We had the good fortune of connecting with Shaded by milli and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Shaded by milli, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
What comes in mind when I think about risk. some common things that most new entrepreneurs has experienced impostor syndrome. Worry,doubt,& having the willingness to learn things that you’ve never learned before or being exposed to.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m excited because I’ve witnessed my own growth in business & I build cliente not just local, but from other cities & states.. I studied a lot whether it was YouTube or watching others along their journey.
I now teach others how to braid treat & grow their hair.
I have my own hair products line.which promotes extreme hair growth. (Shaded by milli hair products)
My art is HAIR!
I’ve learned about different types/textures of hair. I’ve learn what it takes to grow hair! When it comes to my art I’m passionate..
The mental Capacity of what hair can do is powerful .
Example: during the pandemic many women around the world was worried about their hair or how they looked during quarantine .
I was 9yrs old when I learned how to do hair, I didn’t like waking up in the morning for school,which required me to get up earlier to get my hair done. I use to play in my hair at night (I would always get in trouble) I use to play in my cousins hair as well. One day I woke up with my hair done and I noticed I didn’t get fussed at. So I continued! I was self taught!!
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.
We would do BOURBON STREET/FRENCH QUARTERS.. it’s my culture, it’s always something to do there! we would go to Oceana grill or “port of call “to eat. grab a few Hang grenades to drink.
Do a tour on the horse and Carriage.
Ride the trolley.
Ride the site seeing bus.
Check out different talents on each corner of bourbon.
Check out the live bands in the French Quarters.
When I was younger going to bourbon & walking down canal was fun. Super fun!
We would go to SAKS I love to shop
walk the river walk.
We would Also hang out around magazine street,lake view area. Lake view is a relaxing mood, live band and the lake (I love water sounds) plus drinks!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
