Meet Ashlee Jones of It’s All Love
I homeschooled my last two year of high school, and while I was home I had begun experimenting with things (i.e. eggs, mayonnaise, coconut oil, honey) I already had around the house. I had just went natural towards the end of my sophomore year, so that year after I had time to play mad scientist with my recipes and see what worked and what didn’t.
One of my biggest struggles would have to be the learning curve that I’m still going through. I didn’t go to school for business or anything like that so there somethings (maybe a lot) I don’t know about or how to handle on the business end of things so that puts me at a slight disadvantage. Another thing is the marketing half, I have to work on being a lot more active on my instagram page because right now that’s the main source of how I’m promoting my myself and my brand, and how can I promote myself and keep people interested if I’m not updating regularly?
I specialize in making hair products for naturals who are on the kinkier end of the spectrum, not only for them but definitely catered towards them. Not only do I want to give them products that actually perform in their hair but I also want to teach them how to take care of their on a day to day basis. I have a YouTube channel (Ashlee A’mya) where I do tutorials on my hair (and makeup,) and hope it’s actually helping those who happen to come across them. I think my proudest moment will forever and always be watching my sister fall in love with her 4c hair by showing her the best way to take care of her hair and how it’s easier than most people might think.
I think I’d consider myself successful when I’m able to make an impact on people on a global scale. And by impact I mean in anyway I can whether it be helping them to love their hair, themselves, or helping them through things they may be dealing with. Once I’m able to share what knowledge that I do have and I’m able to extend whatever wealth I may come into with people who really need it and give back to my family and community, I’d consider myself successful then.
