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

Hi Marquisa, the decisions we make often shape our story in profound ways. What was one of the most difficult decisions you’ve had to make?
The most difficult desision I had to make was letting self doubt go and truly beliving in myslef. I feel like we sometimes we are the one thing holding us back. I had to truly belive in myself and the vision. There is no plan b because I will fight each and every day to make this happen. It is difficlut to keep going when you feel like you are not being seen and looking at what others are doing, but if you push through all the self doubt and fear it is light at the end.

What should our readers know about your business?
I am the owner of Lola’s Kisses, we are a nontoxic 100% all natural skin and hair care line infused with CBD. What sets us apart is that Lola’s Kisses was inspired by my daughter’s Lola and Faith. Having daughters totally changed my life, it was the biggest blessing I didn’t know I needed. I am so proud to be able to to show them what it looks like to follow your dreams and make your pathin life. To really show them that if you just keep going and work hard things will come together. Although being a mom and running a business has it challenges, the reward of being someone my girls can look up to makes everythinf worth it.

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?
If I had some freinds come to visit LA our first stop would be the beach, nothig is better then laying in the sun and watching the waves!!! After that we would go do a little shopping, grab a bite to eat, and people watch in Leimert Park. Then complete the night having drinks in Inglewood at Champ City Bar and Lounge.
