Today we’d like to introduce you to Shaniell Carter.
Hi Shaniell, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Since a young child, I have always been creative and proactive. My mom would keep me very busy with different projects, arts & crafts, academic games, and things of that nature. I always loved the idea of making my own money, and it was evident that I was going to be a real CEO one day. I remember selling Kool-Aid in foam cups at six years old to my neighbors and to people that lived in the neighborhood. When I was in 9th grade, my mom lost our home that she had invested a lot of money and time into. We were forced to move, she lost her job and we fell into hardship. I would sell different snacks at school to my peers to keep money in my pocket and to help my mom out with small things like gas money. Before things got better, I had to stay with my older cousin for a little while, I remember having to catch the public bus to school every day from Highland Park, Michigan, all the way to Harper Woods, Michigan, which is about a 45-minute commute.
Every day I would carry 3-4 heavy bags with all the snacks I was going to sell alone with my school textbooks. I was determined to make money and make good grades in school, and that’s what I did. This portion of my life, I feel like, really built my character and made me realize how strong I was. I started my first business at 15 years old, baking desserts and making chocolate covered strawberries. I really had no idea what I was doing or where it would take me, but I’m glad I did it because it molded my mindset for the woman I have become today. After baking for five years, in 2018, I decided to start my 2nd business, which I have today called FOREVER Lashed Co, an online business that helps boost the confidence of women and help them “Discover their inner goddess” with our luxurious lashes and healing waist beads. After spending my entire life in Detroit, MI, in February of 2020, I decided to step out on faith and move to ATL. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made, I am now fully tapped into the healthy lifestyle vibe & I recently just launched my brand new business called Kingdom of Kush Temple & Spa, specializing in non-invasive weight loss & detoxing treatments. I love helping people lose weight and gain clarity over their gifts and purpose. I incorporate love and peace into both of my brands and uplifting people is something that I am truly passionate about.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back, would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Building a solid team has been the main challenge. Sometimes it’s hard trying to get others to see your vision but the show must go on.

Any advice for finding a mentor or networking in general?
I was taught your 1st mind is your best mind. Trust yourself and follow your intuition when sharing your energy with other people and vice versa. I personally am always finding new ways to elevate and grow my mind, so when I feel like I have outgrown a person or situation, I simply inner stand that it has served its purpose in my life and I continue to push forward.
