We had the good fortune of connecting with Sededra Arthur and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sededra, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Being a Young entrepreneur is a risk by its self, I say this because when you are young people automatically thinks you are childish, don’t have the right mind yet and or may not be educated enough for a business. I took many risks. In 2019 when I graduated high school I was beginning to open up my first hair boutique at the same time I was attending on going to college ( Georgia State ) I knew I had to choose one at that time. The hardest thing was me believing that my brand would improve if I put my whole 100% into it. I always thought if I didn’t go to college I wouldn’t be successful but I had to take a risk and make my own path. I can say that was the BEST risk I took, you can’t do what you see everyone doing, it’s best to do what’s best for YOU not your mom, dad or grandma or even friends. You have to realize that other people paths aren’t yours! Each person on this earth has a path of their own. The crazy part is many people don’t take the time to actually see what they want to do, but I guess that’s apart of the RISK that some people aren’t bold enough to take.

We treat our customers with respect and we love to have conversations about what’s going on and how they are doing. I believe it’s best to have a real connections with your customers. I will always be grateful about how far I’ve came in the business Industry. The number one thing I can say is to stay Humble, Stay Committed and NEVER give up. That’s what I used another thing I would say is it never compare your business to other people businesses because you never know how long it took them to get where they are. The business industry can be frustrating it’s all about trial & era that is the best way to learn. I would rather fail a couple of times instead of always getting things easy. When I was younger I would have never thought I would be where I am today. My story is so real no celebrity hands out, no famous/ rich family members. Addabangxtensions was started from the Bottom & we are ready to take it all the way to the top
