When the Best is Available…



On a daily basis we get up and tell ourselves it is going to be a great day! We pray, study, listen to music or motivational audios, eat, exercise, then leave to start the day. The investment will pay off we think. We tell ourselves you got this! We go in the office to begin serving. Some of us are in positions that we are over qualified for but we give our 110%. We check the positions that are available but we think ourselves out of the application. Then we hear about a position that just might be for us but we procrastinate and the window closes.

We have a skill(s) that no one else has and we hide them. They show up every now and then. So you hear your colleagues, family, and friends say you are great at this or that. Unfortunately we bury it under all of the duties we have to complete. Then life happens.

The best is everything people seek. The only way they will know that you are the best is if you let them know. I recently met Chip Foust, (celebrity photographer) and he said “No one wants the second best if the best is available; You have to let them know you are the best!” This was so simple but profound. Many times we hope that someone will see us or notice our skills. The day for that is over! You must do what you have the skills to do. Stop holding back on what you need to showcase. Let them know you are here!


Don’t bury it!

From Stress to the Best

Day after day being stressed out about money, vision, time, and future! I had to do something. If I was going to do it I had to do something great. Have you ever second guessed yourself, your vision, or everything around you? Oh come on, be honest! We have to be honest with ourselves first. Everyone loves to tell the good news never wanting to express the not so good news. Listen God has a way of getting you trust the process. So confessing is one of the most humbling experiences.

After going over my skills that exist inside of me then realizing what I love most…helping people. I was ready then because I’m doing what I love again! Whatever you do; do not bury your what you have. God given talent. The consequences are real. Therefore do not play around. When you do not know what to do. You are stressed out. When the job show they do not value you. Take a pay cut. Give someone else the promotion. Then move from stress to the best!

From Stress to the best helps other small business owners such salons, online, clothing designers, makeup artist, barbers, and more grow themselves through business! We would love to work with you!

Spinning your Wheels

Have you ever day dreamed about what you want and where you want to be? The sun is shinning and you are sitting in your car about to get out and then you have a flash of a vision of you being successful. It’s an idea! Then you realize you have been in the same position for about 5 minutes. The process begins! You are excited and ready to go. Well you start thinking…how can I do that? Then it’s what will they say? Next it’s who needs that? Finally it’s that will not work!

Then process repeats for years. Well some ideas you do accomplish. For the most part you put it on hold. My question to you is “Are you spinning your wheels of dreaming and not believing, being & doing?”

The greatest achievement is believing in yourself. Once you believe you can become what you believe. Lastly you can do what you believe. Dreams keep coming but if you do not believe you are able to do it or if it is for you then you will keep dreaming and spinning your wheels.

We out here!

One day I was sitting home trying to figure out my next move. How will I make it through the week successfully. Knowing what I am capable of achieving I still found it difficult to get motivated. After pondering for as long as I could I jumped up and began to get dress. Then left home heading to start applying some of my plans.

It is amazing when we have plans we’ve written down or have in our head that seem not come to pass. When we began to talk to God and listen to him the direction becomes a little clearer. The motivation level kicks in and we know that we are on the right road.

Have you ever felt like you were not motivated to go to work, to run your business, or just take care of personal needs? Or everything you try to accomplish has a lid on it?

Just know our plans are good but his plans are great! When I started doing what I was instructed to do my day began to get brighter. I also followed instructions. Now everything did not happen in one day but I was a little more focused and alert.

My confidence sky rocketed!

HAIR is one of the most influences in our country. I’m sure in other countries as well but in the US it is a billion dollar industry. The trends throughout the years has caused a major increase in the industry financially. Over the years trends have changed from press n curl to unprocessed hair weave; where we are today. Weave has been worn by every gender, various age groups and most every nationality. Hair loss has caused many reasons for hair weave to be apart of an individuals’ daily routine. Some say due to hair weave hair loss has increased. Making a major impact in the hair industry almost epidemic. As well as making cosmetologist more cautious in hair styles, hair products, and more alert during consultations. Education is a key factor in the hair industry. Therefore professional cosmetologist should stay educated, with the intent to educate their clients.  As professionals are developed, cosmetology school does not end on graduation day. Actually it begins!

When the table is set…



When the table is set everything is a go. The cloth is ironed, utensils are polished, the food is garnished, and chairs are pulled out ready to be filled. Sounds like an evening of fun and cheer. People are laughing and eating anticipating room for dessert. Oh what a great time to share!

Most families will not have this experience for whatever reason. So let’s be sensitive to one another. It doesn’t matter the age, race, gender, or creed. Be kind to one another. Let’s make a joyful noise through peace and love. If we start then maybe it will spread throughout the world. Are you ready?

Live in Color!

Gabrielle Calloway

The cosmetic industry since 2002-2016 is a billion dollar industry in the US. The ancient Egyptians used copper and lead ore to create the world’s first cosmetics. The scientifically advanced products of today that can do everything from hide pores and smooth complexions, makeup has been an integral part of humankind for thousands of years. To the point I started looking at old movies to see how much makeup made a difference in each character. I discovered during those times men wore makeup and no one had a problem with it because it was part of the process in television.

In showbiz you had to look the part for the cameras. You were not going to embarrass the director. I began to look at the details of the faces and the hairstyles. Now the hair was not as in tact as the makeup on the some shows. The eyebrows were on point even during those sitcoms. Looking back at Andy Griffin, Goodtimes, Leave it Beaver, and Sanford and Son showed that makeup was important because everyone had some sort of the makeup even the black and white shows. You could see color on the women’s lips or some sort of shine.  Now it wasn’t overwhelming but one character in particular “Florida Evans” on Goodtimes wore heavy eye shadows. Lots of color. I would like to out that she was of a dark complexion.  Somehow women of darker complexion became shy of color. On the show they did not hesitate to show the features in her face as well the lighter complexion women on the show. Not sure how the influence hit the airwaves that darker skin was not popular.

Now that we have embraced all skin color in all arenas beauty has expressed more than skin deep. Just like our companies slogan beauty is “The Look Inside!” We now see versatility on TV, magazines, and everyday. Be proud of who you are and live our loud!
