What makes her a boss
Q: Tell us about your business.
A: ONLO is on location hair, makeup and massage. We specialize in Bridal, Editorial, and Wellness. Headed by myself, we are a team of well seasoned and licensed professionals who use their expertise to accommodate any size wedding party, photo shoot or client need.
Q: What accomplishment are you celebrating right now?
A: My rebrand! I'm feeling good — feeling okay. Getting good feedback, and that's key.
Q: What keeps you motivated?
A: Happy, confident, and beautiful clients seeing themselves as they deserve for what is usually one of the most special days in their lives. It's super fulfilling and rewarding to have that bond with someone.
Q: What's one tip you want to share with other entrepreneurs?
A: Don't take every single bit of advice your given. Everyone has something to say about what you do or don't do. Sometimes you just have to go with your gut and believe in your own ideas. Innovation looks and feels different.
Q: Why should others join us for lady boss?
A: It's amazing being together with lady bosses that are in all different stages of their businesses and lives. It feels great to know you can soak up others experiences, ask questions, and figure out problems with the help of a community. I also really love it because — as a person who works alone most of the time — it's a good reminder of the camaraderie we have as women supporting women.
