Me:  “Tell our readers how you started with your business and what your plans are for 2019? ”
Danielle: When I was younger my career goals were to be an Immigration Attorney, I started school and while going to school I hated it. I said this is not for me. I was bored and didn’t want to fail so I went and got my braiding license since I already knew how to braid hair. And I fell in love from doing hair! I would watch other stylists in the salon that I worked and I would get so inspired! So i stop going to school and invested in my new career! I gained clientele and grew more as a stylist! I decided to go back to school and obtain my cosmetology license and I now currently rent a suite inside of a Barbershop where I am doing great as a cosmetologist. For 2019 I plan on preparing to open my own upscale salon offering hair and aesthetic services and also provide professional products.”

Danielle:  My greatest accomplishment are my children! They are my motivation to do what I do and to grow as a stylist and good person.”

Danielle:  “I consider myself optimistic, I am a person who sees so much potential in myself! I picture a vision of what I want for myself and for my business and I can see great things in the future for me as a professional stylist and a successful business woman.”
Me:  “Is there anything in your business you would like the opportunity to change?”
Danielle:  “Not really but I plan to do more in this business than stand behind the chair. I wanna have my own products as well an educational system for future stylists.”
Me:  “What do you love about your business and why?”
Danielle:  “I love putting a smile on my clients face and what gives me more drive is that fact that they are all super supportive of me.”
Me:   “What was the most difficult thing you ever had to deal with when it comes to your business?” 
Danielle: Unsatisfied and Problematic clients and working for people who were envious.” 
Me:“If there was any advice you would give a young entrepreneur starting out, what would it be?”
Danielle:  “Yes of course! Stay focused, take classes to always perfect your craft and your client is your main priority in this business it always helps to keep them happy! And always be reliable I had to learn that tremendously!”

Like many women, I struggled with chronic BV for years; dragging myself through countless doctor appointments and being prescribed the same expensive medications that didn’t really work. Enough was enough and I finally decided to take matters into her own hands, and reached out to a Herbalist (Bianca)and Yonipops were born! Seeing how well Yonipops actually worked, I came to the realization that I been called upon to do women’s work, leading me to start Yoni Love. Now my Herbalist is creating products that heal and maintain our wombs and vaginas so that women like myself won’t have to struggle to find relief.
