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

Hi Karen, what’s the end goal, career-wise?
My end goal is to establish Don Extensions store location in multiple states and become a distributor. I want to be a multi-million dollar chief executive officer by the end of my career.

What should our readers know about your business?
After 3 months of launching , I was able to market my business by having my first photoshoot and Black Friday sale. My perseverance and humbleness has help me stay consistent. Starting my business was quite difficult due to wanting to provide high quality merchandise , it was hard to find the perfect vendor for me. Trust in your brand and never limit yourself because the sky isn’t the limit is the lesson I learned. What I want the world to know about my brand, my mission is to exceed my clients expectations.

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 would take my best friend to Milk Money Bar in Fort Lauderdale for bunch, Boat Ride at South Beach , and Dukunoo in Wynwood for nightlife and vibes!

I would like to dedicate my shoutout to my mom and best friend , who have shown me mentorship and support. In addition , I would like to recognize ” Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert T. Kiyosaki who provided me knowledge about finance.
