Today we’d like to introduce you to NaTasha Cameron.
NaTasha, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Born and raised in Washington, DC I didn’t have it easy growing up. We grew up in my Grandmothers house with other family members until my parents separated and my mom relocated us to NC. My mom was a stay at home mom most of my life and although it isn’t an easy task, I knew very early that I wanted to do something different. I started working at the age of 14 and never stopped.
Fast forward to adulthood. I moved to the Atlanta area with my husband and children in 2012. Not satisfied with working for someone else, I started the journey of becoming a business owner so I could have something to pass on to my children. My goal was to create at least seven streams of income that would provide financial stability for my family.
After opening businesses in the field that I had worked in for almost 10 years, in 2018, I started researching beauty supply stores and quickly learned that there were very few African American owned – only 3 percent. I saw this as a challenge and immediately started doing my homework to open AD Beauty & Hair, LLC to bridge the gap.
AD Beauty & Hair was formed to create a legacy for our children’s, children and to help build businesses and bring jobs to African American communities.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Owning any business takes hard work, sacrifice, and dedication – especially when it’s a field you aren’t used to. The biggest challenge for any business owner is when family and friends don’t support your efforts/dreams but that quickly fades once you focus on your goals.
Many people have been receptive to AD Beauty & Hair’s mission and we are forever grateful.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with AD Beauty & Hair – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
AD Beauty & Hair, LLC is a family owned and operated online beauty and hair supply company committed to providing excellent customer service while offering quality products at reasonable prices. As with many companies, our number one goal is to stay in business, which means our number one priority is customer service. Our commitment to instant customer communication is essential to building lasting relationships.
Some of the things that set our beauty supply store apart from others are the store owners are my youngest two children- Alima & Dylan. Dylan does most of the day to day operations regarding packing and shipping products. He also assists with product pick up and inventory. It is essential to teach our children about business ownership and finances at an early age.
Additionally, we have programs like AD BEAUTY & HAIR CARES. This program was created to teach children the importance of recycling and to provide a FREE method of recycling for hair care, skin care, and cosmetic products packaging.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
Our focus is to continue getting our name out there so our store is the one stop shop for all beauty & hair and health & wellness needs. We plan to open our first storefront in August 2019, so our customers can enjoy in-person shopping, as well as online shopping.
