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

Hi Tamia, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I noticed that many of the natural products offered on the market were expensive, my thought process behind starting my company stemmed from my desire to make readily available all natural, quality products that are affordable.

What should our readers know about your business?
Starting a business is something very special, it takes a lot of patience, work, resilience, and a strong backbone (Laughs). Some of the challenges I have had to face are finding reputable companies to source my ingredients and finding the right packaging and supplies. Also being a small business owner I’ve often had to work with contractors. One particular instance, a week before my initial launch date my graphic designer disappeared, forcing me to push back my launch date by several weeks. Challenges like these we as entrepreneurs face often but rarely share openly. Being an entrepreneur is not for the faint of heart, you have to stay strong and committed with a clear vision of the future despite any obstacles you face. LD Botanicals is an all-natural, handcrafted, skincare line. We specialize in creating nourishing, revitalizing, and moisturizing products to maintain beautiful, healthy skin for diverse skin types. We are proud to be able to provide people with quality products that are effective and affordable. What sets us apart is our focus on the holistic wellness and empowerment of our customers.

Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
The itinerary would include: We would definitely hit the beach for a picnic for starters (and many times thereafter). Japanese garden (in Pasadena) Arboretum HaiDiLao Hotpot (Santa Anita) Iroha Sushi (Studio City, King Crab Roll is a MUST) Afro Haus (An Air BNB experience) Inn of the Seventh Ray lol so many things to do and see.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would LOVE to shoutout my Granny! She has been a huge blessing in my life in general, in addition to that she has encouraged me to stay strong and dedicated throughout the process of entrepreneurship. I am so grateful for the role she has played in my life. Special thanks and a BIG shout out to my amazing Granny, I love you Roxie aka Tootie!
