It's Our Business to Build Businesses

We are thrilled to introduce our 8-week entrepreneurship incubator program. Designed with fashion and beauty brands in mind, this learning intensive focuses on the conceptualization, development and launch of product or service-based businesses in the Fashion + Beauty Industry.

The idea of this incubator program sparked while our founder, Adrienne Hill worked with hair and beauty brands with sister company Brand My Bundles. She noticed that there was an abundance of hair and beauty schools that taught technical skills and salon suites that encouraged entrepreneurship, however there was no place to cultivate knowledgable entrepreneurs after they completed beauty school.

The gap between beauty school and owning your own business is a huge one, and the incubator program is designed to bridge that gap one business at a time.

During the 8-week course, students will focus on a different aspect of business each week while working hands-on to build their brands. They also will have perks like access to our new dry salon suite, discounts on space bookings, one-on-one mentorship and more! The first session begins March 9, 2019 and will continue every two months throughout 2019.

Applications are now open for the Fashion + Beauty Incubator program, and the deadline to apply is March 1st. For eligibility requirements, tuition costs and a detailed overview of the program, please visit the link below.

Trust Your Divine Timing

IMG_2085.jpg

If you are reading this, chances are you are on an entrepreneurial path, or interested in starting one which distinguishes you from a lot of people. What I have noticed about entrepreneurs is that we have one mutual dot that connects us all- one trait that if you ask anyone in pursuit of anything entrepreneurial, they will have it. That connecting dot is vision.

In order to be in business, you have to envision an entity that does not yet exist and work towards making it become what you have seen. This is the fun part. We write the grandiose plans, craft illustrious vision boards, pray, and even do the work. We hustle and we look forward and press towards the mark. We champion for our namesake and our children’s children.

But what happens when your life starts to play catch up with your dreams? What becomes of your vision board when the mark you were pressing towards seems further and further away? That’s the part of being a visionary that no one talks about - the frustrating, not-so-pretty part.

You see, as visionaries, we are gifted with seeing things with a wide lens. Where some people have to go A-B-C to reach their goals, Visionaries map out A-Z and work their way backwards from where they are trying to go.

But the working backwards can get hard, and lonely, and confusing. You know what you’ve seen in your vision but in a society of microwaved/instant everything, waiting on things to manifest can be a chore.

I get it, sis. HOWEVER.

You’ve got to learn to trust your own timing. If things are on a certain pace, there is a reason why. Sometimes you have to be processed in order to walk into your next season of wins. Sometimes the old you, the old ways of doing things, and old mindsets have to shift in order to even be able to contain your “next.”

So instead of feeling weary about your wait, lean into trying to understand the “why” of your wait. What lessons are there to be learned in this season that you’ve avoided? What do you need to learn or do to go to the next level? Once you focus on doing the work to get there on a fulls-spectrum level, you will truly understand divine timing. You won’t worry about what other people are doing because you know that literally all things work together for your good.

This picture represents divine timing personified. Joani Johnson is an Aboriginal elder that models at the beautiful age of 64. She is gorgeous and living her absolute best life, in her own divine timing!

What’s for you is for you, sis. Trust that you are on the right path and that ultimately you are moving towards your greater purpose. Have a great week!



Why entrepreneurial wellness should be your top priority as an entrepreneur

SoulSunday.jpg

Entrepreneurial wellness is a thing. As the saying goes, you cannot pour from an empty cup, and if there is any type of profession that can attest to the cup getting a little empty from time to time – that is an entrepreneur.

As an entrepreneur – we are used to wearing most, if not all the hats. We have multiple job descriptions and depending on the day, our skillsets and stressors can be arranged in a multitude of ways. This is why it is important to find balance outside of your day-to-day flow. Finding balance in the form of self-care can be the difference in a productive or stressful entrepreneurial journey.

In entrepreneurship, it is important to take time to reflect and recharge along the journey, and Soul Sunday is designed to do just that.  Hosted at The Brand Box Club, Soul Sunday is an opportunity for you to reflect, release, recharge and regroup as you prepare for the month ahead with other entrepreneurs in an intimate setting.

Here's What To Expect at Soul Sunday:

  • Group Therapy where you can be honest about the hills and valleys of entrepreneurship

  • Meditation to release the past and welcome in the future

  • Personal 30-Day Affirmation Exercise to keep you motivated 

  • A Journaling Prompt to stir your inner ambition

  • 30-Day Goal Setting Prompt to make your ambitions tangible

  • Refreshments; Teas Water and Fruit to keep you refreshed and hydrated

All attendees will also receive their own journal to use during and after the event. 

Tickets are limited and only $15 – register today!
