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

Hi Natalie, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
My thought process was you wake up every morning to make someone else’s business maintain the success they have built for themselves. Why not put that same energy. 8 hours in a day for yourself.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
What I am most proud about when it comes to my lash extension and body Sculpting business is the journey. The journey of learning more about what it takes to make my business successful. The ups and downs.

I got to where I am today by sacrificing a lot of time. Not doing the things that I wanted to do like spending money on things I didn’t need. I invested in myself, my talent, and my worth.

This is not an easy process. So many think they just get their LLC and it takes off over night. It takes years and years for you to see the money you invested In yourself return. Long tired nights and days but in the end its worth it. I overcame by praying hard, having those in my corner who stayed positive and motivated me. Pushed me hard and never allowed me to stop. Their belief in me made me work harder.

The lessons that I learned are enjoy your journey. The good, the bad, the ugly and even the disappointments. Cherish those moments because they make you stronger.

The world should know I am a very organized and well put together business woman. I believe in amazing customer service on and off the hours of work. I pride myself in making sure all my clients are treating professionally and they leave knowing they have paid for services they are out seeking. Not to mention a smile on their faces.

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?
Being that I am a very low key person but I have my moments of wanting to get out. I would take my best friend to a nice spa so we can get beautiful and relaxed at the same time. Grab some brunch. Of course then head to do some shopping. End the night at a beautiful lounge of jazz music and dance the night away to some mellow blues.

However, I would be open to going to the beach or staying in and having a girls night full of movies and gossip.
