Tenesha's story

I’m a single mom who was raised in the Inner Cities of Los Angeles and Compton by a hardworking mother who worked in both the Healthcare and Beauty Industries for over 30 years. Sadly, my mom died of Gastric cancer and her passing gave me that extra push to start my Beauty Supply Business journey so I can continue her legacy as well as leave a legacy for my children. I also drew motivation as a single mother from some difficult and challenging times. I lost my mom at a young age and had been a recipient of housing assistance. I always knew that that part of my life was temporary and God had so much more for me and my children. Those two things were also my inspiration to open my business. I am committed to inspiring single mothers that they too can obtain entrepreneurship and become successful business owners despite their challenges while growing up. Ever since I made the decision to start my Beauty Supply Business, I have not looked back and my determination to become successful has been my driving force. I put in work daily and continue to strive hard for the full establishment and success of the business.
