Today we’d like to introduce you to Monee’ Sanders.
Monee’ Sanders, Founder, and C.E.O of Alopecian Beauty Co, professional background is a diverse traveling Master Cosmetologist and Philanthropist, She was born and raised in Chicago Illinois. Monee‘ graciously made the move to Atlanta in 2014, to build a new clientele and fulfill her dreams. With Monee’ being such a scholar in school she ends up graduating high school early in 2015, with a 4.0 GPA, and receiving a full-ride college scholarship offer! Monee’ already had her business plan, vision board, and clientele (GlammedByMocha) by the age of 17 years old, so she decided to further her entrepreneurial-ship and keep going instead of accepting the college offer. Monee’ immediately attended cosmetology school in 2015 at Paul Mitchell Atlanta, graduating hair school early as well. Attending Paul Mitchell was just Monee’s way to perfecting her hair skills and getting licensed since she already had a clientele. She also had been making custom wigs since she was 13 years of age in Chicago! With many years of experiencing clients with Alopecia, making wigs and having close family members who suffer from it, She began to grow a sense of need in the community on the cause. “Create Smiles Daily“ is Monee’ slogan because so many women cried and shared stories regarding the hardships of the disease.
Then, it clicked, Monee’ wanted to start a nonprofit and series of events to help spread awareness about Alopecia! The cause wasn’t talked about hardly nor was any known cure or organization regarding it besides the National Alopecia Areata Foundation! Monee’, Our Founder has a deep passion for those who have Alopecia because it is prevalent within her own family. Monee’ mother and grandmother both suffers from hair loss disease. One diagnosed with Alopecia Areata the other diagnosed with Alopecia Universalis. Monee’ has strived to network with a group of professionals whose goals are to show devotion, inspiration, and self-admiration. She serves a platform that gives extreme talent and is detail-oriented. The donors and volunteers love to give great service, helping make many people feel beautiful inside an out. The missions of the organization is to create as many smiles around the world with our custom wigs, educating many on Alopecia, grow our connecting events for the community, and discover a natural plant-based cure for the hair loss disease Alopecia. Monee’ desires to expand the theme extravagance fundraising events named “Alopecian Beauty Mixers” in major cities and countries, accumulating millions of supporters for the cause. She also is in the works commuting to Dermatologists that the wigs become medically recognized so insurance companies can cover the cost for suffers in need of raising self-esteem, comfortable wigs and being stylish. She really makes women, men, and children feel unstoppable. Especially giving ladies that suffer from any hair loss disease that egoism recommended! Monee’s seen traveling back and forth to Atlanta, Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles, and New York, to make business connections. Monee’ spectacular knowledge with healthy hair care and unfailing growing hands is the reason once a client’s in her chair that client is hers forever. Monee’ professionalism and enjoyable personality is what makes her clients adore her mostly.
Monee is an Artist that loves to achieve smiles, polished hairstyles, and egoism. She’s also pushing to open a Two-level Salon and Spa in Buckhead, a Glam Wig Boutique in Miami, and Organic Blowout Bar in Chicago!
Great, 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?
Has it been a smooth road or easy being a Serial Entrepreneur? This is the question everyone wants to know. Personally, I will say nothing that’s worth it is every easy. There will be ups and downs, sleepless nights, cried out pillows and empty pockets on this journey! Your best bet is to get comfortable with the uncomfortable, be a sponge to knowledge, and never give up no matter what! Since I entered entrepreneurship at 17, I was very young and fearless. I have worked in salons (travel to clients in multiple states), barbershops, restaurants, bars, and the medical field (National Certified Phlebotomist). That being said, I’ve also been fired from some of those jobs and left mostly due to a crazy schedule working on my dreams. I never suggest this to anyone friends or family, but like I said I’M FEARLESS, I did what it takes and only made the best decision for me in that specific time frame. One of my biggest struggles during entrepreneurship was actually a heartbreak, crazy to think of it, but that made me hit rock bottom internally. I was hurt for a while, but the other baby I had was my business so I kept that even closer. Life takes you through some storms and most times, you’re alone in these storms. Hey cheer up, storms are only temporary, they never last. If you want ownership or a legacy, you have to decide to jump out on faith. It’s two types of people in life, people who are helping build someone else’s dreams or their busy building there own!
