What I need help with

My background as an entrepreneur

My current challenges

My current challenge is creating a business plan that will help carry me though all the necessary steps to become a successful entrepreneur. I also need help with a marketing strategy. I know who my target market is, I just need assistance with a strategy that will put my product out there to be seen. I would also like to know how I can use social media to advertise my products. I am also in need of funding. I am not here to ask a mentor for funding but I would like to be shown resources if that's possible. I also need assistance in learning how to keep track of cash flow and how to do taxes.

Actions I’ve taken so far

I have done my research on natural ingredients that I am planning on using in my hair products. I am also looking into working with Libby Labs as they have a lot of ingredients that I am wanting to put in my products. I have not reached out to them but I have done my research on the company. I am also communicating with a friend from Chicago who is working on making a protein powder for body building. He is actually how I found out about mentor programs and Libby Labs.

My future goals

My future goals are to make shampoo, conditioner, leave in conditioner, moisturizer, beard balm and loc mist. I want to provide a product that is aimed toward men also as it seems a lot of natural hair products are marketed toward mostly women. I want to create fragrances that men and women will both appreciate also. I want to thrive and live in abundance as it is my birthright to do so. I would like to do that by creating a product that will give us a reason to love our hair even more.

My motivations to work with a mentor

I am reaching out to find a mentor because I want to start off on the right foot and with confidence. If I were to do this by myself it would be much more stressful and I feel like I would make big mistakes. I also need the motivation to keep going when I feel like things are getting tough. I'm looking to find guidance and encouragement to fulfill my visions of becoming a small business owner.


About my venture

Natural Journey Hair Care (it's not an official name, just an idea)

I am aiming towards creating natural hair care products for men and women. As many of us are starting to wear our natural curls, it's important for us to be able to purchase a product that will help our hair thrive all year round. People with curly hair need more natural options that don't jeopardize the health of our hair. I would love to create a product that doesn't have artificial fragrances or silicones and makes our hair easy to maintain from washing to styling.
