We had the good fortune of connecting with Marandan Ferguson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Marandan, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Taking risk is necessary! I am a jumper, there would be no Marandan Renea if I did not believe in taking risk. The universe is waiting on you. There are levels to EVERYTHING, the more faith you show in your self, the universe has to reciprocate!

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
What sets me apart from other artist in the beauty industry is that I feel that my clients are drawn to me for a bigger purpose. It seems that every man and woman I encounter through my business have large aspirations and dreams that they need assistance sorting out in order to execute! With the over active imagination I have, its and honor and a pleasure to guide them in their process while changing their life through beauty.

It makes me proud that so many customers and beauty peers trust me enough to provide insight for their brands and endeavors.

I got to where I am by taking classes all over the country, taking risk, and sacrifice. There were times I could not afford to even eat while out of town attempting to make connections and expand my knowledge. I also have a family that I would often leave behind which was never easy. I over came my guilty conscious by reminding myself of my “why” I tell my self I’m fighting to be great for a reason bigger than me. Any challenge that arises is easily overcome by the gratitude of what I’ve accomplished along with the satisfaction of knowing the best is yet to come!

I’ve learned you have to keep it moving regardless of whatever. Get back up every time you feel you’ve been knocked down. You must figure out your purpose and map out how to get there, that way when opportunities present themselves that doesn’t serve that purpose, its easy to say no thank you.

I am a wife, mom, and beautypreneur, which means I wear several hats. I’ve gotten very good at juggling them all, so good in fact, other people look to me for guidance to do the same. I want the world to know I did my part in making life a little easier for the people that juggle their purpose, passion, and day to day.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I love to turn up and have a good time on occasions, however, my best friend knows the best time that I would show her is on a beach. Rum punch and manifesting our goals.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Courtney Cherrelle Dial of House of Skin is my best friend and amazing business woman. She grew a small esthetics business into a mega medical/beauty spa in just a few years while in school to receive her degree in nursing. Courtney is currently in the process of purchasing a beautiful property to expand her quickly growing business. Proud is an understatement of what I feel about this blossoming beautypreneur with unmatched determination.
