We had the good fortune of connecting with Romello Tilghman and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Romello, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
Well my original thought process was to honor my grandmother who unfortunately lost her battle due to cancer. She had a love and passion for all natural skin care and hair care products and once I got older I started getting to as well . After seeing the benefits and the improvement in my skin I figure why not. That couple with the feed backs that I was getting from family and friends further my drive to move forward.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I most proud of my longevity thus far, I started my business not even a year before the pandemic and instead of my business taking a turn negatively my customer base actually increased. I got to where I am today because my drive and passion for what I do. The benefits and feed back that my customers give fuel my passion and drive to keep going . The lesson I learned on the way the way is to never give up, to always stay true to myself and always be willing and ready to take constructive criticism . I would love the world to know that this was and still is my passion, That I continue to use the best ingredients that will care for and nature your skin.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would start our breakfast/ brunch at breakfast at breakfast at barneys maybe get some bottomless mimosa . We would have to visit Sixflags, Take them out to suit lounge I am always down for a good time any and everywhere I am at.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My first shoutout would be to my grandmother because she was my inspiration. Second would have to be my mother for unconditional love and support, for my being my backbone , sponsor, tester just being my everything and more. To my Brother Rakhim , my bestfriends (Jordan, Vonte, Jeremy, Dj), My cousins (Brittany, Tuesday, Destiny). Lastly, I would love to send a special shoutout to my customers for their feed and continue support.
