Today we’d like to introduce you to Megan Hollis.
Hi Megan, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
Always moving to the beat of my own drum, I never liked to follow the rules but more so of making my own. Born and raised in Braceville/Warren, Ohio, I always had a passion for hair. I remember sitting in church (First Baptist Church Braceville) and instead of paying attention, I would examine the church member’s hair styles and think what I would of done differently if I was their hairstylist. It wasn’t until 2014 in hair school (Raphael’s Beauty Culture Inc) where I fell in love with bundles and different extensions. So why not turn it into a business, because I knew standing behind a chair wasn’t something I saw myself doing for 30+ years. I wanted something where I could sleep, be on vacation and money, is still coming in. It was a win-win situation for me.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The road to success is never easy, but it’s about how bad do you want it. The late Madam CJ Walker once said, “I got my start by giving myself a start” Nothing good ever comes easy and if it comes easy, then it’s no good. Having a someone special in your life who believes in you and wanted to add value to your business is and has been huge blessing. Never allowing me to get comfortable or being okay just where you are. She literally made sure I had all the necessities to start my business. Everyone has to start somewhere (Ex. Before you can move to Louis you just may have to carry Michael Kors) Just trust the process! 2015 I took the initial shot to launch my business, I researched the business, did a website and all. I ended up listening to others and their opinions on what to do, so bad that I got discouraged and gave up. NEVER GIVE UP IN ANYTHING YOU WANT TO DO! Pray about it, believe it will happen, speak it into existence and it will happen! Manifest!

Have you learned any interesting or important lessons due to the Covid-19 Crisis?
Live your life to the fullest and be the best that you can be. Dealing with the passing of my Aunt Angela due to Covid really woke me up to life, she was one of the closest to me, literally meant the world to me. When she passed away, instead of drowning in sorrow, I buried myself in my laptop working on my brand. Little did I know that was the push I needed to make my business and dream finally become my reality. Our family called her the “social butterfly” hints the butterfly that’s apart of my logo.
