What area of business are you in?
The area of business I work in is mobile beauty services from Dockyard – St. George’s.
How did the idea for your business come about? Or what sparked a change in your current business?
The idea of my business came about from a family trip down in Barbados as we were getting ready to go out. I was painting my nails and than my aunties wanted to get done, so I decided that when we come back home I’m going start a beauty business.
What were the biggest initial hurdles to building your business and how did you overcome them?
The biggest hurdles to building this business was cash flow and retaining clients. Over the years, from experience and a great clientele, I have put into practice what I’ve learned from my mistakes and clients and have grown in the years.
Anything you would do differently in hindsight?
I would have bought a building but it’s never to late. LOL! All jokes aside, Truthfully speaking focus on sticking with 2 of the products I was trained in.
What would you say was the single most influential factor in your business success?
The single most influential factor in having success is my personality! There’s only one Nikkia and a genuine passion in what I do!
What advice would you give to an upcoming entrepreneur locally or internationally?
The best advice to a future entrepreneur is to do your homework of what it is you want to pursue. Have a plan and execute it! It’s not an easy path but it’s not meant to be. Follow your passion and strive to always be on top of the next idea. Stay focused. Motivate and learn!
Which product or service you offer that you are you most proud of?
The service I am most proud of are my pedicures! I can transform an awful sight to smooth, silky and clean feet. Just ask anyone who’s had the pleasure of being in my care.
Have you worked with me before? If so, how have I helped?
Yes, you have developed my website and encourage me to get into the social media scene.
How would you describe your Instagram page and what do you hope to achieve with it?
My Instagram page is promoting positive vibes and sharing any new products or features of the business. I hope to achieve people’s awareness of how their mental state can change their circumstances.
