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

Hi Teresha, what’s the most important lesson your business/career has taught you?
Having Faith In Myself. At times I was questioning if this was the right decision to become an entrepreneur but I had to remind myself to trust God and the process. To be patient with myself when obstacle occurs and situations that are out of my control.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
BeautyByTeresha is more then a beauty spa, it’s about sisterhood. Yes, I provide body waxing, makeup, and skin care but I also provide a ear to listen, a shoulder to cry on and support for my clients. It’s about the connections I have with my ladies.

With growing my clientele, it’ was not easy and some months were slower then others but this is where word of mouth plays apart. Taking courses from other esthetician’s that has been in the game longer then you. Joining Facebook groups, that allows you ask for help and not feel judged.

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.
Living in New Jersey, there’s always new restaurant opening, we would definitely take an adventure on trying new food out together. My best friend introduced me into hitching, this a opportunity to take trip into the wild life. I live close to New York so not telling what’s in stored in for us. Honesty I’m not a planner, I’m just whatever the day has for us. The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My Parents! When I decided to embark on this journey of working for myself, my parents invested in me. This was the courage I needed to truly step out of my comfort zone because they believed in me. My parents are definitely one of kind and I thank God daily for their love and support.
