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

Hi Shayla, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Hello my name is Shayla Foreman from Pittsburgh, PA and ” I am a risk taker”, ok lets say a serial entrepreneur, CEO of S-Spa of PGH LLC and Ink District LLC. Entrepreneurs are risk takers think about it… you start by utilizing your saving, applying for business loans, leaving the job you’ve been with for the past 5-10 years, signing the lease to your new commercial space, even applying and paying for your business to become registered with the State and or Trademark. Those actions are all risks which cause Entrepreneurs to be risk takers.

Being a serial risk taker has made my life and career blossom. ” Be the energy you want to attract” that’s the motto I use in everything I do in life. Being able to use my risk taking abilities in the right way. First by opening my Hair Salon S-Spa of PGH LLC 10 years ago, using all of my savings, and having trust in myself along with using my “GIFT” my purpose. I just knew it would work. Boom 5 years later I became a Permeant Makeup Artist ( PMU) and educator. I finally found my PEACE that was relatable to my hobby painting art. After perfecting my artistic skills it was time to open a PMU studio which I named Ink District LLC …. Take risk they say, I knew I had to find a balance through it all family and businesses. Set a realistic schedule that was strict but could be flexible still remaining true to what my business missions stood for, also meeting the needs of my family, If I can do it you can too! Take the Risk you’ll never know unless you try it. Turn your DREAM into a goal, your Goal into a plan, your PLAN into a business = SUCCESSFUL ENTREPRENEUR!

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I am the owner of S-Spa of PGH LLC ( Hair Salon) and Ink District LLC ( PMU Studio) located in Pittsburgh, PA. I am so excited that I have a great team! We all have a great part in the operation of both businesses. To get where I am today took a lot of risk, It’s not always easy but let me tell you its definitely worth the fight. Especially seeing your team prosper, elevating in all aspects of life, utilizing the gift you were giving to make people “enter amazed – exit transformed mentally and physically”!! I’ve learned you have to listen to yourself you have the answer right within you, Risk the time to sit still, reflect, then react. Always – Be the energy you want to attract.
