Today we’d like to introduce you to Shakera Pickett.
Shakera, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
As a child growing up, my dream was always to move to California and attend UCLA, my goal was to become a lawyer. I never imagined being in the Beauty Industry even though I’ve always had a passion for hair. I can remember being a little girl, waking up on Saturday mornings ready to go to the beauty shop. Even though it would sometimes take all day, I never complained because I always loved the outcome. I couldn’t wait to take pictures or go over my cousin’s house to show off. As I got older my love for getting hair done continued. I always enjoyed the experience and being pampered. As an adult in the workforce, keeping my hair maintained became a necessity but it has always been enjoyable. I look at that time as my “Me Time”, a time for me to have some Girl Talk and be pampered. After several jobs and taking several classes nothing seemed right or to be working out. Little did I know that my passion would develop into my purpose. After much thought and consideration, I stepped out on faith to start my own business Kween K Collection. When I started, I didn’t have much knowledge about the Beauty Industry, but I have invested in myself and have taken steps to become a successful business owner. I completed a Small Business Management course and continue to work on learning the ins and outs of the business world. I also attend Networking events and seminars with other Business owners to gain knowledge. I started out with bundles being my only product, but my business has grown, and I’ve branched out to included out beauty products. Kween K Collection is a blessing to me, it’s my passion and my brand. I am an example of how your Passion can become your purpose.
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?
Owning a business has been a journey of ups and down and a learning experience. All the trial and error you first encounter will make you give up. You’ll experience hardship, obstacles, distractions, and decisions that seem impossible but with hard work, smart planning and a great support system that believe in you, you can get yourself on the road to success.
