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

Hi Whitney, what matters most to you?
Customer service and consistency are key values to me. Simply because these principles are the most important necessities to have running a business. People will respect you more for the respect you have for yourself and business. I treat each individual the exact same. Not one person can say they had a terrible experience with me. I love to give my clients the best service along with staying consistent to their needs.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My business name is Tonsorial artist which is a Latin word for barber. I feel like my name alone sets me apart from other barbershops because it’s catchy and different, a lot of people don’t know what that word is and become interested by the name. I’m very proud and blessed to be in business since 2019 and still up and running through a pandemic. Hard work, dedication, and consistency has made my professional career soar extremely well, it was not easy but it definitely kept me successful by staying down and being humble to every situation. Through my journey I’ve learned to always keep respect at the top of your values the more respect you show the more you will receive, along with awesome relationships and financial abundance. I want the world to know your health and phyiscal appearance are very important and if you feel that is true come check the Tonsorial Artist out so I can assure you it’s true!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would love to thank my mother the most, family in general but my mom Mrs. Jennie Mckoy has been the best supporter I’ve had from day 1. Considering she has never been an entrepreneur she still has the faith in me I thought I never had. She has definitely been the backbone of my business. Keeping me on top of my game and never allowing me to give up! It’s so important to have that mental support when times are rough and she would always be there. Last but not least my lovely clientele, they rock! Through every transition they were always there financially, mentally, and physically supporting me. For that I’m thankful for each and every one of them.
