We had the good fortune of connecting with Tiera Lamb and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tiera, how did you come up with the idea for your business?
The idea came from a place of need. I’ve tried several different lotions, creams, oils etc. nothing worked long term for me. I found myself having to reapply every 20 mins or so. I have dry sensitive skin so I have to be very careful with what I put on my skin. After several failed products I decided to do make my own body butter with the ingredients that works best my skin. I wanted it to be whipped and easy to apply,non greasy, and fast absorbing. I wanted it to smell good to the point where I felt good putting it on. And more importantly I wanted it to last longer than 5 hours and have long lasting effects that would help heal my dry patches and skin conditions. After years of trial and error Body Beautee Whipped Body Butter was born. The perfect non greasy whipped texture, a smell that makes you feel beautiful and ready for whatever, long lasting moisture, amazing skin benefits, and a glow like no other
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I believe what sets me apart from others is me. No person is the same and no business is the same. We all offer different scents, ingredients, textures and more. This industry is big enough for all of us and I love the different energy and qualities we all bring that sets us apart from one another.
I am most proud of myself! Being an entrepreneur is no joke and i questioned myself several times before stepping out on faith and after. I am proud of the growth I’ve made in my business and in me as a person.
I am most excited what’s to come. I have so many plans and goals set for my business and I can’t wait to share them with the world.
I truly believe what got me to where I am today is God, my support team and my customers. My customers feedback play a big role because I listen and take action. Customer feedback is so important to me and my business growth.
Was it easy? Absolutely not, but I thank God for every win and every fall.
The hardest thing is time management. Being a wife, daughter, full time employee and an entrepreneur can be a lot to juggle sometimes. Time management is very important for my mental health and my business. You can’t give your best to anyone including your customers, if you aren’t right within. It took me awhile to figure it out but once I did things become much easier for me in all areas of my life.
My name is Tiera Lamb, I am from Detroit, MI and I am the owner of Body Beautee. All of my products are hand made with love and filled natural ingredients to nourish the skin. My skin care line includes but it not limited to deep moisturizing Whipped Body Butter, body oil, exfoliating sugar scrub and body polish.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Detroit is filled with so many great spots to eat and enjoy good company. I would first take them to DOSE in downtown Detroit to shop a few Detroit owned brands. After that I would take them to THE BLOCK for brunch and a blueberry mimosa. I love everything on their menu. Head over to the west side and enjoy a few rounds of bowling with The worlds first mobile bowling alley Luxury Strike. I would then end the night at EastEats with food, music, wine, good vibes and a good bonfire.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My husband, dad, and my close friends have all been my driving force. Without them I probably wouldn’t been doing this article. I am blessed to have an amazing support team thats not afraid to tell me when something isn’t it, isn’t working, and when I’m slacking. They are also there to pray with me , cheer me on when Im being my biggest critic and so much more. Shoutout to y’all.
