I grew up with the typical expectations of my African parents wanting me to be either a doctor or an engineer. In fact, I was sent to the US to become a doctor. After going through the motions for a while, I quickly discovered that that route was not meant for me. I wanted to be an entrepreneur and make my own money! Becoming an entrepreneur allowed me to own three salons and beauty supply stores. Because I know what it takes, and the ins and outs of this business, I would like to spare you some of the headaches, time, and energy that you can redirect and place on growing your business. If you are a braider that wants to take her skills to another level and become financially independent, then this book is for you. It doesn't matter if you only have a booth at someone else’s salon, working at your house, or already have a salon that is not really profitable, you will find tips and the correct mindset to make it in the salon/braiding business.
