On the journey to establishing a thriving business:
When I launched my beauty brand – beautIFU Ennada, 9 months ago it was quite a memorable time for me. Before that experience, I was just a girl with dreams of owning a successful multi-trillion dollar business. Although I haven’t gotten to the trillion-dollar part yet, there’s a multi something in my story now. I remember days that I would sit in my dad’s house in the swamps of a slum and just visualize my dreams. That was after I have done everything physically possible to achieve them. There were days that I would cry and go without food after sending all I had to my family.
But no matter how hard things got, I never gave up. So it was a very memorable day when family friends and the media gathered as I launched my business- beautIFU Ennada. I was inspired to go into hair care after I suffered severe hair loss and couldn’t find any effective remedy. After extensive research, I discovered amazing natural hair-care recipes that became my remedy. This was about two years ago when I also returned to natural hair. I had always hated relaxed hair because of how lifeless it seemed on me. I finally launched my business 9 months ago after I left Big Brother.
