How old were you when you started and where did your idea come from?
I was 10 years old when I created my skin and hair care business after trying lots of different creams and lotions for my extremely dry skin. After showers or even washing my hands my skin would be so dry that it would it would itch and crack. So, I was determined to find my own solution. I did some research online for natural products and came across Shea Butter and Coconut Oil. With the help of my mom, I was able to experiment with different mixtures and fragrances.
What was the biggest mistake you made and what did you learn from it?
The biggest mistake I made was not writing down the proper measurements. What I have learned from it was that I should write down the measurements.
What are your future plans for the business?
My future plan is to move my production to a warehouse where I could hire and train girls that are my age. I want to teach them to be in business for themselves making and selling Dreah Dreah Shea Butter Products.
Any advice for other girls starting a business?
My advice for girls starting a business is if you have an idea put that idea into action. Ask someone who is close to you to help make it happen.
