stylist business I wanted to help those who were not able to get out and get their hair done and feel good while looking good. So I started with elderly woman, college students, and single mothers.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
What sets me apart is I’m Mobile. I travel to my clients homes. Safety purposes and also for them to be in the comfort of their own home and not have to wait hours for others to get their hair done before them. I started with my family and my best friends mother and they told a friend who told a friend who told a friend! LOL I am beyond thankful because it just continues to grow!. COVID put a lot of businesses in a pickle, but it helped me thrive!

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?
Can’t do anything in that area! My best friend is from Atlanta so she knows more than me! LOL Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My family and my best friend have always had my back on my dreams and career. But I would like to send a special shout-out to Morgana Freeman. While working under her in a salon, she always told me I would do great things and to never give up. Trust God and hold my head high. She told me push forward and never let anyone pull me away from what I love!
