We had the good fortune of connecting with Adrienne & Brittany Hughes and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Adrienne & Brittany, how do you think about risk?
Life is about taking risk. Some people are afraid of taking risk and rather play it safe, staying in their comfort zone. We both feel that in order to achieve our goal, we had to be willing to pursue our passion while afraid, and in many times of uncertainty. We pushed beyond the unknown to build a brand that is becoming recognized across the country today.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Nzuri Body Essentials is a natural bath and body care line created by a mother-daughter duo based in Chicago, IL. What sets us a part from other bath and body brands is that we bring both aspects of skin care and aromatherapy together to create quality products for healing and maintaining healthy skin using natural ingredients. Four years ago, we had no clue where our journey of entrepreneurship would take us. We’ve had several ups and downs, like any business, several lessons learned. The road to success no matter the industry is never easy. A huge lesson learned was to obtain references and research first when working with companies to further your brand/business. We want the world to know what we are a mother-daughter duo based in Chicago, IL, who’s mission is to inspire and motivate other mothers and daughters to pursue their dreams and find ways to create generational wealth for their future. Our brand takes pride in creating luxury products for all skin types. We promote the importance of self love and self care through our products, allowing you to create the ultimate spa experience in the comfort of your home or on the go.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
