I had the honor of being interviewed by The Couple-preneurs Show! In our conversation I share about how I manage a 9-5, marriage, and entrepreneurship simultaneously. Click The Couple-preneurs Show to hear how I show up for all three!
I’m currently offering a FREE copy of my hair accessory styling guide! This is a concise “no fluff” guide that I have created for natural hair women who style with hair accessories. As naturals, we can’t take the “one size fit all” approach when it comes to hair accessories.
In the downloadable guide I share what naturals should consider when styling with and purchasing hair accessories. I offer advice on styling with headbands, headwraps, and hair jewelry. I also provide styling tips that will minimize damage to kinky, coily, and curly hair.

The Vine Events entrepreneur support group Digital Marketing On A Budget (DMOB) has completed our first marketing challenge! During June, I challenged our group members to create a promotional video for their brand/business by the end of the month. At the beginning of each week, members were given a task to complete by the end of the week. Daily post relating to the week’s task was shared to assist members in getting the ball rolling. Below is a snippet of our weekly tasks.
Week 1: Challenge participants had to decide what they wanted to promote; whether it was a product, event, contest, or service. Everyone was encouraged to keep their script simple and concise.
Week 2: Challengers had to choose a video platform. Daily post about smartphone apps, laptop software, and live streaming assisted with their decision.
Week 3: Things got real; participating members task was to create their promo video. They were encouraged to let their personality shine through!
Week 4: Participants had a chance to tie up loose ends! Through out the challenge, group members were encouraged to work at their own pace and to keep things simple.
I truly enjoyed sharing this creative experience with DMOB group members. I chose to make a promo video for Accented Glory’s NEW Styling Guide! As I stated in previous posts, myself and other group members are not too tech savvy, so user friendly platforms are a must. With that being said, I chose PowToon as my platform; it was easy to use and easy on my budget. Check out my promo video below!
