Today we’d like to introduce you to Shammara Bowens.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Shammara. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I remember as a little girl in elementary school going to my Aunt’s Beauty Salon to get my hair styled and the way we paid for our hairstyle was by cleaning her Salon. Fast forward years later and I’m 30 years old visiting my mother in Virginia who is dying from Stage 4 Cancer in May 2015. While visiting her at the hospital, she tells me to go use some of that energy and go clean the house since dad has messed it up. My parents were living in a 3000 square foot home!!! And yes, I cleaned the whole home! June 2015, my mama passed away… I was depressed to the max… the only way I could grieve was by cleaning, listening to gospel music and crying… a lot! During this, while depressed, I’m still working but I’m not focused enough and eventually, I was fired. August 2016, my boyfriend James said to quit the job I was on and focus on my Cleaning Service, so I did. My mama’s eldest sister Deborah, my baby sister Jeanine and myself brainstorm the name I wanted the business to be called. LOVELY because that’s what my mama called her self and wanted her grandchildren to call her. PUSH is what she taught us to do… PRAY UNTIL SOMETHING HAPPENS. I decided to change the meaning of PUSH to Professional Unique Superior Housework! So, there you have it, Lovely PUSH (Professional Unique Superior Housework) Cleaning Services. I have been up and running since August 2016 and still striving to clean up DFW. When it’s time to retire, my children will take over the business. We were born with nothing but I’ll be Damn’d if we with die with nothing, so we PUSH. 😊
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It’s been ups and downs being an Entrepreneur… a black one at that. I’ve learned you can’t please everyone and don’t beat your self up and quit on your dream! Work like you’re broke and Don’t give up!
