Opening a business is not easy. It takes months of planning, meetings, and spending. Anyone will tell you it’s hard and “I hope you know what you’re getting yourself into.” What most people don’t realize or see is the ease of living your passion. I believe that good will come to those who work hard, enjoy every minute, and share their knowledge with the world. There will be problems I’m sure, but how boring would life be if everything was so perfect all the time. You live and you learn. Those who are not learning from their mistakes are obviously sleep walking through life.
St. Louis is now the official home of Thirteenth and Washington, a beauty-fashion- wellness co op. My dream was to create an inspiring environment for professionals in the creative industry to live their dreams of running their own business. I wanted to work with people who had the same entrepreneurial passion!
